Purefoods Tender Juicy Hotdogs Overall Review
Kids can tell if a hotdog is delicious or not. I can too. I can tell if it’s a TJ hotdog. TJ hotdogs are known for being firm yet tender. It doesn’t have much of that artificial flavor that you get from cheap hotdogs. This is why it is also known for being a premium hotdog.
One thing I look for in a hotdog is the meaty flavor. Of course the Purefoods tender juicy hotdog has it. I wouldn’t be reviewing this if it wasn’t. Growing up with the TJ hotdogs was a treat. The TJ hotdogs doesn’t have that reddish coloring. I think they hardly ever tried to put any extenders in their hotdogs. I remember having a fieldtrip at their plant; it was amazing how the hotdogs were lined up and I just became hungry straight from Lunch.
Overall, this is my favorite hotdogs of all time. Basically because I grew up with it and that all things became simple when I ate my treat.
Purefoods TJ hotdogs Vs. Other Brands
There are other brands that can face up to the Tender Juicy Hotdogs of Purefoods. I can name some. But being a fan of the company and the product itself, I would go to Purefoods Hotdogs all the way. I don’t discount other brands, I too eat Swift Mighty Meaty Hotdogs and I experiment on Foot long hotdogs. In fact, I have a favorite Foot Long hotdog in Star.
The pricing also matters too. Purefoods Hotdogs are known to be a little more expensive than others. This is a premium product anyway. If I am tight at my budget, I would go for the next best thing. If not, I am TJ all the way. Now that I have a job – It’s always TJ hotdogs.
The Purefoods Tender Juicy Hotdogs Basketball Team
Part of me says that I will be a true Purefoods Tender Juicy Hotdogs Fan because of the Basketball team and the San Miguel Franchise as a whole. I still remember Jerry Codinera, the defese minister and Captain Lion heart Alvin Patrimonio. These guys were heroes in the 90’s. They were simply phenomenal – having won championships and individual awards. Today’s team is just as good with players like James Yap and Marc Pingris. Although the Team’s names have changed, they are still the same franchise.
