Rochester NY area hot!

A little background first, my mother -in -laws late neighbors spent summers in the Rochester area and they would always bring back hot dogs that my wife loved.

The hot dogs were white in color with natural casings but the name of the company that made them escapes my wife and her mother....Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

  1. Hoffmanns? If this isn't correct don't buy whatever you are thinking of, buy the Hoffmans instead. They are made in syracuse. Good thing you asked, it made me look them up, looks like you can purchase them online now. Thats a good thing since i can't get them down here on Long Island and they are my favorite Hot Dogs.

      thank you for the response jpf, we may just give them a try!

    2. They are called Zweigle's and they are the BEST thing ever.

      (Sorry - but WAY better than Hoffmanns.)

        You can buy Zweigle's hots (red and white) at Wegman's.
