  • Adorable! I love piccalilli and mustard on my hot dogs, and I prefer ’em grilled and a little bit burned, in a toasted bun. Yum!

  • That’s the way to do it! Some of my fondest memories as a kid involve roasting hot dogs over a fire pit. I loved catching them on fire for a split second to get that perfect char-grilled taste! Hot diggity dog! What an awesome project.

  • Ketchup, mustard, and relish for me! Slightly burnt hot dog from the grill if I have the choice. Hot dog stands were a selling factor in moving to NYC…

  • Yum. Reminds me of the best hot-dog I ever had…I was about 11 years old, living outside of Toronto, ON at the time. That summer, I’d been attending a computer programming day camp. We were a very pasty, nerdy crew, but we were all into it. My father came around the camp at lunchtime and told me we were going to take a surprise trip up to the city, about a half hour’s drive. So we jumped in his car, drove up to Toronto, and found parking near the CN Tower. I had no idea where we were going, and I had only been into the city a handful of times before. Everything was so big!

    We walked around downtown Toronto, finally arriving at the Skydome. I’d figured out at this point that we were probably going to see the Blue Jays play, so I was beyond excited. It was the bottom of the first inning, and my Dad told me we were going to scalp some good tickets for cheap, explaining once the game has started, the scalpers have to basically take whatever they can get for the tickets, or risk losing the money they’d invested in them. We got some amazing seats, down near the Oakland A’s dugout, where we could get a great view of Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire…this was the first MLB game I’d ever attended, and I was in heaven. When the hot dog guy came up near our section of the stands, we got a couple of loaded dogs…tons of mustard, sauerkraut, onions…the works. And I sat there watching the game with my Dad, hot dog toppings all over my face and clothes, taking it all in, just about as happy as a kid can be. That was, to this day, the best tasting hot dog I’ve ever had in my life.

  • This is Hot Diggity Doggin’ Grrrreat! A hot dog is pure joy while strolling through Central Park on a beautiful day (like today!) I love it with ketchup and mustard, respectively. No thrills. No frills. Just great in its most natural form.

  • I Love kraut, cayenne, slaw, mustard (of course), onions, ketchup, umm…I think that’s it but I might think of more!

  • my favorite hot dog toppings all together are, french’s mustard, on top of chili dogs with kraut! this looks like an AWESOME prize package and i hope to win!

  • Dear Witt,

    That was the best hotdog story I’ve ever heard. In fact this is the best comment that has ever been published ever. This is exactly what the French’s family is all about. You are #NaturallyAmazing!

    Have a great weekend and buy a bottle of French’s 100% natural mustard to create new memories!
