Baseball games are not completed without a number of things, one of the most important ones being food. Truist Park, home of the Atlanta Braves, hosts a phenomenal baseball team, but does that even matter if the food is not good?
Atlanta Braves are the reigning World Series Champions, but it is time to see how their food fares on my brutally honest list. To the foods we did not rank but enjoyed, sorry, but we left Dippin’ Dots and burgers off the list. We will review some of the simple foods that baseball is known for, not the crazy golden burgers.

Soft Pretzel, 4/10
One of my favorite foods to order at the ballpark is a big ole pretzel with salt and some cheese sauce to dip it in. With that being said, I was rather disappointed with what Truist Park had to offer me and my taste buds. I have heard other sources say this rating is low, but I have to judge it based off my own experience.
Typically, one would expect to bite into a nice, warm and fluffy pretzel, but this simply did not happen in Atlanta. The pretzel was stale and felt like cardboard. Had the cheese sauce not absolutely saved the overall outcome, we could have been looking at a 1/10. Perhaps I caught the pretzels on a bad day, but I was not pleased with this pretzel which deserves a 4/10.
Hot Dog, 5/10
The hot dogs in Braves Country are just not memorable. This hot dog had ketchup, mustard and relish on it, and it was not that bad, but not great either.
I and my other guest rating these stadium foods completely forgot we even had the hot dog in the first place. It was truly a forgettable food. The hot dogs were not gross whatsoever but really did not have a memorable taste. It was affordable, but I have had better dogs in my day.
Popcorn and baseball go together almost as well as movies and baseball. Nothing will ever top movie theater popcorn with extra butter, but Truist Park did their best job attempting to do so.
Honestly, most people do not expect anything special when it comes to popcorn, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was buttery and delectable but as a movie connoisseur, it was hard to match. The good news for the Braves, however, is that the popcorn was the best I have had at a Major League game.
Truist Park Pizza, 9.1/10
We finish the rankings off with some pizza, which is not really a baseball staple, but it would be a crime to leave it off the list. Every MLB stadium I have been to serves pizza, but this pizza was different, in a good way.
First off, the slices sold at Truist Park are the size of your head and good enough to be your entire meal. Who says no to abnormally sized pizza slices and some fun baseball? It is a shame that the Braves are no longer playing downtown in the heart of Atlanta, but at least their pizza is good. I did not expect a slice of cheese pizza to take the crown in these rankings, but props to my slice of pizza for finishing first with a score of 9.1/10.
