It’s spring, and baseball is in the air. To celebrate, let’s look at some awesome ballpark foods that many have been waiting months to get their hands on.
1. The Houston Astros Chicken and Waffle Cone
This favorite comes complete with deep-fried chicken, stuffed into a waffle cone, smothered in mashed potatoes and honey-mustard dressing. Now…to eat with your hands, or a fork?
2. The Arkansas Travelers Bacon Cheesecake
If you’re a bacon lover, then you know bacon goes with absolutely everything. Don’t forget to put your choice of syrup on top.
3. The Timber Rattlers Big Mother Funnel Burger
Yes, please. This covers all food groups, including meat, dairy, produce, grease, sugar and bacon. Two funnel cakes surround this awesome-looking burger, loaded with cheese and powdered sugar.
4. The Memphis Redbirds Deep Fried Elvis
Two of the best foods ever combined—peanut butter and bananas—sit in this deep-fried hot dog bun. It’s lathered with honey and powdered sugar. Oh my.
5. The Timber Rattlers Grilled Bacon Cheeseburger
If you are afraid of meat or don’t do well with dairy, you might want to skip this one. However, for those who are in, this delicious-looking burger, stacked club-sandwich style, oozes with cheese and bacon.
6. The Norfolk Tides Salute to Pork
If pork is your thing, you can’t go wrong with pulled pork sliders, Cajun-smoked sausages, wings and a half-pound of Smithfield bacon. For the non-pork eater, you can have those yummy-looking chili cheese tots.
7. The Arizona Diamondbacks Churro Dog
This 1,100-calorie dessert consists of a giant Churro in a chocolate-glazed bun, topped with frozen yogurt, chocolate and caramel sauces. Of course, don’t forget to add the whipped cream and grab tons of napkins on your way back to the stands.
8. The Milwaukee Brewers Down Wisconsin Avenue Brat
Take an 18-inch brat sausage and top it with all things heavenly and fattening like gravy, cheese sauce, fries and sour cream. Don’t forget to add jalapenos and fried sauerkraut for tongue-tingling flavors. It feeds a family of four, or you can hog it all for yourself.
9. The Minnesota Twins College Daze Bloody Mary
Perfect for breakfast, you’ll find cold pizza and a little hair of the dog all mixed into one with this colorful Bloody Mary. The only caveat here is you have to eat the pizza before it mushes into soggy mess at the bottom of the cup. Or down the drink, then munch on the pizza to offset that killer quick buzz you just got.
10. The West Michigan Whitecaps Fifth Third Burger
This monstrosity consisting of five, one-third pound burgers should feed a whole row of people. Sandwiched between two sesame-seed buns, this burger comes loaded nacho style with chili, cheese sauce, sour cream and Fritos. Lettuce and tomato are either there for color, or just to add a splash of something healthy to this fantastic, 4,800-calorie creation.
After taking all of this in, you’re either starving, or you’re about to puke.
