Hot dog and peanut enthusiasts alike had a chance Tuesday to relish their passions.

Country Club resident Lee Frank proudly received a weenie whistle.

Oscar Mayer’s famous Wienermobile and Planter’s “NUTmobile” made debuts at Main Street at Lakewood Ranch, giving visitors a chance to snap pictures and learn facts about the vehicles.

For example, the Wienermobile is 27 feet — or 60 hot dogs — long.

Wienermobile driver Dominic Ricci of Milwaukee, who travels with co-driver Elise Johnson, of Austin, Texas, gave Country Club at Lakewood Ranch resident Lee Frank a weenie whistle after she got a sneak peak inside the Wienermobile.

“I’m thrilled,” Frank said, noting she’s seen the Wienermobile on the road, but never up close before.
