When Texas Rangers ticketholders spot fans lugging a 1-pound bag of Cheetos, with the top cut off, filled with brisket, nacho cheese, sour cream and jalapeños during the post season, know one thing: Concessionaires do not recommend it as a one-person meal.
"The bag's so big, once you add all those other toppings in it, it's hard to carry it," says Casey Rapp, general manager for Delaware North Sportservice at Globe Life Park.
The 1-pound bag of loaded Cheetos comes in a carrying box, perhaps so your heaviest lifting can be saved for fork to face motions.
The giant bag of Cheetos is one of four new Globe Life Park foods for the postseason. Many are oversized, perfect for those needing "bigger in Texas" brags. They new items join a roster of ballpark belt busters such as the 24-inch hot dog called the Boomstick, tater tot nachos and the don't-try-this-at-home bacon cotton candy.
Here's a look at the newest concessions coming to Globe Life Park in the postseason.
Inside Out Hot Dog
$26, available at sections 22, 29 and 48
Take the amount of meat in the 24-inch Boomstick -- 1 pound -- and condense it into an 8-inch-long dog and you get the Inside Out Hot Dog. This thing is 3 inches around, almost like a log of salami.
Concessionaires cut out the center, wrap it in bacon and serve it as a side item. The existing 8-inch-by-3-inch dog is topped with mashed potatoes, mac and cheese and choice of brisket, shredded chicken, taco meat or chili. It comes with a pretzel roll.
Get extra napkins.
Sweet Spot Cotton Candy Dog
$10, available at sections 22 and 48
Your typical salty hot dog gets a dose of sweet here. Concessionaires took yellow mustard, infused it with blue cotton candy and ended up with sweet cotton-candy mustard in relish green. For "looks and taste," Rapp says, the 'dog is topped with a few fluffs of cotton candy.
Back to the green mustard, though. Why? "When you first look at it, because that mustard is green, it's that whole green eggs and ham thing," Rapp says. "But as soon as you taste it, you'll definitely want to eat the whole thing." We expect it to be popular with kids.
Elvis Jabberdog and the Elvis Jabberdog Junior
$26 for the big one, available at section 29; $13 for the Junior, available at section 41
This "dog" isn't a dog at all. The Elvis Jabberdog, both junior and not, starts with a brownie that's rolled in Rice Krispie treats, dipped in funnel cake batter and fried. It's meant to look like a corny dog, but -- surprise! -- it's dessert.
The J-Dog can come with whipped cream and chocolate sauce on top.
The large one is 24 inches long. The smaller is a (teeny?) 12 inches.
1-pound Top-n-Go Cheetos
$26, available at sections 19, 29, 41 and 235
Inspired by an existing menu item, Walking Fritos, the Rangers' concessions group is super-sizing it in the postseason. The 1-pound Top-n-Go Cheetos is a family-size bag of Cheetos, cut open and filled with cheese, meat, sour cream and jalapeños.
You should take Rapp's advice and eat this one with a fork. And four friends.
Concessionaires at Globe Life Park are dreaming up new menu items as the Rangers progress.
"There may be more tricks up our sleeve as we continue to move into the postseason," Rapp says.
