Here’s a story you’ll relish: Oscar Mayer and Ball Park are in court to determine who has America’s best-tasting weenie.
The judge opened the case in Chicago Monday by declaring ”Let the wiener wars begin.” You can catch up to the court action with this NPR article.
At issue is which Chicago company can claim to have the best dog.
Ball Park mustered a legal challenge after Oscar Mayer said “We are tastier” in a 2009 ad campaign.
Immediately, lawyers for the companies immediately began grilling the competition.
The Fooducate blog said neither tastes best. And wurst … err … worst of all, the processed meats are chock full of sulfites and sulfates. ”Buying an identifiable piece of meat … is a preferred choice,” Fooducate said.
A federal judge will determine which company can claim to be best, not a hungry jury.
