AUSTIN, MINN. – Hormel Foods Corp. is launching two new varieties of chili designed as pour-over toppings for hot dogs.
An extension of the Hormel Chili brand, the new Chili Cheese Chili and Coney Island Chili are formulated to offer a thicker product to ensure it remains on hot dogs more consistently than other no-bean chili, Hormel said. The Chili Cheese Chili is a no-bean chili combined with American cheese, while the Coney Island Chili is a no-bean chili blended with mustard and onions.
“Consumers love chili dogs,” said Sarah Johnson, Hormel Chili brand manager. “While usage spikes in the summer, we know consumers enjoy chili dogs year-round. Our new pour-over chilis provide consumers a convenient, exciting and great tasting option to upgrade their daily meal routine.”
Hormel's Chili Cheese Chili and Coney Island Chili products are available in 15-oz cans and are priced between $2.09 and $2.79 at retail food stores across the country.
