Skittles portraits and other signs of Seahawk fever

Posted By on Sun, Feb 2, 2014 at 2:04 PM

The whole state’s gone crazy for the Seahawks ahead of today’s big game. A small sampling...

...Skittles make sense. But good luck finding them — people are reporting statewide shortages of the regular kind.

This Skittles-covered football sold for $5,200 on ebay.

Or how about a portrait of Marshawn Lynch made out of Skittles by Death Cab for Cutie bassist Nick Harmer?

Beer makes sense. 12th Can, how could you resist? (Click Distributing told us yesterday that it’s pretty much completely sold out in the Spokane area.)

...or for the wine folks, 12th Man wine from Northwest Cellars. (The first shipment at Nectar Tasting Room sold out almost immediately.)

Mmmm, Skittles sausage.

Skittles put to use at Dawn of the Donut...

Of course, we're drinking Seahawks colors. (Haven't heard any reports of Blue Curacao shortages, but that wouldn't be surprising.)
