“I’m excited to release Chubb Crunch,” says Chubb. “It’s always been a dream to have my own cereal, especially one that benefits a cause that is close to my family.”

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Chubb Crunch benefit First Candle, an organization committed to eliminating Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and other sleep-related infant deaths through education, while providing support for grieving families who have suffered loss.

“Nick’s amazing abilities on the field are matched by his community focused efforts off of it. Nick is exactly the type of player and person we strive to work with,” says Troy Witt, Director of Marketing and Partnerships for PLBSE, a company that has created unique brands and lines for athletes and entertainers for more than 30 years.
