Here are some actual customer reviews...
"If it ain't Bright Leaf, I ain't eaten it."
"I was raised in NC, and these were the only hotdogs we ever ate! I moved out of state and stopped eating hot dogs completely because there were disgusting options only available..."
"Best hot dog and bologna in the world. I have eaten them long as I remember, and I am 54 years old."

Where are Bright Leaf Hot Dogs in the grocery store?
Sometimes looking for our products can be like a fun treasure hunt! If you don't see our franks on the wall or well with other hot dogs, be sure to check the bunkers in the middle of the store. If you still can't find us at a grocer near you, don't worry - we can always ship directly to your doorstep.
How do I pick the perfect dogs at the store?
The freshest franks will almost always be found at either the bottom of the bunker or at the back of the well. Important: look at the expiration date on the tag before purchasing

How do I store Bright Leaf Hot Dogs, and how long do they last?
Bright Leaf Hot Dogs are made fresh and sitting in grocery stores within three days and only last 21 days. If you're going to eat them soon after purchasing them, just put them in the fridge. But if you're going to wait, open up the loose bag, take whatever hot dogs you need, take the rest of the dogs, put them in a Ziploc bag, and put them in the freezer so they'll last longer.
