Akron Aeros introduce hamburger stuffed with a hot dog, bacon and cheese

Apparently the Double-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians is in cahoots with Nutrisystem—or a local heart surgeon—because the club’s newest food additions are ridiculously unhealthy.

First the Akron Aeros announced the “3 Dog Night,” a 3,300 calorie containing “hot dog stuffed inside a bratwurst, stuffed inside a kielbasa, topped with sauerkraut and mustard, and served on a hoagie roll.”

Are you kidding me?

Now the minor league baseball team plans to add another gut busting sandwich, the “Nice 2 Meat You” burger.

Living up to its flesh-centric name, the “Nice 2 Meat You” consists of a 1 ¼ lb. hamburger, stuffed with a ½ lb. hot dog, and ¼ lb. of bacon, cheese, and onions.

Nice 2 Meat You (not really)
If the team continues to offer fare this filled with calories, fat and sodium (let’s add cruelty) the entrances to the friendly confines of Canal Park may need to be widened.

Somewhere the American Heart Association frowns in disbelief and disappointment while a factory farmer grins ear to ear.
