Breakfast of Champions

What do I have in common with Mary Lou Retton, Bruce Jenner and Michael Phelps?

You may think it is my fabulous physique and obvious athletic grace, but alas, those are coincidental.

I am going to be on a cereal box.

Next week.

I kid you not.

Many months ago I implored my blog readers and Facebook friends to comment on my blog to earn boxes of Cheerios for my local food bank - remember?

In addition to helping feed those in need, ShopRite and General Mills offered participating bloggers the opportunity to have their mug on specially marked boxes of HoneyNut Cheerios. So, for those of you in ShopRite's home markets (I think the tri-state area) bring your magnifying glass to ShopRite the week of January 24th and seek me out. For those of you outside of the range, they are sending me a jpeg of the box and I will share that next week (I know, the suspense is killing me too).

And, finally, for those of you green with envy, I have good news. You, too, can be featured on a cereal box!

ShopRite Partners In Caring, together with General Mills, has launched a video contest, Expressions of Hunger, that challenges everyday people to submit videos using song, poetry, dance or dramatic reading that creatively express the plight of the hungry or offer solutions to the issue of hunger. Up to six grand prize winners will have their stories and photos featured on a special-edition Cheerios box available exclusively at ShopRite stores in September 2010!

Head over to for the complete contest rules.

Are we supposed to call America's most wanted if we spot you?
