Eat Skittles, Win Star Wars-themed iPods

As part of the promotional run-up to the debut of Star Wars Episode III, Skittles will kick off a "Hunt fro Grievous" online game April 2 with 110,600 prizes to be awarded.

More interesting than the 100,000 Star Wars screensaver downloads Skittles plans to give away is the grand prize: 100 Star Wars-themed iPods. Thereis no image of this limited edition iPod either on the Skittles Web site or the game ticket, however.

Five hundred first prizes--a $25 gift certificated to also be awarded, as well as 10,000 second prizes consisting of iTunes gift certificates--presumably for less than $25--will also be given away.

Kudos to Engadget and for the tips.
