What is the name of this certain product? “Beanee Weenies”.
The legend who was and still is constantly featured in Gatorade, McDonalds, and Nike commercials just couldn’t find it within himself to say he eats weenees.
The story coming from Sports Illustrated quoted MJ saying:
“Two or three years ago Quaker Oats came to me to endorse Van Kamp’s pork and beans — Beanee Weenees, I think it was called,” Jordan said. “You ever heard of Beanee Weenees pork and beans?
