How does a $200 hot dog compare to a $10 one? Kathie Lee and Hoda investigate

Remember when that greedy dude caught heat for trying to charge tourists $30 for a standard NYC hot dog? Well, now, the folks at Hebrew National have created a $200 hot dog. But let’s be honest, this is a whole different ball game. They add crazy high-end ingredients like morel mushrooms, white truffle oil and of course, edible gold flakes.

It’s the perfect dog for the one percent.

The rest of us will be perfectly happy with the $10 version, featuring portobello mushrooms, white truffle-infused olive oil …and hold the gold please! We’ll save that for our earrings.

Here, Hebrew National shares both recipes so if you happen to have some extra money laying around, you can do a taste test for yourself!
