Do You Know What’s In Your Hot Dog? Applegate Keeps It Simple And Gives 3 Of Our Readers a Meat Lovin’ Prize Pack

Hot Dog LinksDid you know that July is National Hot Dog Month? Before you decide not to celebrate this holiday though, you might be surprised to find out that some hot dogs aren’t actually that bad for you. Really, I promise!

Despite America’s love of hot dogs, they aren’t always the best food choice for you or your kids. That’s because many are filled with “industrial ingredients”, nitrates, sodium diacetate, and even random animal parts. Sounds delicious, right? Yeah, not so much! But luckily, not all hot dogs are created equal. In fact, you can still enjoy one of summer’s most beloved foods without worrying about all the junk that may or may not be in it.

Say hello to Applegate’s Super Natural Hot Dogs! Unlike conventional hot dogs, these dogs only contains simple ingredients you can actually recognize: beef, water, sea salt, and some spices. Plus, these dogs come from animals that were never administered antibiotics or hormones. Simple isn’t it? And that’s just what we like to hear when it comes to the food we eat – at least that’s the case in our home. Apparently, 77% of other Americans also feel the same way.

That’s why Applegate is getting the conversation started at http://www.whatsinyourhotdog.com. Now you can learn more about your hot dogs and view a few hilarious videos along the way.

And now that you know that you CAN celebrate National Hot Dog Month without any yuck-factor, why not do so in style? The fun people at Applegate are allowing us to give three of our readers awesome “Meat Lovin’” prize pack! Here’s what you’ll win:
