As if there isn’t already enough happening in the world right now, the overlords at Disneyland took it upon themselves last week to pour gasoline on the internet by releasing this wild new culinary creation. To be fair, this isn’t the first time that this dish has existed on a menu but it is new to Disneyland which means it’s now available to around 19 million tourists each year.
The new addition to Disneyland menus is a panko-crusted corndog but the hotdog is inside of a pickle that’s inside of the panko crust and then it’s fried and served with peanut butter. I’ve never dipped a hotdog in peanut butter, nor have I dipped a corndog or pickle in peanut butter.
I don’t feel like I can fully pass judgment on this without trying it myself but others feel differently and this has become a polarizing topic on Twitter over the past weekend. There does seem to be consensus that peanut butter is an odd condiment choice but there must be some underlying reason for this and that’s honesty what has piqued my interest the most. Why peanut butter and not honey mustard or a special mixed sauce??

Fried pickle is a southernism. I dont know where the stick comes into it. But this corndog Frankenstein will rise up and kill it's master.

Fried pickle – okay
hotdog inside a pickle -jfc. I GUESS.
Corn dog but the hot is inside a pickle – what the fuck NO
put peanut butter on all that – STOP https://t.co/LDZWXurHkG

so I assume it is a monster fusion of the corn dog and the peanut butter/pickle sandwich (of which I just learned), with some deep fried pickle (a la Hooters) thrown in there. therefore I am now most confused by the hot dog.

Does the kind of pickle matter? Dill? Bread and Butter?
I’m game to eat the deep fried-pickle-hotdog monstrosity, but I can’t get past the peanut butter dip/pickle sandwich idea.

This will be available for purchase in Downtown Disney at Disneyland’s Blue Ribbon Corn Dogs Cart and the price tag is $13 which isn’t insane at all considering normal theme park prices.
Individually, I love all of these things. Hotdogs are great. Fried pickles are excellent. Corndogs/Panko are tasty. Peanut butter is a top-tier food. But all of these combined? I’m not sold on it.
