Skittles, the candy sold by Mars Inc.'s Wrigley, made a third Super Bowl outing in a row with its apparance in the 2017 game (see also "The Portrait" in 2016 and "Settle It" in 2015). The spot by Omnicom Group's Adam & Eve/DDB depicts a guy repeatedly tossing the colorful candy into a girl's window -- to a variety of recipients.
Mars again held a joint sales program with Snickers leading up to the Super Bowl, and the candy bar also got a third consecutive ad (the live spot "Old West"). "The Candy Bowl," as it's called, encourages people to choose whether they are Team Skittles or Team Snickers.
