Craziest NFL stadium foods from around the country....

The Bottom Line: Stadium concessions have come a long way from hotdogs and beer

The Full Story:

Going to an NFL game isn’t just about the game anymore. Stadium concessions have upped their game by delivering some of the best tasting and calorie laden foods on the planet. From dessert nachos to a seven pound burger, or even a steak, anything goes.

Here are some mouth watering examples of the fare that fans can score.

  • Arizona Cardinals: Gridiron Challenge Burger. A $75 masterpiece with five one-third pound burger patties, five hot dogs, five bratwursts, eight slices of bacon, eight chicken tenders, 20 slices of American cheese, 12 ounces of fries, and "tanker sauce," all stacked on a 10-inch bun. And the veggies - lettuce, tomato and pickles.
  • Houston Texans: Battle Red Tacos. Chicken tenders encrusted with Flamin' Hot Cheetos, topped them with mango salsa and Sriracha mayo, and nestled it all conveniently inside a flour tortilla.
  • Kansas City Chiefs: Kingdom Inferno Chicken Sandwich. Chicken tender sandwich topped with a mayo made with the hottest pepper known to man -- the Carolina Reaper. And for some more spice pepper jack cheese, sliced jalapenos and Buffalo sauce.
  • Seattle Seahawks: Beef Pho. Vietnamese soup with braised beef, rice noodles, bean sprouts, Thai basil, Fresno chilis and rich pho broth.
  • Pittsburgh Steelers: North Shore Huluski. Potato and cheese-filled pierogi pillows, topped with braised cabbage and finished with sliced kielbasa.
  • San Francisco 49ers: Dungeness Crab Pretzel. A pretzel baguette with knuckle and claw crab meat tossed with garlic aioli, Dijon mustard and chives.
  • Detroit Lions: Dessert Nachos. Fried tortilla chips dusted with cinnamon and sugar, then topped with smoked chocolate cherry Nutella sauce, chocolate covered Michigan cherries, sprinkles, and whipped cream.

FDA: Don’t Eat Honey Smacks -

People are apparently still eating a recalled cereal that may make them very ill.

The FDA has taken to Twitter to warn people not to eat Honey Smacks. It says the popular Kellogg's cereal has been linked to 130 confirmed salmonella infections in 34 states and some people have been hospitalized.

The reason for their warning is 30 of those case are new! That means, the Kellogg’s product is still in pantrys around the country.

Honey Smacks has been the subject of a recall since June, which means stores can't sell it, but people are still getting sick from it. The FDA's theory is that people still have the cereal in their homes so the agency is tweeting, telling people to get rid of it.

We can’t stress enough….throw out the cereal, but don’t eat it.

Scientists Discover Ancient Cheese

 - Humans were making cheese earlier than thought.

Archaeologists have found the remains of a fermented dairy product in ancient pottery along the Croatian coast. It's about 72-hundred years old, four-thousand years before previous evidence of old cheese. That shifts the beginning of cheesemaking back 4000 years.

In case you want to know what 72-year-old cheese tastes like….you wouldn't want to since the fatty residue is all that’s left of it.

The find was detailed yesterday in the journal PLOS One. Researchers theorize that early cheese and dairy production helped humans survive as children and eventually enabled them to thrive in colder climates.Source: CNN

COMBATTING MOSQUITOES:

First case of West Nile in Charlotte County has prompted the local Florida Dept. Of Health to suggest the following:

DOH in Charlotte County:

Drain standing water to stop mosquitoes from multiplying

• Drain water from garbage cans, house gutters, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys, flower pots or any other containers where sprinkler or rain water has collected.

• Discard old tires, drums, bottles, cans, pots and pans, broken appliances and other items that aren’t being used.

• Empty and clean birdbaths and pet’s water bowls at least once or twice per week.

• Protect boats and vehicles from rain with tarps that don’t accumulate water.

• Maintain swimming pools in good condition and keep them appropriately chlorinated. Empty plastic swimmingpools when not in use.

Cover skin with clothing or repellent

Clothing: Wear shoes, socks, and long pants and longsleeves. This type of protection may be necessary for people who must work in areas where mosquitoes are present.

Repellent: Apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. Always use repellents according to the label. Repellents with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus,para-menthane-diol, and IR3535 are effective.

Use mosquito netting to protect children younger than 2 months old.

Tips on repellent use

Always read label directions carefully for the approved usage before you apply a repellent. Some repellents are not suitable for children.

Products with concentrations of up to 30 percent DEET (N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide) are generally recommended. Other U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-approved repellents contain picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, para-menthane-diol, or IR3535. These products are generally available at local pharmacies. Look for active ingredients to be listed on the product label.

Apply insect repellent to exposed skin, or onto clothing, but not under clothing.

In protecting children, read label instructions to be sure the repellent is age-appropriate. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), mosquito repellents containing oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children under the age of 3 years. DEET is not recommended on children younger than two months old.

Avoid applying repellents to the hands of children. Adults should apply repellent first to their own hands and then transfer it to the child’s skin and clothing.

If additional protection is necessary, apply a permethrin repellent directly to your clothing. Again, always follow the manufacturer’s directions.

Cover doors and windows with screens to keep mosquitoes out

Repair broken screening on windows, doors, porches, and patios.
