Here is wonderful idea for your little kiddies and those sweet little hands of theirs; brought to you by the genius mind of my brother in law, Will... Take a cold hot dog straight from the package and slice four to six strips into the lower 3/4 of the hot dog, creating "octopus tentacles"! Then throw them into a pot and boil them as normal... When the hot dogs are cooking in the boiling water, the "tentacles" will curl upwards, resulting in what looks to be a little octopus! Hence the name OctaDogs! These are wonderful snacks or a great addition to a meal, Sebastian will usually eats at least two in a single sitting! Thanks Will!
