Postmates And First We Feast’s “Hot Ones” Give Fans A Weekend Full Of Surprises With The Spiciest Hot Wings, 49ers Richard Sherman And The Chance To Win Free Postmates For A Year!

January 30, 2020 GMT

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Postmates, a leader in enabling nearly anything to be delivered on demand, and Complex Networks’ hit First We Feast series “Hot Ones” are partnering to bring the heat for the big game this weekend with the Postmates x Hot Ones challenge. “Hot Ones” is the celebrity interview show with hot questions and even hotter wings, and for the first time, fans can have the “Hot Ones” experience delivered exclusively by Postmates to their door for the big game this Sunday.

Using the code HOTONES from Jan. 30 to Feb.1, hot wings fans in Los Angeles will be able to use the Postmates app to enter for the chance to win the exclusive “Hot Ones” pack, including wings and “Hot Ones’” signature sauces from the show, to be delivered on Sunday, Feb. 2 just in time for the football showdown. Nationally, fans can use code HOTONES in the Postmates app to enter to win a delivery of the Hot Ones sauces.

Here’s your chance to go up against 49ers’ Richard Sherman, who already proved he can stand the heat! Not for the faint of heart, the hotter-than-hot pack comes with a waiver to sign upon delivery for those brave enough to endure the sizzle. The pack includes wings and three “Hot Ones” sauces—The Classic, Los Calientes Rojo and The Last Dab XXX—all increasing in spice levels. This is fans’ exclusive opportunity to try Los Calientes Rojo before its official release on Heatonist.com on Thursday, February 6, which is also the Season 11 premiere of “Hot Ones.”

“First We Feast’s ‘Hot Ones’ has created one of the hottest digital content series online today and is an authority on all things hot,” said Eric Edge, SVP Marketing & Communications, Postmates. “This partnership couldn’t be a better fit and we’re excited to deliver this one-of-a-kind experience to our customers just in time for one of wing’s biggest days of the year.”

“Wings and football are a combination as old as time and, like anything that’s been around that long, was ripe for disruption. Giving fans of both the chance to order Hot Ones wings so spicy they have to sign legal waivers to win them was an obvious whitespace we were excited to team up with Postmates to solve for,” said Jonathan Hunt, EVP Marketing and Audience Development, Complex Networks.
