That Weiner's a Winner!


Just in time for National Hot Dog Month (July), AOL Food has ranked Hebrew National Reduced Fat Beef Franks as the ‘Weiner Winner’ in a taste test among 20 competitors. In 2007, Consumer Reports magazine also rated Hebrew National hot dogs the best when it came to wurst, although not the slimmed down dog.

Top Taste, Less Guilt

Despite being a lower-fat version of Hebrew National’s regular frank, these dogs came in number one with AOL Food panelists, who rated them above such contenders as Nathan’s Famous Kosher Premium Beef Franks, Ballpark Angus Beef Franks, and Oscar Meyer Premium Beef Franks.

Hebrew National’s “Regulars” Top Consumer Reports Rankings

In June, 2007, Consumer Reports magazine had taste testers try 620 hot dogs (Kobayashi could wolf down that many in a couple of minutes). There were 23 different brands tested. Hebrew National Kosher Beef Franks was the overall weiner—er, winner. (The regular dogs, not the reduced-fat variety).

Nathan’s Famous Skinless Beef Franks came in second, and Boar’s Head Skinless Beef Franks placed third. The magazine said those top three hot dogs “stood out from the others” in the 2007 taste testing.

All Hebrew National varieties, including the reduced fat beef frank, are made with 100 percent Kosher beef and have no artificial flavors, colors, fillers or by-products.
