‘Carlos Danger’ Brand of Weiners Enter the Food Market

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-08_e424cb933d.jpgAndrew Burton/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Anthony Weiner may be lagging in the race for New York City mayor, but he is winning in another area — hot dog marketing. The  delicious combination of Anthony Weiner’s name and his sexually suggestive Twitter antics were apparently too good to pass up for one Florida marketing man, who has joined forces with an Illinois hot dog company to create a hot dog brand called Carlos Danger Weiners, which he has incorporated into the company Carlos Danger LLC.

The company, whose website launched Friday, was created by Randall Richards, the CEO of Web Dominators LLC, a marketing firm in Orlando, in partnership with Thrushwood Farms Quality Meats, a family-owned business in Illinois. Hot dog orders can be placed through the website, and Richards said he had been in touch with several chains such as Walmart and Publix about selling the dogs.

Carlos Danger, for anyone who has not been following the saga of New York City Mayor Anthony Weiner, was the pseudonym the former congressman used during his online sexual chats with women.

Weiner declared a run for New York City mayor two years after he resigned from the U.S. House of Representatives, where he represented parts of Brooklyn and Queens, following revelations that he had been exchanging lewd photos with women over social media.

Richards said the idea for his company began percolating around three weeks ago, when new revelations emerged that Weiner had continued to send messages – under the name Carlos Danger — even after he had resigned from Congress and had begun planning his run for Big Apple mayor.

The price of the hot dogs range from roughly $80 for the “Super Tailgater Pack” (40 pounds of Carlos Danger), according to the website, to $4 for a four-pack.

According to Richards, the dogs are about twice the size of regular hot dogs.  He is planning to sell the hot dogs at college tailgate parties as well as online and at retail chains.

The Weiner campaign did not respond to ABC News’ requests for comment.
