Summer is a great time to grill some hot dogs, but have you ever wished for a cold dog on a blazing summer day? If so, Oscar Mayer has the thing for you.

According to Oscar Mayer’s, they are introducing an ice cream sandwich with spicy Dijon gelato, candied hot dog bits, hot dog sweet cream and a cookie bun.

What goes into an Ice Dog? Don’t blame us if you aren’t happy with the answer to this question.

1. Candied hot dog bits!

2. Hot dog sweet cream

3. Spicy dijon gelato

4. A cookie “bun”

Prefer ketchup on your hot dog? Some would find it impossible to accept your life choice. Not exactly a fan of candied hot dog bits and mustard ice cream? You’d face little debate.

What’s next? Bologna Italian ice? Cheeseburger soft serve? Barbecue chicken frozen yogurt? We shouldn’t have said that out loud.

Twitter responses to Oscar Mayer’s hot dog-ice cream synergy attempt showed the very premise sent stomachs a-churning.








Good on their own, sure. But together? Highly unnatural. Save that kind of mixing and mingling for the digestive system.

Samples of the sandwich were handed out in Manhattan on August 12.

Oscar Mayer originally told people not in the Manhattan area to direct message them on Twitter to find out how to get their hand on the sweet and salty treat, but eventually shut that down after being inundated.





 If you want to get a box of the sandwiches, they are offering a contest. You can enter by tweeting #OscarMayerIceCream and #Giveaway
