I do love those Hoffman hots too! Especially the white ones.

Ditto. A friend from Syracuse brings Hoffmans down to NC every once and a while and invites us over for a big cookout. Some of the true southerners down here have never even seen a white hot let alone Hoffmans, but they seem to like it.

I have an aunt from Vienna, Austria, who said the Hoffman Snappy Griller (white hot) tastes VERY authentic to the version across the pond.

I have to admit I'm faithful to Zweigles but I like Nathan's better.

Oh man,... people making me homesick and hungry for white hots. Taking a trip down memory lane.
Miss those hots and stopping at Abbott's Custard, and Fall season for the fried donuts. [Though I try to stay away from the 'fried' foods]. I'm glad there's a Wegman's down this way[1 hr +/-], at least.

I'll bet you remember Ar-Pe-Ko/Tobin's (never cared for Conti's) hots, Carroll's hamburgers (if not, then Red Barn, certainly), or maybe the hot dog stand on the way to Conesus next to the Callahan's Restaurant on the corner of South Lima Road and NY 15 (what was their name...Callahan, same as restaurant).

One other question...why do people here think that sauerkraut on a hot dog is strange? In NYC and long island the most common topping for a hot dog is with mustard and kraut. Especially at a Nathan's restaurant or Sabrett truck/cart.

Depends upon your heritage I suppose, being mostly German, we eat kraut on or in everything. Ever have it in mashed potatoes?

Hot dogs are gross, cheaper types of hot dogs are known to contain snouts, ears, and blended organs. Machines strip as much "real meat" from the bones, the bones (along with skin, feet and heads) and put it into a giant centrifuge - that spins at an extremely high speed. Very powerful water jets are directed into the drum and the contents basically break down into a "slightly gritty pink slurry". I'll stick to hamburgers, thank you.
