              They are great...might not knock your socks off but they are a guilty pleasure of mine!

          Haven't had them, as they are so non traditional. I prefer an all beef hot dog, made from meat, no organs or fillers, in the kosher style.

          Also will have to go with Costco if we're talking store bought.

            Pulling up this thread as the season begins.
            Sobey's has introduced Nathan's Famous beef hot dogs in Ontario at 2 packs, 750 g for $7.
            I don't know if they are also in Quebec, or if IGA etc. has picked them up, but if they are I would be interested in how they have been received, or taste.

              The best hotdog for me are Hebrew National .They are available in Jewish Delis in Montreal and widely in the USA. Try it you'll like it !

                In my opinion the best store bought hot-dogs in Montreal are the Kirkland signature Polish sausages at Costco. The regular all-beef hot-dogs are also really good, but both are just so damn big.

                I haven't had a Hebrew National in a while. I thought they weren't available anymore. I should go check my local kosher store.

                  Thumann's - love 'em grilled. Nice crispy casing.

                  Definitely widely available in the US - not sure about Canada.
