There’s just something so quintessentially summer about grilled hot dogs and BBQ’s with friends. This past weekend, we were able to bring these 2 summer staples together in a cookout supplied by Applegate (you know, that awesome, all natural and organic meat company). As part of their Cleaner Wiener campaign, the folks over at Applegate wanted to ensure we had a quality summer cookout with quality hot dogs free of antibiotics, hormones, nitrates, and fillers: it was a Wienervention.
Imagine my excitement when Applegate farms contacted me to ask: a) If I needed a Wienervention (Answer: Do I ever?!) and b) If I wanted to help them spread the word about their Cleaner Wieners by hosting a Wienervention (Answer: You had me at free hot dogs). A few days later, my Wienervention kit arrived in the mail with everything I would need to host this ever so necessary event.
My (Super Awesome) Kit included:
-2 packs of Applegate uncured hot dogs (TWO!)
-2 packages of Rudi’s hot dog buns (plus an extra package of gluten free buns)
-Annie’s Organic Ketchup and Mustard
-Rick’s Picks Relish
-Susty Straws and Napkins (the straws are compostable!!)
-OVER THE TOP ADORABLE hot dog boats
-Grilling tools, Apron, Insulated Lunch Tote, and a Cleaner Wiener Frisbee
In other words, Applegate gave me the hookup.
Our Wienervention was a huge success. Our neighbors and friends joined us in celebrating the beauty of a perfectly grilled (and all natural) hot dog. There was laughter, coleslaw, watermelon popsicles, an abundance of mustard, and a yard full of happy smiling faces.
Would you like to throw a Wienervention Party of your very own?! Well you can!
The generous folks over at Applegate are giving one lucky Feel Good Foodie fan their very own Wienervention kit!
