On Twitter, the meat company has been posting teasers of the soon-to-be launched snack.

“Say hello to the Oscar Mayer Ice Dog Sandwich. Flavored ice cream, made with our better hot dogs, sandwiched with spicy mustard. Do you want to try this?” read the caption of one of its photos.

Oscar Mayer partnered with New York City-based ice cream company Il Laboratorio Del Gelato to work out the details of transforming the classic hot dog into an ice cream. On the second week of August, this hot dog-flavored ice cream sandwich will be launched in New York City. It was not disclosed though whether this would be a limited edition snack or a permanent addition to the Oscar Mayer’s products.

To promote the Oscar Mayer Ice Dog Sandwich, the iconic Oscar Mayer Wiennermobile — which will be disguised as an ice cream truck — will roam around Manhattan to give free samples.

“Do you hear that song? That’s the sweet and delicious sound of Oscar Mayer Ice Dog Sandwich. Keep an eye and ear out for the @Wienermobile in NYC the week of 8/12 to get your taste buds in on this,” read the caption of the audio posted on Oscar Mayer’s Twitter account.
