Exciting new food items at Phillies games this year

Move over peanuts and Cracker Jacks, there’s some new ballpark food in town.

Today, Aramark, the beverage and food partner of the Phillies, announced a whole host of new food items that will be available this season across their portfolio of eight MLB teams. Among the list were four new items at Citizens Bank Park.

Jane Dough Cookie Dough
Available at Minute Maid Park, Rogers Centre and Citizens Bank Park this season will be gourmet, safe-to-eat, flavored cookie dough that is sure to be the subject of many Instagram posts throughout the year. While the information was posted today in their press release, this was posted last September, indicating the cookie dough stand will be in section 110.

Smoked Brisket Taco Trio

A non-traditional ballpark snack, this taco trio will include house-smoked brisket topped with jalapenos, cilantro crema, queso fresco and sliced radishes, in corn tortillas.

Crispy Chicken Sandwich

Fried chicken topped with tomato bacon jam, roasted shaved Brussels sprouts and Vermont white cheddar cheese, on a brioche bun.

Vegan Cauliflower Cheesesteak

Roasted cauliflower, poblano peppers, onions, vegan cheese sauce and vegan roll.

In addition to the new food items, in-seat vendors will also accept credit cards, in addition to cash. Just make sure you know everyone in your row so you feel comfortable passing your credit card down the line of 10 strangers.

Will you try any of these new items?

Fan injured by Phillie Phanatic's hot dog cannon during game

Fan injured by Phillie Phanatic's hot dog cannon during game

This is taking food delivery a bit too far.

A woman suffered facial injuries when the Phillie Phanatic fired a hot dog into the crowd with his cannon during Monday night’s game at Citizens Bank Park.

“And then the next thing I know he shot it in our direction, and bam! It hit me like a ton of bricks. My glasses flew,” Kathy McVay, a Plymouth Meeting resident, told 6 ABC’s Sarah Bloomquist about the incident.

McVay said she went to a hospital and underwent a CAT scan to make sure that she didn't suffer a concussion.

“I have a small hematoma in my eye,” McVay said. “And mostly, it's going to get worse before it gets better. It's going to go down the side of my face.”

Per the report, the Phillies did reach out to McVay to apologize and “the Phanatic feels terrible about what happened” (although we’re not exactly sure how he explained that sentiment).

To her credit, McVay understands the ridiculous nature of her injury and is taking it all in stride.

“It gives people a good laugh, and if that makes somebody chuckle, then that's fine,” she said.

Now that people know she’s OK, McVay can bank on people getting a decent laugh out of this one.

Rocky and Adonis return to Philadelphia in new Creed II trailer

The latest chapter in the Rocky Balboa saga is coming to theatres this Thanksgiving and the trailer for it dropped this morning.

Creed II picks up with Michael B. Jordan reprising his role as Apollo Creed's son, Adonis, coming to grips with fighting someone with the last name Drago — clearly a flashback to his father getting killed in the ring at the hands of Russian Ivan Drago.

Sly Stallone returns as the old and wise Rocky Balboa, dropping knowledge bombs instead of left hooks.

At least part of the movie takes place in Philadelphia, with a skyline shot showing up in the trailer. The first Creed movie had plenty of Philly flavor, so we're hoping we'll get a bit more in the sequel.
