Envy apples Valentine's Day contest is Love at First Bite
Ready for a delicious new way to celebrate love this Valentine's Day? Envy apples announced the Love at First Bite contest. The contest combines the ultimate apple experience with the ultimate wedding experience as couples compete for a $50,000 grand prize package. Contest participants will make a video sharing why they deserve an Envy-able wedding day and what makes their love story unique — all inspired by the new romantic comedy Marry Me from Universal Pictures, opening in theaters and streaming only on Peacock this Valentine's Day.
Packed with original songs by Jennifer Lopez and global Latin music star Maluma, Marry Me arrives this Valentine's Day with Lopez starring as musical superstar Kat Valdez and Owen Wilson as Charlie Gilbert, a math teacher — total strangers who agree to marry and then get to know each other. An unlikely romance about two different people searching for something real in a world where value is based on likes and followers, Marry Me is a modern love story about celebrity, marriage and social media.
Marry Me may be set in the Big Apple, but fans all over the U.S. and Canada (excluding Quebec) can celebrate their own love stories by entering the Love at First Bite contest. And, they'll enjoy Envy's sweet, sophisticated flavor as they do — in their entry videos, couples will carve a perfect heart shape into an Envy apple using only their mouths. Teamwork has never been so delicious.
"The Love at First Bite contest is a chance to savor small moments — with the beautifully balanced sweetness of Envy apples as well as the romance of Marry Me and so many real-life love stories," said Cecilia Flores Paez, head of marketing, North America for T&G Global. "We're excited for the opportunity to share the love and help one couple write their next chapter with the ultimate wedding experience."
Celebrated event and wedding planner Mindy Weiss will act as the host of the Love at First Bite contest, bringing her imaginative spirit and eye for design. Contest participants have the chance to win the grand prize of a $50,000 Ultimate Wedding Experience prize package. The contest runner up has a chance to win $2,500 towards an Envy-able wedding gown or outfit; the third prize winner will receive 100 tickets to see Marry Me in theaters to share with friends and family.
After the contest entry period ends, a third-party judging panel will review all entries and select a pool of no more than 10 finalists. Then, the general public will get the chance to revel in the romance and vote for their favorite finalists. Each eligible vote will be entered into a sweepstakes for the chance to win cash prizes, including one grand prize of $1,000, two runner-up prizes of $500 each, and three third-place prizes of $250 each.
"Watching love stories come to life is such a thrill, on screen and in real life. I have a passion for making wedding dreams come true, and I'm excited to help Envy apples bring that joy to a special couple," said Weiss. "You won't find a more whimsical — or tasty — way to celebrate love this season."
