In honor of National Hot Dog Day, Oscar Mayer turned their legendary Wienermobile into an Airbnb rental. Meanwhile, French's dropped a mustard-flavored ice cream to celebrate another very important food holiday: National Mustard Day.
Now, Oscar Mayer is raising the frankfurter stakes even higher by teaming up with New York City-based ice cream shop Il Laboratorio Del Gelato to create a hot dog-flavored ice cream.
That’s right. Hot dog flavored ice cream.
The wild new flavor will be used as the filling in a savory ice cream sandwich, make that Ice Dog Sandwich, comprised of a candied hot dog swirled with spicy brown mustard-flavored ice cream and sandwiched between two cookie “buns.”
This unholy ice cream creation is making its grand debut August 2 for National Ice Cream Sandwich Day (naturally), and the Wienermobile will also be transforming into an ice cream truck for the week of August 12.
The 27-foot long wiener truck will drive through Manhattan, and the Hotdoggers (drivers of the Wienermobile) will pass out Ice Dog Sandwiches for bold New Yorkers with a serious hankering for hot dog and mustard flavored ice cream.
Who's ready to try it?
