Vikings' Adrian Peterson Featured on Wheaties Boxes
A Vikings star scored a spot on three limited edition Wheaties boxes.
According to General Mills, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will be featured on the boxes as the latest athlete for "The Breakfast of Champions."
“It’s an honor to add Adrian Peterson to our growing Team Wheaties family,” said Jim Wilson, Wheaties marketing manager. “Adrian embodies the heart of a champion whether he’s scoring touchdowns or giving back to his community."
The first of the three box designs featuring Peterson is available in stores this week.
“I remember as a kid growing up and hearing my parents tell me that I'd better eat my Wheaties,” said Peterson. “I never thought that as a kid that I would actually be on the same box that once had my childhood heroes on it."
