Past Whitecaps Fan Food Vote Winners
In the gallery below, you can take a look at the different winners of the Whitecaps Fan Food Vote since its inception.
Also, while technically not a fan vote winner, any conversation about Whitecaps' food offerings would be lacking without a mention of the GIGANTIC Fifth Third Burger, named for the one-time sponsors of the ballpark.
The big ole' burger included five 1/3 lb. hamburger patties, five slices of American cheese, a cup of chili and generous doses of Fritos, salsa, sour cream, lettuce and tomatoes on a 1-pound bun. If you're curious, that amounted to approximately 4,800 calories, 300 grams of fat, 744 milligrams of cholesterol, and more than 10,000 milligrams of sodium.
While the Whitecaps retired the Fifth Third Burger in 2018, the massive burger lives on in our memories! It was even featured on Inside Edition:
And Adam Richman of the TV show "Man vs. Food" once took the beastly burger on!
