Yup. These are for real. Hoffy Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs make it even easier to eat a fat on fat product: you no longer have to buy the bacon separately! OC Weekly calls Hoffy's target market people who are "too lazy to wrap bacon around hot dogs themselves." Here's the brand's description of the dogs:
It's official! Now your family can enjoy the irresistible taste of our premium Hoffy Bacon wrapped around a premium Hoffy Frank. Doubly delicious and made with our uncompromising commitment to quality, these Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs are ready to grill, fry or bake. It's the new official taste of L.A.
Bacon wrapped hot dogs are a popular street food out west and indeed are the official hot dog of the City of Angels. The blogger Foodie Fantasia got her hands on some Hoffy franks and was pleased with the results. She admits, "I know it probably seemed like common sense, but I still had to follow the directions for cooking on the back of the package, which are written pretty precisely and specifically so as not to unravel the bacon wrapped around the franks." She found the franks to be "quite delicious" but also salty and greasy.
