We all remember Flutie Flakes, right?  Athletes have graced Wheaties boxes for years, but there have also been foods specifically named after a certain sports figure.  Pittsburgh has had many foods featuring their own pro athletes over the years as well.  There was Terry Bradshaw peanut butter, Louie Lipps' Lippsmacker cookies, the Mario Bun, the Bubby Bar, and of course, Big Ben Beef Jerky.  Now, 2 of Pittsburgh's biggest celebrities will be gracing the box of a new cereal.  City of Champions cereal will go on sale later this month.  One side will feature the Steelers' all-time leading WR Hines Ward, and the other side features the hero of Game 7 of last year's Stanley Cup Finals, fan favorite Max Talbot.  These 2 guys are 2 of the most likable athletes in Pittsburgh, and it's just one more product on the grocery store shelf to add to the long list of Wheaties wannabe cereals.
