Applegate Farms Natural Big Apple Hot Dogs
The Big Apple Natural Casing Hot Dogs from Applegate Farms have NEVER failed me. I first found these at Whole Foods about a year ago and have been loving them ever since. These were grilled and put in Joseph's Hot Dog Pitas (provided by my kind mother) with lettuce and Boar's Head Pepperhouse Gourmaise (provided by my excellent sister).
Appearance: Grilled to my usual liking. These wieners kind of shriveled up after being off the grill for a few minutes.
Smell: I don't know exactly what I'm smelling but it's GOOD. Definitely a little bit of spice going on.
Taste: I really hit the jackpot this time. These wieners have a perfect hot dog taste which went really well with the Pepperhouse Gourmaise. Lettuce: WHY NOT?
Texture: You wouldn't be able to say that these dogs are all bark and no bite. They have a nice and firm snap with smooth meat that is just moist enough. Lettuce was a great addition to the mix. I will say the pita was a little weak in construction but I dare you to show me a sturdy pita.
Overall: This was almost too good to be true. Wiener bliss. I'll be sure to have this combo or variations of.
Applegate Farms Big Apple Hot Dogs get a 5/5!
