NORTHEAST OHIO MEDIA GROUP, Written By John Harper 07-2015

The “Delly Dog” Served at the Akron Rubber Ducks: A decadent all beef frankfurter topped with ham, salami, provolone cheese and , you better believe, Stadium Mustard.

In his book “We’ll Always Have Cleveland”, Local Mystery writer “Les Roberts”, writes about Stadium Mustard

“Milan Jacovich doesn’t cook very much or very well, though he manages to make himself a Slovenian sausage meal in several books, boiling and then frying them with onions and slathering them with Stadium Mustard. I love sausauge, too- Italian, Polish, and Slovenian – but I don’t eat it nearly as often as Milan does.

I do, however, plaster spicy Stadium Mustard on almost every sandwich or sausage. It’s made locally, and I’ve sent it all over the country to friends who haven’t visited Cleveland in a while and have forgotten how amazing Stadium Mustard is.”

Thanks Les, for spreading the mustard.

Stadium Mustard , served at the Coliseum in Richfield and horseracing tracks in the Cleveland area, was the exclusive hot dog condiment of Cleveland Indians games for many years through 1982 and several subsequent years.”

“This is what the people requested.  If it’s what they want, well we want to comply. We’re in the entertainment business,” he continued, “and it’s necessary to know what the public thinks and wants in order to succeed.”


In a pictorial story about Cleveland, FORTUNE MAGAZINE writes about the Cleveland Stadium: “Where Browns and Indians play, but never together.  Dawgs howl, the crowd roars, and Stadium Mustard is the world’s best.”
