Over the last decade, we've seen seltzer transition from a bubbly beverage beloved by a few to an all-out phenomenon. From the popularity of brands like LaCroix, Spindrift, and Waterloo to boozy spiked seltzers sweeping the nation, sparkling waters now have an ever-expanding section of the drink shelves in grocery stores. And now, some brands are pushing the envelope on what flavors a seltzer can be. After pickle seltzer, we thought we'd seen it all, but now 7-Eleven has a collaboration with Miracle Seltzer that has left us truly speechless. Behold: the world's first hot dog-flavored seltzer.

7-Eleven Introduces New Big Bite Hot Dog Sparkling Water



In collaboration with Miracle Seltzer—which is somewhere between a hype-y apparel brand, an art project, and a seltzer company—7-Eleven is introducing four new flavors of 7-Select sparkling waters to its convenience stores. The first three—Lemon Lime, Green Apple, and Sweet Orange—are child's play compared to the fourth. Inspired by 7-Eleven's best-selling Big Bite Hot Dog (yes, the ones on the rollers), the sparkling water is flavored like the iconic convenience store hot dog—ketchup and mustard included.

Now we've had hot dogs served a million ways, driven a car shaped like a hot dog, and even drank through a hot dog straw—but this is taking the hot dog to places it's never been before: the beverage aisle. Technically, that's not true, since a Texas-based brewery made seltzer with leftover hot dog water back in 2022. But it's the first time a non-alcoholic hot dog-flavored drink is coming to the market.

According to a press release, "Gone are the days of alternating bites of a hot dog with sips of a beverage," because "now those on the go can swap the bun for bubbles." We'll let that sentence sink in for a moment.

We're told that more details on the shocking flavor's availability will be revealed on April 1, which leads us cynics to believe that it may all be an April Fools ruse. Frankly speaking, we kind of hope it's not (sorry!). But if it isn't, we're left with one question—is this seltzer technically a sandwich?
