Three Fan Favorite Foods You’ll Go Wild For at the Next Game

You can’t go wrong with the classic cheese curds. Although they may not meet the near-impossible state fair standards, Xcel Energy Center’s cheese curds are one of the best food items available during a high-energy hockey game. They’re the perfect greasy food to enjoy while cheering on the Minnesota Wild. Due to their popularity, these cheese curds can be found at any of the main concessions placed all around the arena.

If you’re a fan of smoothies, your life will be changed by the flavorful Maui Wowis. This food cart near Section 105 offers mango orange, strawberry, and piña colada flavors, and includes the option to mix them together. If you’re feeling festive, you can even upgrade to a tiki cup and take it home with you as a souvenir. Regardless of purchasing a tiki cup or not, your smoothie will be accompanied by a cocktail umbrella.

Since going to a game feels like a treat, you can’t leave the stadium without eating one too. The classic soft-serve ice cream that you’ll find in Section 115 is the way to go. Whether you prefer vanilla, chocolate, or a swirl, you will not be disappointed with the quality of this soft serve. To make your experience even better, it’s served to you with style, using a small plastic Wild helmet rather than a bowl or cup.
