July is National Hot Dog Month…
and who better to turn to for hot dog facts than the National Hot Dog & Sausage Council!
Here are a few of their fun facts:
“Los Angeles residents consume more hot dogs than any other city (over 40 million), beating out New York and Atlanta.
Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport consumes SIX times more hot dogs, 725,000 more than Los Angeles International Airport and LaGuardia Airport combined.
On Independence Day, Americans will enjoy 150 million hot dogs, enough to stretch from D.C. to L.A. more than five times.
During peak hot dog season, from Memorial Day to Labor Day, Americans typically consume 7 billion hot dogs. That’s 818 hot dogs consumed every second during that period.
Los Angeles Dodger fans are expected to consume a record 3,077,537 in 2014. Across the major leagues, fans are expected to eat 21.4 million hot dogs in 2014.”
That’s a LOT of hot dogs!
