Best Baseball Stadium Snacks

Apr 09, 2014

Baseball season is back! There's no better warm-weather sporting event than heading to the ballpark for a baseball game when the sun is shining. And one of the best parts of taking in a game is all the amazing food they serve. So what are some of the best snacks you can snag at the stadium?

5. Popcorn

Popcorn ranks so low only because it is already famous for something else: movie snacks. But that doesn't mean it isn't a stadium staple. A common sight is vendors walking the aisles shouting at the top of their lungs, asking people if they want popcorn. Pairs nicely with a soda and makes for a long-term snack, which is good for a lengthy ball game.

4. Peanuts

Peanuts are right behind popcorn in seat-ready foodstuffs. Most stadiums keep the hot food on the concourse, but peanuts and popcorn are generally distributed by vendors walking up and down the aisles. There's a guy at Safeco field in Seattle who will fling a bag of peanuts across several sections to avoid making the walk over, while other fans pass the funds along for payment. Salty, delicious, and the shells make a heck of a mess, peanuts is a classic stadium food that has been around for a log time and doesn't look to be leaving. It's even mentioned in the classic baseball tune, Take Me Out to the Ball Game, which has been around since 1908 and is commonly sung in the seventh-inning stretch, or the time between the top and bottom og the seventh inning. 

3. Nachos

Sloppy, cheesy and stuffed with sodium, nachos check all the boxes when it comes to best stadium foods. Some stadiums have now started serving super nachos, where they dish up this delicious treat inside a baseball helmet so you can eat your greasy snack and have a stadium souvenir for later. 

2. Ice cream

Nothing like a cool treat on a hot day. Whether it's a straight cone, sundae, or some custom ice cream creation the team concocts, ice cream is a stadium favorite and a sweet alternative to the usual savory stadium fare. This year the Chicago White Sox have unveiled their latest ice cream offering, a 12-scoop, three-pound heaping helping of sundae served in a White Sox souvenir helmet. The "snack" is supposed to feed several but I bet a few of you could scarf the whole thing down on your own.

1. Hot dog

Was there ever any doubt? The hotdog is the quintessential stadium snack. Slathered in ketchup, mustard and relish and a million other toppings, the hotdog is as American as apple pie and, well, baseball itself. The Dodger Dog, pictured above is a famous iteration of this baseball stadium staple served at L.A. Dodger games, but every squad has its own take on this classic culinary treat. 

Have your say!

What's your favorite thing to eat at the ballpark? Do you agree hotdog is the best? Should pizza have made the cut? Tell us what you think in the comments section below.

It's hilarious how people compare these two. Ronaldo is all about that hard work and when it comes to who is the best player in the world, it's undoubtedly him But then again, Leo Messi is a touch of god's perfection. We have to understand, we'll never ever see a player like him. Ronaldo is only the best player in the world because Leo Messi is from another planet. #TeamMESSI ♥
