Remember that just a couple of years ago fans horded breakfast cereal named in honor of a rising star Kansas City Chiefs quarterback.
Mahomes Magic Crunch quickly sold more than 300K units and local grocery chain Hy-vee bragged about putting in an order for an additional 600K when fans emptied store shelves. Given that hindsight is 20/20, it was kind of like a preview of toilet paper hoarding that would soon follow at the outset of the pandemic.
Accordingly and with respect to KICK-ASS TKC READERS who are the most astute observers of human nature in the metro . . .
WITNESS MAHOMES MAGIC CRUNCH HEAVILY DISCOUNTED AND UNTOUCHED ON KANSAS CITY SHELVES!!!
Here’s the word . . .
“There were at least 500 boxes in this stack with dozens more nearby, I guess fans are voting with their spoons and it doesn’t seem like they’re very confident about the future of the QB. I was never able to taste test the cereal when it was first introduced but now it looks like the idea has gone stale.”
Take a look . . .
For those reading outside of the metro, let’s not forget that boxes are still on sale for about $160 in hopes of cashing in on unwitting collectors.
Meanwhile, our grocery store experience hints that a 2 for 1 sale will soon be enacted in the Kansas City metro in order to clear out the unwanted foodie experiment.
