PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Fans that came out to Steelers’ training camp in Latrobe Thursday afternoon got a special treat — a first taste of new, limited edition Black & Gold pierogies, courtesy of Mrs. T’s Pierogies.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Mrs. T’s Pierogies have partnered up to offer black-and-gold-colored pierogies, which will be sold in a number of Pittsburgh grocery stores.

The black and gold pierogies made a stop at Steelers training camp in Latrobe. Employees of Mrs. T’s Pierogies handed die-hard fans a free taste of the succulent squares of dough.

“Free is always good,” laughed a pierogi-eating fan.

“I don’t know,” said another. “First time for everything.”

Mrs. T’s spokesman Wayne Holben indicated that black and gold pierogies are a Pittsburgh kind of thing.

“They’re really excited about pierogies in Pittsburgh, and they’re very excited about the Steelers,” Holben said. “So all we’re doing is combining the two, with a new partnership with the Steelers, and the first ever taste-testing of black and gold pierogies.”

The taste testers were eager to try them, though one fan never eaten a pierogi before.

“I can taste the noodles, but I can’t tell what’s in the middle,” he admitted.

“You’ve got real cheddar cheese,” Holben answers. “You’ve got whipped potatoes in a pasta shell.”

Though the colors don’t change the taste, some fans are already developing a passion for these limited edition pierogies.

“They’ll be awesome for tailgate parties,” a woman says.

“I won’t go so far as to say it will guarantee a win,” the company spokesman says. “But it certainly can’t hurt.”

“I like them,” a young fan concluded. “They taste like victory.”

The Black & Gold pierogies will be available for a limited time in the freezer section of the following Pittsburgh retailers: Giant Eagle, Shop ‘n Save, Wal-Mart, Weis Market, Kuhn’s and Big M.
