Phillies roll out salads and panini

Travel Deals

Panini, salads, frozen yogurt, and, yes, Tastykakes will be on the menu this season at Citizens Bank Park.

Concessionaire Aramark this morning announced some additions.

More healthful: A Philly Fresh stand, behind Section 139, will feature a Hall of Fame Salad (mixed greens, red grapes, pistachios, dried cranberries, blue cheese, balsamic vinaigrette); Shanghai Chicken Salad (grilled chicken breast, mixed greens, crispy Asian-style noodles, carrots, scallions, low-fat ginger soy dressing); trail mix; whole-grain pretzels; strawberry banana, and mango smoothies; low-fat yogurt and berry parfait; hummus dip with pita crisps; carrots and celery with low-fat ranch dressing; Go-Gurt yogurt and sugar-free Tastykakes.

Not necessarily healthful: A panini stand, behind Section 134, featuring hot-pressed buffalo chicken and Cuban sandwiches, and Yogen Fruz frozen yogurt, behind Sections 127 and 315.

Not healthful at all: Tastykake Chocolate Cupcakes, Butterscotch Krimpets and Peanut Butter Kandy Kakes available at South Philadelphia Market stands (behind Sections 106, 177, 128, 206, 318 and 323) and Hall of Fame and Diamond Clubs. (Sugar-Free Tastykakes available at Philly Fresh, behind Section 139).

No prices have been announced.

Oh, just to clear things up. Aramark acknowledged that it gave me incorrect info last week about the countertop refrigerators that will make Tastykakes available at the stadium. It's Tastykake that is ponying up the money for the units, not Aramark.
