Hungry fans at Kanye West‘s sold-out listening event for his new album DONDA appeared to have had several food options — $35 USD for kettle corn, $40 USD for a hot dog, $45 USD for cookies, $50 USD for chicken tenders and $65 USD for an assorted snack basket.

An image of a food menu at the album streaming event began circulating on Twitter and quickly went viral. It’s unclear who posted the original image.

It appears that the listed food options were available to order in the stadium’s suites, which can be more expensive than other food offers available to the general public. Even so, users were quick to poke fun at the $65 USD “assorted snack basket” that features gluten-free chips, bars and jerky.

It’s unknown who was behind the sky-high snack prices, though Mercedes Benz stadium has been praised for its typically affordable food prices. The stadium clarified in a statement to HYPEBEAST that the prices were part of a “suite package” meant to serve multiple people in the suite.

“For the Kanye event, as we always do, the general public had our fan-friendly menu available that includes a $2 USD refillable soda, $2 USD popcorn, $3 USD nacho, $5 USD beer and $1.50 USD hotdog among many other items that are the priced among the lowest in professional sports,” a stadium spokesperson said.

Prices for other things at the DONDA event were also notably high, including merchandise that sold for $120 USD and then quickly resold for over $220 USD.

The highly-anticipated DONDA is a follow up to 2019’s Jesus Is KingIt was slated for release on Friday but has since been pushed to August 6.
