National Corndog Day

March 11, 2017

Sources are unsure about the origins of one of America’s favorite treats on a stick. Some argue that Pronto Pup vendors at the Minnesota State Fair invented the corndog in 1941. Others give credit to Carl and Neil Fletcher, who introduced the “corny dog” to the public at the Texas State Fair between 1938 and 1941. We just say “thank you!”

National Corndog Day occurs once a year, timed with the opening of the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Championship. The deep-fried cornmeal battered hot dog is combined with tater tots and beer to kick off the basketball series.

Sonic Restaurants are serving 50-cent corndogs all day long on March 18.

We are fine with celebrating the corndog all year long. We just have one question for you: Ketchup or Mustard?
