What's the Deal with Bright Red Hot Dogs? Is that a novelty thing?

I keep seeing those red hot dogs at Walmart and other stores. I kind of want to buy a pack but my sensible side says they probably taste the same. 
Is that just a novelty thing? Or is there something else to it?

I like the ones that are the "Red Hots" because of the spiciness , They do give a  good crunch when you bite them but other than that it's just a different Dog , Put them on a Pretzel roll with a good brown mustard and kraut and that's good eating

They're called " red snappers". Pretty common in Maine. The skin has a "snap" to it when bit. 

Hotdogs aside, can we get some info on the avatar pic? What is going on there?

Yummy toxic chemical coloring in the rest

Red dye # 5 ? or was it 7 that was banned as toxic. 

Buy American made, to be sure they aren't toxic.

Heh.  :)
They are actually German Frankfurters.
Americans called them Hot Dogs as a slur to imply they're made with dog meat. 

I love hot dogs and try not to think too much about what's in them. I'm going to try some of those red ones just for fun.

Sooo now you've peaked my curiosity. Yes I love hot dogs as well. I had 10 lbs of Thumanns shipped to me. Vacuum sealed them in portions of 4. Brought them on our family vacation w/ my son's family and they are a huge hit. Unfortunately my daughter in law cooked them in her new air fryer. Wasn't great. She's a really good cook otherwise. It's her new toy and she's experimenting using it on everything. It dried and shriveled them. 

Back to red hots or red hot snappers (doesn't feel right typing that), what brands are the "real ones"? Any recommendations? I'm on the lookout for them.

Thanks!

JD

P.S. I just had two Thumanns for breakfast before another trout outing.

A few years back I was hunting in a deer camp in New York.   A buddy from Syracuse  brought down some white hot dogs that were popular up there.  I don't know if they will made from veal or what but he said they're very popular up that way.

Likely Hoffmans  The "snappy griller" is the white one if you are inclined to order any.

These came from a deli, and I think he called them coneys.
