It’s no Wheaties box, but ‘that’s next,’ says cereal mogul Rizzo

Anthony Rizzo

PHOENIX – Anthony Rizzo isn’t sure who makes it and hasn’t so much as tried it.

“I’m sure I’ll like it though,” said the Cub first baseman, whose new honey-sweetened cereal “RizzO’s” is now being sold by Chicago area Jewel-Osco stores.

“To be on a cereal box is awesome,” he said. “I love cereal.”

From the photos supplied by the store, it looks like a Cheerios knockoff.

Who knows what it tastes like? But what’s certain is it’s no Wheaties box.

“That’s next. Hopefully,” he said of the cereal box space reserved for champions. “That’s the ultimate.”
