Did you know that today was National Corndog Day? It seems that since 1992 the first Saturday of the NCAA Basketball Tournament has been celebrated as Corndog Day.
The corn dog has been around since sometime in the early 1900’s. Like many street or fast foods, the origins are shrouded by the mists of time and there are several claimants for the creation of the first corn dogs.
Today though we can all agree that a true corn dog is a hot dog on a stick that is coated in corn meal and deep fried.
Oh, and for our neighbors up north, they call it a pogo.
Hot Dog on a Stick was founded in 1946 with the first location in Santa Monica, California at Muscle Beach.
I only bought one corn dog. However, once I finished it I was wanting more. Perhaps it was a good thing I walked all the way across the mall from Hot Dog on a Stick before I sat down to eat it. I saved quite a few calories 🙂
Did you eat a corn dog today?
