Marshawn Lynch’s success with the Seahawks has heightened the popularity of skittles. In interviews, he has stated that he grew up with the candy, often eating it before/during games, and now – as a professional football player – eats them to settle his stomach during games.
In a trip to a local grocery store, I sauntered down the candy aisle in search of the candy to have during the upcoming game. It was sold out! I couldn’t believe that what I heard on the news was true. There were no skittles, small/big size bags, in the candy aisle. I’m sure if I look around at a few more store, I’ll find some, but still. That’s nuts!
