PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It’s debatable whether the Phillies will be contenders this season. But among the new food offerings at Citizens Bank Park is a “can’t-miss” prospect.

The bacon dog — a hot dog with a slab of bacon and melted cheese (top photo) — is among the new Phillies’ ballpark food offerings this year.

It’s one of several varieties of the classic baseball food now in their rookie year, says Aramark general manager Kevin Tedesco:

“The hot dog is by far… it’s like movie theatre popcorn! You’ve got to get one when you’re at the ballpark. So as you saw today, a lot of variations of the classic Phillies frank. You can get a cheesesteak dog, the summer dog is back on a pretzel roll, and obviously the chili and cheese.”

Other new foods include pastrami, an “Over Easy” burger topped with a fried egg, and even a bucket of mussels at Harry the K’s.

One food not making the roster this season is the ballpark panini. It’s outta here!
