Baseball is back! While it may look a little different than it did in years past, we can once again root, root, root for the home team — at least from the safety of our homes. We’re happy to enjoy this summertime pastime again and even happier to enjoy the snacks that come with it. Pitch these ballpark snack ideas to your family. They’re sure to be a home run!
We’ve come up with ways to use our favorite produce items as fun and unique ballpark snack ideas. Don’t strike out when it comes to game day snacking. There’s something here for even the pickiest fans!
Gone Fishin’ Celery Snacks
Fresh, crunchy celery is a great snack to cool off with after a hot day. Put a tray of Gone Fishin’ Celery Snacks in front of your family and you’ll be the MVP! With Dandy Celery Sticks, they’re a breeze to make.

These crunchy apple snacks may be small, but they’re no bunt when it comes to flavor. We recommend using Crunch Pak apple slices in this recipe. They’re pre-sliced and come in individual snack-sized bags. What you don’t use in the crostinis will make crunchy, fruity, hassle-free snacks later!

Air Fried Watermelon Bites
Fried food is exactly what you would expect to find at the ballpark, but these air-fried bites are light and crunchy rather than greasy and heavy like most deep-fried foods.

Spongebob Paw Patrol Grapes and Grape Flatbread Pizza
Make baseball even more fun for your kids to watch by adding their favorite SpongeBob and PAW Patrol characters to the mix! HMC Farms’ ready-to-eat fresh grape packs are ideal for a quick snack or for making an amazing grape flatbread pizza. Watching sports is always better with a slice of pizza in hand.

Naturipe Bliss Bento Snack Line
These snacks come ready to slide into home – no preparation necessary! With many well-crafted packs to choose from, there’s a Naturipe snack for everyone. Keep these in your dugout for a quick ready-made snack.
Toasted Walnuts and Blackberry Jam Bites
Peanuts and cracker Jack’s are yesterday’s news. Toasted walnuts and blackberry jam are the ballpark snack ideas of today! The fruity, nutty flavor makes for a sweet and savory baseball snack. We’re fans of the quality nuts available from California Walnuts and love using them in our recipes.
Celery Hummus Jars
If cream cheese on celery isn’t your style, what about hummus? It’s filled with protein and other nutrients and makes a flavorful companion for celery. We used small jars with hummus at the bottom and celery sticks for dipping, but you could mix up a tray of hummus-topped celery sticks and Gone Fishin’ Celery Sticks for some variety.

Sweeten up your hot summer evenings after the last pitch has been thrown with these grilled peaches. A grilled and caramelized peach is even sweeter and more satisfying than a fresh one, especially on a humid summer night.

Not every s’more is made around the fire. Try toasting your marshmallows on the kitchen stove then build a snack tray full of s’mores for baseball night. A slice of watermelon makes this the Babe Ruth of s’mores.

Red, White, and Blueberry Truffles
Pay homage to America’s pastime with these patriotic truffles! Packed with raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, and blueberries, these colorful truffle cups make a sweet ending to any game.
