Whitecaps announce winner of 2016 food contest

Dutch Love


COMSTOCK PARK, Mich. (WOOD) — The winner of the Whitecaps’ seventh annual food contest was announced Thursday morning.

In a narrow race, Whitecaps fans chose “Dutch Love” to be featured on the Fifth Third Ballpark’s menu this season.

Dutch Love is a combination of turkey pot roast, gravy, cheese curds and French fries wrapped up in a pita.

The Whitecaps narrowed down a list of hundreds of menu suggestions to just eight finalists and then fans got to choose the winner.

These were the results of the top four finalists:

  1. Dutch Love (26%)
  2. Deep Fried Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Pie (22%)
  3. 1,300 calorie High Five Burger (20%)
  4. Franky Ears (no percentage given)

Fans will get their first chance to try Dutch Love at the Whitecaps’ home opener on April 9.

Past winners include the Declaration of Indigestion (hot dog covered in a Philly cheese steak), Baco (a taco shell made of bacon), the Auger Dogger (a potato spiraled around a hot dog) and last year’s winner, the Hot-to-Tot (a combination of tater tots, buffalo chicken, hot sauce and bleu cheese).
