What’s almost as good as winning the Stanley Cup? Filling that cup with awesome things, like food (and babies).
On June 13th, 2014, the LA Kings tied up the Stanley Cup Finals in Game 5 with a 4 to 1 series win over the New York Rangers. Ever since then, it’s been a nonstop party, and the Twittersphere has exploded with photos of the Stanley Cup filled with meatballs, babies, M&Ms, and the like.
To commemorate, we thought we’d look back at the food and drinks that have filled the championship trophy since the Kings’ victory.

We love a sport that has fun and doesn’t take itself too seriously—even though the game is serious business.
