so, b/c it was opening day for baseball here my husbands work was having a lunch to celebrate. they were having hotdogs and my husband meant to get some vegan hotdogs but forgot. so, at the luncheon he just put some sweet gherkin pickles in a hot dog bun and added tomatoes, onions and condiments and was perfectly happy. a co-worker said "wow--ed is eating a hotdog"!!! they all know he is vegan, so why on earth would they think ALL OF A SUDDEN he would be eating a hot dog??? craziness for sure but THEN he had mentioned to his boss that he meant to bring vegan dogs. her face got all screwed up and she said "wow--i cant imagine the junk and processing they must have to go thru to make a soy dog". REALLY??????? now, i know soydogs are highly processed but lets consider whats in a hotdog!!! LMAO--whatever!!!!!

I had someone (jokingly) tell me hot dogs were vegetarian. I agreed, yes they are, but I don't eat cardboard.

Mmmm. I love vegan hotdogs with loads of onions, mustard and ketchup.

Are you sure this is art, not vandalism?

People really are clueless about where their meat and meat products come from. Does she think the hot dogs naturally pop out of a cow's behind the way they are?

What's even weirder is recently I saw the American Heart Association in front of a CVS selling hot dogs to raise funds for heart health awareness? Talk about ironic.

Let's not kid ourselves, people. Vegan hotdogs are f***ing disgusting. Even the nasty preservatives in them can't save the flavor. You can mask the taste by piling on the condiments, but you're better off just making up an excuse not to go to the barbeque.

many veg*ns like the processed hot dogs. your opinion is your own we choose to eat the processed stuff once in a while--any processed garbage is ok now and again. choosing to not go to an outing b/c of social food stuff is absurd to me. to each his/her own

Some vegan hot dogs are better than others. I believe there's another thread on the subject of vegan hot dogs on this board. In it, I recommended Tofurky Italian Sausages over the Smart Dogs and their clones. There are probably others which are good, too.

This. While both are processed, vegan or not, I'd much rather eat processed soybeans instead of leftover parts from pigs/cows, whatever.

I sell hot dogs at my grocery store for a part time job (nasty I know) and a guy actually asked me to hold the bun because he was watching his weight. Um since when are hot dogs healthier than bread?

I care more about enjoying myself with my friends at BBQ's than I do about preservatives.

I was on a trip once and had to endure comments about how "gross" and "not natural" my black bean soup was from people chowing down on animal parts. Omnis are stupid sometimes.

Agreed. People have no idea where their food comes from. I mean c'mon, hot dogs are one of the worst "meats" there is.

It's a pure abomination. There are certain cuts of meat, and then there are hot dogs. "What part of the animal is in the hot dog?", one might ask. The answer is a big "?".

People really dont know, I had a girl tell me I could eat soup at her house because its made from chicken boullion, which isnt real chicken. She knew this because they make fake vanilla, but whatever, just smile wave n slap!

Trent Loos should also let us know about the heterocyclic amine content of cooked pork products, as well. Mmmm, HAs.

So don't go to a bbq just cause you don't want a vegan hotdog? Some people actually like being social! And also, not all vegan hotdogs are bad, Yves are pretty good.
