Concession Food Item of the Week: The Boomstick at Globe Life Park in Arlington
Last week in our series highlighting the finest* (*deadliest) items at concession stands nationwide, we gave praise to The Beast at Miller Park. While this bacon wrapped hot dog demon was indeed of note, it is but a petty appetizer compared to this week's offering: The Boomstick.
WHAT DO THEY CALL THIS WITCHCRAFT?: The Boomstick
WHAT COMPRISES SUCH A THING?: Hot dog, smothered in chili, nacho cheese, caramelized onions and jalapeños on top of a massive potato bun (also includes a side of fries, if you're still alive to eat them).
WAIT, SERIOUSLY?: Yes.
WHO HATH WROUGHT THIS MONSTROSITY: Globe Life Park in Arlington, home of the Texas Rangers.
HOW MANY CALORIES WE TALKIN’?: Estimated around 3,300 calories.
HOW MASSIVE IS THIS WORK OF SHEER AND UTTER GENIUS?: 2 feet, weighs roughly 3 pounds. Is that big enough for you?
AND HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?: $26.
Known enemies: Tums, healthy lifestyle choices.
