Citizens Bank Park Food News

Forget about who is going to be the Opening Day starter, or who will be the leadoff hitter for the Phils this season (although Jimmy Rollins says he doesn't mind if it's Ben Revere -- more on that coming in the Daily Times). The real buzz in the press box Tuesday was this:

Federal Donuts has a stand in Citizens Bank Park this season.

For those in Delco who have no idea what Federal Donuts is, well you have been missing out. The South Philly staple -- originally at 2nd & Federal, with a second store opening late last year at 16th & Sansom -- serves outrageously awesome hot donuts, as well as "fancy" donuts with such flavor bombs like Maple Bacon and French Toast. (Just writing those words makes me want to fly home and stuff my face.) Then, in the late morning, the store switches gears and starts making twice-fried chicken that is like crack in fowl form.

Anyway, they are coming to the ballpark. And it's probably the best offseason signing the Phillies made.
