Legendary Concession Stand Food

By guest blogger Kelsey Bradshaw
Kelsey is a sophomore at the University of Oregon majoring in Journalism and Facebook (wait, that’s not a real major?!). Originally a track star from Medford, Oregon, she now enjoys going for runs with her friends and working out at Eugene Crossfit. She also enjoys visiting National Parks, playing in the snow, and hanging out at the beach…double points if they’re all at the same time.

Baseball, Hockey, Basketball…what do these things have in common?

Apart from millions of fans, nation anthems, and a circle(ish) shaped ball or puck, these sports all have some of the best—and weirdest—concession stand food you’ll ever have.

Take, for instance, the Meat Lover’s Hot Dog served at the Great American Ballpark, home to the Cincinnati Reds: a deep-fried quarter pound hot dog, which is then coated with chili and topped off with pepper jack cheese and fried salami.

If you’re up for a challenge, the next thing on your ‘To Eat’ list is the Big Boomer, offered at the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Texas. Measuring 24 inches long, it weighs in at a full pound and is topped with spicy ketchup, jalapeño mustard, Baja relish, beef chili, melted cheese, and raw onions.  If hot dogs aren’t your thing, try the three-pound pretzel they also offer—so big it’s served in a pizza box.

The fun doesn’t stop there, though. The Miami Marlins stadium offers a helmet full of nachos with all of the toppings—salsa, jalapeños, chili, cheese, and green sauce. Wearing it after eating is not recommended.

While it's a staple of Canadian cuisine, poutine is not for the faint of stomach! Photo by Ken Yu.

If these all sound a little tame, stop by the Louisiana Superdome and try alligator sausage or jambalaya.  Or, if your stomach is up for it, try the Rocky Mountain Oysters that Coors Field in Denver offers. These deceivingly named “oysters” are not of the seafood variety, but rather deep-fried bull testicles, served with fries and dipping sauce.

Canadian Hockey fans have it really good, however; many of their stadiums sell poutine, or fries covered with cheese curds and gravy. The Toronto Maple Leafs’ concessions include not only poutine, but hot dogs coated with the heart-stopping concoction, as well as bacon-wrapped hot dogs. But BMO Field belonging to the Toronto FC Major League Soccer team takes the cake with the Triple Pork Poutine: the typical fries, cheese curds, and gravy, then followed with pulled pork, bacon, and sausage.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten at concession stands? Would you ever try any of these?
