Can you tell the difference between these two coneys?

Michelle Oliver puts Detroiters up to the ultimate coney challenge

When you talk hot dogs in Detroit you've got to think coneys, and that means one of two things... you're either an American or you're a Lafayette. The rivalry between these two coney islands has a rich history. American Coney Island was started 1917 by Gust Keros and shortly after his brother opened Lafayette Coney Island next door using a different recipe... but can you tell the difference? Michelle Oliver hit the streets of Detroit to put people to the ultimate coney challenge - a blind taste test to see if they could tell the difference.
