The Minnesota Twins and concessions and retail partner, Delaware North Sportservice, have announced new additions to the concessions at Target Field this seasons. In a news release Twins President Dave St. Peter says the team is thrilled with the continued evolution of the Target Field menu and merchandise offerings. He added the high quality products, local favorites and unparalleled selection have played a significant role in making the Target Field fan experience so special. Some of the new food offerings include:

Straight from Minnesota’s Iron Range, Valentini’s Supper Club is offering its famous meatballs. The Mega Meatball – a cheese-stuffed meatball served with marinara sauce and parmesan cheese.

A top-selling item at the State Fair, deep fried pickle chips from The Preferred Pickle will be served with ranch dressing on the side.

The Twins have added a baked potato bar featuring four delicious varieties of jumbo potatoes. One variation will feature nacho cheese, salsa and sour cream. The second variety will be a cheddar and broccoli baked potato. There will also be a classic baked potato with bacon, sour cream and chives. The bar will also feature a jumbo yam topped with maple butter and crushed pecans.

A staple of some west coast ballparks, garlic fries will make their debut at Target Field. These tasty skin-on fries, seasoned with a garlic and parmesan marinade, are sure to be a fan favorite.

New from The Food Network brand are the Bacon Sloppy Joe and Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese. The Bacon Sloppy Joe includes ground beef and slab bacon chunks. It’s slow-cooked with tomatoes and served with rolls, shredded pepper jack cheese and fried onions. Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese is tossed with spicy buffalo chicken, topped with blue cheese breadcrumbs and baked until crispy.

SuperMom’s Mini Donuts, found throughout SuperAmerica convenience stores, will be baked fresh. SuperMom’s Mini Donuts offers three varieties – powdered sugar, cinnamon, and cinnamon and sugar.

Leeann Chin is serving up Minnesota’s favorite stir fry. Guests can enjoy their choice of a chicken stir fry in a red chile sauce or vegetarian stir fry in a teriyaki sauce.

Guests with a sweet tooth can enjoy Pearson’s Salted Nut Roll from Pearson’s Candy. The creamy nougat center is surrounded by golden caramel and covered with fresh salted Virginia peanuts to create a unique salty yet sweet flavor combination. It’s truly a one of a kind non-chocolate candy bar.

The Twins have also formed a new partnership with B. Smith Olive Oil, a locally-produced, minority-owned business. The olive oil will be used for cooking throughout the premium seating areas at Target Field.

New Beverages for 2012:

The Twins and Sportservice are also proud to announce a partnership with locally-based 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey. The 2 Gingers Pubs, formerly known as the Twins Pubs, will feature the Big Ginger; a signature cocktail made of 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey, ginger ale, with lemon and lime garnish.

While Anheuser-Busch remains the official beer partner of the Minnesota Twins, the Twins have expanded their selection of local craft beers. Brews from Surly, Fulton, Summit, Finnegans, and Schell’s will be available at various locations throughout Target Field.

In the 573 club, the Twins have added beers from Fulton, Lift Bridge, Granite City and Cold Springs Brewery.
