Has anyone had a new Fenway Frank?

I went to the Sox-Rays game last night and had one. They are bad. I can't understand why they would change it after so many delicious years.

I could tell when the lady handed them to me that they were different. I heard a few other people complain after tasting them.

Yes, they've changed the Fenway Frank:

Winning season and seasoning for local frank maker at Fenway

Now made locally by Kayem in Chelsea, instead of Sara Lee in who knows where.

Re: Has anyone had a new Fenway Frank?

Seriously, the hot dogs at Fenway always sucked. They're no better than what you could get at a grocery store for $2.99, except for the fact that a single dog at Fenway costs about $5 and at the grocery store you get 8. I never buy food inside the park when I go to the game, it's not that good and it's definitely not worth what you pay for it.

Best bet is to grab a sausage on Lansdowne St. from the Sausage King. You can *also bring the food from Yawkey into the park now anyways and access it without technically "leaving" the park, so that's what I normally do.

^So True^

Or that sausage place right outside the Yawkey Gate, I can't remember the name.

I'd rather have Kayem make them than Sara Lee, I don't buy them anyhow. Don't they sell licensed Fenway Franks at supermarkets?

do you mean Yawkey Way rather than Lansdowne Street?

Haven't had a new one, but Nathan's Famous always killed the old one. Hebrew National was better too.

I meant Lansdowne St. for where the Sausage King is:



I then said Lansdowne St. was part of Fenway now, I meant to say Yawkey there. Since the tickets now opens up Yawkey Way where you can get food "outside" the park while not leaving the area and not being able to get back in via ticket. My bad. I do like some of the places on Yawkey still, they're expensive but better than the concessions inside. A lot of times I can get away with bringing a sausage in from The Sasuage King still.
