Update: It's happening! After a very close battle, Xbox came out on top versus Skittles with 50.5% of the vote, with well over 500,000 votes collected in all. In response, Xbox's Aaron Greenberg promised to make the mini fridges a reality:
"Thanks to everyone who voted, this was down to the wire and thrilling to follow. Now that Xbox won, we will move forward on our promise to make those Xbox Series X Mini Fridges. First one off the line will be filled with games & headed to our friends at Skittles of course!"
Original story: Twitter is currently hosting a competition to find out the "best of tweets" brand champion. It includes companies like Pizza Hut, Wendys, Doritos, MTV and Microsoft's Xbox.
For the grand finale, it's Xbox up against the fruit-flavored candy, Skittles. At the time of writing, there are around 10 hours remaining on the poll. The votes are split at roughly 50% and so far there have been more than 150,000 votes.
Skittles has already played its card - if it wins, it says it will bring back lime Skittles. Xbox's Aaron Greenberg has now countered this with the promise of a "real" Xbox Series X mini fridge.
The Xbox Series X mini fridge stems from the bigger version, which started out as a meme. A much smaller version was recently part of a collaboration with The Rock and was branded with his energy drink, ZOA.
Would you buy an Xbox Series X mini fridge if Microsoft made them available to the general public? Tell us down below.
Big fridge, then we'll talk.
But… lime skittles…
If this happens I told my girlfriend I'd have to buy one. Her response was if I was getting one she way too. Gotta match mini-fridges to our consoles now.
@AgentGuapo Forget lime skittles. They won't keep your Halo branded Monster Energy Drink cold.
I don’t need this, and have nowhere to really put it, but yeah I’ll buy it.
Candy for life, a fridge will break.
Can guarantee they will bundle a year's subscription of gamepass ultimate with this
Get ready for a fight for these as they will probably make less than an hundred and cost a bomb
I really want one bad..
I have no need for this. Yes, I will buy it.
@UltimateOtaku91 "die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the scalper"
Probably depending on price.
Well, this has to be sold worldwide, at least to Norway!
Yep, I'm buying one.
100% buying one
Honestly, I have no idea what I just read.
I don't like how the XSX looks, and I'm not buying in to next gen for a few ywats at least, but I actually really want one of these mini fridges.
As another twitter said, "Skittles are temporary, Xbox is forever."
It'll sell out as fast as the console. I wouldn't be surprised if scalpers will be all over them
