The Rangers are not the only iconic Texans in Surprise this spring.
Football legend Earl Campbell’s smoked sausage makes its debut at the Surprise Stadium concessions Wednesday as the spring training season begins with the Rangers hosting the Royals.
Earl’s hot links aren’t the only new additions available this spring. An artery-scaring mac ‘n’ cheese with bratwurst bowl is new to the menu. And if all-beef hot dogs don’t have enough pork for your taste, try the new bacon mac ‘n’ cheese dog. Apparently, somebody got a good deal on some bulk mack ‘n’ cheese.
Other new entries, all provided by food service giant Aramark, include fresh pork-tenderloin sandwiches, waffle fries and Italian sandwiches.
“We try to introduce new items every season,” said Tara Combs, community and recreation services director for the City of Surprise. Combs said hot dogs, nachos, popcorn and ice cream remain crowd favorites.
But my purchases alone may make Earl’s hot links the top seller this March.
