This Connecticut native is in heaven having finally found Coney (white) hot dogs. Hofmann Sausage Company products are now carried in Albertson's in DFW. Brookshire's has apparently agreed to carry them as well.
Just had two Coneys for lunch with hot pepper relish (homemade) and was whisked back to my childhood. White hot dogs have a natural casing and contain pork, veal and spices. Growing up, we called them "coonies" although it's spelled Coneys. In upstate NY some people call them "white hots" or "snappys." Regardless of what they are called, I'm thrilled they have finally arrived in DFW.
And, Hofmann's is to open a bunch of hot dog fast food restaurants in the area, starting next month.
If you miss Coneys, head to Albertson's. If you've never had one, you're in for a treat.
