After a five-year hiatus, A&W Canada is bringing back the fan-favourite Whistle Dog for a limited time, while supplies last.
The brand’s classic Whistle Dog features a hot dog nested in a toasted bun with relish, real cheddar cheese, and bacon.
Since its removal from the menu in 2017, fans of the Whistle Dog have started petitions, written songs, rallied support on the radio, and filled up A&W’s comment sections on social media, all in an effort to bring the fan-favourite hot dog back.
In fact, one passionate fan in Manitoba went out of his way to comment on every single A&W Instagram post since 2021 saying, “Bring back the Whistle Dog!”
To celebrate its return, A&W Canada is releasing “Bring Back the Whistle Dog”, a hot dog-umentary about the cult menu item and the lengths its diehard fans have gone through to get it back.
While Canadians can get their hands on a Whistle Dog starting on July 25, 2022, they’ll have to wait until August 12 to watch the dog-umentary, which will be accessible via A&W’s social channels and YouTube.
