Americans are still pretty OLD SCHOOL when it comes to what we put on our hot dogs. In honor of July being National Hot Dog Month, a new survey found that mustard is our favorite topping, followed by ketchup, onions, relish, and chili. Tomatoes came in last place.
Apparently, July is National Hot Dog Month. I hate to sound like a cynic, but that sounds like a made-up holiday. Like "Auto Safety Month" or "Columbus Day."
--We've got the results here from a survey on Americans' favorite hot dog toppings. And our top four are still VERY OLD SCHOOL. Mustard came in first followed by ketchup, onions, and relish.
--Chili was fifth and especially big in the South. That was followed by sauerkraut, which is biggest in the Northeast . . . cheese, which is biggest in the West . . . and pickles, which are biggest in the Midwest.
--Tomatoes came in last place.
--The survey also found only 9% of Americans say they never buy hot dogs.
