On the Fourth of July, an estimated 150 million hot dogs are grilled, squirted with ketchup, piled with relish, and devoured. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all feel better about those dogs?
This year, I’m working with Applegate as an advisor because I respect their mission to change the meat that people eat. All of their meat comes from animals that were humanely raised and never given antibiotics or hormones.
So in honor of all the cookouts this weekend, I’m hosting a big Applegate giveaway featuring two packages of their hot dogs plus everything you need (from grill tongs to fun paper straws) to hold your own “Wienervention“, swapping your conventional hot dogs for better ones.
Check out all the goodies in the giveaway!
Why the need for a Wienervention? See for yourself:
Ingredients in an Oscar Meyer Classic beef hot dog: Beef, Water, Corn Syrup, Contains less than 2% of salt, potassium lactate, dextrose, sodium phosphates, sodium dictate, flavor, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), extractives of paprika, sodium nitrate.
Applegate Natural beef hot dogs contain just beef, water, salt, and spices.
Applegate hot dogs also have about half the fat of regular hot dogs and 40 percent less sodium.
How do they taste? We hosted our own Wienervention with some friends on our back patio, and the kids (and grown ups) happily gobbled up the Applegate dogs.
Applegate will send a Wienervention kit to FOUR Real Mom Nutrition readers. Each kit includes:
- 2 packs of Applegate hot dogs
- 3 packs Rudi’s buns (regular and gluten free)
- Annie’s brand ketchup & mustard
- Rick’s Pick’s relish
- Wienervention apron
- Grilling tool set (spatula, tongs, and brush)
- Cleaner Wiener Frisbee
- Applegate mini cooler
- Adorable paper straws & napkins

Disclosure: I’m happy to be working with Applegate this year as a member of their Advisory Board, because it’s a brand I buy and respect. I received a complimentary Wienervention Kit and am compensated for this post. All opinions expressed are my own.
