    Wingstop's Hot Lemon, Bayou BBQ, and Lemon Garlic flavor remixes will be available nationwide beginning February 14 through June 21.

    Wingstop will show its love to fans by answering the call to bring three popular remix flavors back to menus nationwide as a limited time offering. Starting on Valentine's Day, one of the brand's busiest days of the year outside of the Big Game, fans will once again have access to Hot Lemon, Bayou BBQ and Lemon Garlic, available hand-sauced-and-tossed on bone-in and boneless wings as well as crispy tenders.

    Valentine's Day marks a hallmark event for Wingstop as fans look to share flavor with the ones they love. This year, fans can stay in, relax, and get Wingstop's bold distinctive flavor via delivery or carryout, now with three of the top remixes, back by popular demand.

    Although the remixes originally appeared for a very limited time in July 2019 in celebration of Wingstop's 25th anniversary, these flavor remixes truly got their start on social media when fans posted about combining two Wingstop flavors to make their own unique flavor. Wingstop gave the remixes a try and decided that many of them truly were a match made in heaven; however, three stood as clear winners to both the brand and the fans.

    • Hot Lemon: This remix of the classics adds the kick of Original Hot to the beloved Lemon Pepper seasoning, creating a combo that's equal parts zesty and spicy.
    • Bayou BBQ: Inspired by the flavor-mixing voodoo of New Orleans wing lovers, this flavor combines Hickory Smoked BBQ with a spike of Cajun seasoning.
    • Lemon Garlic: The Romeo and Juliet of the flavor world – often kept apart, but meant to be together. Garlic Parmesan wings have been united with iconic Lemon Pepper, kissed with savory goodness.

     

    "The fans are always at the center of everything we do, so we're continually listening to their feedback on social media and the demand for the return of these flavors was made clear across the nation," says Wingstop Chief Marketing Officer Christina Clarke. "Wingstop is a top destination for Valentine's Day – a time that's all about who and what you love. We love the fans and we know they love these remixes, which makes Valentine's Day perfect for their reintroduction."

    Inspired by the outpouring of flavor mentions on social media, Wingstop identified thousands of social posts dating back to 2019 that referenced these flavor remixes and asked for their return. As a surprise and delight, Wingstop will honor select fan requests by turning their social posts into promo codes for $10 off so they can enjoy their favorite remix at their leisure, on the house. Something the brand is calling "Return the Flavor" – you know, like "return the favor," but better.

    Wingstop's Hot Lemon, Bayou BBQ, and Lemon Garlic flavor remixes will be available nationwide beginning February 14 through June 21.
