Mini-CornDog Box Picture Vs Reality

Reader Chris was excited about his recent purchase of 60 Mini-CornDogs — until he opened the package. Inside he found.. weird spherical hotdog bits.

Chris says:

I purchased some State Fair mini Corn Dogs (Classic, 60 count) last week, and the corndogs pictured on the box appear to be the same corndogs I’ve known and loved for years: about 3 inches long by 1.5 inches across.

However, when I opened the box, the corndogs inside were all spherical, about 1 inch in diameter.

The reason I bought the corndogs was because getting 60 of the product pictured on the box for the price I paid seemed like a good deal.

After realizing I only got about half the amount of food I expected, it doesn’t seem like such a good deal anymore.

I contacted SaraLee about it; waiting to hear what they have to say.

While you’re waiting, maybe you could heat some of these up and sneak them into someone’s Dunkin’ Donuts Munchkins box? Eh? Think about it.
