JJ’s Red Hots released it’s third annual study on the most popular hot dog toppings just in time for the 4th of July holiday. American’s eat more hot dogs on July 4th than any other day of the year, consuming over 150 million. That’s enough to stretch from LA to DC over 5 times!
Here is JJ’sÂ ranking of last years favorite toppings:
- Cole Slaw
Mustard, onions and chili remain at the top of the list for three years in a row, with Queso making the list for the first time.
JJ’s Founder was not to pleased to see ketchup make the list, which surprisinglyÂ fell at number 9.â€śWhile I have to live with ketchup for a year, most of this yearâ€™s list made sense from a historical point of view,â€ť said Luther. â€śThe surprises from last year â€“ such as pimento cheese, salsa and caramelized onions — disappeared and most of the mainstream toppings settled back into place. Fortunately, we have featured more than 300 toppings since we opened so we have everything to attract old school connoisseurs and more than enough to please even the most demanding palate.â€ť
To celebrate the 4th, their menu with feature an All-American Hot Dog, with Mustard, Relish and Onions, for $2 available at both the Dilworth and Ballantyne location. â€śWe treat every day like July 4thÂ atÂ JJâ€™s,â€ť said Brandy Newton,Â JJâ€™s director of marketing and brand development, â€śWe couldnâ€™t be more psyched about the future of Hot Dogs, especially ours.â€ť
