Breakfast for Sneakerheads + Michael Jordan’s Best Wheaties commercials & Top 10 Boxes
I’ve never been a Wheaties person and no matter how many times MJ appeared on the box or on TV and told me “I better eat my Wheaties” I always passed up the bland flakes for a more sugary one like Frosted Flakes (That Vince Carter once endorsed). I’ll admit some of the goodies like the MJ posters, calendars, basketball cards and basketball offers were tempting but I’ll take some maple syrup on french toast or waffles any day…especially if the waffles are shaped like sneakers.
Let’s take a look back at MJ’s best Wheaties commercials and Top 10 boxes that graced the grocery store aisles my Publix and Winn-Dixie.
