Ocho-o’s coming to a grocery store shelf near you

Chad Ochocinco continues to expand his market reach by debuting the newest part of his budding conglomerate:   “Ochocincos” breakfast cereal.

Yes, you read that right.  He’s got a cereal.  Here’s an image of the box, and the full story from WLWT.

No word yet on whether they stay crunchy in milk, of if Mikey likes it.

Cincinnati and Dayton area folks can pick up a box for 3 bucks at local Kroger stores starting on September 7th.  For those of you living outside the area yet still yearning for a bowl of Honey Nut Knucklehead, you can go to plbsports.com.

It’s just another story in what’s  been a busy year for Chad, with two reality shows,  a music video and numerous celebrity appearances, not to mention the millions of minions following him on twitter, facebook, and ustream.

The good news is proceeds will help a worthy cause:  Feed The Children. Kind of reminds me of Doug Flutie’s “Flutie Flakes” sold in the Buffalo area years ago to help fight Autism.

I suppose we should be on the lookout for “T-O’s” next…wait…that already happened.

Ever the humorless stick-in-the-mud, Coach Marvin Lewis had this to say about the diva part of this complete breakfast:

“No, it won’t be on the Bengals training table. You can quote me on that one.”

Then again, maybe Coach Lew is on to something.  Turns out the cereal is made by a Pittsburgh-based company.  Hmmm….
