Well, it’s official… Marshawn Lynch has signed a deal making him the first athlete to endorse Skittles. In addition to the undisclosed deal, Skittles will donate $10k to Lynch’s charity with each touchdown he scores during the Super Bowl. This news of the deal will certainly add to the Skittle craze here in the Northwest (I mean the Washington area, not Kim and Kanye’s baby)
Skittles is among the highest “Liked” Facebook pages with 25,796,885 likes, literally increasing by the second now. Skittles are regularly sold out at the grocery stores on game days. You can find them raining down at the Clink, served along side a hamburger at the local bar, and even inside a spicy sausage! And if the craze wasn’t already enough, Skittles announced they will be auctioning off a limited amount of “Seattle Mix” Skittles starting tomorrow. Good luck getting some!
