A Regional Favorite
White hot dogs are most popular in Rochester, NY and nearby areas such as Western New York. Take a trip across the country, and you might not be able to find your beloved white hots quite so easily.
If you’re wondering why white hot dogs are so popular in Rochester though, just take a look at the history. White hots have been around for over a century, and Zweigle’s was actually one of the first companies to start commercially producing this tasty German concoction back in the day.
People quickly discovered the brilliant taste of our recipe, and the rest is history. You can now find white hots all around town, including at the Red Wing Stadium and other sporting events.
A Genius Blend of Ingredients
One of the reasons Zweigle’s white hots are so popular is due to the quality of the ingredients. While hot dogs can be made out of a variety of different meats, white hot dogs are a unique combination of pork, beef, and veal. All three meats are uncured and unsmoked, which gives the hot dog its white color.
In addition to the combination of delicious meats, Zweigle’s also uses a unique blend of of spices to produce our famous white hot flavor.
Topping it Off
For those who haven’t experienced a white hot dog in the past, it can be tricky to decide which toppings are best suited for this unique product. Anything essentially goes, but the Rochester tradition includes meat hot sauce, mustard, and chopped onion.
