While the jury is still out on who devised the corn dog, one thing is certain: It is one of the most uniquely American foods. Native Americans relied heavily on cornmeal, while hot dogs are an American adaptation of a German classic. The combination of these ingredients resulted in the creation of an item that dominated a significant portion of grab-and-go food sales in the 20th century and thereby became a cultural icon. National Corn Dog Day is celebrated on March 18 to recognize the iconic stature of the corn dog.
