LA Galaxy’s Omar Gonzalez joins Team Fruity, USWNT’s Alex Morgan hooks up with Team Cocoa

fruityomarAnd, no, it’s not a new MLS franchise.

The cereal promotion begins this month when boxes featuring Galaxy defender Omar Gonzalez and Diamond Bar’s Alex Morgan go on sale at um, your favorite Fruity Pebbles and Cocoa Pebbles outlet.

Here’s more, from the press release:

Since January, Pebbles fans of all ages have been asked to choose their allegiance to Team Fruity or Team Cocoa. Online, fans can share their support for their favorite Pebbles flavor by visiting and downloading an interactive app encouraging fans to vote, take photos, and play minigames. By completing simple online challenges and sharing them through Instagram using their team’s hashtag (#TeamFruity or #TeamCocoa), fans become eligible to win prizes such as gift cards, iPads, or Alex Morgan and Omar Gonzalez signed merchandise.


Fun fact, for what it’s worth, from the press release: Omar’s Fruity Pebbles boxes will feature limited edition Kickin’ KaBluey Green flakes.

“Joining Team Fruity is a dream come true for a flavor-seeking fanatic like me,” Gonzalez is quoted as saying, apparently with a straight face. “I’m prepared to go head-to-head with Alex and Team Cocoa with the hope of helping Team Fruity take the lead as the most well-liked Pebbles flavor – even if it means going into extra time!”
