ISO anything close to Best's Kosher Deli Franks

greygarious May 17, 2009 01:30 PM

Visiting Lutheran here! I haven't found any hot dog here in the Boston area as good as Best's was. I'm thinking it was the garlic, and wish I had paid attention to the label. Heck, had I known they were being discontinued I'd have filled my freezer. Are there any other brands with a similar flavor?

    Hebrew National have always been the best.

      Abeles & Heymann's dogs have a great flavor of garlic and are premium IMHO.

        Thank you - the A&H website is not up yet but I'll keep checking and hope there's a local or online source. Hebrew National was the first thing I tried after learning that Best's was gone - I was disappointed. Pearl is big in the Boston area but is a different taste entirely; I thought Ball Park (made by SaraLee, which owned Best's, so maybe the similarity is intentional) was more like it, though still not as good. Goy that I am, I've no idea whether or not either of those is kosher.

          There is a kosher store in Brookline called The Butcherie. They must have some kosher dogs.

            I emailed A&H recently; they said the Butcherie on Harvard Ave. carries their full line of products.
