PARMA, OH - Sure Cavs fans can show their spirit wearing a t-shirt or a cap, but how about by eating a meal that's fit for a "King"?

The ladies at Rudy’s Strudel in Parma are busy making pierogies .

But, these aren't just ordinary pierogies. These are LeBron James-inspired pierogies. They are being made in time for the all-important Game 7 against Golden State Sunday night.

The dumpling is filled with chicken, broccoli and cheese, which is considered some of LeBron’s favorite food to eat on game days.

“How many athletes have a sneaker? You could be on a Wheaties box, but who has a pierogi? Right? LeBron James does,” Rudy’s Strudel Co-Owner Lidia Trempe said.

The Hastings family came from North Royalton to buy some LeBron pierogies. "We're big Cavs fans. We wanted to surprise daddy with them and see how they are – cuz they sound really yummy," Michelle Hastings said.

Cavs fan Wayne Mallz also picked up a dozen pierogies. “They’re nice and heavy and they are good. And, they'll bring good luck -- cuz if LeBron likes them, we like them," he added.

News of the LeBron-inspired pierogies being sold at Rudy’s Strudel is spreading on Facebook and by word of mouth. They sell for $7.25 a dozen.
