A Cubs owner wants to bring the chichari sauce back to the city, and it’s coming from his favorite coffee company.
Chicago Cubs Owner Joe Maddon has a long history of brewing chichars.
He started his own coffee company in 1997.
Chicharron is currently owned by Chicago’s owner, the late Steve Wynn, and was the reason the Cubs won three World Series titles during a six-year run in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
Wynn is now the billionaire Wynn Resorts chairman and a major investor in the Cubs, as well as other major sports franchises.
Maddon recently spoke with the Chicago Tribune about the possibility of bringing the chia seed to the United States.
“We’re going to be exploring all possibilities,” Maddon told the Tribune.
“I’m not saying I’m going to buy the franchise.”
Wynn, who has owned the Chicago Cubs for 35 years, died in March.
He is believed to have died from pancreatic cancer.
Maddon said he has a strong interest in bringing the franchise back to Chicago.
“The Chia Seed is something that we had in Chicago.
That was the original chia.
We used to grow chia in Chicago, so that’s what we had there.
We really had the chiaroscuro that we would sell in Chicago,” he told the Chicago Sun-Times.
Chiacos seeds, which are typically ground up and ground to a powder, were first brought to the U.S. by the French company Chiacom in the 1930s.
A number of the Chia seeds that have made their way to the States are made from the seeds from the Chiacos plantations in Mexico.
