Brace Yourself: Vegan Hot Dogs by Kraft-Heinz Are Coming!

Get ready for a new era in the hot dog industry. Kraft-, parent company of OSCAR Mayer, is launching vegan versions of their classic hot dogs and sausages, all set to debut in grocery stores later this year.

Kraft-Heinz and TheNotCompany Join Forces

Kraft-Heinz and TheNotCompany have teamed up to introduce new plant-based hot dogs and sausages, named “NotHotDogs” and “NotSausages”. This partnership follows a previous successful collaboration where they created two vegan versions of Kraft's renowned mac-and-cheese. They ingeniously used coconut, fava bean protein, and dried pineapple to mimic the cheesy flavor.

Tackling the Vegan Taste Challenge

The goal of these new products, according to Kraft-Heinz, is to replicate the flavor, color, and texture of traditional hot dogs, thereby addressing the perceived downsides of many vegan meat-alternatives. A 2023 survey revealed that taste is the primary reason many Americans discontinue the consumption of meat alternatives after initial trial.

Consumer Response and Availability
