Loeb’s Onion Crunch

by · 174 comments

hot_dog_cart_radio_logoUpdate 4/14/11: A few days after this article went live I was contacted by Nick Loeb the owner of Loeb’s Onion Crunch! He was amazed at the response this article generated. Apparently a few of you even posted pictures of your Onion Crunch topped hot dogs on Facebook. That’s awesome!

Anyway, I asked Nick if he would like to do an episode of Hot Dog Cart Radio with me and he graciously agreed. It was a fun interview and we even ended up turning it into a contest at the end.

Nick is giving away a ____ ____ _ ____ ____!!!

Thanks Nick!!! (You need to listen to the interview to find out what the prizes are and how to win them.)

Hot Dog Cart Radio – Nick Loeb of Onion Crunch

I’ll notify the three winners by email and post their names in the comments.

I’m excited!!!

*******************************

Here is the original article that started this whole thing:

This looks really tasty!

onionbottleAs hot doggers, we are always trying to come up with ways to differentiate our products from the competition. Check this out…

I just found out about a new topping that would really make your hot dogs stand out from the crowd.

It’s called Onion Crunch from Loeb’s Foods in New York.

From the Onion Crunch web site:

onion crunch

LOEB’S ONION CRUNCH is bound to put a smile on your face when you want a light, crispy, low-carb, low cholesterol topping. Add some Crunch to your Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, Salads, and Pizza. Best of all Onion Crunch contains 0 grams of trans fat so sprinkle on as much as you want. You might want to get 2 bottles. Yes, they’re that good! It’s the Crunch you will Crave.

Onion Crunch — crispy and fried made from fresh onions which have specially been developed from onion varieties. They are peeled, washed, cut and battered in order to create a perfect crispy onion. Then they are fried in high-quality vegetable oil to give them an absolute delicious taste.

They are sprinkled or used in small quantities to bring crispiness and a roasted onion flavor to salads, sandwiches, dips, soups, spreads, baked potatoes, pizza, hotdogs and burgers.

Compared to fresh onions the crispy fried onions are more sustainable remaining fresher with a shelf life of over 8 months.

********************

I haven’t tried them yet but they look awesome. Just the thing to give your dogs some crunch. You can order Onion Crunch through their web site here.

I am not affiliated in any way with this company. I just saw it and wanted to let you know about it.

What do you think?

I think you’ve just offered me a wonderful solution!

I use the Frenchs onions and sprinkle some real bacon bits on my Chicago dog and talk about good. I have repeat customers some want onion but not the breath. Works nice, Thanks Steve, I’m gonna order some and see if there’s a difference.

They look good. What we do is grill onions and peppers and keep them in the steamer and top the dog when requested. They are a big hit at our cart.

Tried this at the NW food service show on Monday. Prety salty, came away kind of negative. Unfortunately it was served up on a cheapo 7-11 dog. Took a sample jar home and will try it on a Hebrew National

Man Bites Dog,
You are right – anything would taste bad on a convenience store “roller dog”. Give it a shot on the Hebrew. I bet it’ll be great! My onion crunch is on it’s way. I’ll report back here and let you know…

I think the idea is great as an option. I prefer grilling fresh onions and bell peppers. John.

Nick Loeb

Thank you everyone for ordering.

Just some info,the Durkee/French product ingredients is first Palm Oil, Wheat Flour, Onions, Soy Flour, Salt and Dextrose

Onion Crunch is not only made from 100% Real Onions and has no chemicals, its main #1 ingredient is Fresh Onions. They also have more of a Crunch and More Flavor.

And I am not saying this because I am the owner, if you don’t like it after you taste it, send it back to me and I will refund your money in full.
