We’ve gone through some of the most intriguing items that have been announced in anticipation of the new year and have narrowed down the top choices.
What are some of the best and craziest ballpark foods that you can try across the country this season? Let’s have a look.
Bacon Donuts – Seattle Mariners
Donuts are good enough, but you top them with bacon bits, powdered sugar and some maple syrup? Now we’re talking. It’s going to be hard for anyone to turn these down.
Cheet-o-lote- Los Angeles Dodgers
If you’ve ever had Mexican street corn — known as elote — you know how delicious this snack can be. But when you coat the corn with Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, your taste buds will be in for a treat.
Triple B – Texas Rangers
No, Big Baller Brand does not have its own sandwich. Instead, the various breads come topped with bologna, brisket and bacon. That’s a killer combination.
Distillery Poutine – Toronto Blue Jays
Of course they have to have some poutine in Toronto. The kicker here is a wiskey-raisin gravy. Unique combination? Absolutely, but color me intrigued.
Loaded Mac ‘n Cheese – Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
You can never go wrong with mac-n-cheese, especially when you top it all off with bacon, onion rings and chicken.
Sound Seafood Lobster Roll – Seattle Mariners
Have you ever met a lobster roll you don’t like?
Drunken Barbacoa Nachos – Kansas City Royals
“Slow braised in Tank 7 beer, some orange juice for about 6 hours,” said John Woychick, executive chef for Aramark at Kauffman Stadium, via FOX 4 DC. “We shred them over top of our tri-colored chips here, some chipotle sour cream, pico de Gallo, charred corn, black beans and finish with some green onion.”
Clam Chowder Bread Bowl – Los Angeles Dodgers
It may not be the best food for a hot day, but as the weather cools off, you there’s a special place in your stomach for a quality bread bowl.
Jack’s Smoked Sausage Dog – Seattle Mariners
Take everything that make nachos great and toss it on a roll with some sausage? I’ll order that 10 times out of 10.
18-inch Pizza Slice – Chicago White Sox
One slice of pizza AS BIG AS MY BODY 😂🍕 This Spring Training, the @Dodgers & @WhiteSox have an 18-inch slice of pizza that has 25 pepperonis on every slice. PIZZA: https://t.co/5ykUgyxpK7 #abc15 pic.twitter.com/6LJh6fV5QW

No words necessary.
Asada Dog – Arizona Diamondbacks
It’s an 18-inch Schreiner’s hot dog in a telera roll covered with fries, queso blanco, carne asada, pico de gallo and guacamole. In the immortal words of Fat Bastard, “get in my belly!”
Toasted Grasshoppers – Seattle Mariners
These were an overwhelming success for the Mariners last season, so it’s no surprise that they are back on the menu. A common snack in areas of Mexico, the toasted grasshoppers are covered with garlic, lime juice and salt to give you the perfect bite fora day at the park.
Crème Brulee French Toast – Boston Red Sox
Who says there is no room for dessert?
Spec-Tater – Atlanta Braves
You can see a trend here. Any time you wrap something in bacon and add some cheese, it’s a success.
Dilly Dog – Texas Rangers
Okay. This one is a bit interesting. A hot dog inside of a pickle and then deep fried? It’s worth a shot. Dilly dilly!
