#1 in Corn Dogs

In our quest to continuously add to our repertoire of great quality and delicious- tasting products for the whole family, Foster Farms acquired Alabama-based Griffith Foods to expand our production and distribution of corn dogs—an American classic! Today, we produce the best-selling corn dogs and mini-corn dogs in the United States. Plump, juicy franks dipped in honey-crunchy batter and other great flavor twists like chili-flavored franks with cheese—fun food never tasted so good!
