Just when I thought the American culinary scene couldn't get any sillier, along comes Der Wienerschnitzel. --- To help celebrate Wienerschnitzel's 50th anniversary, the weenie chain is introducing, for a limited time, a line of applewood bacon-wrapped hot dogs.
Hot dogs are not exactly health food to begin with, but wrap 'em in bacon and you've got something truly scary. Or, as VP of Marketing for Wienerschnitzel Tom Amberger spins it, "We've kept our bacon-wrapped hot dogs under the radar for some time now, testing and perfecting them to make sure they exceed both our high quality and taste specifications."
High quality and taste specifications? We're talking about bacon-wrapped freakin' HOT DOGS for chrissake.
For anyone interested, Wienerschnitzel's applewood bacon-wrapped hot dogs come in the following flavors (using that term loosely): Original Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dog, Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dog with Chili and the Bacon-Wrapped Street Dog with grilled onions, ketchup, mustard, and mayonnaise. Got Pepto?
