Hot Dogs Are Not Sandwiches, Ladies and Gentlemen

Our previous blog post was about Oscar Mayer stating that yes, a hot dog is a sandwich. The statement generated lots of opinions. Before that, we talked about The Takeout, a website which also made its mission to ask a bunch of famous people and public figures whether they believed that a hot dog is indeed a sandwich.

After five months, some results have emerged.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, more than fifty percent of respondents were adamant that no, a hot dog is not, in fact, a sandwich. Based on that number, you may be wondering what justification was given as to why a hot dog is or is not and sure enough, the reason largely boils down to the bread. Specifically, it’s all about the seam. In order to be a sandwich, the bread should be open all sides, which means the fact that a bun is connected on one end prevents it from being a sandwich.

Does the sandwich versus hot dog debate ultimately rest on the bread’s structural integrity? We’ll let you be the judge. If you just want a really, really good hot dog without all of the sandwich debate, then come pay us a visit in Coney Island. Once you’ve had a taste, we don’t think you’ll care whether or not a hot dog is a sandwich.

This update is by Feltman’s of Coney Island Hot Dogs, a symbol of American tradition and quality for decades and the proud maker of the first hot dog originally founded by its namesake Charles Feltman, the inventor of the hot dog. Feltman’s hot dogs are free of nitrates and artificial ingredients, using all natural beef to create an experience that explodes with incredible, original flavor.
