Marshawn Lynch lands monster marketing deal with Skittles; Skittles makes Seattle MIX edition
Marshawn Lynch landed a deal with the candy that he has been given since he was a pop warner running back. The candy his mother once called “Power Pellets” will now sponsor Lynch.
It is the first time Skittles has ever sponsored a player, and they feel it was a great deal, because they will donate 10,000 dollars to Marshawn’s FamFirst Foundation for every touchdown he scores on Super Bowl Sunday.
Skittles will also give Marshawn some monetary compensation, but the coolest thing of this deal is the fact that the Seahawks will have their own candy for a limited time.
