Deutschmacher Natural Casing Frankfurters

Since most of my friends and acquaintances know that I regularly review many different food products, sometimes they will give me a sample of a product or serve a specific item that they think I might want to review, when I visit their homes. Such is the case with Deutschmacher Franks.

When I was at a good friend’s house one night last week, his wife asked us if we wanted to eat any hot dogs. She said that she had purchased some Deutschmacher Franks and wanted to make sure they were consumed while nice and fresh. Previously, I had seen Deutschmacher Franks at the supermarket, but I thought that they were too expensive for my limited budget. I am a huge fan of hot dogs and I was eager to try Deutschmacher Franks.

As it turns out, I ate two of the Deutschmacher Franks and I’m very glad that I had the opportunity to try them. Presented here, in an effort to assist the consumer, is one food writer’s product review of Deutschmacher Natural Casing Frankfurters.

Size
When I ate the two Deutschmacher Natural Casing Frankfurters recently, they seemed to be roughly the same size as most other brands of hot dogs. I remember thinking that they were quite filling and substantial, when topped with mustard, relish and sauerkraut. My friend’s wife told me that she had purchased a three pound box of the Deutschmacher Natural Casing Frankfurters at a local supermarket. The three pound box normally holds approximately 19 franks, which is equivalent to approximately 2.35 regular size packages of eight franks each.

Price
The regular retail price charged for one 48 ounce (three pound) box of Deutschmacher Natural Casing Frankfurters at Hartford, Connecticut area supermarkets is approximately $13.49. That works out to $0.71c per hot dog, or roughly $4.50 per pound.

Hot dogs are one of my very favorite foods and have been since I was a child. I have eaten and purchased many different brands of frankfurters through the years and like eating them so much, that I could eat at least one hot dog every day. To me, $4.50 per pound for hot dogs sounds awfully steep. Of course, $0.71c per hot dog sounds much more reasonable.

Texture
The texture of Deutschmacher Natural Casing Frankfurters is definitely that of a high quality hot dog. The natural casing on the franks provides a little snap to the dogs when they are bitten into. I must say, I like the way the meat in these franks is ground. When I was eating these franks, I felt like I was eating carefully made dogs that contained real meat.

The Deutschmacher Natural Casing Frankfurters that I ate were topped with mustard, relish and sauerkraut and the textures of the condiments contrasted well with the franks. The overall mouth feel offered by these hot dogs is very nice.

Nutritional Facts
Deutschmacher Natural Casing Frankfurters contain 220 calories, with 170 calories from fat, per one frank serving. These delicious hot dogs also contain 7 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams trans fat, 19 grams total fat, 45 mg of cholesterol, 680 mg of sodium, 2 grams total carbohydrates, 0 grams of dietary fiber, 2 grams of sugars and 9 grams of protein, per one frankfurter serving.

Taste / Flavor
The flavor of Deutschmacher Natural Casing Frankfurters is very good. Being somewhat of a hot dog connoisseur, I have probably eaten at least 25 different brands of hot dogs and I know a good hot dog when I encounter it. These frankfurters are what I would consider to be excellent franks, but I’m still not certain if they are worth the retail price charged for them.

The ground meat tastes hearty, yet mellow and the seasoning in these hot dogs is balanced well. I enjoyed eating these hot dogs, but I like Ball Park Franks and Nathan’s just as much, if not more.

Packaging
Deutschmacher Natural Casing Frankfurters are not packaged like most brands of hot dogs at the supermarket. At Hartford, Connecticut area supermarkets, these frankfurters are available in the three pound box that my friend’s wife purchased. They may be available in other quantities, but the three pound box is the only size I could find in stock at local stores.

Overall Rating
These frankfurters are priced much higher than most other brands of hot dogs. While I thoroughly enjoyed eating them, I really don’t understand what justifies their exorbitant retail price. The flavor of these hot dogs is very pleasant and appealing and their texture is very agreeable. If you can afford them, then I highly recommend them. As for myself, I’m quite content with a Ball Park Frank topped with mustard and relish.
