Grasshoppers Sell-Out at Mariners Game

This is actually a pretty crazy article taken the fact that baseball is usually associated with the terms “Americas pastime” and “tradition” The Seattle Mariners have introduced a whole new dish to the stadium concession world. The Mariners this year decided to partner with a local restaurant called Poquitos and started selling their toasted grasshoppers in chill-lime salt. Surprisingly enough, they have SOLD-OUT! They ended up selling out their first 3 homes games of the season and even had to make an emergency run for more during their weekend series against the Texas Rangers. It would be interesting to see if more Major League clubs decide to hop on this train and begin to introduce new alternative foods to expand the pallet past the basic hotdogs and burgers.
