The West Michigan Whitecaps, the Tigers Single-A team in Comstock Park, MI held their fourth-annual food contest which determines Fifth Third Ballpark’s next extravagant food item. The winner for 2013: Baco – a taco with a bacon shell. It basically looks like a BLT minus the bread and mayonnaise (yay), so it’s a win-win for carb-counters, right?
The team received over 150 submissions from fans before narrowing it to the ten “best” options.
The Baco received 30% of the online votes, while second place with 27% of the vote went to The Bad Joke (a corn dog covered in cheese with two strips of duck bacon on a bun). Third place was, a virtual tie between Crash’s favorite snack, Rascal Chow (popcorn, bacon and Reeses) and Teeny Weenies (little hot dogs in mini helmets), with 9% each.
