Kraft Introduces Oscar Mayer Gluten-Free Chicken Breast Hot Dog
Kraft Foods Group Inc. is growing its Oscar Mayer Selects brand with the Chicken Breast Hot Dog. These new bun stuffers contain no artificial preservatives, flavors or colors. Additionally, the uncured hot dog is made with chicken breast, contains no added hormones, and is completely gluten free. Sold in packs of eight, each 53g hot dog contains 80 calories and 5g of fat.
Another new summer-time grilling option from Oscar Mayer includes the Bacon Dog, which is not gluten free but definitely worth noticing. This high-flavor item is the first bacon hot dog on the market and is made with hardwood-smoked, Oscar Mayer bacon. Each 50g link contains 130 calories and 11g of fat.
In efforts to appeal to consumers looking for better-for-you grilling options, the company has re-branded its 98% Fat Free Wieners and Light Beef Franks as Extra Lean Franks and Lean Beef Franks, respectively. They now also come in full-bun length.
