Oscar Mayer Made Hot Dog-Flavored Ice Cream

A hot dog-infused sweet cream with real pieces of candied Weiner served beside spicy dijon gelato and wedged within two pieces of cookie “bun” sounds like a gastronomer’s most worst nightmare.

Just typing those words in the same sentence makes me feel uncomfortable.

Eaters are more courageous than I can keep an eye out for a specially outfitted Wienermobile, giving out free ice dog sandwich samples all over New York City the week of Aug. 12.

(A Twitter poll proposes more than 75 percent of voters favor to eat condiments solo. But an Oscar Mayer PR rep told CNET the ice dog is “actually delicious.”)

“You may have heard that a certain condiment brand released an ice cream,” the Kraft Heinz subsidiary wrote in a statement. “But, who eats just mustard? Condiments were made for an Oscar Mayer hot dog.”

The food fight started Wednesday when French’s announced the collaboration with Coolhaus to release mustard ice cream to celebrate the National Mustard Day on Saturday.

“After 115 years of using mustard to add something bold and unique to the standard fare, we thought, ‘What about ice cream?’,” the McCormick-owned condiment company said.

The limited-time flavor is possible in Coolhaus’s home of Culver City, Calif., from Aug. 2 to 4 and 9 to 11. New Yorkers can look for the French’s Mustard Ice Cream truck in the city on Friday and the Hamptons on Saturday.
