Ridiculous.

Pretty soon ballparks and schools will be checking everyone's breath to make sure people didn't [gasp!] enjoy themselves, er...eat anything with peanuts at home.

It's their responsibility to avoid their allergens. And if that means they're unable to go where peanut-eaters go, too bad.

No. There is no special amendment. And no, this lack of Crackerjacks doesn't impair their quality, or safety, or well-being, if they have to go without.


Like I said, it's a silly hill to plant their flags.
Requoted for truth. The ball parks are PRIVATE organizations besides, even if their events do qualify as public spaces (for they're in the business of serving the public). Unlike race, orientation, etc issues - there's no compelling human interest to eating peanuts.

I realize that some folks may be allergic to peanuts, but it isn't that large of a percentage. The banning of Cracker Jack and other peanut products is unfair to those who can abide them and love their taste.

Whatever happened to just letting people decide yes or no to things? They should sell the damn products and make them available. Period. If people don't want to buy them, then they don't have to.

If you're shoving cracker jacks into your prison purse to smuggle them into an AA baseball game, I think it's time to reevaluate your life choices.

Bottom line is: the owners decided to do this. The owners get to decide. The owners were moved to sympathy for those people with LIFE THREATENING allergies to peanuts.


It doesn't mean that people don't get to eat at the ball game. Like the article said...there are over 200 offerings at the ballpark. Can you truly NOT be appeased by something else?
How old are you - 15?

When I was a kid, there were two offerings at the ballpark: Coke and peanuts. And I doubt there's any ballpark that has "200 offerings" even today.

I'm sure this stadium is no different.

And yes, I know that just because I don't see it, doesn't mean it doesn't happen. I'm just saying, they don't seem to be a popular baseball snack.
But peanuts ARE. They are now, and they always have been. And that's what this stadium is getting rid of.

So learn to carry an E-Pen, Benedryl, prednisone, whatever.


Several years ago I had an allergic reaction to new carpet. I was walking barefoot when I developed hives on my feet, which spread up my legs, trunk, face, scalp. Then my lips started to swell and my throat tightened. I happened to have a bottle of liquid children's Benedryl, I drank the bottle, 4 0z. A friend who's an EMS driver told me they carry it on runs and a bottle of children's is about right for an adult. Then, I took prednisone, then, everything got better. Should I now insist no carpet in public buildings?

Sure seems like it when most ballparks need to have an "a-z guide" of their food offerings. It's definitely not just coke and peanuts anymore. It's Asian stir fry, bacon wrapped bratwurst, chicken club sandwich, assorted carved meats, cheeseburger, bacon cheeseburger, hamburger, double cheeseburger, turkey burger, vegan burger, fries, chips, tater tots, donuts, nachos, nacho supreme, pizza, cheesesteak, pretzel, popcorn, tacos, pulled pork sandwich, pulled pork platter, turkey sandwich, turkey platter, brisket sandwich, brisket platter... And that's not even getting into your drink choices... 50 different beers, margaritas, vodka drinks, whiskey drinks, coke, diet coke, Pibb, root beer... The list goes on and on.
