Skittles has released a limited edition bag of candy called the "Seattle Mix," in honor of Seattle Seahawks' running back and former Cal star Marshawn Lynch.

Lynch and the candy have had close ties these days. Apparently Lynch's mom used to give him Skittles as a boost during his early football playing days, according to ESPN.

The bag will contain only blue and green candies and be given out this week.
