Americans’ Preferred Hot Dog Toppings Vary By Region
It's National Hot Dog Day today and what's more American than hot dogs? It turns out that Americans trend dress up their hot dogs with a variety of toppings based on the region where they live. According to a Harris poll conducted on behalf of the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council (NHDSC), mustard is the all-american favorite topping but those that live in the South tend to enjoy chili, cheese, and coleslaw on their hot dogs. Meanwhile, North-easterners like sauerkraut, Westerners like a kick with jalapenos, while Mid-westerners tend to be conservative with just ketchup.
Personally, I like to mix it up toppings. I like almost anything except sauerkraut and my feeling is that the more toppings on a hot dog the better!
