If there’s anything more traditionally American than baseball, it’s got to be the bad-for-you food we eat at the ballpark. I’m not just talking about an ordinary hot dog or cheeseburger. I’m talking about extreme eating.
Perhaps a study has found that arteries can’t clog at a ballgame, because TheDailyMeal.com has compiled a list of what must be the unhealthiest – but possibly most delicious – food, which, coincidentally, is all from ballparks. Most are Major League Baseball stadiums, but a few minor league ballparks and one soccer stadium also made the list.
On the list of the 15 Craziest Stadium Foods are four variations on hot dogs (one fried in funnel cake batter, another deep-fried and topped with deep-fried salami), three hamburgers (one weighing eight pounds, another served on a split Krispy Kreme doughnut instead of a traditional bun), and two variations on nachos (including a new version available at the new Miami Marlins Park, served in a helmet).
But most extreme? It’s a tossup between the deep-fried bull testicles served on a bed of French fries at the Colorado Rockies stadium, and the Triple Pork Poutine – cheese curds topped with gravy, pulled pork, bacon and sausage – available at Toronto’s soccer stadium.
