Let's Go Mets! Gluten-Free at Citifield
Last year was the grand opening of the new Citifield, home of the New York Mets. I have always enjoyed going to Mets games ever since my dad started taking me in the mid-1908s. There was something nostalgic and comforting about Shea Stadium, but the new Citifield was an exciting addition to an otherwise dreary part of Queens. Upon my second or third game of the season, I found out they served RedBridge gluten-free beer in one of their beer kiosks. This was an exciting addition to the new ballpark.

Today I just read a press release that said there will now be a gluten-free Kozy Shack cart in Citifield serving not only Kozy Shack products but gluten-free hot dogs, buns, and beer!! This is just plain awesome. I can now enjoy more than a bag of peanuts or a Carvel soft serve at a game. Although the Mets didn’t have a great season last year, this is more than enough of a reason to give them a chance.

By PR Newswire 03/24/10 - 12:30 PM

HICKSVILLE, N.Y., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Along with the opening pitch at Citifield, the New York Mets home opener marks the beginning of ballpark fare for all consumers – even those afflicted by Celiac disease, thanks to a new gluten-free food cart sponsored by Kozy Shack®.

A partner of the Mets since 2008, and official pudding of the team, all Kozy Shack® puddings and gels are gluten-free and will now be available along with additional food products in a branded gluten-free food cart for easier recognition by fans. The Mets developed the stand-alone cart in response to one of the most common requests from fans, who asked for a gluten-free concession. In addition to Kozy Shack® gluten-free snacks, the cart will also feature hot dogs and hamburgers with gluten-free buns and gluten-free beer. Baseball fans can locate the cart on Field Level in the right field corner, just outside the World's Fare Market.

One look at the buzz on food websites shows that consumers have long known that Kozy Shack® products offer a delicious homemade taste and guilt-free indulgence that supports an active lifestyle. Made with real milk and no preservatives or hydrogenated oils, the Kozy Shack® line of products have always been a perfect snack for those who suffer from Celiac disease and those who are gluten-intolerant.

"Dietary restrictions are a growing concern in the food industry and we have always strived to make our products available to meet all consumer needs and palates," says Kozy Shack® CEO Bob Striano. "We're excited to further our partnership with the Mets and offer fans a designated cart for gluten-free food products. It's a home run for everyone."

A wholesome treat for fans of any age, Kozy Shack® pudding snacks are also sold at concession stands throughout the ballpark as part of the Mets' healthier food offerings which will include more fruits and salads.

Noted as a "Supermarket Gem" by The New York Times , for its ready-to-eat wholesome and delicious taste, Kozy Shack® traditional products meet today's consumer lifestyle. For more than 40 years, Kozy Shack® has been providing the finest-quality, ready-to-eat refrigerated desserts. Packaged for convenience, the products are available in ready-to-serve portions in the dairy cases of food retailers across the country.
