Count me among the masses who have no idea what a Cudighi Yooper Sandwich is. But, apparently it is a hit in West Michigan, so much so that the spicy sausage received 6,984 votes to win the Whitecaps' annual contest to name a new concession item at Fifth Third Field.
The Cudighi Yooper edged by two votes the Declaration of Indigestion, a half-pound foot-long hot dog covered in a Philly cheese steak and served on a sub roll. But hold your groans (until after you eat it), because Whitecaps management decided to reward both entries by adding each to the menu this season.
For those not from the Upper Peninsula, a Cudighi is a spicy sausage, and the sandwich will feature a patty smothered in cheese, pizza sauce, peppers and onions.
In all, the contest received over 20,000 votes. Finishing third with 6,326 votes was a Chocolate Covered Bacon treat (it will not be added to the menu).
West Michigan drew national headlines last spring when it announced the addition of the Fifth Third Burger—a 4,800-calorie, 4-pound monstrosity. The team rewarded any individual who could consume it in one sitting with a T-shirt. (Don't worry, the Fifth Third Burger was scheduled to remain on the menu this season.)
