KANSAS CITY QUARTERBACK MAKES A THICK, RICH CHOICE IN ANNOUNCING HIS FAVORITE KETCHUP

CHICAGO, Dec. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Hunt's, a brand of Conagra Brands, Inc. (NYSE: CAG), is proud to announce the signing of pro football star and ketchup lover Patrick Mahomes as brand ambassador. Mahomes revealed Hunt's as his ketchup of choice in a video that ends weeks of speculation around the MVP candidate's favorite condiment. The video can be seen on YouTube at https://youtu.be/CpmOHe2m9VY.      

"I've been a fan of ketchup for as long as I can remember, and the thick, rich flavor of Hunt's ketchup delivers every time," said Mahomes. "I'm thrilled to be joining the Hunt's team."

In his first year as a full-time starter, Mahomes has become one of pro football's most talked-about talents. As fans got to know the dynamic quarterback, they learned that one of his culinary passions is ketchup, a condiment he puts on everything from steak to mac and cheese.

"Who else would you rather have passing the ketchup than Patrick Mahomes?" asked Derek Neeley, brand director for Hunt's. "When we heard football's brightest young talent was also a huge ketchup fan, we immediately wanted him on our roster."
