CHICAGO, Oct. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The newest NFL rivalry won't be settled on the gridiron, but in the candy aisle. Mars Chocolate and Wrigley introduces 'Candy Bowl,' which challenges fans of all 32 teams to declare their allegiance to one of the company's iconic brands -- either Team SNICKERS® or Team SKITTLES®.
Whether you prefer to "Satisfy Your Hunger" with SNICKERS® or "Taste the Rainbow" with SKITTLES®, fans are incentivized to proclaim their favorite brand for a chance to win tickets to the 2017 regular season NFL game of their choice.
