Peruvian Avocado Commission Celebrates National Hot Dog Day With Free Avocado Topping For Baseball Fans

New York City baseball fans invited to upgrade hot dogs to “avodogs”

Washington D.C. July 24, 2015 – In celebration of National Hot Dog Day on July 23rd, the Peruvian Avocado Commission (PAC) treated New York baseball fans to a complimentary topping of fresh smashed avocados at a local major league ball game.

Although avocado may not be considered as classic a topping as mustard and relish (yet!), adding summer avocados to one of America’s favorite summertime foods proved enormously popular with fans – who devoured more than 600 fresh Peruvian Avocados during the game.

In addition to adding monumental flavor to a perennial favorite, Peruvian avocados also boast nearly 20 important vitamins and minerals and have no sodium or cholesterol.

Served with just a squeeze of lime or combined with other classic hot dog toppings such as onions and tomatoes, freshly sliced or smashed Avocados from Peru make an ideal hot dog topping.

“We look forward to seeing Avocados from Peru become an indispensable part of the all-American tradition of attending a major league baseball game,” said Xavier Equihua, President and CEO of PAC.

Peruvian avocados enjoy a season that, much like baseball, runs from May to September, earning them the nickname of “summer avocados.”
