Marshawn-Licious! Lynch and Skittles Announce Partnership
It's a sweet match. Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch and his favorite candy, Skittles announced a new partnership today. Details of the deal have not been released, but ESPN.com's Darren Rovell reported that Skittles will donate $10,000 to Lynch's Fam Fast Foundation for every Super Bowl touchdown he scores on Sunday against Denver. Lynch's Skittles infatuation go back to his Pop Warner playing days, when he mom used to give him the candies which she called "power pellets". Since then, the two have formed a much much publicized bond and Seattle fans even throw Skillets at Lynch every time he scores a touchdown.
Lynch is not the only one cashing in on the Skittles craze. A the Blue Max Meats butcher shop in Puyallop, Washington added the candy to their hot link smoked sausage and cannot keep it in stock. "Beast Mode" sausage sells for $4.99 per pound and is the talk of the town, as King 5 TV reported. Personally, I can't imagine Skittles and hot link sausage as an appetizing combination, but customers love it.
