This sounds a lot like a blog post for a contest, doesn’t it? Sorry to disappoint you, it is not. I will gain nothing from this post, except for the satisfaction of genuinely professing my appreciation and preference for this product (which I just recently discovered).
Today I was in the grocery of Market! Market! in Taguig. As soon as I got in from the parking lot, I saw this long line of people buying hotdogs from a Virginia Hotdogs stand. I got curious because there were way too many people. When I saw the price, P12 per stick, I figured maybe that’s why people fall in line; it’s cheap! Cost is almost always a persuasive factor when deciding which brand to buy. Most of the time, we are willing to sacrifice a little in the taste department, if the savings are worth it. In this case, long line and P12 per stick, made a lot of sense to me.
My turn came and I bought a stick just to assuage my grumbling tummy. I was surprised at how good this hotdog tasted. So surprised that I think Virginia Hotdogs deserved a blog post of praise. Indeed, it was the best P12 I ever spent!
Serious competition. As far as I know, Virginia Hotdogs are made in Cebu and is a major brand among the locals there, and with good reason. Purefoods hotdogs, though considered to be the nation’s favorite hotdog is too expensive. The cheapest hotdog stand I’ve seen in Manila sells Purefoods hotdogs for P17 apiece, and I’m talking Jolly Jeep prices. We’ve all gotten used to the taste of Purefoods but after trying Virginia I realized how SALTY Purefoods is! Tender Juicy hotdogs are OK and are the first choice in most establishments, but I think restaurants should also start considering using Virginia for their recipes. Not only is it cheap, Virginia hotdogs are very delicious; a welcome change from the salty hotdogs we have all gotten used to.
New standards. With products like Virginia hotdogs, I am hoping that there will be some kind of upliftment in terms of quality, taste and cleanliness. I am a satisfied customer and my house guests can expect to see Virginia Hotdogs in my freezer every time I restock.
