COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — You can list the hot dog as one of the most American foods ever — put it right up there next to apple pie and hamburgers.
There is nothing quite like a food that stirs up memories of magical summer days in the ballpark, family BBQs, or theme parks.
Wednesday, people around the country celebrated National Hot Dog day, thanks to a push by the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council. We’re not complaining about a reason to eat hot dogs!
FOX21’s Krista Witiak went around Colorado Springs to see if people were crowding in to local hot dog places and to find out their favorite toppings. We got some surprises there!
People favored all types of toppings on their dogs, from chili and cheese, to a interesting suggestion of barbecue sauce and mayo, to plain ole’ ketchup and mustard.
Dog Haus in Colorado Springs marked the day by giving away free hot dogs on Wednesday for folks who’d downloaded their app and scanned in a special code.
