Consumer Reports Ranks Hot Dogs and Light Beer


Consumer Reports has recently rated the best tasting light beers and hot dogs for summer. As we all know, less calories does not always mean better taste but it's good too see how they match up.

Rank Product Calories (12 fl oz.)
1 Michelob Ultra Amber 114
2 Michelob Light 113
3 Michelob Ultra 94
4 Coors Light 102
5 Sam Adams Light 119
6 Budweiser Select 99
7 Busch Light 95
8 Bud Light 110
9 Natural Light 95
10 Keystone Light 104

Want to know how the hot dogs rank? Then


Rank Product Style Cost Calories Fat (g) Sat. Fat (g) Sodium (mg)
1 Hewbrew National Kosher Beef Franks beef $0.51 150 14 6 420
2 Nathan's Famous Skinless Beef Franks beef $0.48 170 15 6 470

Usually Bud Light here and absolutely NO hot dogs. Not a fan of those.

Hebrew national low fat hot dogs are only 50 calories with 1.5g fat. They are quite good.

Okay, with the exception of Sam Adams Light, all the above beers taste like piss water. (what does piss water taste like? I don't know, but imagine something like those beers) I can handle Miller High Life (the champagne of beers), but I am far too much of a beer snob. I'll take the calories over this stuff.

Yves veggie has a soy hot dog that's only 50 calories! I'm a weirdo, I'd rather have a fake hot dog and a real beer than a beef hot dog and a lite beer!

I'm not a hot dog fan either. I saw a poster in my 7th grade science class that ended it all for me. It broke down what weent into hot dogs. I prefer Smart Dogs and I love, love, love Morning Star Farm's corn dogs. They rock. I'd like to see a taste break down of tofu dogs.

I have never liked the taste of light beers. I'd rather have one really great beer than several mediocre beers.

I drink Miller Lite, it only has one more calorie than Busch Light. It is more expensive, but I believe you get what you pay for. My ex drank Busch and now it just makes me ill. Although (an I'm from WI, so I'm an *expert*) - you could do a lot worse than Busch! Nobody ever lists Mic Golden Light. That's my ulitimate favorite, but I guess they don't serve that everywhere (not even everywhere in MN).

I am seriously going to drink Busch Light over Miller Light from now on- plus it is cheaper- and hey, if it ranks that high for taste I can take a few jabs for cheap beer!
