It’s Time for a Wienervention – Applegate Hot Dogs to the Rescue!

Although my husband is a big, big hot dog lover in the past I would rarely eat hot dogs. They just seemed so unhealthy and the ingredient list was a definite turn off. Having two toddlers now has forced us into finding a healthier hot dog because as you know toddlers love, love, love hot dogs! We have a very short list of things they will eat and with hot dogs making that list it was definitely time for a wienervention in our home! Healthier hot dogs was the mission and Applegate Hot Dogs came to our rescue!

Applegate Hot Dogs
Applegate recently sent us products to stage our Wienervention! We received an entire kit that included the following:

  • Applegate Naturals Beef Hot Dogs
  • Rudi’s Hot Dog Buns (White and Gluten-Free)
  • Annie’s Organic Ketchup and Mustard
  • Rick’s Pick’s Relish
  • Applegate Apron
  • Grilling tool set
  • Frisbee
  • Mini Applegate Cooler
  • Susty paper straws and napkins

It really was all of the perfect ingredients for our recent Fourth of July cookout (yes, we celebrated early!). The great folks at Applegate shared this survey finding with me that I found to be very interesting:

While 92% of Americans bought hot dogs in the last year, 80% agreed that most hot dogs are low quality and unhealthy. So when it comes to hot dogs, we think it’s time for a “cleaner wiener.”

Applegate Hot DogsI couldn’t agree more: it definitely was time for a cleaner wiener in our household! More than 90% of people who consume hot dogs would rather purchase franks with a short ingredient statement, and that’s where Applegate steps in. Their ingredient list is simple: beef (that has never been administered antibiotics or hormones), water, salt and spices. It’s time to say goodbye to those dirty dogs filled with sodium phosphate, sodium nitrate, and who knows what else! Don’t you think it’s time for a wienervention in our home? Let Applegate Hot Dogs save your summer cookouts!

Serving up Applegate Hot Dogs
I really didn’t like giving hot dogs to our toddlers before our Applegate breakthrough. With Applegate hot dogs though I feel much better about what I’m feeding them! This cookout was the test: it was the first time our kids were going to try Applegate hot dogs and I had my fingers (and toes! HAHA) crossed that they would love them.

Serving up GoodnessOutside of the amazing Applegate Naturals Beef Hot Dogs we received, we also received some other favorite brands: Annie’s Organic ketchup and mustard, Rick’s Pick’s Relish (yum!!), and Rudi’s Buns! The Susty paper straws and napkins were also amazing to have on hand! These were all perfect additions to our family cookout and were enjoyed by all!

Applegate will happily act as a “Meatiator” and provide you with a “Wienervention” kit to ensure you and your friends enjoy cleaner wieners and never look back. The kits have the makings of a full-force backyard barbeque – without the junk! Enter below for your chance to win a Wienervention kit like the one we received! There will be two winners!

Thank you, Applegate for our wienervention! It was needed and much appreciated!
