Looking for something good to eat at Fifth Third Field? There is a variety of meals, snacks and desserts to satisfy appetites.

Among the new foods on the menu this year are two different burgers. One is the "Double Play Burger," a tasty combination of Angus beef and a Philly cheesesteak, while another is the "Bloomin' Bacon Burger," which combines beef with bacon, onion rings, and plenty of cheese.

Want something spicy? Two new items should fill that bill: the "Flaming Muddy" is a chicken breast topped with jalapeno peppers and pepperjack cheese, while Koegel's "Spicy Sausage" is hot sausage topped with chili and onions.

Do you like pretzels? Do you like a LOT of pretzel? The Mud Hens have added a 24-ounce pretzel called the "Texas Twist" to the roster.

If you like a lot of ice cream, nachos or popcorn, the Hens are willing to fill up a batting helmet with enough food to feed the family.

Craig Nelson, the Mud Hens assistant general manager for food and beverage, said the Hens are working with local vendor Okun Produce on a way to feed fans looking for a healthy alternative.

"Probably some time in May we're going to come out with a cart that offers a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables," he said. "It's going to be a work in progress throughout the season, but we're excited about it.

"We're going to have some healthy options -- and maybe not-so-healthy options, like putting chocolate on them. We're going to listen to the fans on that one."
