The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council Ruled that Hot Dogs Aren’t Sandwiches

National Hot Dog and Sausage Council (NHDSC) made an official ruling when it comes to hot dogs: They deemed that hot dogs are not sandwiches. “Limiting a hot dog’s significance by saying it’s ‘just a sandwich’ is like calling the Dalai Lama ‘just a guy,'” said Janet Riley, the president of the NHDSC.
