ST. LOUIS, MO (KFVS) - It’s gotta be the salsa!

Now, you too can try the good luck charm of Cardinals' slugger Matt Carpenter.

Schnucks announced on Monday, September 10 the Bueno Mojo Salsa will be available in St. Louis-area stores on Thursday, Sept. 13. It’s inspired by Carpenter’s homemade version.

Carpenter started making the magic salsa himself, using ingredients from his garden. He went on to start a home run streak, and the team won several series, which led to, he says, “eating unhealthy amounts of salsa.”

He even shared it with the team.

The Cardinals kick off a three-game series with the Pittsburgh Pirates at Busch Stadium on Monday night.

The salsa is not available in the Cape Girardeau Schnucks yet but an employee in the grocery department says they’re working on it.

The Carbondale, Illinois store is not selling the product at this time.
