Las Vegas Aces star forward A’ja Wilson is continuing to build her off-court brand in impressive fashion

Wilson, who is in the running to win her second WNBA MVP Award this year, became the first female athlete to sign with Ruffles. The promotional picture released with the announcement is a Ridge Twists smoky BBQ flavor.

“Dreams come true for a snackaholic,” Wilson tweeted. “Blessings.”

As her Aces teammates asked for bags, she agreed to the first couple of requests until the entire team eventually asked for a bag.

“My teammates [are] so greedy,” Wilson tweeted before adding laughing emojis.

The Aces earned the No. 1 seed this season and open the playoffs against the Phoenix Mercury at 10 p.m. ET. on Aug. 17 in Las Vegas. The game will broadcast on ESPN. The Kia WNBA Most Valuable Player award is scheduled to be announced on Sept. 7, with Wilson and Seattle Storm forward Breanna Stewart as the two leading candidates.

After finishing her fifth WNBA season, Wilson has been named to four WNBA All-Star teams and averaged 19.5 points, 9.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 2022. The South Carolina native took Dawn Staley‘s college resume to the next level, when she led the Gamecocks to the 2017 NCAA National Championship. This postseason, she is positioned to win her first WNBA championship after the Aces won the WNBA’s mid-season Commissioner’s Cup this year.
