Chinese Stadium Concessions

I recieved an email today asking about the food at the Olympic Venues. I have been to two events now at two different venues and the menu seems to be the same. It's very basic, but the Chinese people are simple. The menu includes:
  • Sausage (hot dog on a stick - just the meat, not a corn dog)
  • Bread (a wrapped bun, about the size of an extra large hamburger bun)
  • Sweet Bread (kind of a combination of a flattened hot dog bun and an apricot danish, without the icing)
  • Popcorn (popped kettle corn at large venues like the National Stadium and microwave kettle corn at smaller venues like the shooting range)
  • Snickers (the official candy bar of the 2008 Summer Olympic Games)
  • 2 kinds of individual ice creams
  • Bottled Water
  • Coke and Diet Coke
  • Sprite
  • Fanta Orange
  • Budweiser (an official sponsor of the 2008 Summer Olympic Games)
  • Tinsing Beer (an official sponsor of the 2008 Summer Olympic Games)

Of course, no one comes to the Olympics for the venue concessions. They come to support their country, to witness history in the making, and to have a world-class, global experience.
