Discover the best of the "wurst" in Oscar Mayer's fleet of wiener-shaped vehicles

Welcome to the “Wiener’s” circle

The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile is undoubtedly one of the greatest feats of engineering and ingenuity to ever come out of the automotive industry. Few vehicles manage to capture the true spirit of America better than this wiener on wheels.

Since 1936, Hotdoggers (the name for drivers of the Wienermobile) have been delivering Oscar Mayer hot dogs to hungry people across the country behind the wheel of the Wienermobile. But let’s be “frank.” Times are changing, and if Oscar Mayer wants to keep up with the rapidly-advancing automotive world, then they need to constantly “ketchup.”

Fortunately, over the years Oscar Mayer has “mustard” a fleet of various hot dog-based vehicles. Oscar Mayer even recently added a WienerDrone to its collection, and that’s no “bologna.”

With the WienerDrone and WienerCycle making their debut this Fourth of July in Weiner, Arkansas, now seems like an opportune time to go over Oscar Mayer’s assortment of vehicles. That is why I “relish” the opportunity to present to you the Oscar Mayer WienerFleet.

Man, aren’t hot dog puns the “wurst?” I do have to say that I’m really “on a roll.”
