Antonio Brown's candy dreams came true this week.

On Tuesday, the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver posted a video on Instagram of a custom Skittles vending machine that was gifted to him from the company itself.

The vending machine can hold up to 125 pounds of Skittles and is currently stocked with Originals, Tropical and Wild Berry varieties, Olson Engage, the PR firm for Skittles, told Omnisport.

Brown worked closely with Skittles to create the machine. His signature saying, "Business is Booming," is written on the bottom and has his signature on the top.

According to Engage, it's the first time Skittles has given a full-sized machine to an active NFL player in their home. The company also bestowed Skittles-covered gloves and a Skittles jacket to Brown last year.
