The Minnesota Twins and Target Field's food service provider have unveiled the newest food offerings for the year.

"As we have done in years past, we focused on adding local flavor and increasing our variety to ensure that there is something for everyone," said Peter Spike, Delaware North's general manager at Target Field.

"We are certainly excited to welcome Twins fans back for the upcoming season."

Twins spokesperson Kevin Smith said some of the new items are a new take on classic Minnesota favorites, such as a tater tot dish from Darby's.

"Which, today, has been really well-received," Smith said.
