More Is Less For $69 Hot Dog

The $69 Serendipity Foot Long Haute Dog at Serendipity 3.

I have no problem if somebody wants to shell out $69 for a hot dog. (Even in New York, where hot dogs are plentiful.) Serendipity 3, the New York eatery, lets diners do just that. What I do take issue with however, is that the thing is clearly served with ketchup. Now that I just can’t take seriously.

Heinz Offers A New Way To Squeeze The Ketchup

Innovative dual-function ketchup packet from Heinz.

Last year, Heinz introduced new ketchup packaging that can be used in two very important ways. Heinz Dip & Squeeze Ketchup can be opened up to dip french fries in, or it can be used traditionally like a squeeze packet. While the convenience is nice, what is important to note here is that, not only is it rolling out nationwide, but it also holds three times the ketchup. No more tearing open multiple packets while your burger and fries get cold!

Press release after the jump (including an offer for free fries).

Spiral Cut Hot Dogs Increase Condiment Coverage

Wynder's Spiral Cut Hot Dogs

There are no ends to the possibilities when it comes to dressing up a hot dog. From sauerkraut and relish, to jalapeños and hot sauce, the ability to add a personal touch to the tube is one aspect that makes hot dogs so eternally popular. Add in the fact that the hot dog itself is available in a million different varieties, and practically every meat-eater out there is guaranteed a dog to their liking. Now, it is possible to add one variation to each and every option out there, thanks to Wynder’s Spiral Hot Dog Cutters.

Bake your own hot dog buns

Americoat Nonstick 15
Whether you call them frankfurters or wieners, hot dogs offer something for everyone. Available in a multitude of varieties, meat in tube form continues to be a classic meal no matter where you may be from. Yet for all the different forms (and varying degrees of quality) sausages can take, the bun sadly is too often overlooked. The lowly bun is capable of so much more than being relegated to oddly-numbered packages smushed into the back of a grocer’s counter—especially when you bake your own.

The Americoat Nonstick 15″ x 6″ Hot Dog Bun Pan encourages hot dog buns to rise to their full potential. The raised ridges form indentations into the buns as they bake, in the process creating quick-access cutting guides. As all hot dog fans know, the quicker to the dog, the better. Pile the resulting dog high with condiments (no ketchup), and the perfect hot dog is finally completed in all its glory, from its chili-coated top to hearty bread bottom.
