Do You Put the Condiments in the Bun Before the Hot Dog?

It’s that time of the year . . . again . . . when everyone debates whether or not hot dogs qualify as a sandwich.

There’s a new survey out where 53% of people say a hot dog IS a sandwich.

But here’s something else:  75% of people . . . or three out of four . . . have put the condiments in the bun BEFORE the hot dog.  (???)

Technically, it was more of a “have you done it,” than a question of a preferred method . . . but it’s still surprising.

For the record, the official hot dog etiquette guide says you should never place condiments between the bun and the hot dog . . . always put the dog in first.


We’re right between Memorial Day and Labor Day, which means its peak HOT-DOG SEASON.

In fact, National Hot Dog Day is TODAY . . . so someone looked into which states love hot dogs the most, using data from the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council and Google.

West Virginia is #1 . . . followed by North Carolina, South Carolina, Illinois, Maine, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Nevada.

Among individual cities, Buffalo is #1 . . . followed by Raleigh / Durham, North Carolina and Charlotte, North Carolina.

In all, Americans will consume 7 BILLION hot dogs between Memorial Day and Labor Day . . . and MUSTARD is the most popular topping.
