Consumer Reports Ranks Hot Dogs and Light Beer

2 Michelob Light 113
3 Michelob Ultra 94
4 Coors Light 102
5 Sam Adams Light 119

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!
