The Lehigh Valley IronPigs will add 13 new items to their critically acclaimed ballpark menus in 2018.

During "#NewFoodWeek" across the team's social media channels, the IronPigs introduced the eight new items that will be available around the Coca-Cola Park concourse, as well as five items exclusive to the club-level menu.

The new items include salads, a new twist on nachos, and Fried Cheesecake, which ESPN Sports Business Reporter Darren Rovell said "could be (the) best new stadium food item this season."

These new offerings, as well as favorites around the ballpark, can always be found by visiting PigsFoodFinder.com - the first ballpark-food-specific website in Minor League Baseball. Launched in 2017, PigsFoodFinder.com is a one-stop site for all things related to concession areas at Coca-Cola Park with updated menus, vendor locations, food and drink categories, and the ability to search for a specific item.

Here's a quick look at the eight new foods that will be available around the Coca-Cola Park concourse in 2018:

Pork Barrels: Oversized and locally sourced pork-u-lent pork shank smothered in sweet BBQ sauce. Each pork barrel can weigh up to 24 oz! (Available at Jaindl Smoke House | Located behind Section 118)

Deep Fried Cookie Dough: Chocolate chunk edible cookie dough dipped in funnel cake batter and deep fried to golden perfection. (Lunch Pail Grill | Sections 113 & 116)
