Winner will receive a family four pack from Cincinnati Zoo !

On Saturday we celebrate the birth of our country. Actually, because the Fourth of July is on a weekend, some are starting the celebration on Friday. The Fourth is a patriotic holiday, with fireworks, parades and lots of food. What could be more symbolic of the holiday than a hot dog fresh off the grill?


Today's Stumper is:
What's the estimated amount of hot dogs that will be eaten on July 4th?

1. 50 million
2. 100 million
3. 150 million




The answer is 3. 150 million

According to History.com, we consume approximately 150 million hot dogs on the Fourth of July. The website also says a third of the hot dogs produced in this country come from Iowa. Here are a couple of other tidbits from History.com: 63 percent of us will attend a fireworks display, and 66 percent of us display an American flag.
