Did You Know There Is A Correct And An Incorrect Way To Eat A Hot Dog?

Okay. I confess that I didn’t know that there was a right way and a wrong way to eat a hot dog! However, according to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, there is! So with that being said, let’s go over the proper rules for hot dog consumption:

Right way:

•Only sesame seed, poppy seed, and plain buns should be served;

•Only use your hands to eat hot dogs. No utensils;

•Paper plates and everyday dishes are used. No fine china;

•Condiments on fingers should be licked off, not washed off.

Wrong way:

•Dress the hot dog with condiments on the dog, not on the bun;

•Condiments should be used in the following order: mustard first, then relish and onions followed by salt and pepper. Ketchup should be reserved for those over the age of 18;

•Paper napkins are preferable to cloth napkins;

•Five bites should finish off a dog. Seven bites for a foot long one;

•Eat all the bun. No pieces should be left on the paper plate;

•Always send a thank you note after a hot dog barbecue. It keeps with the unpretentious nature of hot dogs;

•Never bring or drink wine. Only beer, soda, lemonade, and tea are acceptable;

•There is never a bad time to eat a hot dog!

There you have it. Now go enjoy a hot dog!
