Brand Cravings What's New

Skittles Premieres New Sour Skittles-Infused Ice Cream Bars

As spring transitions to summer, so too do snack cravings. Gone are the big bags of sweets that are to be devoured under three blankets while watching movies. It’s time for ice cream. But, as we sit in the in-between period of the change — too hot for a sweater, but not hot enough for a t-shirt— a cravings crisis begins to form. Much like choosing an outfit, choosing the appropriate snack can be a downright challenge.

Enter, Crazy Sour Skittles Coolers, the hybrid ice cream-candy. 

The new treat is the latest in the candy’s ice cream bars, the first of which dropped last February. The premise remains the same: deliver the Skittles experience, but make it ice cream. Except now, the humble Sour Skittle is the star of the show. 

This is accomplished by dipping a fruit-flavored, Skittles-infused ice cream bar in a “sour fruit sorbet.” 

The results can be seen on the Instagram page @newfoodsuk, who reported the find at an Iceland Foods supermarket. 

The response to the account’s post were, unsurprisingly, mixed. But, it’s hard to imagine ice cream and candy not being good together (or at least good enough to try) so this seems like an easy move for candy fiends.

Unfortunately, this is a UK-only product, so any stateside Skittles fanatics will have to find something else to fulfill their cravings.

I’m sorry, Marshawn

Marshawn Lynch Pranks Sandwich Shop By Telling Cashier What To Say To Customers

NFL running back legend Marshawn Lynch, aka Beast Mode, is a legend for his immense strength and sheer hilarity. When Beast Mode isn’t tearing it up on the Oakland Raiders gridiron these days, he’s out pranking people and having as much fun as he possibly can.

In his new show on Bleacher Report, “No Script,” Lynch takes pranks to the next level by punking an Oakland location of Ike’s, a noteworthy sandwich chain from the West Coast. One of the producers on the show, George, is given an earpiece and a job as a cashier for the day. Beast Mode controls his every word through the earpiece, leading to some hilarious interactions with customers.

While a lot of the hilarity comes from the things Lynch forces George to do and say —  think challenging people to fights and informing them he kisses his sister — it’s the customers’ reactions that busts guts open. Some are too stunned to formulate responses, while others roll with it and even burst out laughing, too. Lynch’s pure joy and laughter at watching everything unfold on hidden cameras sets the table for one of the funniest restaurant pranks in recent history.

Maybe next time, Beast Mode himself can work as a server in disguise and do the same thing. That’s a hilarious play that would be right up the gut.

Bar’s Makeshift Doormat Insinuates Colin Kaepernick Lynching

As an avid fan of the NFL, when I first saw that Marshawn Lynch was sitting for the national anthem, my biggest fear was that some poor sportscaster would accidentally say, “Lynch, Kaepernick” and it’d be furiously tweeted and turned into a meme. While that didn’t happen, that nightmare “Lynch Kaepernick” scenario ended up happening at a Missouri bar.

S.N.A.F.U. Bar in Lake Ozark, is in a bit of a snafu after owner Jason Burle reportedly tried to make a statement of his own. Burle is a military veteran who fully honors service members in his establishment, while he, along with a lot of his patrons do not fully agree with the NFL players’ decision to kneel during the national anthem.

That’s all fine.

His form of protest, however, looked a little bit racist.

It’s been widely known that Lynch and Colin Kaepernick are two of the more familiar faces in the protests, so Burle bought their jerseys and turned them into makeshift doormats. Entering customers were able to step on them and wipe their feet in in disgust.

Again, that is also fine.

What wasn’t totally fine, was that the way the jerseys were placed, which made it look like it read, “Lynch Kapernick.”

A passerby took a photo of the doormat, and even got in a heated Facebook argument with the owner, but Burle swore he meant no harm.

“They were placed the way they came out of the box,” Burle told KOMU news. “I ordered them together, we pulled them out of the box, and taped them down. There was no ill-intent.”

If that is truly the case, it was some pretty damn unfortunate placement. Burle has since switched the order of the jerseys, as he wanted to still make his statement, but the hateful insinuation is no longer present.

It’s probably best to give Burle the benefit of the doubt, but that was one hell of an accident.

Marshawn Lynch and Skittles Head to Houston… Scotland?

With less than one week left before the big game, Beast Mode himself rolled through Houston to check out the excitement in anticipation of Super Bowl LI.

Uhh hold up… Houston, Scotland?!

So yeah, Marshawn Lynch hit up Scotland for the culture, handing out his notoriously favorite snack, Skittles to the townspeople, getting history lessons, and asking them about American football’s popularity overseas.

What we would give to see this man have his own show.  Perhaps… a Bizarre Foods w/ Beast Mode spin-off?

The ‘Marshawn Lynch’ Shot Might Be The Most Disgusting Mixture Ever

wse2marshawnlynch

Marshawn Lynch was known for hitting people in the mouth on the football field, and making them feel his wrath The same could be said for the shot named after him.

The Hey 19 pub in Torrance, California is home to the “Marshawn Lynch Shot,” and our Worst Shots Team is still wondering why the former running back would ever drink it.

Bartender Dennis Martin said the shot came about when a group of his customers went out drinking in Seattle, where Lynch used to play. The party-goers said they spotted Lynch at a bar and tried buying him shots. The story goes that no matter what they tried to buy him, the only thing he wanted to drink was a mixture of Hennessy and Patron.

The two drinks are barely tolerable apart, but mixed together, really make for a bad time.

Our own Sean Fahmy and Rudy Chaney tried the shot and it forced Sean to make this face:

marshawn-lynch-00_00_03_14-still002

“This looks like very, very, healthy piss,” Sean said. While Rudy asked, “Why anyone would ever want to drink this, I don’t understand.”

The craziest thing, is that not a lot of work goes into it. It’s two terrible drinks,  straight out of a Tupac song, mixed together. Simple, yet deadly.

Why Marshawn would like this shot is a mystery, but we have to believe it probably contributed to his retirement last year.

Starbucks Now Has A Protein-Packed ‘Beast Mode’ Frappuccino

Screen Shot 2015-10-21 at 11.35.17 AM

If Starbucks is going to make a “Beast Mode” anything, it’s only right to bring in Mr. Beast Mode himself, Marshawn Lynch.

Lynch is an NFL player for the Seattle Seahawks who made the term famous with a hilarious interview back in 2007, and has kept the nickname to this day.

With Starbucks being so easily accessible to the Seattle player, he stopped by the headquarters and started mixing up drinks.

He eventually came up with The “Beast Mode Frappuccino,” a double mocha Frap, with mint, cream and protein powder. Topping the drink is whipped cream with a purple berry drizzle and matcha.

“I’d drink this before a game,” Lynch told Starbucks. “You could get your buff on with this.”

With Lynch also being as a huge Skittles fan, the purple and green ingredients might be a bit of a colorful homage to his favorite candy.

The drink will only be available in select Starbucks locations throughout Seattle and Oakland, and will be around until February when the football season ends.

Of course, when a celeb does something like this, a little something has to go to the kids, so with every Beast Mode Frap sold, Starbucks is going to donate $0.24 (No coincidence that 24 is his number) to Lynch’s Fam 1st Family Foundation.

Overall, the drink sounds pretty solid, and like Beast Mode would say, “It don’t get no better than solid.”

Seattle Butcher Makes ‘Beast Mode’ Sausage with Skittles

Apparently, the Seattle Seahawk’s running back Marshawn Lynch adores skittles.

So, in honor of Lynch and the Seahawks making it to the Super Bowl, a Seattle butcher has unleashed a Hot Skittles Sausage. Named “Beast Mode,” Blue Max Meats’ Skittles sausage ranks as one of the most inglorious mash ups we’ve seen. The recipe itself, is unabashedly straight-forward:

First, grab several hulking chunks of meat

Second, grind out the meat spaghetti
