Pineland Farms Uncured Beef Hot Dogs
I bought these natural Hot Dogs at Whole Foods about a week ago, ate three, put them in the fridge, and revisited them tonight. I swear they were still fine and match up to my memories of my previous eating experience. I cooked these in a frying pan since it was raining. I put these wieners in rolls with a little bit of black pepper for fun and Gulden's Spicy Brown Mustard. Now for the review part.
Appearance: These are natural casing style Hot Dogs. Dark red in color with some nice browning from cooking. The dark pink meat inside is chunky but homogeneous, with most moisture residing in between chunks.
Smell: They smell like hot dogs. I don't have the most refined olfactory system. I couldn't get anyone to sniff my wiener for me.
Taste: Nothing too wild. Tastes like beef. Not totally bland but nothing distinct to take notice of.
Texture: Biting into these hot dogs is like a rubber band snap. A little on the chewy side but not gross.
Overall: These dogs were pretty good. Nothing special, but better than numerous alternatives. I wouldn't necessarily buy these again unless I had a hankering for a natural wiener and Applegate Farms were out of stock.
I give Pineland Farms Uncured Beef Hot Dogs a 3/5 rating!
