The ballpark chow at Everett Aquasox games hits to all fields

A mushroom blend burger, pulled pork sandwiches and loaded tater tots are some of the new offerings.

Sure, they’ve got peanuts and Cracker Jacks, but Funko Field offers a whole lot more to eat — including several new menu items this season.

Aquasox fans now can nosh on mushroom blend burgers, loaded tater tots with cheese, bacon and green onions, pulled pork sandwiches and chipotle black bean burgers. The new fare joins mainstays such as hot dogs, pizza, subs, bread bowls, nachos, pretzels and cotton candy.

Concession stands are located in the concourse behind home plate, while several other kiosks nearby sell snacks, beverages and specialty items, such as Dippin’ Dots.

Hot dogs are the ballpark’s top seller — so many fans wanted them on opening night June 21 that there was up to a 10-minute delay on orders, said Rick Maddox, Sox assistant general manager.

The new menu items include some more healthful options.

The mushroom blend burger ($6.50), which combines grass-fed beef with organic mushrooms, is made by organic meat company Applegate Farms and available at the High Heat BBQ concession stand. For vegetarians, there’s the chipotle black bean burger made with beans, rice, corn, egg and soy flour.

If you’re not worried about calories, the chili cheese fries ($6.50), garlic fries ($5.50) and the newly introduced loaded tater tots ($7) might be more your style. Find the loaded tater tots at the fry stand in the main plaza behind home plate.

If you’re in the mood for pork, try sausages and bratwurst made by Hempler’s in Ferndale. Choose from the andouille sausage ($7) with hints of Cajun spice, the 1/3-pound double-smoked sausage ($7) and the jumbo hot dog ($5).

Maddox said children gravitate toward Alfy’s cheese and pepperoni pizza made by the local restaurant chain. Then they top that off with a mini Aquasox batting helmet filled with Dippin’ Dots ($6), which is created by flash-freezing an ice cream mix in liquid nitrogen. There are five flavors: rainbow ice, cookies ’n’ cream, mint crunch, brownie batter and cookie dough.

Kids get to keep the batting helmets. “Very few of those end up in the trash,” Maddox said.

Chowder bowls ($7.75) are filled with Ivar’s clam chowder. Jersey Mike’s sells half-subs for $7. Diedrich Espresso, which has stands in Everett, Snohomish and Mukilteo, serves coffee.

Locally made beers on tap include At Large Brewing & Taproom from Everett, Three Bull Brewing from Snohomish and Whitewall Brewing Co. from Marysville. Draft beer is $8.

“We like to support local guys, and the fans love that,” Maddox said.
