Never before has a candy been so closely associated with an athlete than with Skittles and Marshawn Lynch of the Seahawks. And now, Skittles are responsible for more than just Lynch's energy on the field; they're joining him to create a limited edition "Seattle Mix" pack to be auctioned off for charity.
Acknowledging Lynch as a "super fan", Skittles is giving three lucky fans the chance to win packs of the "Seattle Mix" during an online auction beginning Wednesday, January 29. They'll also be donating $10,000 to Lynch's Fam 1st Family Foundation for every touchdown he scores in the big game.
Unfortunately for Hawks fans, these Skittles won't be available in stores. But The Rainbow has announced that they'll be making special appearances throughout Seattle before the big game, giving away the Seattle Mix. So keep your eyes out!
Auction begins Wednesday, January 29 at 8:00 PM CST and ends Saturday, February 1 at 8:00 PM PST. Join at www.SkittlesSeattleMix.com.
