Like it’s not cool enough already to be Derrick Rose, the superstar point guard of the Chicago Bulls.
Word has gotten out that Mr. Rose is a huge candy fan. Like, Willy Wonka-level lover of candy. Particularly, dude likes Skittles. So the Skittles people (they’re owned by Mars) found out and built Rose a customized Skittles machine for his house, and have promised to fill it for the next three years.
Seriously, how cool is that? If I had a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup machine in my house, I might never go outside.
I hope the Bulls’ team dentist knows where Rose lives. He may be over there a lot.
