Applegate #Wienervention 2014: Great Organic Hotdogs

Are you a hot dog eater?  Be honest, do you enjoy a good dog or do you have a hard time thinking about what is in those dogs?  I am one of those people who have always had difficulty with the concept, that was until I found Applegate Organic and Natural Hot Dogs.  There are FOUR ingredients in Applegate's Hot Dogs, ready?
  • Beef
  • Salt
  • Water
  • Spices
Here's what they DON'T have:
  • Hormones
  • Antibiotics
  • Sodium Nitrate
  • Sodium Diacetate
  • Sodium Erythorbate
  • Hooves
  • Mechanically Separated Meat
"Ketchup, mustard, relish, even cheese …whatever your favorite topping is, it’ll taste great on our Natural Beef Hot Dogs. This classic frank is made from quality cuts of natural beef with no added nitrites or chemical preservatives. It’s also lower in fat than most conventional beef franks. Finally, the guilt-free hot dog is here!"
If you're more of a visual learner...check out a handy dandy guide about Applegate's Hot Dogs vrs the Usual Suspects:
I don't know about you, but I'd prefer if the hot dog that my family consumes doesn't contain the same ingredient found in fireworks or hand warmers.  Nope.  I'm good.  When I saw this visual, it only solidified my thoughts on the topic.
So naturally, when I got a #Wienervention package from Applegate that was packed full of their delicious organic beef hot dogs, Annies and Ricks Picks organic condiments and Udi's buns, barbecue tools, an apron, a cooler and all sorts of cute paper serving items from Susty. It was celebration worthy!

Oh, and one more thing....if beef isn't your thing, Applegate also offers Chicken, Pork, even Corn Dogs!

Applegate Farms supplied me with free samples of their products for review. I was in no way compensated for this post. All opinions stated here are my own.


  1. I happen to love hotdogs, but after I started down the path of healthier eating...well I try to avoid them. Load them up with carmalized onions and homemade relish - yum. Will have to pick some of these up for the weekend!

  2. Those are the only hot dogs I buy! It's amazing how much garbage is in the other types!

  3. What a great package to get in the mail! Perfect for summer!! I love Applegate products and bought the hot dogs recently to make chili cheese dogs....yummmm :)

  4. HaaaHaaaa, "Wienervention" ;}
    I'm not a big meat eater but I can't officially call it a summer unless I've had one good grilled hot dog, err wiener ;) I love that these don't contain any fillers and especially no nitrates! My neighborhood Safeway is doing a BIG reconstruction with several aisles of Natural/Health and GF foods (I've only been bugging them for years to get on the ball ;) So if they don't carry these I'll get on them to.

  5. I will have to look for these. We do enjoy an occasional hot dog, but it's rare because of all the junk in them... But, really? Same stuff as in fireworks? That I had no idea... Ick!
