Marshawn Lynch now the proud owner of a custom Skittles jersey (photo)

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch’s love of Skittles has been much publicized over the past few NFL seasons. so much so that during Seattle’s run to a Super Bowl title in the postseason it was announced that Lynch and the candy company entered into an endorsement partnership.

Lynch took to Twitter on Tuesday to show off a gift that has been bestowed upon him as a result of his business relationship with Skittles: A custom Lynch jersey with the #24 spelled out with Skittles. Pretty fancy, although certainly not as detailed and artistic as the Skittles portrait of the running back that was created by Death Cab for Cutie’s bassist.

Let’s just hope Lynch doesn’t get a hankering for some “Beast Mode” sausages and breaks the case and grinds those Skittles down into filling. That would be a waste.

Because as we all know: Candy — except for when it is used as an ingredient in a sausage — makes you dandy.
