Philadelphia sports fans are alive and well these days, with the Eagles soaring to a 5-0 record, the Sixers a week away from what appears to be a promising season, and the Phillies winning a playoff series for the first time in over a decade.
On Friday, the Phillies will host Game 3 of the National League Division Series against the Atlanta Braves; fans who attend the game – or any future playoff games – can enjoy three new fall-inspired concessions at Citizens Bank Park.
Here's a look at what the new food added by Aramark, which runs the concessions at the ballpark.
Move over, Wawa. There's a new gobbler in town. Fans can order a sandwich made with freshly carved turkey, drizzled with gravy and topped with stuffing and cranberry sage aioli on a piece of long roll bread. The gobbler, sold in section 139, costs $14.99.
Crab fries from Chickie's and Pete's are a staple at each of the three stadiums at the Sports Complex. The crinkle-cut french fries seasoned in crab spices with a side of creamy cheese dipping sauce are a fan favorite.
The Philly restaurant chain will offer a sweet variation at its concession stand in section 102 during the playoffs. The Crabby Sweets are sweet potato fries that come with a cinnamon maple dipping sauce. Fans can get a side of cheese dipping sauce, too. The fries cost $12.99
Ice cream and baseball games go hand-in-hand. This fall, fans can order a s'more milkshake reminiscent of nights by the campfire. The milkshakes are made with hand-spun Richman's vanilla ice cream, graham crackers, chocolate syrup and a marshmallow. They are available at Boardwalk Eats, located in section 142, for $8.99.
During the regular season, Aramark added new menu items at Citizens Bank Park, including Manco & Manco Pizza, sold in 12-inch personal pies. Colbie's Southern Kissed Chicken and a new PBJ burger from Boardwalk Eats also were sold for the first time.
The Phillies series starts in Atlanta at 1:07 p.m. Tuesday and shifts to Philadelphia on Friday, at a time to be determined. If necessary, Game 4 will be played in Philly on Saturday. The Phillies went 8-11 against the defending World Series champs during the regular season.
