Snap-O-Razzo Hot Dogs are the hot dogs that finally let a passionate fat kid not feel guilty about having more than one!

Growing up in a 100 percent Italian household is the reason why you can eat my first line of sausages today. The food I experienced was so wonderful as a kid that, now as a chef I try to cook anything that can transport me back to that feeling, to those tastes and smells.

When I was younger, I would occasionally trick the school nurse so that my grandfather had to come pick me up… and I knew he would take me for lunch at Ben’s Kosher Deli or Galeotafiore Italian Pork Store & Deli in Long Island, NY. This began my early education on pork and beef and everything that makes them delicious. I was 6 years old eating high quality kosher hot dogs, pastrami, fresh sausages, and more.

My first taste of a German bratwurst, slowly cooked in onions and a white gravy, was at my great grandmother’s house. And I felt so lucky when my mother would cook me kielbasa in a pan, charred on both sides with mustard. I always loved smokey, salty, sharp sausages that make you salivate and want to drink something sweet like root beer or cream soda.

I have put several years into research and development with the goal of creating a high-quality hot dog that, unlike so many other hot dogs out there, actually brings back good memories and a smile to your face when you eat it.

Snap-O-Razzo Hot Dogs are Maple wood smoked, made with quality meats and fresh lamb casing for that unmistakable juicy snap with every bite. They’re higher in protein and lower in fat and sodium than most brands. With no MSG, fillers, additives, unnatural beef flavors, or gluten, they make you feel good and not guilty. It’s impossible to just have one…

That snap, man. That snap is nostalgic and tremendously satisfying. That snap is unforgettable. That snap takes me back to New York street carts and delis. Thanks for bringing back the memories and also for showing us the future, Snap-O-Razzo.

No matter how you cook them — steamed, simmered, sizzled on the grill, or lazily plumped in a microwave — these are damn good hotdogs. Vegetarians find a loophole. No one should pass up a Snap-O-Razzo”.

I grew up in New York and New Jersey eating hot dogs. Enjoying a good hot dog was often talked about at family functions and with friends. I even got in the hot dog business a few years back. Your product brings me back to the flavors I remember as a kid. I have always said, “Hot dogs skipped a generation.” Ralph Perrazzo’s passion has brought it back with Snap-O-Razzo Hot Dogs.

Eating and writing about hot dogs is my hobby. I have sampled dozens of brands and eaten at close to two hundred hot dog establishments. At the top of my list of favorites are Snap-O-Razzo brand hot dogs. They are high quality as well as delicious. The pork/beef blend has a unique, coarser texture and a wonderful blend of spices. The only mixed meat frank I will prepare in water as it is specially made to be prepared that way. I enjoy the all-beef franks prepared low and slow on a griddle. These are like the dogs you get in New York delis only with better quality beef and a richer, smokier flavor. Both franks are top of the line examples of their type and highly recommended. You won't find better quality frankfurters anywhere. If you love hot dogs, you must try these. Well worth going out of your way to find.
