(Skittles celebrates National Gummi Day)

In celebration of the new Skittles GummiesMars Wrigley’s Skittles will unveil the first-ever “Gummi Sanctuary” on National Gummi Day (July 15). This Sanctuary will playfully provide refuge to all squishy gummi animals – from worms and bears to sharks, fish and flamingos – and help keep them from ending up in a candy bowl…or worse.

Beginning today, SKITTLES is asking gummi fanatics to visit and sign the “Squish the Rainbow” pledge to end the consumption of gummi animals by treating themselves to new Skittles Gummies instead, which feature the brand’s iconic round form for a delightfully soft chew.

Anyone who signs the pledge will automatically be entered for the chance to win free Skittles Gummies to satisfy their desire for delicious gummies.

On July 15, the public can virtually attend the grand opening of the Skittles Gummi Sanctuary to see how their pledge support is helping gummi animals around the country safely enjoy National Gummi Day.

Attendees will also get to explore the sanctuary’s unique lush habitats, such as the Squishy Fishy River and Yummy Gummi Worm Garden and witness beloved gummi animals live their best lives – protected and in peace.
