Us Michiganders know what coney dogs are really about. There a “dos” and “don’ts” to eating hot dogs so we think it’s safe to assume the same guidelines are in place for coney dogs! According to one American Meat Trade Association’s official etiquette guide for hot dog-eating (yes, somehow this actually exists), it’s tacky to top your frank with the ketchup if you’re over 18 years of age, and pretentious to consume it with ANY utensils.
A few “dos”? Eat every part (including leftover bun bits), you can only pair it with simple drinks and sides, and you must ALWAYS lick off any condiments that you find on your fingers.
Did you know that mustard is the number one condiment people put on anything hot dog-related? Well, even though it breaks the American Meat Trade Association’s etiquette, ketchup comes in as a close second for the most popular condiment topping. With that being said, we asked our Jocks at WCSX what toppings they preferred on their coney dogs. Their answers were surprisingly similar… check them out below!
