"If you get past the weird ingredients it makes a phenomenal topping for hot dogs. I am not fond of them and with this on top even I was looking longingly at a second."

"Surprisingly good. The first bite was a little sweet for me, but by the time I finished my hot dog, I absolutely had to have more..."
