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.

Boys CAN cheerlead, but chances are they will be made fun of(not by me). Cheerleaders do A LOT of physical cheers and stunts, and we use ourselves instead of gear. A lot and most people underestimate cheerleaders for just some girls with poms and uniforms going "go team! yay!" because they have seen that in movies and tv. look up some cheer comp videos and still only some people with change their view of cheerleaders as girls on the sidelines doing uncreative cheers and stupid words to match. I hope this helped you understand a little bit more about cheerleading and cheerleaders. Peace Out!

All cheerleaders and coaches put A LOT of effort and time into making and practicing cheers. It is true that cheerleaders turn people and the players on...but it's much more than that. it's about having fun, teamwork, having some more fun, getting some exercise (uh that kinda makes it a sport right?), and great times with the other girls on your squad.   Rant over lol
