Wednesday, July 23rd is officially Hot Dog Day in Canada! Yes, apparently every dog has its day.
When I was a wee one, “Hot Dog Day” meant a school lunch consisting of a boiled hot dog, a small bag of chips and overly sweet lemonade. Oh, how I adored Hot Dog Day! It allowed me the chance to have lunch at school with my friends, and savour three delicious foods at the same time. I can distinctly remember eating my hot dog s-l-o-w-l-y to relish every bite; popping the end in my mouth with a self-satisfied grin. At the time, ketchup was my topping of choice – but I’ve since evolved to include more inspired toppings such as smoked cheddar, salsa and even coleslaw.
(Extremely frustrating? I live with three boys who prefer NO condiments on their hot dogs. None! Zilch! Nada! Isn’t that like food blasphemy? Or are Maple Leaf Hot Dogs so good that no adornments are needed? Regardless, I’m still on team #ketchupmustardrelish.)
Now who doesn’t enjoy a good hot dog? Whether at a birthday party, ball park or in your own backyard, they’re one of the best handheld foods that the whole family loves. And today, the choices are endless! Maple Leaf Natural Selections, Angus Beef, Less Salt and more – there’s a hot dog to suit every taste and lifestyle. Pair them up with fresh Dempsters Hot Dog Buns, and you’re in flavourtown!
Of course, the best way to celebrate #HotDogDay is with a Twitter Party! Join @MapleLeafFoods as we pay tribute to the mighty hot dog. We’re starting the celebration one day early with a #HotDogDay Twitter Party on Tuesday, July 22nd from 8-9pm ET. There’ll be lots of yummy conversation and amazing prizes as always!
