With baseball season starting in a few weeks, the battle for the most ludicrous concession is well under way. The early winner looks to be the Texas Rangers, whose stadium will have two new gut-busting food stands:
“Just Bacon,” which will tap into last year’s bacon-on-a-stick phenomenon, will offer bacon cotton candy, bacon sunflower seeds, and also just hunks of candied bacon. No, the bacon trend will never die.
And then there’s the “State Fare” stand, which will pay homage to the State Fair of Texas by deep-frying everything in sight. Items include chicken-fried corn-on-the-cob and something called a “S’mOreo” — a graham-battered marshmallow between two fried Oreos that’s topped with Cool Whip and chocolate sauce. It just might be crazy enough to overshadow the real s’mores-flavored Oreos.
