During Wednesday night’s game against between the Colorado Rockies and the Washington Nationals, I snuck out of the press box with a colleague to try one of the new food items available at Coors Field, the apple pie nachos.
It was her birthday, so what better time to try LoDo’s newest dessert sensation?
It took a little bit to find them but we did. Here’s a helpful hint for you. Go to the Extreme Hot Dog stand by Section 130 and you’ll find them there. This will save you a lot of walking and asking people for directions.
We decided to try to apple pie nachos without the optional cheddar cheese on top. What we got was a bowl filled with cinnamon chips and apple slices covered in caramel sauce and whipped cream. Yes, it’s as decadent as it sounds. You can see a picture of what we got by clicking here.

It was gooey. It was messy. It was delicious.
The apple pie nachos cost $6 and are well worth it if you’re looking for a sweet treat during the Rockies game. We ordered ours right after Ryan Zimmerman launched a two-run homer to give the visitors a 5-0 lead. It helped get us past the temporary sadness of the score.
Here’s what I would recommend. Enjoy your hot dog or whatever you choose for dinner before the game and grab the apple pie nachos around the fourth or fifth inning. They’ll get you prepared for the 7th inning stretch.
Yes, what reportedly started out as a joke has turned into a fan favorite at Coors Field. We weren’t the only ones searching for the sweet treat that night. A couple right behind us remarked about how good they looked and ordered their own.
Like all Major League and Minor League teams, the Rockies are always looking for new ways to entice their fans to not only come to the game but also to enjoy it more. In my humble and calorie-ridden opinion, it looks like they’ve hit a home run with the apple pie nachos.
