Adrian Peterson to Appear on the Next Wheaties Box

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffAugust 12, 2013

Adrian Peterson has already accomplished more than most NFL running backs. Now he can add one more accolade to the list: gracing the cover of a Wheaties box.

There are three different boxes that will be available, the first of which is pictured below and will hit shelves next week. 

According to the press release, Wheaties said Peterson serves as, "an inspiration both on and off the field."

"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. I am blessed and fortunate to have such an incredible honor. I would like to remind all of the kids that they better eat their Wheaties."
