“As the most iconic brand, we’re going where other hot dogs can’t. We’re committed to getting our new hot dog in everyone’s hands – and going to great lengths to do this. We knew that was a job for more than just our existing Wienermobile,” said head of marketing at Oscar Mayer, Greg Guidotti in the release. “So we’ve expanded our Oscar Mayer fleet, ensuring every American can taste the new recipe because we believe everyone deserves a better hot dog.”

According to Oscar Mayer, the new WienerDrone and WienerCycle are fully equipped vehicles specifically built to deliver the new Oscar Mayer hot dogs. The new hot dogs include no nitrates and nitrites and no artificial preservatives.

The WienerDrone is the first unmanned hot dog-carrying aircraft designed for remote location delivery.

The WienerCycle is a three-wheeled moped, ideal for tricky urban deliveries, traveling on land with a sidecar that doubles as a hot dog warming station.

Oscar Mayer officials said the WienerFleet expansion shows how Oscar Mayer is going to great lengths “for the love of hot dogs,” not only with its new hot dog recipe, but in connecting with consumers over the key grilling season, and getting a better dog in consumers’ hands.
