Summer is all about hot dogs and ice cream. Oscar Meyer asks the question, “Why not both?”
Oscar Meyer then answered its own question this week with a ice cream/hot dog combo.
It is called the Ice Dog Sandwich.
What better way to beat the heat than an ice cream sandwich that tastes like a hot dog.
Oscar Meyer announced the summer mix on its Twitter account.
Who eats just mustard @Frenchs? Condiments were made for Oscar Mayer hot dogs. Say hello to the Oscar Mayer Ice Dog Sandwich – 🌭 flavored ice cream, made with our better hot dogs, sandwiched with spicy mustard 🍦. Do you want to try this? Coming in August🔥 #OscarMayerIceCream

Oscar Meyer did not create an ice cream sandwich that tastes like a hot dog. This bologna maker created an ice cream sandwich that contains bits of hot dogs in it.
If a hot dog-flavored ice cream appeals to you, what would you say to a mustard-flavored ice cream?
French’s is offering a mustard ice cream for a limited time in limited areas.
Hey NYC & LA! Try free French's Mustard Ice Cream in honor of #NationalMustardDay. From 8/1-8/3, visit the @Coolhaus location in LA or look for the @Coolhaus ice cream truck crusin' around New York City. You're going to want to try it, trust us. pic.twitter.com/OFW0z9VYIw

New York and LA residents are being favored with the flavor of a summer mustard.
If you can’t make it to either coast in time to try this amalgamation, French’s has you covered.
For only a quarter cup of mustard, some common ingredients, and a bit of gastronomical bravery, you too can recreate the recipe.
One reviewer of this mustard ice cream called it creamy, sweet, and a delicious monstrosity.
Another reluctant taster called it “not that bad.”
We all know what is missing from this picnic of odd combinations: Hamburger ice cream!
Ice cream maker Breyers is ready for you.
Breyers wants you to enjoy this ice cream cake that looks like a hamburger in your own home.
The recipe and instructions for the hamburger ice cream is available here.
Bon appetite! Or not.
