Is This What They Meant By Chilli Dog? Can A Hot Dog Even Be An Ice Cream Sandwich?
There has been enough buzz about a new ice cream flavor that I thought I would, at least, look into this concoction. It is absurd.
Oscar Mayer made a hot dog ice cream sandwich.
That just sounds bad right away, doesn't it?
Anyway, the sandwich is a shortbread-type cookie outer layer, with a "hot dog sweet cream", and pieces of candied hot dogs. One end is dipped in a spicy mustard gelato and made to compete with the new French's Mustard Ice Cream (I am suspicious of this product too).
I can't decide if this is supposed to be a sweet dessert or a savory one, or perhaps, Oscar Mayer is trying to apply the Chinese principle of "Five Tastes" to this dessert.
Despite my willingness to give everything a try, once, I am really struggling to put a game face on this one.
The Weiner mobile will be passing them out in New York on August 12, I think I am going to wait for the reviews to decide.
