The Minnesota Twins and Delaware North Sportservice unveiled Tuesday the new foods that will be sold at Target Field once the season kicks off Thursday.

Brand-new to the ballpark is Soul Bowl with its mix-and-match soul food bowls; Craft Sandwiches with grown-up versions of kids’ food; and shareable boards of Greek meze, barbecue and tacos. Among the trendier offerings, find new flavors of frozen wine slushies, a waffle cone stuffed with slab bacon and chicken tenders, and the mammoth Boomstick, a two-foot-long chili dog.

There’s a whole new open-air food and retail lawn called the Gate 34 Experience, where rotating smaller vendors will make first appearances among big hitters like Kramarczuk’s and Red Cow. Those newbies will change each series, so don’t get too excited for Smack Shack’s lobster roll. (Ok, get excited. Lobster roll!) That area also has a local craft beer wall with 22 taps.

Some of the older vendors who made Target Field a leader among local sports venues — for inviting local restaurants to serve their grub alongside nachos in a helmet — are celebrating 10 years at the stadium. Those are Kramarczuk’s, for their sausages; the Loon Cafe and its chili; and Murray’s Steakhouse, whose smoked beef sandwich is still a standout.

Here’s everything new you’ll find on Opening Day. (Prices were not available as of Tuesday afternoon, and a Twins representative said they wouldn’t be coming out until Wednesday. So don’t blame us if you wind up paying $34 for a sandwich.)
