Ever since I was a kid I've enjoyed Oscar Mayer hot dogs. I was even in an Oscar Mayer commercial when I was 7. One thing I always thought was super cool was the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile. These custom made 27 foot trucks are just so different than anything else on the road. A true Hot dog on wheels, these things have been around for years and their main job is driving around America giving people free samples.

While there, they will be giving tours of the Wienermobile, playing games with customers and swapping stories. If you're lucky enough you might even get a Weiner Whistle.
