The St. Louis Cardinals infielder Matt Carpenter and grocer Schnucks has partnered to bring Carpenter’s salsa recipe to store shelves. Beginning this Thursday shoppers be able to buy Carpenter’s Bueno Mojo Salsa at St. Louis area Schnucks stores. The salsa will be available in the deli section of any St. Louis-area Schnucks store for $6.99.
The salsa is credited by many for the Cardinals winning streak. According to the story, fellow player Adam Wainwright planted a garden in his yard this summer. Carpenter combined some of Waino’s vegetables to create a secret recipe to bring along to a July series against the Chicago Cubs. He set a record during that series with a streak of 12 extra base hits in a row. Several other Cardinals have been eating the salsa over the last two months and now the team is now in the top 3 for the National League Central Division.
