How to Get Sauce Evenly on Your Hot Dog

MLB venues have pumped out some truly original food items over recent years, but we may officially have the wonkiest one ever, courtesy of the Pittsburgh Pirates and PNC Park.

The stadium is now proud host to the Cracker Jack & Mac Dog. Because, at this point, why not?

Want to try it?Grab cheap tickets to a Pirates game.

The hot dog comes topped with macaroni and cheese, caramel sauce, Cracker Jacks and jalapeños. In other words: It combines every possible flavor you could ever imagine eating all at once.

Let's just walk through this ingredient-by-ingredient. Hot peppers on a hot dog is certainly reasonable. Macaroni and cheese is certainly outlandish, but could probably be appealing to some more adventurous eaters. Cracker Jacks, though? Those have no place on a hot dog. And caramel sauce? Huh? WHY?

News of the Cracker Jack & Mac Dog comes just days after the Atlanta Braves unveiled the Burgerizza, which, yes, is a burger slapped between two personal pizzas instead of buns.

It's very clear that MLB parks have lost their minds. Perhaps this is all some sort of social experiment.

29. Rogers Centre, Toronto Blue Jays

The only things worse than this warehouse-looking place are the metric measurements on the outfield walls.

23. Angel Stadium, Los Angeles Angels

Nothin’ like some fake rocks in center field to really set the mood for a baseball game.

22. Progressive Field, Cleveland Indians

The fact that it’s no longer Jacobs Field bumps this down at least five spots.

21. Busch Stadium, St. Louis Cardinals

Can this place just stay out of the playoffs just once?

19. Chase Field, Arizona Diamondbacks

Center field is the deepest part of the stadium, guys. The wall doesn’t need to be that high.

5. Fenway Park, Boston Red Sox

Relax, Fenway is definitely an amazing place to watch a game. But sitting directly behind a pole and/or facing the left-center field wall just isn’t always appealing.
