With hubby still on afternoons we headed back over to my parents’ place for some more BBQ fun. This time our goal was to try out Maple Leaf Top Dogs hot dogs. We picked up two packages, the 100% Angus Beef Wieners, and the Less Salt Wieners.

Now, to be honest, I do not really like hot dogs. I remember eating them as a kid, but pretty much go out of my way to avoid them now that I get to pick my own foods. That said, I was determined to give these a fair try… and am I ever glad I did!
First I ate one of the Less Salt Wieners. I was pretty neutral on these. They taste like hot dogs. Meh. However, the kids loved them. My dad, who is on a low-sodium diet, became rather excited about these, “I had no idea I could still eat hot dogs! I thought they were off limits. These are great!”
I was surprised to note that the 100% Angus Beef Wieners included “modified milk ingredients”, which made them off-limits for my dairy-free littlest one. The 100% Angus hot dogs were also shorter than the regular dogs. Which didn’t bother me, but I could see this annoying my the-hotdog-must-perfectly-fit-the-bun husband.

This is what you want to look for at the grocery store.
After just one bite of the 100% Angus Beef Wieners I was in love. My mom and I both agreed that these were the best hot dogs we had ever had. They were FANTASTIC. Like drop-what-you’re-doing-and-go-out-and-buy-a -pack-right-now-you-have-got-to-try-these-they-are-so-yummy fantastic. I have already picked up a second package and can’t wait to have them again.
|What do you put on your Top Dogs?|
I coated mine in guacamole and chopped onions. YUM.
Overall, Maple Leaf Top Dogs live up to their name. They are definitely tops in the hot dog department.
