Clarence Frett is about to be 100 years old!
He has been eating Wheaties every single day for breakfast since 1943!
Wheaties came out way back in 1921, and Clarence started eating it when he was in the Coast Guard.
I dump a bowl of Wheaties and put a little sugar in it and put a little milk in it. That’s my breakfast I don’t eat much more than that.Clarence Frett told KCRG
His birthday is January 24th, and on that day this champion will turn one hundred years old and Wheaties is helping him celebrate with his face on the cereal, which is also 100 years old!
Normally that space is reserved for pro sports players, but I think Clarence is well-deserving of the space!
This is all thanks to his daughter, Renee Frett Campbell, who had emailed General Mills to see about making this happen for her dad!
Amazingly, General Mills did it, and what an amazing surprise this was for her dad!
I was really surprised. I’m going to have a lot of fun with it, that’s for sure.Clarence Frett told KCRG
I think this is such a cool way to celebrate an amazing 100 years of life!
He’s very healthy and active. He is mentally sharp, so we will just keep him busy and eating Wheaties!Renee Frett Campbell told KCRG
Keep eating those Wheaties Clarence!
