People in Seattle can't get enough of Skittles-filled sausages

Friday January 23rd, 2015
A butcher shop in Washington first starting making Skittles-filled sausages during the Seahawks' last Super Bowl. A year later, sales of sweet and savory links are still booming. 

"We originally did it to put our name on the map, but we've kind of become a destination," store owner Tommy Marshall told ESPN's Darren Rovell. "Not a day goes by where we don't sell it."

The sausage, inspired by Marshawn Lynch's love of Skittles and aptly named "Beast Mode," is exactly what it sounds like. It's a hot sausage with Skittles mixed right into the meat. 

It sounds pretty gross, but it got rave reviews when it came out last year.
