Wingstop Turns Up the Heat with Mango Habanero

New Flavor that Blends Sweet Mango and Spicy Habanero

September 03, 2013 // // RICHARDSON, Texas – Sweet meets heat in the newest flavor to hit the Wingstop menu. Today Wingstop introduces Mango Habanero, created for wing fans craving the perfect blend of sweet and spicy.

In development the past year and available for a limited time, Mango Habanero starts out sweet, and then brings the heat.

“Our fans are passionate about their wings and expect the boldest flavors from us. Mango Habanero delivers that,” said Charlie Morrison, Wingstop President and CEO. “Whether you like it sweet or spicy, Mango Habanero packs a flavorful punch.”

Mango Habanero is available sauced, tossed and made to order on classic or boneless wings.

“Sweet heat flavors are trending on menus, and our core fans are part of that growing trend,” said Doug Willmarth, Wingstop’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Guests asked for a new sauce that turns up the heat, and we believe Mango Habanero is up to the challenge.”

The new flavor is available now at all of the nearly 600 Wingstop locations nationwide, but only for a limited time. “It’s here, until it’s gone,” added Willmarth.
