Chiefs RB Charcandrick West quit Skittles but Skittles can’t quit him

Charcandrick West swore off Skittles earlier this offseason but apparently Skittles isn’t listening to him. I got one of those PR messages that showed off West and his new custom Skittles bag.

It sounded like a funny story earlier this offseason that West was quitting Skittles. Then you heard him talk about it - and saw his 10 pound weight loss (as of April) - and realized he was probably eating a ton of Skittles.

“I’m trying to eat better. It was bad the way I was eating. I was eating candy, Skittles. You’ve seen me eating all the Skittles. My energy level is way up. I feel better. I’m not tired from eating candy right before I go to bed. I feel it’s going to help me out a lot. I haven’t felt like this in a long time."

Perhaps this is a why Pete included him on his list of under the radar Chiefs.
