Even if you can't be at Citi Field on July 16th to see your favorites at the 2013 All-Star Game, you can feel like you're at the game with these classic ballpark eats.
It has been decades since ball players gave up chewing tobacco for sunflower seeds. You can go one better by serving a heaping bowl of roasted pumpkin seeds. Not only are they full of potassium and zinc, but you can eat the whole seed, so no spitting!
Nothing says 'summer' like the sweet-tart taste of lemonade. And nothing says 'baseball' like, uh, pink. Squeeze up a pitcher of this kid-favorite concession and you'll have a cooler crowd in minutes.
Between their fresh-baked-bread smell and the fact that kids love to help you punch and twirl the dough, these big soft pretzels are a home run. Substitute the salt for cinnamon-sugar if you'd prefer a sweet treat.
Hot dogs and baseball are as classic a combination as it gets. But you can call your lunch up to the majors with this bacon-wrapped street vendor favorite, also known as the Danger Dog.
These thick-cut, savory fries are a big hit at ballparks around the league. If you want to get the real Citi Field experience, serve them in a colorful Chinese to-go box.
Add some spanish peanuts to this super easy caramel corn recipe and you've got yourself a batch of copycat Cracker Jack so good, your kids won't care if they ever go back to the original.
No need to wait for the ice cream guy to make it your section so you can flag him down. Make these dreamy frozen treats from scratch right in your own kitchen.
This is the one people wait in line for all game long. And while you probably won't be able to match the thickness of the Shake Shack stand at Citi Field (their secret is frozen custard), you can still cool off with a creamy classic chocolate milkshake.
