I'm not normally a corn dog type of gal, but tell me something is "limited edition" and I will all over that like a bad habit. Shake Shack only sells these bad boys on Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day (I think?), so the only time to catch them is a few select days a year.
These are dipped and fried to order, so expect to wait a little bit to bite into this corn dog, unless you're looking for a nice char on your tongue for the day, haha. The outer coating was thinner than I expected but pretty good. The hot dog (Vienna beef) was pretty salty which got sort of gross after a while. The corn relish on the side was really tasty, I wish we had more of that. Although it's sort of hard to imagine eating the relish on the corn dog, given the rough texture of the corn relish - it doesn't exactly stick to things well like mustard or ketchup would. I happily ate it on the side though.
I also enjoyed a small cup of that day's custard, Chocolate chip cookie dough. It came complete with a flag cone - actually I don't know if it was just for 4th of July weekend or their cones are always that way, haha.
Overall, it definitely felt like summer when I was eating these, and patriotic thanks to the cone wrapper. I'm glad I got a chance to try the oft-mentioned Shake Shack corn dog!
