To celebrate Memorial Day, a new Oscar Mayer hot dog is being released that will excite bacon lovers everywhere: a bacon-infused wiener. In addition to being made up of mechanically separated chicken, pork and turkey parts, this hot dog is cooked with bacon pieces directly inside the casing, giving bacon connoisseurs an unforgettable experience.

Contrary to popular belief, the bacon-infused Oscar Mayer hot dog is not nearly as unhealthy as it might sound; a single dog is only 130 calories. This effort to highlight healthy aspects of its products is part of Oscar Mayer's transition into the world of healthy eating. Some of its new products include fat-free hot dogs, lite hot dogs and a gluten-free chicken breast hot dog.

These bacon-infused hot dogs are perfect for any barbecues you're hosting over the long weekend or even just for a fun culinary adventure.
