I live less than 2 miles from the A&H plant and have been there several times;once for a Tour. I love the dogs and they are milder than Sabrett and Hebrew National. I prefer them as my tastes have changed and I now prefer a less spicy beef dog. Aldi’s now carries Hofmann’s German franks in a 2.65 lb package for 11.99. Glad I checked this site and am happy to see the forums working.
