Two soccer stars have joined the friendly competition between Cocoa Pebbles and Fruity Pebbles, as the folks at Post attempt to figure out which cereal the fans love more. Olympic gold medalist Alex Morgan joined Cleveland Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving on Team Cocoa, while Oscar Gonzalez of the Los Angeles Galaxy teamed up with John Cena on Team Fruity.
Fans can vote on their favorite cereal flavor on www.TeamPebbles.com or by using the hashtags #TeamCocoa and #TeamFruity.
“We are thrilled to add such great soccer talent to the Team Fruity and Team Cocoa rosters, especially as the sport continues to become more popular among kids and parents alike,” said Sue Fruzzetti-Reich, Senior Brand Manager at Post Foods, LLC in a release.
“Our team captains, John Cena and Kyrie Irving, have done a tremendous job leading their respective teams this year and drumming up team spirit among all Pebbles fans. We are looking forward to having Alex and Omar join the Team Pebbles campaign and rally support among their fans.”
The limited edition boxes featuring Morgan and Gonzalez will hit shelves next month.
As an added bonus, Gonzalez’s Fruity Pebbles will include limited edition Kickin’ KaBluey Green flakes. That doesn’t scare of Morgan, however, who believes chocolate will be able to reign supreme.
“As a lifelong soccer player, I understand the power of team spirit and am pumped to be joining Team Cocoa,” said Morgan. “While Omar has some good moves on the field, we’ll see if Team Fruity can keep up with the chocolate-fueled fans of Team Cocoa.”
