Madeleine Albright Selected For Wheaties Box
For most of us, the topic of famous individuals who have graced the front of a Wheaties box bring up the images of individuals from the sports world.
For example, superstar athletes such as Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali and Tiger Woods come to mind. Or, athletes who have competed in the Olympics, such as Bruce Jenner, Lindsey Vonn and Shaun White.
Recently, the news came out of the latest person to grace the front of the infamous cereal box. And this time, it’s not a sports figure.
General Mills has selected Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright to be on the front of a Wheaties box.
In an interview with CNN, General Mills said they placed Albright on a commemorative Wheaties box because “she is definitely a champion in her field.”
According to their website, General Mills stated:
On the 21st century, there's a new transformation taking place. With the rise of Internet and millennial culture, the very definition of the word ‘champion’ is changing.
Albright even went to Twitter with a photo of her on the Wheaties box, and message that said:
Just finished my ‘breakfast of champions.’ Thank you @GeneralMills! #wheaties.
