Snacking is an integral part of the live baseball game experience, and it’s always been that way. Here are 4 more snack ideas for baseball games. When baseball first started out, there weren’t concession stands so vendors hawked their wares outside of the stadium. People chose treats that were easy to eat with bare hands, and the game-day snacking culture was born.
Looking for something different than the usual potato chips for game night? For some people, the snacks are the life of the party right behind their favorite team. If you’re looking for a healthier option that still stimulates a game-day yum factor, consider adding a natural twist to your snacking spread.
The top four snack ideas for baseball games are:
– Pumpkin and Sunflower Seeds
– Corn Nuts
– Deluxe House Mix
We love these favorites because they go along well with the classics as well, such as beer, nachos, and hotdogs.
Peanuts as snack for a baseball game
Peanuts are a classic choice because they’ve been associated with
baseball for so long. If you want to cue the feeling of being at a live event, picking these little morsels of nutty goodness is the choice to make.
Even the vaudeville classic “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” treats peanuts like a baseball icon. It may not be as amazing as getting to scatter and stomp on peanut shells at the event itself, but it’s pretty close. If you really want to go old-school, you can pop some peanuts into a bottle of coke for a flavor twist not many people know about anymore.
Pumpkin and Sunflower Seeds
Adding some seeds to your game day packs a crunchy punch to any snack mix bowl. Pumpkin and sunflower seeds are an exceptionally good choice since they’re also good for you. They pack in the protein, vitamins, and minerals you need to be healthy into natural bite-sized morsels. Their two flavors stand alone well or can be combined for a more complex flavor.
We often see baseball players during the game chewing on sunflower seeds and spitting them out, but we’ve saved you the mess of the spit and still brought you a bit of flavor from the concession stands. If sunflower seeds aren’t your jam, our pumpkin seeds can be substituted so you can still feel like you’re crunching down on a staple of the game.
Corn Nuts as baseball snack
Corn nuts are an American classic, and our toasted corn does not
disappoint. Toasted corn is a truly American tradition, and its crunchy saltiness can be a level up from the usual pretzels and cheese curls. Since these nuts are made from whole roasted corn kernels, they’re whole grain and a high fiber choice to help counterbalance hot dogs and beer.
Corn nuts can also be added to trail mixes or mixed into popcorn for a change in texture. The super crunchy nature of this snack adds a snap to old favorites, and they can be combined with dried fruit and nut mixtures to add a different texture element.
Deluxe House Mix
Can’t decide on your favorite nut for game day? Go for all of them! Our deluxe house mix offers up salted peanuts, pumpkin seeds, almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, and peanuts. This myriad of flavors is perfectly earthy while still being nice and salty as expected from baseball food. Each fingerful will be a different taste and texture while meshing perfectly.
These nuts all digest at different rates, so they keep delivering energy and nutrients until the 9th inning. They have vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and protein for a well-balanced handful that’ll keep your blood flowing as you’re glued to the score.
One Final Thought
It’s a well-known fact that humans eat more when they’re distracted by some type of media. The game is a great example of that kind of distraction. It is easy to keep eating snacks without giving it a second thought. When you’re wrapped into a play and you lose track of how many handfuls of chips you’ve eaten, why not substitute nuts and whole grains for the empty calories?
