Did you know that Fletcher’s Original Corny Dogs has vaudeville beginnings? And that they’ve had the same recipe since 1942? But they didn’t add ketchup until 1994?

Listen as GG and Amber Fletcher, the mother-daughter duo currently running the corny dog legacy, talk about the fun history of this iconic Texas tradition, how they’ve weathered the pandemic, and what big plans they have for the future. Reporter Sarah Blaskovich then talks about 10 new fried foods to check out at the State Fair of Texas this year.

Sarah, host Erin Booke, and new producer Julie Fisk also discuss other important food topics like the 5-Second Rule, Dr. Oz’s grocery shopping skills, and healthy lunch ideas.
