Tired of your regular rocky road? Do the triple tastes of Neapolitan no longer excite you? If the cause of your ennui is limited to ice cream flavors, then Oscar Mayer may have the remedy: the Cold Dog. Yes, all the flavor of a barbeque-grilled hot dog in one creamy stick. And they say American food is disgusting!
The American ice cream industry is having a gross-off and we are all losing. Yesterday I wrote about French’s having a moment of ice cream WTFness by inventing a mustard flavored ice cream. Not to be outdone, Oscar Mayer is debuting a hot dog flavored ice cream with actual candied hot dog pieces in them. Candied. Hot dog. Chunks. In. Ice cream. Whatever the executives at Oscar Mayer are smoking, they need to hand over the pipe and stop ruining two beautiful American food staples: ice cream sandwiches and hot dogs. Just let these foods live their separate food lives!
