Applegate Farms Organic Uncured Beef Hot Dogs
$5.99 for 12-ounce package
This no-nitrite brand had a light brown color prompting comments like: "not an attractive brown," "ugly," and "best wrinkly looking hot dog I ever had." One invoked another dog-related product: "Smells like Alpo. A little dead, skin a little tough." But this person also noted it had "good real flavor, a little smoky and spicy — less commercial style." Two, who chose this as their least favorite, found the skin "tough" and "rough." Others found the texture to be "dry" and "chewy." "Ham," "veal," and "bland," were used to describe the flavor.
