A few new menu items will be stepping to the plate at the home of the Chicago White Sox, U.S. Cellular Field, for the 2014 baseball season.
New concession choices at the field include bacon-on-a-stick, pork chop sandwiches, adobe mango chicken sausages and a three-pound banana split ice cream sundae.
The bacon-on-a-stick offering features “thick cut, premium Danish bacon seasoned with black pepper,” and the pork chop sandwich is equipped with a “seasoned, boneless pork chop served with grilled onions on a corn-dusted Kaiser roll.”
Opening Day at U.S. Cellular is set for March 31.
"Providing fans with the best experience possible includes offering a variety of the best ballpark food," Brooks Boyer, White Sox senior vice president of sales and marketing, said in a press release. "We are excited to improve our food offerings at U.S. Cellular Field to offer new, fresh food items to White Sox fans."
The sundae, which features 12 scoops and comes in a full-size batting helmet, will cost $17.
According to the description, the Banana Split Sundae Helmet is “an eye-popping three-pound banana split features four scoops of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream” that comes “drizzled with luscious caramel and strawberry sauces and chocolate syrup then topped with whipped cream and cherries.”
The calorie count for the sundae is unclear at this time.
"It should feed a lot of people, and it comes in a hardy, helmet container that we think people will go home with and remember their time at the ballpark," Boyer told ESPN. "I'm sure a couple fans are going to try to crush it alone, but we're hoping it's for a family. That being said, we'll have something special for the first person who takes it down by themselves."
