After reading about the new giant two-pound Pepperoni Roll coming to Appalachian Power Park this season (http://bit.ly/10ABEeN), it made me wonder what other calorie-packed stadium eats you could munch on at ballparks around the country.
Better loosen your belt if you want to sink your teeth into one of these over-the-top indulgences …
- Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field – “Da Burger Triple Play” pork burger is a 3-pound pork patty topped with cheddar cheese, bacon, pulled pork and barbecue sauce, but it also packs an estimated 1,100 calories, 65 grams of fat, 2,700 milligrams of sodium and 60 grams of carbohydrates.
- New York Yankees and Yankee Stadium – Moe’s Southwest Grill’s “Billy Barou Nachos” – piled high with ground beef, white cheese sauce, salsa, jalapenos, olives, guacamole and sour cream – weighs in at an estimated 1,380 calories, 90 grams of fat, 3,196 milligrams of sodium and 112 grams of carbohydrates.
- Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium – “The Victory Knot,” a mega-sized pretzel designed to feed four people, is two pounds of dough that fits in a full-size pizza box and is served with chipotle honey mustard, sweet cinnamon crème and beer cheese for dipping. Here’s the twist, though. It’s an estimated 3,080 calories, 82 grams of fat, 15 grams of saturated fat, 6,550 milligrams of sodium and 500 grams of carbohydrates.
- Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field – The big whopper on this menu is “The Fat Darrell,” a jumbo sandwich consisting of chicken fingers, French fries, mozzarella sticks and marinara sauce. According to Paula Deen’s Fat Darrell recipe, there are 2,166 calories, 75 grams of fat, 27 grams of saturated fat, 3,500 milligrams of sodium and 220 grams of carbohydrates in this baby.
- Atlanta Braves at Turner Field – “The Dixie Dog,” a half-pound frankfurter that’s flash-fried and topped with pulled pork barbecue, low-country mustard barbecue sauce, pickles and creamy southern slaw, has about 1,277 calories, 98 grams of fat and 2,280 milligrams of sodium.
But nosh with caution. These eats may take you out AT the ballpark!
