We told you earlier this month about French’s mustard ice cream, and now, we have to break the news to you that something even more interesting has come out in the ice cream world. Frankly, I’m not too sure about this one.
Just days after the mustard ice cream announcement, Oscar Mayer announced news of it’s own. The Ice Dog. What is the Ice Dog? So glad you asked! It’s an ice cream sandwich that consists of candied hot dog bits, hot dog sweet cream, spicy dijon gelato, and a cookie bun. And yes, it is a real thing.
Oscar Mayer collaborated with New York-based ice cream shop il laboratorio del gelato to create the mashup. The intent was to one up French’s after their ice cream debut, but all in good fun of course. To make it even more fun, the iconic Weinermobile will be transformed to look like an ice cream truck just for the occasion.
