Among the new food items for sale at Yankee Stadium is what’s billed as the “tape measure cheesesteak.”
It’s a two-foot cheesesteak baked daily that the Yankees say can be topped with either white American cheese or Cheez Whiz and is “the perfect sandwich to share.”
Which makes sense. According to the menu board at Carl’s Steaks at section 107, this cheesesteak has an expected calorie count of . . . 1,795.
It costs $27.00. Workers there said they had sold one in the first hour.
Not to be outdone, though, the “Triple Play” stand a few calorie-burning steps away offers these new options:
--“Double-Double,” which has two burgers, onion rings, American cheese and topped (and bottomed) by grilled cheese sandwiches. Calorie count: 1,450. Cost: $20.--
--“Barnyard Wedding,” which features beef, fried chicken, shredded potato hash browns, BBQ sauce and cheddar cheese. Calorie count: 1,120. Cost: $16.
-- “G.O.A.T. (Greatest of All Time Burger),” which features beef, bacon, pastrami, American cheese and special sauce. Calorie count: 1,050. Cost: $16.
