Whistle Dog fans, rejoice!

Five years ago, A&W removed a fan-favourite item from their menu, and fans have been committed to getting it back ever since. 

Today, they can celebrate.

The fast food giant announced the return of their fan favourite ‘Whistle Dog’, a legacy menu item that was beloved for decades before disappearing from the menu in 2017.

The Whistle Dog is a hot dog nested in a toasted bun with relish, topped with real cheddar cheese, and bacon.

According to A&W, fans have started petitions, written songs, rallied support on the radio, and filled A&W’s comment sections on social media, since the Whistle Dog left the menu.

A&W listened, and now the Whistle Dog is returning to participating restaurants for a limited time. 

“Our guests have been very persistent,” says Amanda Wang, Director of National Promotions and Loyalty at A&W. 

“Given our new partnership with the Toronto Blue Jays, this felt like the perfect summer to bring back the Whistle Dog and give the people what they want.”
