The 4th of July just wouldn't be complete without
Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest!
Held at Nathan's original and best-known restaurant in Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York this annual eating competition takes place every year on July 4th. It's regarded as the world's most famous hot dog eating contest with very spirited and rich traditions. Tens of thousands attend this event and nearly two million will view it on ESPN.
In addition to fireworks and the neighborhood BBQ, watching this every year is has become one of our favorite family traditions. So, we couldn't let today pass without honoring it with our very own hot dog cake pops!
Now, we all know that Joey Chestnut holds the world record with 68 hot dogs and buns consumed in 10 minutes, but the real question is:
How many hot dog cake pops could he eat in that time?
Consider that a challenge!
