    I search it on the net to no avail maybe it's just me but with the price being so low, I can't help but think what's in it. 30% meat bi-products and the rest being water, salt, spices and enhancers?

    It tastes really good but I'm having second thoughts

    Being environmentally conscious, Ikea decided to use deceased Swedes in their hotdogs.

    I think they use Norwegians when the supply of Swedes runs low.

    It's all about recycling.

    I wouldn't be put off any more with cheap Ikea hot dogs than any other hotdog since it is likely a loss leader for a furniture store and not priced to make any money. Probably standard hotdogs.

    The strangest thing here is that you did a search on Ikea hot dogs. Did you think they manufactured them themselves???

    Though "offal" sounds like it's derived from "awful," it apparently derives from "fallen off." Do a search on nutritional value of rodent lips.

    I had one. About one of the nastiest things I've ever eaten. Never again. Eat the furniture instead.

    Like I've always said. . .

    Hotdogs: the "grab bag" of "meat" products. You never know what you're going to get.

    Ikea hotdogs have lettuce, tomatoes, finely chopped onions, dill, black olives, beluga caviar and some extra pure virgin olive oil. They are the mainstay of Nole's secret diet.

    If you want a good hotdog at a reasonable price, get the ones at Costco.

    Thats becasue Costco serves Hebrew National's which are legit hot dogs.

    As far as ikea actual dogs they are probably very similar to an oscar mayer wiener you can buy in stores. 3 bucks gets you 10 dogs. What we can for 30 cents ikea probably buys for 5. I doubt there is any trickery with artifical fillers and stuff just a regular pork hot dog.

    Costco serves "Kirkland" dogs. 100% beef.

    They do sell Hebrew National and these are good, but I prefer the Kirkland.

    Go to IKEA on a Saturday or Sunday morning and prepare to be amazed by the number of people eating breakfast. Who knew IKEA would be the new hot place for weekend brunch?

    They are using actual dogs:D.

    no JK, I don't want to know what many foods contain. People always want cheaper foods, no one is wanting to pay for quality. Of course we buy 30 dollar oil for our car but into our bodies we pour 50 cent cheapo oil.

    we can buy so much crap today, I think that is the buyers fault. the information is available but still people buy the cheap crap.

    Specifically, those crazy, fun-lovin' Swedes use "mus" (loosley translated=mouse) in their hotdogs....or better yet, hotdogs in their 'mus' ...

    ...as mus and hotdogs are a very compatible combination...

    ..as 'mus' (Svenska) does not connote a rodent, per se..

    .. as it should be..


    As for hotdogs, www.waltershotdogs.com (Walters hotdogs, Mamaroneck, NY) is all you need to know.

    Been a long time since I've eaten at Ikea. Gotta try it.

    Nathans hot dogs are loaded with fat but tasty, because they are loaded with fat.

    Costco is all good but I get the Italian sausauge and this is strange but if you take it home, leave it in the frig for one day, reheat in microwave, it tastes better? I don't know if it is due to the fat soaking into the rather bland buns or not but tastes better to me anyways.
