The good old, inexpensive standby that can last the whole game if you wanted to, peanuts, ranked second with a score of 39.

Candy of all varieties is a close third with a score of 38, followed by nachos (37) and any kind of sandwich (19) and tacos (also 19) to round out the top five.

Rounding out the top 10: popcorn (13), French fries (11), burger (5) and - rather shockingly - the great American ballpark food, the hot dog,  came in 10th.
