Saints’ Alvin Kamara fulfills dream, gets own Airheads flavor – (Saints Wire) Saints News

Christmas came early for New Orleans Saints star running back Alvin Kamara. The young stud is a well-known Airheads candy fanatic, bagging a steady flow of free samples and minor endorsement deal. When he was named the NFL’s 2017 Offensive Rookie of the Year, Airheads gave Kamara  a shoutout through a billboard near the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

But things really got going this week when Kamara’s shipment included his own, customized Airheads to hand out to teammates celebrating his many touchdowns.

The personalized shipment for Kamara comes in black and gold packaging, featuring the running back’s signature and face, and per his request are loaded up with extra-strong watermelon flavor. Unfortunately for fans, these aren’t for public consumption. It’s a one-time promo for Kamara to share with his teammates on the Saints sideline.

Kamara’s love for Airheads has been well-documented ever since he began handing them out during games in his rookie season, and came to head when he posed for pictures in the Saints locker room from a throne built of the boxed candy:

So keep an eye out for those distinctive Airheads whenever Kamara scores next. The 23-year old superstar has already hit paydirt 26 times in 24 regular season games, and he’s got many more trips ahead of him.
