KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack. And a lot more.

A growing trend in all-you-can-eat seating at sports venues is making baseball's summer chorus sound more like "Take Me Out to the Buffet."

Dozens of arenas, stadiums and tracks have offered tickets that come with unlimited snacks. The seats have been a hit with fans, a moneymaker for the venues and a worry for obesity-conscious health officials.

Instead of paying for a ticket and multiple trips to the concession stand, the ticket includes everything and costs about 50 percent more. Alcohol and desserts are sold separately.

The NFL remains mostly a holdout to binge seating, but there is an option for big spenders.The Houston Texans last year opened the 500-seat Director's Club that offers unlimited food and drinks. Memberships for the 2009 season cost $1,250.

that is alot of food to eat :splits:
