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.)

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:

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.
