Fun Hot Dog Facts
There are plenty of random hot dog facts to help you get through National Hot Dog Month. One of our favorites? Hot dogs were a favorite food to some astronauts. Mental Floss writes, “Believe it or not, astronauts on the Apollo 7 mission in 1968 didn’t really like the freeze-dried ice cream they were to be served in space. The food was removed from the space program, and it eventually found a home in museum gift shops. However, one classic meal item that later crew members—including those on the Apollo 11 mission—actually enjoyed was hot dogs.”
In keeping with the holiday, hold a hot dog cook-off with some of your friends rewarding silly prizes for different categories such as most creative, spiciest, and overall best flavor. Or, hold a hot dog eating contest in our apartment community. Celebrate the depth of your love for hot dogs with all sorts of hot dog themed decor. No matter how you choose to celebrate, we won’t judge.
