Everyone’s favorite hot dog eating holiday is upon us. As you get ready to eat your weight in tubed meat let’s ponder this hot dog mystery shall we?
How many hot dogs will America eat this 4th of July?
According to the National Sausage and Hot Dog Council (NHDSC), (yes, that’s a real organization come to find out) Americans are expected to eat 150 million hot dogs over the next 4 days. This is all part of an estimated 7 billion that are expected to be eaten during the entire 2021 summer season from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
That’s A LOT of dogs. Most of them will be consumed by Joey Chestnut on Sunday in Coney Island. Yum.
