Fruit-Flavored Hot Dogs Are Now a Real Thing

When was the last time you ate a hot dog? Did you think, while chomping down on said meat product, that it could use a little bit of lemon or strawberry? Of course you didn't! That'd be crazy. However, that's just what one manufacturer has begun adding to their dogs in Japan.

These fruit-flavored hot dogs are not gummies or candy or anything of the sort. They are actual processed pork links mixed with strawberry, lemon and other flavors. Reporters who have braved these dogs have said they have a "slightly milky" taste in addition to an overpowering sweetness. Yikes.

If you find yourself in the Saitama City region of Japan, you can pick up a pack of these precious pork links for only $1.77. Of course, you'll also have to pay for your own dry cleaning if you can't keep them down. There's always that.
