The World’s Most Famous Arena is no stranger to controversy, be it via Knicks basketball, Rangers hockey, or the countless other sporting events held there. But one item on the food menu is making waves in ways that would put Bruno Sammartino’s title loss to Ivan Koloff to shame.
Darren Rovell of The Action Network was the first to reveal that Madison Square Garden will start selling “Cheetos Ice Cream Sundaes” at Knicks games this year.
It’s as odd as it sounds, and not exactly the most appetizing treat ever conceived.
Here’s a picture of the Cheetos Ice Cream Sundae:

As strange as the food item may sound, the Knicks are far from the first organization to have the idea. Back in 2018, an ice cream shop in California unveiled a “Hot as Hell” ice cream flavor consisting of vanilla ice cream and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.
But it should come as no surprise that the fan reaction has been swift and mostly vicious:
Is that just so the Knicks and Rangers are no longer the worst things in that arena?

Knicks deserve 0-82 for this.

Darren this is disgusting. Please do not post this on my timeline

Tell Dolan to stay off the WEED!

Dolan playing the long game. Get the opposing team to eat this, they get sick and don't play.
It's so simple

No doubt there will be people out there who want to eat it. If not for the love of Cheetos and ice cream, than for the simple curiosity of it.
But if it tastes anywhere near as bad as the Knicks played last year, save your money.
