Hot diggity dog! Last summer, the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile hit the road to ‘meat and greet’ with fans across the country, all of which relished the chance to hang out with the 27-foot-long frankfurter. But did you know that there was more than one Wienermobile out and about?
While loyal Wienermobile fans may already know six different Wienermobiles crisscross the nation year round, they may be less familiar with the other vehicles that make up the WienerFleet. This newly expanded fleet of franks were on a mission to get Oscar Mayer hot dogs, now made without added nitrates, by-products, or artificial preservatives, into hands across America. Let’s ketch up with each new addition and find out what they were up to last summer!
The OG of vehicles shaped like hot dogs, the Wienermobile started it all and led the fleet forward with a payload of 27,000 hot dogs. Wienermobiles are converted Chevrolet cars that measure at 24 hot dogs high (11 feet), 60 hot dogs long (27 feet), 18 hot dogs wide (8 feet in width), and 140,500 hot dogs worth of weight, at about 14,050 pounds.
2017 marked the official introduction of the Wienercycle and Wienerdrone to the WienerFleet. Together, the entire fleet went where other hot dogs could not in order to get a better hot dog delivered to you — all #ForTheLoveOfHotDogs. Where will this unstoppable fleet go next in 2018? Follow the hashtag — and their Twitter and Instagram handles — as the squad continues the Oscar Mayer mission of a better hot dog in every hand!
