Celebrated on September 10th
Mustard is the most popular hot dog topping (but ketchup comes in a close second). Even though it’s supposedly gauche for adults to eat ketchup on a hot dog, the verboten condiment is still a popular topping. According to one 2014 survey, 71 percent of Americans said they liked to garnish their hot dogs with mustard. However, an overwhelming 52 percent of respondents said they preferred to smother their dogs with the flavorful tomato sauce.
