You may or may not be aware that yesterday – that is , July 23, 2012, was National Hot Dog Day. If you were aware of this fact, maybe you celebrated by grabbing a hot dog at your local convenience store or hot dog stand. Or maybe, if you've got a lot of money, you celebrated National Hot Dog Day in a way only wealthy can: By plunking down an enormous sum on a fancy hot dog.
The hot dogs in the gallery below range from the slightly exorbitant $69 all the way up to the completely outrageous $2,300. And there's also a wide range of ingredients, too – from expensive variants on traditional ingredients like mustard and relish to foie gras and truffles.
So even though you're too late to try any of these expensive hot dogs in time for this year's National Hot Dog Day, you can maybe start saving up your nickels and dimes now so you can afford one for next year. But, as you can see from the gallery, you might have to do a little traveling too, so don't forget to factor that into your budget.
Now, without further ado, here are the six most expensive hot dogs in the world, including one that was just unveiled yesterday – and consequently no one has been able to photograph it yet. I'm sure it looks delicious, though.
