April 28th—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Gearing up for the start of summer - it's never too early in our opinion - now is the time to take stock of your hot dog options. We've developed quite an assortment, with offerings to please your palate, no matter what kind of dog you most desire. An integral player in our team of top-quality, great-tasting, easy-eating franks are Trader Joe's Uncured Chicken Hot Dogs. These are low fat, full-flavored dogs made with boneless, skinless chicken - 60% breast meat and 40% thigh meat. What they're not made with is mechanically separated meat of any kind, added nitrites or nitrates (there are naturally-occurring nitrates in sea salt and celery powder), MSG, gluten or any fillers. We’ve added spices like garlic, onion, black pepper and paprika, boosting the flavor without adding fat or calories. Each of these winning wieners has a mere 60 calories and 2.5 grams of fat, with less than one gram of saturated fat per pup. That's approximately 80% less fat than in most regular, all-beef hot dogs. The magic here is that they still taste terrific!
So fire up that grill and get these dogs a'heated. They're fully cooked, so in just a few minutes you can be enjoying all the great taste of a haute hot dog without the fat & calories you'd rather avoid. You can also avoid a high price, as we're selling each 16 ounce package of eight dogs for $3.99. You'll find them in our refrigerated case.
