The talent on the field won’t be the only thing that’s likely to be minor-league with the 2016 Atlanta Braves – some of the menu options in Turner Field’s final season will be, too.
The franchise is reaching into the minor league baseball bag of tricks with nearly a dozen new menu items that’ll be sure to expand your waistline. When I first saw these foods posted to the Braves’ Snapchat page, I thought it was some focus group-type situation where they invited a few special fans to try out new foods they were thinking of putting on the menu.

I was wrong. They’re offering all of these wacky dishes, but could you blame them? This year’s team is not expected to be good, so the franchise needs a draw to get fans to the games. If you’re not going to be distracted by the team on the field, why not try to eat your way around the stadium?
Here’s a look at the foods the team will sell to you this season, if you dare. Get ready to eat your feelings this season, guys.

If you can get past the name, there’s a lot to offer here. A footlong hot dog, mashed potatoes, pulled pork and macaroni and cheese. It looks like a banana split and it has an ice cream-themed name. See what they did there? (Twitter/@NikkiHobus)
