Minor League Food Options (Hardly “minor”)

Check out the third option … that’s some serious caloric intake:

1. Twinkie Dogs

The salty and sweet treat served at the Battle Creek Bombers’ minor league games in Michigan is gaining such attention from the media and fans, it’s clear Twinkies have found a new market. To assemble this insane creation, hot dogs are stuffed inside a Twinkie and topped off with the usual ketchup or mustard. For the ultimate experience, though, fans eat them with whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles with a maraschino cherry on top.

2. Bacos

The Baco, a taco served inside a bacon shell, will be served this summer at the Whitecaps games at Fifth Third Ballpark in Comstock Park, Mich. Expect taco trucks nationwide (and maybe even Taco Bell?) to catch up with this idea soon, because, really, who doesn’t love bacon?

3. The Fifth Third Burger

The Western Michigan Whitecaps fans bask in indulgence with their $20, 4,889-calorie, 4-pound specialty burger. It features five burgers (each weighs in at one third of a pound), topped with chili, cheese, chips, salsa, lettuce, and sour cream, all wedged between a giant sesame seed bun. While you’re there, you might as well order a side of the fried Mac and Jack Cheese Bites.

    I feel ‘preachy’ saying this and I know I’m stating the obvious, but how could anyone justify eating a ‘fifth third burger’ when 25,000 people die every day from hunger and hunger-related causes? We live in a crazy, crazy world.

    That sort of argument could be said about almost any discretionary spending. How can you just spending $10 on lunch versus $5 when you know that extra $5 could be enough to buy food for a week for a child in Africa? I guess the thing is we don’t live in a zero sum world.
