Are Niman Ranch Fearless Franks any good?
These are one of the most enjoyable store bought hot dogs I’ve enjoyed. The name and quality of Niman Ranch (a collection of farms) always shines through, and that’s the case here. The dog offers a good snappy casing while the sausage itself isn’t overly spicy or salty. This one won’t repeat on you over and over and over 😉
Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC – Utah’s biggest and oldest online food magazine; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with multiple local publications from Visit Salt Lake to Salt Lake Magazine, not least helped to consult on national TV shows.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for the better part of fifteen years. I’m largely fueled by a critical obsession with rice, alliteration and the use of big words I don’t understand. I started Shop Smart to catalogue my adventures in the grocery store and kitchen.
