Earlier in the month, retired Cubs catcher David Ross launched his own breakfast cereal, “Grandpa Rossy Crunch.” It was a part of a series of cereals coming to Jewel-Osco stores this year, branded by PLB Sports.
The series started with Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo’s cereal, “Rizzo’s,” that was released last year, then came out with new packaging after the Cubs won the 2016 World Series.MORE NEWS: Bill For Reparations For Black Evanston Residents Soon To Go Up For Vote; Some Say It's Insufficient And Could Make Things Worse
