The Major League Baseball regular season is a grueling six-month, 162-game test that only rewards 10 teams with a chance to win the World Series in October. Additionally, only eight teams are permitted more than one playoff game after the wild-card round concludes.

I felt it was important to reward the remaining eight teams this season. In August, I ranked each new jersey in the NBA. Now, it’s time to raise the stakes: I’m ranking the top eight weirdest ballpark food. The playoff edition.

 

8. Pig Candy BLT (Cubs)

This is the surest bet of anything on the list to taste great. That’s why it ranks last on the list of weirdest food. It’s a BLT with candied bacon and the other regular fixings on a brioche bun. The only problem with this sandwich is its steep price of $12. If you want a drink and chips with it, be ready to shovel out another four dollars.

 

 

7. Chicken and Waffle Cone (Astros)

 

The Astros took a page out of KFC’s book with this concoction. It’s a waffle cone that contains fried chicken, mashed potatoes and honey mustard, resembling KFC’s Famous Bowl that mixes popcorn chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy and corn. Both are delicious. Both aren’t that weird.

 

 

6. Lobster Poutine Steak (Red Sox)

Not a ton of creativity points for the Red Sox here. Poutine is already good on its own, and trying to add some lobster and replace the gravy with bisque isn’t as weird as it is wrong.

 

 

5. Bourbon and cinnamon babka push pop (Nationals)

Bourbon and cinnamon sounds like a palatable option. It’s slightly uncomfortable to imagine that flavor combination in a dessert usually enjoyed by kids. Still worth trying.

 

 

4. Dodger Burger (Dodgers)

The classic question at most BBQs is “burger or hot dog?” The Dodgers answered “both.” What’s more, on top of the burger-hot dog sandwich is BBQ sauce, jalapeño poppers and caramelized onions.

 

 

3. Funnel Cake Chicken Sandwich (Diamondbacks)

Sweet and salty mixtures usually work, so I can get behind fried chicken sandwiched between a sugary funnel cake. It starts to climb the weird food chain when you consider the cheddar cheese and strawberry jam also added to the sandwich.

 

 

2. Barnyard Wedding (Yankees)

Like most of these options, this isn’t for everyone. But there’s definite potential in a burger topped with cheddar, fried chicken and a hashbrown. Might take two (or seven) people to conquer this beast.

 

 

1. Killer Kilbane Dog (Indians)

There are bizarre food combinations that are strategic and could work together, and then there’s random concoctions made for Instagram more than consumption. This is the latter. It’s a hot dog with relish, peanut butter and sriracha. Hopefully you’re sitting near a bathroom.
