Hmmm...I hadn't realized hot dogs could be in season or not. Are they not as fresh when they are out of season?

I'm surprised that I got ANY of them right - I have no idea about celebrating Labor Day... Cause I'm Canadian! LOL! Although I do have relatives in various parts of the U. S. & converse with them via emails. - Fun fact I learned was that hot dogs have "seasons" - Does the same apply to hamburgers, steaks, seafood (giant prawns/shrimps, trout & salmon) & veggies (zucchini, etc)? Because where I live we pretty BBQ them almost all year round. Thank god for "indoor" grills. - Anyway, thanks for a fun (learning) quiz, Yum!
