PLANO, Texas, Feb. 21, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Everyone knows opposites attract when it comes to love, but Lay's® is proving the theory also stands true when it comes to food with the debut of its latest flavor innovation: Lay's® Sweet & Spicy Honey flavored chips. During the month of love, America's favorite potato chip brand is celebrating what happens when sweet and spicy flavors come together in perfect harmony – a combo coined as Swicy.

To bring this marriage of flavors to life, Lay's is teaming up with a couple known for their sweet and spicy dynamic – reality TV stars Cameron Hamilton and Lauren Speed-Hamilton. As one of the most adored couples from any reality television dating show, the Hamiltons prove that love prevails even though their personalities are on the opposite ends of the sweet and spicy spectrum. After five years of marriage, the couple is sharing their "Marry Me" meal – the dish that sealed the deal for their relationship. But this time, they're adding a Swicy twist to the viral "Marry Me" meal trend by featuring Lay's Sweet & Spicy Honey flavored chips as the main ingredient.

"As a leader in flavor innovation, Lay's is always on the lookout for the latest trends to inspire our next potato chip flavors," said Tina Mahal, senior vice president of marketing, PepsiCo Foods North America. "From condiments to cocktails to restaurant menus, the Swicy food trend is everywhere now, so we're excited to bring this unique combination of flavors to life in potato chip form for fans of sweet heat."

Now through March 6, Lay's and the Hamiltons are inviting Swicy couples nationwide to share their own #SwicyMarryMeMeal for a chance to win $1,000 for the ultimate date night.

"Trust me – amazing things can happen when a little bit of heat meets a hint of sweet, much like our relationship!"

"Our Swicy recipe perfectly embodies my spicy personality and Cameron's sweet side, making it an amazing meal for our special date nights," said Speed-Hamilton. "I love that Lay's is bringing couples together to spice things up and inspiring them to get Swicy in the kitchen."
