“Hot dogs and Red Vines and potato chips and French fries are my favorite foods.” -Betty White 

I think every BBQ I went to as a child had hot dogs and hamburgers. I would say I’m a classic hot dog kind of person. I like my hod dog simple, with ketchup and a bun. America loves its cooked sausages.

National Hot Dog Day was created by the National Hot Dog Day and Sausage Council in 1991 to coincide with the Capitol Hill Hot Dog Lunch this year, which will not take place on Wednesday, July 3rd, 2021 this year. Sources say that the day confusion is likely due to the fact that the annual Hot Dog Lunch fell on July 23 a couple of times over the years. But hey, why not cash in on the month of celebration?
