A hot dog on a stick isn't novel, but a frozen treat concocted to look and taste like a wiener definitely ranks as unique. Oscar Mayer's not-so-cleverly-named Cold Dog features "smokey, umami notes" and is served with a "signature swirl of 'mustard,'" which we take to mean it tastes anything but sweet. The Cold Dog may be "polarizing," Oscar Mayer says, but "tens of thousands of fans relished the idea" (groan), so the company made it so, with the help of frozen-dessert maker Popbar, known for its gelato on a stick.
The popsicles cost $2 and are available at Popbar stores in New Orleans, New York City, Long Beach, California, and Alpharetta, Georgia, while supplies last. If you're tempted to give the Cold Dog a try, let us know your thoughts in the comments.
