14 foods you forgot were endorsed by Pittsburgh athletes


If you’re at the right store (or plbsports.com), you can find Brett “The Diesel” Keisel salsa, Pascal Dupuis’ dijon mustard or Steel City Mustard featuring Neil Walker.

You may also remember the Hines Ward 86 Steak Sauce. How about Jerome Bettis’ World Championship Crunch cereal, mustard, salsa, peanut butter, pickles or BBQ sauce? Or Heath Miller’s Heath’s Big Money Bar? Or City of Champions cereal (with either Hines Ward or Max Talbot)?

Here are 14 more foods you may have forgotten were endorsed by Pittsburgh athletes:

And finally, the Czech Republic leaves us with two mysteries:

1. Penguins defenseman Jiri Slegr reportedly had his own cookies around 1999

2. Jaromir Jagr breath mints? The text translates to “for fresh breath” and “eucalyptus extracts.”
