Made specially for basketball viewing, the new flavors can be tasted in the Full Court Meal

DALLAS, March 14, 2023 — Wingstop (NASDAQ: WING) knows that the tournament is a full sensorial experience with highs, lows and every emotion in between. But until now, taste has been a missing piece. To bring tournament moments to fans’ tastebuds, Wingstop introduced three new flavors: Pure Mayhem, Crunch Time and Meltdown. Serving as the perfect sampling opportunity, the brand also launched a new Full Court Meal with 12 classic wings, eight boneless wings, a large fry and two dips for only $20.99 on and the app.

Adding to Wingstop’s starting lineup of 11 bold, distinctive flavors, the following limited-time craveable flavors and the Full Court Meal are available all tournament long at U.S. restaurants now through April 3, 2022:

  • Pure Mayhem: In an unprecedented turn of events that will shock the crowd, Wingstop’s signature sweet and savory fry seasoning is now available on fans favorite proteins.
  • Crunch Time: A clutch mashup of two fan favorites – Hot Honey Rub and Lemon Pepper – delivered just in the nick of time, this flavor combines sweet honey and zesty lemon in a fiery dry rub.
  • Meltdown: Sure to bring tears to fans eyes during the most emotionally charged tournament moments, this flavor tastes like savory garlic, tossed with bold Cajun seasoning and a buttery parmesan finish.

“We know where flavor fans will be this month – watching their favorite teams while eating wings, and Wingstop does it best,” said Michael Skipworth, Wingstop’s President & CEO. “We’re feeding into the frenzy with flavors that are as bold as the bracket busting, on-court moments.”
