Crazy New Concessions at the Ballpark

Those sub-.500 Rangers sure know how to keep our attention. The riveting injury reports. The dramatic late-inning losses. The... clinically insane concessions. Yep, the mad scientists are back at it with a glorious new mix of larger-than-life foodstuffs. And since he’s got some free time on his hands, we asked Prince Fielder* to chime in.

*Not really. But he would’ve totally said these things.

Poutine Nachos

Poutine Nachos

What it is: They’re a literal bucketful of housemade potato chips covered in gravy, bacon, cheese, jalapeños and your choice of brisket or chicken.
Fielder’s take: “Sometimes you just need something to snack on in the dugout that’s not sunflower seeds, you know?”

Kaboom Kabob

Kaboom Kabob

What it is: A hefty 24-inch skewer of chicken and seasoned veggies laid atop a bed of rice.
Fielder’s take: “Lots of protein here makes for a good between-innings meal. I confused it for my bat once. Still got a double. Wash and I had a good laugh.”

The Tanaco

The Tanaco

What it is: Some would call this a taco. Others would call it 24 inches of personal challenge loaded with ground beef, chicken and all the usual toppings.
Fielder’s take: “I like to enlist a friend to help with this one. Derek Holland’s usually a good bet.”

Korean Bulgogi Beef Sandwich

Korean Bulgogi Beef Sandwich

What it is: Take some grilled, marinated beef, top it with spicy slaw and cucumbers, then stuff all that into a pita. Pretty sure that’s the Korean part.
Fielder’s take: “Nothing beats a good sandwich during the seventh-inning stretch. Remember to lift with your legs.”

Bacon Waffle on a Stick

Bacon Waffle on a Stick

What it is: It’s a balanced breakfast (you’ve got your protein, your carbs) that’s been speared by a stick and mobilized for in-bleacher consumption.
Fielder’s take: “You guys: it’s bacon, inside a waffle, on a stick. Detroit’s got nothing on us. Except more wins and a division lead. Still, though: bacon waffle.”
