What’s Your Fave Nosh at Sporting Events?

On Monday, I shared my love of the ballpark (and summer) with you. From hot dogs to nachos to Cracker Jacks to popcorn, the list of ballpark treats is long, and most of them aren’t exactly good for you. Here at FBG, we’re all about everything in moderation, which means that no foods are “bad” foods or “good” foods; they’re just food. Granted, some have more nutritional benefits than others, but sometimes a girl just needs a frosty malt and a beer (this culinary combo probably wouldn’t get high marks on Top Chef, but I promise it’s divine on a humid, 85-degree night). And although I’m partial to baseball games, I know that plenty of other sports—football, soccer, basketball—have associated and similar tasty treats. So tell us…

  • Peanuts. The shelled kind. Not the gallery.
  • Ice cream. Sundaes, cones, frosty malts…I love them all.
  • Popcorn. It’s what’s poppin’.
  • Hot dogs. Sports=hot dogs. ‘Nuff said.
  • Nachos. Nitro queso es mi amigo.
  • All of it. I don’t discriminate.
  • None of it. I’m there for the sports, not the food, ladies!
  • Other. I’ll tell ya in the comments.

Feel free to elaborate below! —Jenn

    I sneak in my own stuff! Not only are the prices too high but I like to eat things I want to eat & not be limited to things I really don't want to eat. If I am going to splurge, it will be of the treat of my choice!!! 🙂

    I'm a vegetarian so I don't eat this one, but Safeco Field in Seattle (home of the Mariners) has an Ivar Dog that I've heard is delicious. Coleslaw and a piece of fish in a bun instead of the hotdog. Probably not super healthy, but a pretty unique ballpark food I think. 🙂

    Nice article. Well I usually interested to take peanuts, ice creams and popcorn because these are light to take.

    At KU football and basketball games, my favorite treat is a big strawberry limeade or lemonade. It's great for quenching the thirst after all that cheering!
