The West Michigan Whitecaps announced the winner of their 7th annual Fan Food Vote contest, revealing “Dutch Love” as the top choice.
“Dutch Love” is described by the team as a “delicious combination of turkey pot roast, gravy, cheese curds and French fries wrapped up in a pita.” It will be served at the Comfort Food Cart located on the concourse behind home plate.
The winning entry received 26 percent of votes, while Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Pie finished a close second with 22 percent. The 1,300-calorie High Five Burger finished third with 20 percent. (You can read about those and other unique food items that were in the running here.)
