July Is National Hot Dog Month!!!
Celebrate America’s Birthday with Hot Dogs and America’s #1 Mustard
Did you know that hot dogs and mustard were both introduced in 1904 at the St. Louis Worlds Fair? Ever since that time, hot dogs along with Mustard have been an integral part of America’s family summer celebrations – from ballgames and backyard barbeques to picnics and state fairs. In 1915, French’s Mustard made baseball a permanent part of its heritage by incorporating its name into the iconic red pennant we know today.
