Why don't they start giving away the weiner whistle again inside the packages? I still have one from years ago.
Me too. I bought mine at the Ford Museum in Michigan. You can still get the weiner whistles there.

The newspaper doesn't censor a thing. Topix is its own entity.
Try L-O-L or L*O*L...or dare to dream, R*O*T*F*L*M*A*O.
A Vienna All Beef is still the way to go, but those OM beef jumbos are better that the BP version. Boil 'em, grill 'em...it's almost summer and free ones are even better.

I have a hard time believing that anyone would choose a OM over a Hebrew National.

Any one who likes hot dogs knows that Kosher hot dogs are the best in the world not the ones with all the fillers.

Sara Lee made a very stupid decision when they discontinued the Best's Kosher/Sinai brand of hot dogs and meats. Dumb, dumb, dumb. You'd think they were taking branding advice from the Einsteins at Macy's!

Sorry Sara Lee, you've lost my business when you dumped Best's. Take your mystery meat Ball Park kiddie franks and cram 'em.

Vienna Beef products, and Hebrew National, Romanian, and even NY's Nathan's are better.

Hebrew national and Nathans are good.

Also we have Sabrett and Thumann's in the norhteast. Great hot dogs.

Brats are also very good

When did Best's Kosher stop production? I believe that they are still around as they are my favorite dog. Though I haven't had a hot dog for about a year now.

Oscar Mayer has been putting a lot of suet in their franks for years. I'll take (& have been) Sara Lee's Ball Park franks.for years.
This kind of marketing from OM tells me they're not doing so good && that's why the offensive behavor. I'll pay for a Sara Lee before I'd take an OM freebie.
