Fan voting begins for new Whitecaps food item

For the eighth consecutive year, the West Michigan Whitecaps are asking fans to vote for a new unique food item to be added to the menu at Fifth Third Ballpark.

There are 10 choices this year. Here are photos and descriptions of each one, courtesy of the Whitecaps:


Beercheese Poutine: We’re going to show those Canadians a thing or two about food. Take fries, add pulled pork, BBQ sauce, beer-cheese sauce and green onions, put them all together and it makes all of our friends from the Great White North go from “Eh” to “Heeeeeey!”


Cy Youngdae: Having a donut — great! Two donuts — amazing! Having strawberries and whipped cream sandwiched between two donuts is the Cy Young of all desserts! This will go down as arguably the greatest dessert in history.


Deep-Fried Bubble Gum: Chewing gum and baseball has been synonymous. It’s in packs of baseball cards, it’s in the clubhouse, it’s in the dugout, and now it’s in the deep fryer! Deep-Fried Bubble Gum is a home run of an idea!


Dessert Fries: The age-old dispute between those who like sweet and those who like savory has been settled. Dessert Fries have the perfect amounts of French fries, chocolate and strawberry sauce. It’s a sweet and savory paradise where everyone is welcome!


Hula Chicken Dance: From the land of poi, Don Ho and Barack Obama comes this mix of Hawaii and Japan. Take a pineapple, craft it into a bowl, then fill it with rice and Teriyaki chicken. So good it will give a third meaning to Aloha: “More please!”


I Full Tower: This incredible concoction could easily become the 8th wonder of the modern world just from its sheer beauty. A foot-long corndog surrounded by onion rings is not only appeasing to the eye, but will make your taste buds say, “C’est fantastique!”


Mighty Mac Dog: All Michiganders know that to cross from the Mitten to the U.P., you use the Mighty Mac. When you cross baseball and amazing you get the Mighty Mac Dog! A hot dog with mac and cheese, bacon, lettuce and tomato all on a pretzel bun. After you have this you’ll never be cross again.


Nacho Mama’s PB&J: The days of trading in your sandwich at the school lunch table are over! The traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwich has been schooled. Come get your deep-fried peanut butter and jelly sandwich coated in Doritos.


The Alan Spammell: Fried Spam and mac and cheese might be a better duo that Alan Trammell and Lou Whitaker. Well, that might be a stretch, but you can chalk this up to be the best double play combo of the 2017 fan food vote. Fried spam, mac and cheese, topped with bacon and served on a bun is truly a pitcher’s best friend.


The Last Samuroll: From the Land of the Rising Sun comes the best thing to happen to America since Pokemon! We’re going to take that sushi roll, put it on a stick, deep fry it, and add a little Siracha! It won’t be the Last Samuroll you’ll ever eat.

Now that you know the choices, go here to vote for your favorite! Voting ends at 4 p.m. EST on Friday, March 3.
