Pretzel + Hot Dog = Pretzel Dog
September 23rd, 2009 by plumpdumpling

It’s an Auntie Anne’s pretzel wrapped around a Nathan’s hot dog, and I ate it at the airport, which is really the only place you should be able to find a hot dog wrapped in a pretzel. This one only had 310 calories and 20 grams of fat, so I can’t wait to find a place that sells the JUMBO pretzel dog so I can get the full 600-calorie experience.

I will be dipping that one in cheese sauce and wrapping a slice of pizza around each bite, justyouwaitandsee.

    I’d really love to know what percentage of the U.S. population considers the pretzel dog awesome, and what percentage considers eating it too terrifying to imagine.

      Count me in the AWESOME column. Words cannot adequately express how much I love pretzel dogs.

      Here’s a good litmus test: does it contain a hotdog? Yes? Then chances are good to excellent that Kelly loves it.

        The best thing about you is that you’re soooooo feminine in your strapless dresses and your heels, yet I can totally picture you CHOWING on hot dogs.

    Frankly, I’m scared of the pretzel dog. Why? Because I fear that once I try it, I will want to eat nothing else for the rest of my life. Especially if it can be dipped in questionable cheese sauce.

      Plain pretzel dog with questionable cheese for life? Maybe.

      Pretzel dog with cheese, pizza wrapped around it, a layer of peanut butter in between, and chocolate sauce drizzled all over? TOTALLY.

      I really, really want to go to a lot of beer halls right now and eat so much sausage and drink so much hefeweizen with names I can’t pronounce. Since I’m the one with the job, I’m afraid YOU have to come HERE.

    This would only be acceptable for consumption if it were wrapped in bacon and deep fried. Also, must be served with a side of nacho cheese dipping sauce.

      Aside from your comment on this entry, which I think of daily, this is the sexiest thing you’ve ever said.

    Did you have the choice to get it with salt? Because it just doesn’t look quite pretzel-y enough for me.

      Hey, good point! I guess the dog was salty enough for me to not miss the fat crystals on the pretzel itself, but now that you point it out, I feel gypped.
