Nacho Helmet coming to the Bronx

The Yankees have added all kinds of new food to the Yankee Stadium experience. My personal favorite from the press release is the "Nacho Helmet."

Build Your Own Nachos, including the “Nacho Helmet” is available at Wholly Guacamole portable stands on the 200 and 300 Levels and in the Bleachers. Fans may pick their toppings in a regular-sized order of nachos or have an official plastic replica Yankees helmet filled with 12 ounces of nacho chips with their choice of toppings added.

One day, maybe they will have official game-used helmets, authenticated by Steiner Sports.

Anyway, the Yanks are adding unlimited popcorn buckets ($12), tacos and empanadas and Coconut Rum Glazed BBQ Smoked Ribs.

Here are the rest of the items from the press release:
