“For whom is this foodstuff targeted?” you may ask. Unfortunately, Oscar Mayer has yet to offer any definitive answer to this question.
Instead, the brand tweeted out news of its upcoming “Ice Dog” along with a poll, asking followers if they’d be willing to try the sandwich upon its debut. As of Thursday afternoon, the majority would rather not.
Press materials for the “Ice Dog” also include a breakdown of the ingredients that make up the sandwich, which is served between a “cookie bun” stuffed with both “spicy Dijon gelato” and “hot dog sweet cream,” the latter of which contains “candied hot dog bits.”
Oscar Mayer is also deploying a Weinermobile on the streets of New York City throughout the week of Aug. 12, to distribute its “Ice Dogs” to the good, unsuspecting people of Manhattan.
In related news, Stouffer’s has yet to respond with any news of meatloaf-flavored sorbet, although it's likely only a matter of time. This is truly the world we live in, now.
