Back when I first went vegan, about 12 years ago, I decided to have a Veggie Dog Tasting Party. In order to determine the tastiest veggie dog out there, I invited lots of friends and neighbors, bought 7 different kinds of veggie dogs and printed up some little score cards. Everyone got to work tasting and sampling, and then we started to compare the bad news: They were all gross. There pretty much wasn't a single veggie dog I actually wanted to eat. There were 1-2 that I would be willing to eat under duress (glowing review!), but nothing I actually wanted to eat.
Maybe not a very good picture... but a very good hot dog experience!
As a result, I have not bought or eaten a veggie dog for the last 12 years. Well. All that changed when I picked up a package of the new Frankfurters from Field Roast. Friends, these frankfurters are so super yummy!!! Even Mr. Vegan Eats and Treats, who still eats actual hot dogs (I know, I know) totally loved his Frankfurter! Hell yeah! Of course, it's not a total surprise, since everything Field Roast makes is delicious and amazing. Those folks really seem to know what they are doing.
I had mine with loads of yellow mustard and a big pile of sauerkraut. It was 100% excellent: tasty, full of flavor, great texture, delicious and fun. So fun to eat such a nostalgic treat again after so many years!

Each package comes with 6 hot dogs, so you can either have a big hot dog party, or put some in the freezer. The hot dog buns I got also came 6 to a pack, so I guess that's a thing. I'm not gonna start eating hot dogs every day, but I am really glad to know that there is such a delicious vegan hot dog option out there in the world. I have one left and I think I will save it for the 4th of July.
Go get yourself a pack and then you too can scoot around the world on Hot Dog Power!
