Mitt Romney, the former Republican presidential nominee and current Senator, has revealed his love for hot dogs on multiple occasions. During his 2018 Senate run, Romney declared that hot dogs were his favorite meat. While many viewed this as a clumsy attempt to connect with voters, it seems that Romney’s love for hot dogs is genuine.
In the spring of 2020, Romney found himself in isolation following a COVID exposure. During this time, he expressed his appreciation for hot dogs as a cornerstone of his personal food pyramid. In an interview with the Salt Lake Tribune, Romney shared that his son, Josh, had brought over a variety of food supplies from Costco, including hot dogs, which he referred to as one of his favorite food groups.
Hot dogs have been a popular American food since the early 20th century. They consist of a cooked sausage, usually made from beef, pork, or a combination of both, that is served in a sliced bun. Hot dogs are often topped with condiments such as mustard, ketchup, onions, and relish. They are a staple at events like barbecues, baseball games, and Fourth of July celebrations.
Romney’s affinity for hot dogs highlights his relatability and down-to-earth nature. Despite his political stature, he enjoys indulging in a classic American comfort food like hot dogs. Additionally, his mention of hot dogs in his food pyramid shows his appreciation for simple, everyday pleasures.
