It's time to vote for the new food item for the 2023 Whitecaps season

Three finalists have been narrowed down from hundreds of submissions from fans and the Gordon Food Service Test Kitchen.

COMSTOCK PARK, Mich. — As the West Michigan Whitecaps 2023 season approaches, it's time to vote for what new food will appear at LMCU Ballpark.

Every year, fans vote between three finalists which have been narrowed down from hundreds of fan submissions and dozens of ideas from the Gordon Food Service Test Kitchen.

Voting has already begun and lasts through Thursday, March 9. The winner will be announced later in the month.

For the 2023 season, the three finalists are:

Vote for your favorite dish here.

Last year’s winner was Greek Gyro Nachos made with fresh pita chips topped with strips of gyro meat, feta cheese crumbles, onions, tomatoes and topped with tzatziki sauce.

Another previous winner was the fan favorite and national-award-winning dish was Beercheese Poutine. The dish consisted of pulled barbeque pork, beer cheese and green onions over waffle fries.

We're going to show those Canadians a thing or two about food. Take fries add pulled pork, bbq sauce, beer cheese sauce and green onions put them all together and it makes all of our friends from the Great White North go from 'Eh to Heeeeeey!

Beercheese Poutine won the fan vote in 2017 and then again in 2020 where it was pitted against all of the fan vote winners from the last decade.
