@Venezia You need to look up the correct definition of gouging. It's selling something that is hard to find at an outrageous price.


Hot dogs can be purchased ANYWHERE!

@Love my grandkids - You need to reread my post.  Nowhere did I use the word "gouging".


I gave my opinion about this item.  That's all.  Just as you've given yours.


Perhaps your comment was meant for another poster?


BTW, I already know the definition of "gouging".  No dictionary needed, thank you.

@Reever IT AIN'T PRICE GOUGING!!!  Yep, I'm yelling.


Any vendor can sell any product at any price they choose. You have the option to buy or not.

Shame on QVC and RayRastelli for price gouging. He is selling a gimmick (round hot dogs) for $83.50 for 5.25 pounds. I shake my head at anyone who would purchase this item. A 12 pack of angus hot dogs can be purchased for around $5 at Walmart.

@Reever    I agree.  I just bought 2 packs of the brand name angus hot dogs at my local grocery store for $8.00...on sale for the holiday.   I can't justify paying the Q price for a round hot dog.  For those that can....enjoy.

I rarely eat hot dogs but when I make them at home, after cooking I slice length wise and then in half.  I arrange on a hamburger bun then add toppings.  Easier to eat and the toppings stay in place.


I like the round shape and if they were sold in small packages I would buy.  I don't wonder or think about what or why people buy what they do.  Figure it's because they like it and want it.  Not my business.

In this instance, I agree with you.  That's the sale price and it comes out to $3.50 a "dog"?  The regular price is $101.  WTH?


I know it's up to each person to spend his/her money as that person sees fit, but come on.


If I want a hot dog, I want a hot dog.  Not something shaped like a burger, so that I can have it on a round bun.  If I want that, I'll have a burger!


I'll stick with my favorite Oscar Mayer, Angus beef.  I get a pack of 24 at BJs for something like $11.50.  But I buy them when I have a coupon and save another $2.50 or more.

If all I have are round buns, after it's cooked, I just split the hot dog down the middle the long way, place the flat halves on the bottom bun and top with other half of the bun and I have a hot dog on a round bun. :smileyhappy:

Re: Hot dogs almost $16 per pound

Hate to say this, but in the Denver metro area many times I've had to go to more than 1 store to find Hebrew National or Oscar Meyer hot dogs. It's a problem. I'll do without before paying the Q for something that over priced.
