I wasn't convinced until I saw that serving suggestion. Parsley and everything*!?
* "everything" being other parsley... and a plate.

I don't have any wieners, alas, so I can't answer that question. :)
I'm also quite amused that a little plastic bag is marketed as a "Remarkable New Food Packaging Invention".
I admit, I had a quick try at locating the aforementioned patent - what actually was being patented? Presumably putting a bag of sauce into a can containing other items. A patent.. O.o;
"The WIENER the WORLD AWAITED!"
Look at me, completely smirk-free.
"Made Solely of SELECTED Beef and Pork."
"Selected" as in "the parts we swept off the floor."
Good point. Not "select", a protected term for meat grading by the FDA. Just a similar word...
"Hey Bill, which pile of offal goes in the machine next?"
"The one in the blue bucket."
Thus, it is "selected".
This sort of creative language is why I'm skeptical of any food item that's described as "made with" whatever ingredient, e.g. "made with real fruit juice!" Not "of," not "contains" nor "including" nor even a percentage. Just "with."
Do they mean the "with" as in possessing, or "with" as in accompanied? As in "I baked a cake with my grandmother." Of course there's no grandmother in the cake, we cooperated in making the cake is what's meant. So I wonder about that and things like the fruit juice...was it just kind of sitting there in a glass next to the plastic extruder as it cranked out completely synthetic gummi bears?
I need to pin this. It's so bizarre.
I think I have a 1952 issue of the Saturday evening post with this ad in it.
