We already know that the Kirkland hot dogs are 100 percent beef, but after years of hearing horror stories about sketchy ingredients in wieners, it is somewhat surprising to learn that they contain no by-products, corn syrup, phosphates, fillers, artificial color or artificial flavors, and they’re also gluten-free. That’s practically health food, right? Score one for Costco.
Wondering how they stack up against other fast food dogs? Burger King’s flame-grilled hot dogs (the menu item everyone loves to hate) weigh in at 123 grams, just like the Kirkland dogs, but have 60 fewer calories and 15 fewer grams of fat. BK’s do contain corn syrup and phosphates though, and cost 50 cents more, no drink included.
