Veggie dog added to Fletcher's Corny Dog menu

There will be something new on the menu at the Fletcher’s Corny Dog stand when the State Fair of Texas begins this year – a veggie dog.

The company said it has seen a growing demand for a vegetarian option and the new dog-less corny dog tested well at a booth on Earth Day.

“We wanna make it clear that this is an addition to our menu, a way of grabbing the hand of a fan base that has been reaching out to us for some time,” Fletcher’s said on its Facebook page.

The traditional options – original, turkey and jalapeno and cheese – will be on the menu as usual when the fair opens on Sept. 25.
