The next time you head to Fenway Park and complain about their "expensive" hot dogs, you better think again. You want to see an expensive hot dog? Just ask the Brockton Rocks.
The Rox, an independent baseball team in the Can-Am League, set a Guinness world record on Saturday when they sold two K-O Dogs for the whopping price of $80 per dog. Mind you, these are no ordinary hot dogs.
The pimped-out wiener was a foot-long, all-beef frank, "deep fried and rolled in truffle oil, then coated in porcini dust, sprinkled with white truffle shavings and topped with dollops of creme fraiche, caviar and fresh roe," according to the Brockton Rox website. (via NESN)
That's..interesting, to say the least. Prior to Saturday, the world record was held by Serendipity 3, a restaurant chain in New York City, which sold a hot dog at $69. Louis Glanz bought the record-breaking hot dog in Brockton.
