$25 corn dog: Really Diamondbacks with your $25 ballpark corn dog?

“$25 corn dog here!” So may shout the stadium hawkers this year at Arizona Diamondbacks’ Chase Field. But $25 bucks even for sports food fare is out of this league.

Reports WebProNews on Tuesday:

Big Dawgs at the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Chase Field have introduced a new ginormous corn dog that will not only satisfy any hunger needs of fans, but will also empty their wallets as well. They are calling the new snack the “D-bat Dog” and it’s 18 inches of corn dog stuffed with cheese and bacon.

That about a buck 40 an inch. Pretty steep for a glammed up hot dog.

Culinary cuisine at our nation’s ballparks have certainly changed over the standard peanuts and dogs. We get that. But this budget buster is over the top. At least it comes with a side of fries.

“This is really about providing our fans with new options each year, and in the case of some of our larger items, it’s really about sharing with the family,” team president and CEO Derrick Hall said. “We don’t have any expectations for the D-Bat, but we’ll look forward to seeing if it becomes popular with our fans. Every night for us is a successful night because we offer the most affordable food prices in all of baseball.”

A less expensive alternative will also make its debut this season. Called the “Venom Dog,” it will be a foot-long habanera sausage topped up Southwest style with black beans, guacamole, pico de gallo and sour cream.

Would you shell out $25 bucks for this extra-long dog? Leave your thoughts below.
