Following a slew of well-known product brands such as Burger King, Axe, Snickers, Milky Way, and Slim Jim, the American meat and cold cut manufacturer Oscar Mayer has also jumped on the dogecoin bandwagon. Oscar Mayer, like Axe, has created a dogecoin-centric product and is auctioning off a “10-pack of weenies” featuring the famous Shiba Inu.
Weenies with a Doge theme, sold in a pack of ten.
Oscar Mayer is a well-known hot dog and cold cuts brand because the Kraft Heinz-owned company has been in business for many years. In fact, the Mayer brothers began making bratwurst, liverwurst, and weisswurst in 1883. The Chicago-based company’s official Twitter account has recently been tweeting about the infamous crypto-asset dogecoin (DOGE).
The company has joined a slew of well-known brands in capitalizing on the dogecoin craze. Axe recently released a limited edition Dogecan “crypto scented” body spray, and a few Burger King locations in Brazil recently released a dogecoin-themed dog biscuit for pets.
Oscar Mayer, the hot dog company, has also created a dogecoin-centric product and is auctioning off a 10-pack of hot dogs with the Shiba Inu image. According to Oscar Mayer, the package also includes the cash equivalent of 20,000 DOGE, and there is only one available.
On Friday, August 6, 2021, the 10-pack of DOGE-themed hot dogs currently has a bid of around $13,100. According to Oscar Mayer, the dogecoin-centric pack of hot dogs is extremely limited because the company only made one.
According to the company’s Twitter account, the proceeds from the Ebay auction will be donated to feedingamerica.org, a hunger-relief charity in the United States.
“We’re back, and this time there’s [$] even more [$] wow. This limited-edition Hot Doge Wieners pack now has a cash value of 20,000 DOGECOINS. However, only one pack exists,” Oscar Mayer tweeted on Thursday. The tweet also includes a link to an Ebay auction URL, indicating that there are two days left to bid on the 10-pack of Oscar Mayer wieners. The highest bid for the package of hot dogs is $13,100 at the time of writing. According to the eBay listing:
Very meat. So wiener. Much taste. Keep It Oscar, on your trip to the moon and help a good cause at the same time with this one-of-a-kind 10-pack of weenies. The winner of this auction won’t just receive the only pack of Oscar Mayer Hot Doge Wieners in the world, but also enough cash to purchase 20,000 dogecoins. All proceeds will be donated to Feeding America. Good luck and #DoOnlyGoodEveryday!
The Oscar Mayer Hot Doge Wiener package auction will end on August 8th, 2021, and the highest bidder will receive the 10-pack as well as the “cash equivalent to purchase twenty-thousand (20,000) dogecoin.” The dogecoin (DOGE) cash equivalent will be “based on the value of twenty-thousand (20,000) dogecoin at auction close,” according to the Ebay auction listing.
