Adrian Peterson on the box of the "Breakfast of Champions."
Peterson, the Vikings' MVP running back, graces the front of a limited-edition box of Wheaties that hits store shelves this week, and he'll be on the front of two more boxes in the coming weeks.
"I remember as a kid growing up and hearing my parents tell me that I'd better eat my Wheaties," Peterson said in a statement released by General Mills. "I never thought that as a kid that I would actually be on the same box that once had my childhood heroes on it."
"It's an honor to add Adrian Peterson to our growing Team Wheaties family," Jim Wilson, Wheaties' marketing manager, said in a statement.
"Adrian embodies the heart of a champion, whether he's scoring touchdowns or giving back to his community," he said. (Pioneer Press)
