Well, folks. It’s official. DREAMS. COME. TRUE.
If you know me, you know I’m obsessed with two things: hot dogs and frozen treats. I’m very likely the biggest hot dog fan this world has ever seen. I’m obsessed. I keep the Wienerschnitzel near my house in good business. And I can never say no to a sweet, frozen treat. It’s against everything I am, and it’s against everything I stand for.
Finally, a product has been released that I can’t help but believe was intentionally designed for yours truly. Oscar Mayer has officially launched the “Cold Dog,” a hot dog-flavored popsicle. It’s literally a frozen wiener popsicle on a stick, complete with mustard drizzle. At first, I thought this had to be a joke. I thought it was too good to be true. But, in fact, the two ultimate summer foods have come together to create, in my opinion, the coolest product ever.
According to People, the creation is a result of Oscar Mayer’s “Stupid or Genius” Instagram campaign, which set out to find all the “wonderfully odd” ways to enjoy the iconic wiener aside from just grilling. Thousands of fans voted that the hot dog popsicle was “genius.” With such positive feedback funneling in, Oscar Mayer teamed up with Popbar to bring the idea to frozen fruition. To those who dubbed this idea “genius,” I thank you from the bottom of my heart. The world has gone too long with out this powerhouse combo.
I do have some sad news… Unfortunately, the “cold dog” is only available at select Popbar locations in Long Beach, New York City, Atlanta and New Orleans. I need Oscar Mayer to bring the notorious Wienermobile to Las Vegas with a freezer full of these suckers. I can only hope they’ll be a massive hit and they expand to stores over on the west coast.
Perhaps I’ll just have to take a trip to one of the stocked Popbar locations. Because I can’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind treat. It’d be a crime.
