Sports teams adding off-the-wall shit to their concession stands is the latest craze in sports. From the NFL, to the MLB, to even the minor leagues, everyone is doing it. I don’t know if they are trying to drive more attendance or just clog the arteries of the folks who show up, but teams are releasing this shit without relent.
Today, Michigan’s Battle Creek Bombers dropped yet another culinary atrocity on the world. The Pop-Tart taco, or “Poptarko” as they will affectionately call it. It’s a mix of several foods we all love, but would never dream of eating together, because gross.
According to the team’s press release:
The taco is coated in maple syrup sourced from Michigan, as well as cheese. The soft shell is then wrapped around a hard corn taco shell. The taco is then built with BBQ Pulled Pork — also sourced from Michigan — and even includes a full Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Pop-Tart, which is broken in half to better fit in the taco. For toppings, the Bombers suggest real crumbled bacon, a touch of maple syrup, additional cheese, and of course — crumbled up pieces of Pop-Tarts.
Another classic example of “just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.”
