The new concessions options at Globe Life Park in Arlington, home of the Major League Baseball’s Texas Rangers, certainly generated a buzz in media circles.
Delaware North Sportservice – the team’s food, beverage and retail partner at the ballpark – this week unveiled the “State Fare” stand, paying homage to the popular fried-food options at the Texas State Fair.
As has been the case in recent years with Delaware North’s team at the ballpark, the new options grabbed several headlines, including from ESPN.com, which published an article highlighting the innovative fried food items.
“The star of the stand will be the Fried S’mOreo, which is marshmallows breaded in graham cracker crust that is deep friend, mixed with two deep-friend Oreos on a skewer and drizzled with chocolate sauce and Cool Whip ($8). A chicken-fried corn on the cob fried in a buttermilk batter ($5) also will be an eye-catcher,” said Darren Rovell, a sports business reporter for ESPN.com, in his March 18 article.

Rangers fans can also look for more bacon-inspired menu items in 2015 – just one year after bacon-on-a-stick proved to be a winner at the ballpark.
Fox Sports writer Anthony Andro spoke glowingly of the new menu items in his article, “Rangers getting creative with eating options again.”
“The new bacon-inspired menu items are just a few of the new treats fans will get to sample this season,” Andro said. “Last year bacon was the new star at the park and this year the bacon cotton candy and bacon beer will be available.”
