Dodger Dogs now available ready-to-eat outside of a stadium

LOS ANGELES -- Get yer Dodger Dogs right here! The iconic hot dogs are being sold ready-to-eat for the first time outside a baseball stadium.

Hungry customers can buy two dogs for $3 at ampm convenience stores in the Los Angeles area, which began selling them last month.

The 10-inch dogs are grilled or steamed and overhang their bun.

The Dodger Dog was created in 1962 and is the top-selling food item at the stadium. The team says over 1.5 million dogs are sold at Dodger Stadium every season.

The packaged dogs are sold by Farmer John in Southern California grocery stores. The Dodger Dog is served at the team's spring training ballpark in Glendale, Arizona, and at its minor-league ballpark in Oklahoma City.

Last year, ampm opened its first branded convenience store inside Dodger Stadium.
