The Maryland Terrapins are going big this season by offering a huge — gigantic, monstrous even — 24 ounce soft pretzel smothered with back fin crab dip and melted cheese and dusted with Old Bay. Large enough to serve two to four people, the “Chessie” pretzel will be available at Byrd Stadium throughout the 2014 football season.
Named for the lesser known lake monster of Chesapeake Bay, the Chessie will cost you $17.50, says the Washington Post — a steal, considering how big it is. There’s also the equally Maryland-inspired crab-covered nachos and french fries, designed to introduce game-goers to “warm Maryland hospitality and cuisine,” according to a release.
Whether the newly-inducted University of Maryland is ready to be a Big Ten school or not is yet to be seen, but we can safely say its concession stand is killing the game.
