Are you a baseball fan who loves to grab a hot dog at the ballpark? Some people say that no other hot dog tastes as good. As it happens, this season's attendees of Arizona Diamondbacks games will have the option of snacking on a new kind of dog: the Churro. The Churro Dog is a warm cinnamon churro inside a split-open, glazed chocolate Long John doughnut and topped with frozen yogurt, caramel and chocolate sauces. Calories? The estimated count is 1,117. The price will be $8.50, pretty much in line with the high prices of snack foods at stadiums.
This isn't the first hot dog gimmick offered at the Diamondbacks' stadium, called Chase Field. Last season, the D-Bat Dog appeared. The $25.00 "snack" is an 18-inch long corn dog stuffed with cheddar cheese, jalapeños and bacon, served with french fries.
Looks like sports franchises need to do whatever they can to fill stadium seats; some more than others. What do you think? Would you eat a Churro Dog or a D-Bat dog? I kind of hate to say it, but the photo above is looking pretty delicious to me.
