Would the Hudson Valley Eat an Oscar Mayer Frozen Wiener Pop?
Yuck. Most people will enjoy a hot dog or two during a summer barbecue or baseball game. It's an American tradition. But we live in a world where famous food brands like to experiment by mixing products that don't go together. While popsicles are also a favorite of many during the warmer months, you probably wouldn't want to mix them with hot dogs.
Well, Oscar Mayer went and did it now.
Get ready to put one these nasty things in your mouths, Hudson Valley.
Hot Dog Flavored Popsicles
CNN is reporting that Oscar Mayer has unveiled the Cold Dog, which is basically a frozen popsicle that tastes like one of their hot dogs. There's even icing that tastes like yellow mustard on it. This new form of wiener comes with a flavor that is described as "both refreshing and smokey, (with) umami notes". This awful idea came from social media of course, as Oscar Mayer shared their plans for frozen stiff wieners on Instagram to a surprisingly receptive audience.
After the overwhelming fan excitement for our beloved Cold Dog, it was a no-brainer to make this hot dog-inspired frozen pop a reality.
The Cold Pops are available at select Pop Bar locations n New York City. Pop Bar collaborated with Oscar Mayer on the brand new snack.
