Oscar Mayer's 'Bacon Dogs' Aren't What You Might Expect (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

Finally, Oscar Mayer has combined two of the things meat-eaters love most: bacon and hot dogs.

But don't get too excited just yet, carnivores. Oscar Mayer's "Bacon Dogs" may not be what you expect when you hear that glorious term.

According to the product's label, bacon isn't the only type of meat that is cooked into the hot dog. The bacon dogs also include turkey, chicken and pork.

While the product is not like a typical bacon dog (a hot dog wrapped in bacon), Oscar Mayer claims its new recipe is the first of its kind.

"No one knows bacon like Oscar Mayer," Jared Baker, director of Oscar Mayer hot dogs, said in a statement. "We know Americans love bacon, and we know they love hot dogs, so it seemed like the perfect time for us to introduce our first hot dog made with bacon."

Produced by Kraft Foods Group, Oscar Mayer's bacon dogs will hit stores this week in time for Memorial Day and will become widely available in June, notes Yahoo's Shine! blog.
