Concession Food Item of the Week: The Howdy Dog
Thanksgiving is upon us, which means you now actually have an excuse to be a gluttonous pig who watches football all day. When the Texas A&M Aggies host the LSU Tigers in their regular season finale tomorrow night, fans at the game can feast on this glorious creation instead of stuffing their faces full of dry turkey and green bean casserole.
WHAT DO THEY CALL THIS WITCHCRAFT?: The Howdy Dog
WHO HATH WROUGHT THIS MONSTROSITY?: Kyle Field, home of the Texas A&M Aggies.
WHAT COMPRISES SUCH A THING?: A chicken fried hot dog smothered in jalapeno and sausage gravy. And are those potato chips we spy on the bottom? Beige-colored food at its finest.
HOW MANY CALORIES WE TALKIN’?: Estimated at 700.
AND HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?: $12 for the hot dog, $6 for the Tums.
SHOULD I REALLY SPEND MY MONEY ON THIS?: Well…1) It’s a foot long. 2) It’s on a stick.
OKAY, I'M SOLD: Enjoy. That is, if you can find it.
