El Paso’s Aaron Jones Has His Own Cereal Now
Ever since Aaron Jones was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in 2017, the El Paso proud running back has become a touchdown scoring machine in the NFL, and a fan favorite. His prowess on the gridiron and easy-going, fan friendly attitude has captivated Cheeseheads everywhere.
So much so, the former UTEP Miner and Burgess High alum now has his own cereal. “Aaron Jones Touchdown Squares” are currently being sold in Wisconsin grocery stores, and by some accounts is moving off the shelves as fast as Jones racing past defenders.
Described on the box as “toasty sweet cinnamon squares," the cereal is not available in El Paso, but thanks to the internet that doesn’t have to keep you from scoring some (see what I did there?). You can order a two-pack of the popular breakfast food bearing Jones’ name and likeness for $19.99 off of this website. The site says "limited availability" so get 'em while you can.
Jones' love of his hometown, which he honors by flashing El Paso’s area code and flexing his bicep to signify ‘El Paso Strong’ after scoring TD's, has led to the baller endearing himself to El Pasoans nationwide, even to life-long fans of other NFL teams -- this writer included.
A fifth-round pick in the 2017 draft, Jones is in the last year of his rookie contract. He has stepped up big for the Packers, especially in the last couple of seasons, and is expected to be handsomely rewarded in the offseason.
