Legacy Hot Dog Items: Dog Whistle

A&W has announced the return of one of its most iconic hot dogs, the Whistle Dog. This item left the A&W menu in 2017 after being a fan favorite for many years. Since then, customers have consistently requested returns on social media, in stores, and in other ways. This item is now back on the restaurant menu on July 25, 2022 for a limited time.

In addition to the return of the Whistle Dog, which is a large hot dog stuffed with bacon inside and then various condiments, A&W has announced a mini-documentary series focusing on the subject. This documentary is called “Bring Back the Whistle Dog” and will detail the meaning of the iconic hot dog. This documentary will be uploaded to the A&W YouTube channel on August 12, 2022.
