“These hot dogs are great for quick dinners, on the BBQ or for camping...and are always well received! Because they are cooked in foil, they have a handy wrapper to hold them without getting your hands messy. Very good! (I cut the calories in half by choosing turkey or non-fat hot dogs and light or non-fat mayo and cheese slices).”
