Wingstop Is Dropping 6 NEW WING FLAVORS Throughout July

Sure, Wingstop will periodically drop a new flavor or two, but in honor of their 25th anniversary, they’re dropping six new flavors this July.

That’s as many flavors as Infinity Stones, but thankfully you don’t have to scour the galaxy to find these wings. You do, however, have to wait a little bit to try them all, as they’re not all dropping at once, instead releasing two at a time throughout the month.

On July 5, the duo debuts in Lemon Garlic and Dragon’s Breath. On July 12, the second batch drops in a Bayou BBQ flavor and Mango Volcano. The last batch will consist of a Hot Lemon and Atomic BBQ flavor, releasing July 19.

The new Lemon Garlic and Dragon Breath wings

The Lemon Garlic is sure to make you gargle mouthwash for 25 minutes, as it will consist of a blend of their lemon pepper and garlic parmesan, while the Dragon’s Breath will be a blend of their spicy Korean wings, topped with crushed red pepper, chile de arbol, habanero, and cayenne.

The Bayou BBQ and Mango Volcano wings

The Bayou BBQ will combine their classic bbq wings with a dash of Cajun seasoning, while the Mango Volcano sounds like a slightly less spicy version of the Mango Habanero, as it is combined with a sweet Hawaiian drizzle.

The Hot Lemon sounds like a match made in heaven, as they’ll be sprinkling their Original Hot flavor with Lemon Pepper seasoning. The sixth wing, Atomic BBQ, will combine their Hickory Smoked BBQ and Atomic, which just might make it a little more tolerable than the standard Atomic flavor.

The Atomic BBQ and Hot Lemon wings

The wings aren’t coming to the party empty handed, as they’re bringing along two spicy ranch flavors, one blended with Harissa chile, and the other being an Atomic Ranch dip. And because you were probably going to ask them to season your fries like this regardless, there will be Lemon Parmesan Fries available on the menu.

All six flavors will disappear July 29, which happens to be National Chicken Wing Day. If you do buy your wings on July 29, Wingstop will also give you five free wings, and donate $1 to Wingstop Charities to support youth in the local communities where Wingstop operates for every order placed on that day, up to $100,000.

Feels like it’s going to be a pretty wild July for wing fans.

Wingstop’s Lemon Pepper Just Got A Spicy Upgrade

If you’re a fan of Wingstop’s classic Lemon Pepper, you might be excited to know that they’ve added some spice to it.

Wingstop introduced a new Harissa Lemon Pepper flavor that’s covered in Harissa pepper paste and roasted bell peppers. You still get the dry-rub feel of the usual Lemon Pepper, just with an added kick.

Along with the Harissa Lemon Pepper, Wingstop also launched an Ancho Honey Glaze, which will be covered in a southern Mexican Ancho pepper, aged cayenne and drenched in a hot honey glaze.

The two new offerings will only be around through the summer and will disappear September 1, so if you want to give these two spicy wings a shot, you’ll have a few months to work with.

8 Popcorn Toppings And The Moviegoers Who Choose Them

Popcorn is the best snack to have at the movies. It just embodies all that you’re about with a day or night at the theater: slight escapism. You’re not looking to get crazy, but you clearly want to treat yourself. How you do it, though, is up to you, whether it’s well mannered or really going for it. Here’s a few routes to take.

1. Regular

You’re not a wild man or woman, but you make solid decisions. People respect that about you. Maybe you bought popcorn for the group and don’t want to try anything fancy because it may snub a member’s tastes. It’s possible you fear losing your reputation as a reliable person, or it comes down to the fact that you just like things the way they are. A dip or two of butter and a pinch of salt is as far as you’ll go, but even that’s calling it close.

2. Salt

We’re not talking a civil sprinkling here. This isn’t a polite kiss of salt that’s going to delight any and all. No, this is the addition of salt that makes you wonder if heart disease runs in your family. It’s the kind where you spend the movie realizing you might die in your seat, frenzied up with questions about yourself, like why you have this affinity for salty things and how it may be a problem. But you don’t stop because you don’t want to stop. It’s just too good. Salt is life! You’re practically high on the stuff!

3. Flavored Toppings (Butter, Caramel, etc.)

I know this seems like one of the safest moves, but it’s absolutely not. This is such a reckless all-or-nothing deal. It’s like trying to diffuse a flavor bomb. If you nail the ratio, you’re pretty much destined to become a fabled hero. If you add too much, which is all too easy, that voluptuous bag of popcorn is ruined. You then have to buy another one or boldly ask for an empty bag to try and salvage it.

4. Chocolate Candy

Here’s an umbrella move that could mean anything from Junior Mints to a broken-up Butterfinger. It’s all delicious, that sultry yet classic bite of sweet and salty, and yet it doesn’t ring as store-bought. You feel some ownership, like you successfully cooked up a dish without reading the recipe at the snack bar. Personally, I’m a Reese’s Pieces kind of guy, but it’s all pretty killer.

5. Gummy Candy

This is an acquired taste, maybe even simply niche. It’s got a specific taste and texture that you might not be ready for (or even be that kind of the person). It’s probably for people with really strong jawlines. I mean, there is some serious chewing involved here. People are probably going to think you’re trying to kick cigarettes. Don’t be fooled though, because if you are the type of person who enjoys this, you really enjoy it.

6. Jalapenos

This is an underutilized move. It’s got boldness; it’s got sass. Butter and spice and everything nice are at play, and you feel like a king or queen scarfing it down. Of course this combination works, you pridefully think with each handful every time you make this magic happen at the movies. They’ll make a statue out of me someday, you consider, already delusional with pride before the full lights go down. Do work, me, you likely whisper before licking your salty pickled lips.

7. Nacho Cheese

Did you come here to ball or what? This is a game-changer move, or it at least feels like you’re pulling a sly run out of the naughty playbook. “You’re just replacing chips with popcorn,” some yokel might say with a dismissive shrug. Your reply should be obvious: “Oh, I’m just replacing chips with popcorn?” What, like this is an everyday occurrence? Hell no, make them take it back. You did the unthinkable. Where’s your biopic?

8. Tapatio & Lemon Pepper

This is if you’re straight up just down to bring your own gear from home. It’s an insanely delicious combo, but this is you playing God. If you get carried away with hot sauce power, be sure to bring a spoon, because you’re going to have to eat it like cereal. If you’re capable of restraint, bring a bottle of Tapatio, not some measly packets. Go big or go home, you know? Oh, you do? Okay, good. Yeah, you look like a confident person.

See you at the movies!
