It’s National Hot Dog Month – Celebrate With a Smart Dog!

The Hot Dog – one of America’s first convenience foods. Whether you’re walking down the streets of New York City, sitting in the stands of a baseball game, or at a summer backyard BBQ; the hot dog remains to be one of America’s favorite foods. With so many different ways to eat a hot dog, it’s no wonder we aren’t tired of them yet.

But what if you could get a Smart Dog at a hot dog stand, or at your favorite team’s ballpark? Now that would be pretty perfect, wouldn’t it? Places where you can get a veggie dog are growing in numbers these days, but I would love to see them grow even faster! Smart Dogs are vegan, have only 45 calories, and are cholesterol free. I haven’t had a hot dog in quite a few years, but I’d say they come pretty close to the real thing too!

Like I mentioned, July is National Hot Dog month and I’m celebrating by eating my share of Smart Dogs. Every Thursday I’m going to prepare my Smart Dog a different way, making my way through NYC style, Chicago style, Chili cheese dog, and more. Last night I got a head start with my all time favorite – Smart Dog on a bun with mustard – an old classic for sure.     


Are you celebrating with a Smart Dog? What is your favorite way to prepare them? Are you a tons of toppings kinda person – or is a traditional dog more your speed? Post a picture of your favorite Smart Dog to our Facebook page and I’ll send you a free coupon!

  1. Ooh thanks for the inspiration. I don’t eat hot dogs because, frankly, they seem gross to me but I love the taste of corn dogs and pretzel dogs so maybe I’ll try to make those with Smart Dogs! Not gross and animal free — win and win!
