A few weeks ago, I got the above package in the mail. I knew I was expecting some hot dogs from Applegate but I busted out laughing when I opened it. Seriously one of the best packages I’ve ever received. And I get to offer an Applegate giveaway to one of you!

Applegate is staging a Wienervention because it’s time we grill up some worry-free hot dogs! Applegate hot dogs are simple: just beef, water, sea salt, and spices. This means that they typically have less fat and sodium than other dogs. They’re also made from animals that are never given antibiotics or hormones.

That’s all important and all, but what about the taste? When I posted that photo of the package on Instagram and Twitter, I had at least 5 people say “Omg, their all beef hot dogs are the best things ever!” I was a little skeptical though because a hot dog’s a hot dog, right? Nope, wrong. They are amazing! I can’t tell you how many times I just had a couple hot dogs – not even with buns – for lunch over the past couple weeks. This past weekend I drove across town to the only place I knew had them (Super Target) because I absolutely had to have more. They are so flavorful – normally I pile my hot dogs with all kinds of stuff but these are perfect with just a tiny bit of ketchup and my new favorite spicy maple mustard (that my mom sent me for my birthday!).

The giveaway will be a package that includes an Applegate wooden cutting board, an Applegate Chico tote bag, and fun Applegate buttons and magnets. Make sure you enter below!
