A brief note about “The Hot Dog:”

Our “Hot Dogs” (used in the eating contest and included with each ticket) are custom engineered by highly paid science gurus to ensure that no person can tell the actual ingredients used in the food…. JUST KIDDING!!

Actually, all we did is get a local engineer to design a device that takes large CARROTS and cuts them to 5″ in length, and 0.8″ in diameter, the same specifications as a conventional hot dog. We then round the edges to complete the shape. After that, they are then boiled in hot water with a small amount of Liquid Aminos, which softens the carrots, changes the color, and adds that well known salty taste. Conveniently enough, they look quite similar to actual hot dogs! Add your condiments of choice and throw it on a bun, and you won’t believe you are eating a carrot! Seriously!

It’s got the look, feel, color, smell and taste of a hot dog, except with none of the cholesterol, fat, cruelty, or other nonsense!

The “hot dogs” in the picture below were part of an early trial run, and include organic buns, Just Mayo, Ketchup, Mustard, Relish, and diced tomato (all non-gmo and vegan, of course).

If you are interested in being part of the next trial run (volunteering to help make them), joining the eating contest, or want to know more, feel free to let us know by contacting us directly! info@foodinroot.com
