Anyways, she's been on the hunt for a decent hot dog at a reasonable cost, and she [thinks she] scored.

And check out the ingredients---no onion powder! Bark!
Turkey, Water, Seasoning (Sugar, Sea Salt, Mustard, Celery Powder, Sodium Carbonate, Spices*, Paprika, Cherry Powder (Tart Cherries, Rice Flour, Sunflower, Lecithin), Extractive of Paprika, Molasses (Sugar Cane, Molasses), Spice Extractives*.
I better note that it says spices, which could, of course, mean onion powder. However, I'm just going to pawsume that IF there is any it is quite minuscule since it wasn't listed out specifically.
The Sodium is startling high (670mg/hot dog), but like I mentioned, we don't get them often. (BTDubbs: One tip Mom has read about but not confirmed is that boiling them reduces the sodium.) Anyways, there is 0 Trans Fat, 1 g Saturated Fat per dog, 90 Calories, 50mg Cholesterol, 2 g Sugars, and 12 g Protein per hot dog.
What do you think? Have you found any other dog-friendly (or friendlier) hot dogs?
A rather crappy pic but you get the idea....
PeeEs. Mom finally sliced these bad boys up and has them in the oven right now! 200F, for a few hours and they should be some tasty little jerky treats.
