The Arlington-based MLB franchise The Texas Rangers is veering away from offering the typical peanuts and crackerjacks to fans and introducing them to bacon sticks. The bacon on a stick is a thick chunk of bacon on a stick that costs $7. While that may seem costly for a piece of bacon, it is well worth it if you are a bacon enthusiast because the strip is three-quarters of an inch thick, Hungarian-smoked and can be dipped in maple syrup.

Bacon is no longer considered a breakfast food; it has recently been infused into other foods like chocolate and everyday items like candles. The general manager of the Metroplex Sportservice said that they wanted to offer bacon for quite sometime but couldn't because it wasn't a practical food to walk around the park with. Now, the stick concept allows baseball fans to watch the game and enjoy a delicious sweet, salty, and crispy snack.
