  • Doggin' Trail: The Food Dude sets out in search of the metro's best hot dog

    BY DAVE CATHEY Food Editor dcathey@oklahoman.com | Published: Thu, Aug 27, 2015

    Frankly (apologies), the disparity for hot dog passion between Oklahoma City and Chicago or New York City is as wide as our proximity to Coney Island. But that doesn't mean we don't love us a good dawg. Just ask Schwab Meat Co., which has feasted on Oklahoma's appetite for hot links and wieners since 1912. The official hot dog of the University of Oklahoma is also the dog of choice for homemade coneys from Norman to Stillwater, Shawnee to Yukon, and the picnic frank most likely to cook over an open fire from Lake Thunderbird to Lake Overholser. Just ask the generations of folks who've kept two local hot dog vendors operating under the name Coney Island downtown since 1928 with a second store carrying the name in Capitol Hill

  • Heinz no longer qualifies as ketchup in Israel

    Published: Mon, Aug 24, 2015

    JTA — In the United States, Heinz is nearly synonymous with ketchup, but Israel has kicked the brand out of that category of condiments all together. Israel’s Health Ministry recently ruled that the Heinz brand product does not contain enough “tomato solids” to be labeled as ketchup in Israeli stores. It will now be relegated to the title “tomato seasoning,” Ynet reported. The ruling was the result of a lobbying campaign by Israeli food manufacturer Osem, which produces a large portion of the ketchup consumed in Israel. Israelis have long complained that local monopolies distort the economy, and especially the food market, leading to high prices on products like cottage cheese and Milky brand pudding.
