Heinz Repackaged Its Ketchup As 'Chicago Dog Sauce' To Goad Us All

Today is 'National Hot Dog Day, ' which makes today a good day to revisit the primer on the proper preparation and consumption of a hot dog, the All-American grill favorite.

Heinz - Since Chicagoans don't eat ketchup on hot dogs, the company created a "Chicago Dog Sauce, " which is really just ketchup with a different label.

There are others that people put on a dog, like coleslaw and barbecue sauce, but I don't use them enough to merit inclusion.

Chicago Dog Sauce, says Heinz, is made with "delicious red ripe tomatoes and a special blend of spices and flavorings".

The local taste testers reacted with disgust, as expected. Get your hot dog today!

According to data from the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, in 2016 almost 1 billion pounds of hot dogs were sold at retail stores. Hot dogs are the goddamn best in a way that sound reasoning doesn't even have to justify. In fact, asking for a hot dog with ketchup at some Windy City establishments will get you an order of side eye.

Burger King: Participating locations are offering grilled hot dogs for 79 cents until July 31. We warned you this was going to get deep. Apparently, a Paterson, N.J., frankfurter vendor by the name of Thomas Francis Xavier Morris went by the nickname "Hot Dog" Morris. They are also offering $1 unlimited Original Turkey Dogs every Tuesday in July. Hot dogs are America, minus the garbage aspects of the country. It usually falls on the day on which the North American Meat Institute hosts its annual Hot Dog Lunch on Capitol Hill.

It's a food so popular it's been given it's own day.
