Cool Combo: Hots Dogs And Ice Cream

Friday, February 19, 2010 17:20 GMT

BOSTON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Oddly enough, hot dogs and ice cream are a tasty combination.

A Cool Dog is an ice cream and cake treat shaped exactly like a classic hot dog. The “sausage” is made from vanilla ice cream and the “bun” is made from cake.

It’s drizzled with chocolate syrup and can be customized with additional toppings like whipped cream, sprinkles, and candy.

Dan Weil owns the Cool Dog company and is about launch his puppies into the market.

He figures they’ll go over well at carnivals, sporting events, arcades, bowling alleys, hospitals, and retirement homes – just about anywhere kids and senior citizens gather.

He says the product combines two great American staples and is so delicious and addictive, taste testers have asked if there’s nicotine in them.

While he’s working toward getting Cool Dogs into ballparks, he doesn’t think they’ll replace actual hot dogs, even if they also go great with beer.
