I was driving on US-131 this morning and saw the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile! The 27 foot long, 11 foot high hot dog on wheels will be visiting select Meijer stores over the next couple of days.
Oscar Mayer is making big changes to their hot dogs. They removed the added nitrates and nitrites (except those naturally occurring in celery juice), said goodbye to by-products, and got rid of all the artificial preservatives in their meat. They are now out spreading the news. The Weinermobile and the “Hotdoggers” (the drivers of the Weinermobile) have set out on a mission across the country. They’re taking the new ‘dogs with them!
The picture above is Michelle McKormick and I with the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile in 2009.
