Skittles Helps Settle Clubhouse Candy “Controversy” Between Jeffress & Smith

Throughout the Brewers Clubhouse it is well known that Brewers pitcher Jeremy Jeffress loves Skittles. And when Jeffress’ mom came to visit last week, she confirmed that he’s always loved them, ever since he was a little kid.

In fact, many fans have started to catch on to this and some have even given him packages of his beloved candy.

However, recently the Five Fruity Flavors were at the heart of a clubhouse controversy between Jeffress and fellow pitcher/best friend Will Smith. Smith, who is currently on the disabled list and did not travel with the team on the first road trip of the season, was assisting me with some social media during a game by tweeting and Snapchatting live from the clubhouse. (You can check out the tweets on the #LeftyBehind hashtag.)

Right before he left for the night, this happened and we caught it all on video:

Of course, Jeffress saw the tweet…

…and later returned the favor by stealing some candy out of Smith’s locker:

Of course this candy “war” was all in good fun, but Skittles wanted to make sure that their tasty treats wouldn’t cause any conflict in the clubhouse moving forward. So, they sent a special package. Here, Jeffress explains what he received:

Here’s a copy of the letter:

Skittles Letter to the Brewers

Jeffress was understandably stoked to receive such an awesome care package, which even included his absolute favorite, Sour Skittles!

A big thank you to Skittles on behalf of Jeffress and Smith for the care package. We appreciate you looking out for the Crew!

Side Note: Skittles are so beloved by Jeffress that he told me that he’s even named his curveball after the candy, henceforth it shall be known as “Skittles” and Jeffress will make opposing batters “Taste the Rainbow.”

During each homestand, we will be meeting with John DiMartini, Executive Chef at Delaware North Sportservice/Miller Park to sample some of the latest and greatest Miller Park fare.

Pastries at the Park

This season, Miller Park has a new pastry chef, Chef Brett and she’s making herself known with desserts such as Lemon Poppyseed Shortcake, the Miller Park Bar, Vegan and Gluten-Free Carrot Cake, and Triple Decker Chocolate Fudge Cake will be available all season long for just $8.

Take a look at our mouth-watering gallery here:

Is this talk of candy and desserts making you thirsty?

Root Beer Floats-$15-$25

float

New for 2013, Chef John, Chef Brett and their team are offering Root Beer Floats made with Sprecher Root Beer.  The floats are available starting with a child-size for just $15, or an adult size (served in the souvenir glass mug pictured above) for $20. Adults also have the option of purchasing the float made with Sprecher Hard Root Beer for $25.  A root beer float at a baseball game?!  Just as American as a hot dog at a baseball game!  You can’t go wrong.  In addition, it’s great to know that it is made with Milwaukee’s famous Sprecher root beer.

Where To Satisfy Your Craving: The dessert display is located near the Home Plate elevators on the Club Level at Miller Park (see photo below).  The dessert and root beer float carts also pay visits to the Suites.  Desserts are also available in the Johnson Controls Stadium Club.
