CHICAGO, July 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Summer is in full swing and to help fans maximize everything this season has to offer, Modelo is inviting consumers to have an “All In Summer” by partnering with some of the hottest brands to unlock weekly #ModeloTime collaborations. As part of the weekly #ModeloTime drops, Modelo has teamed up with Takis® Snacks to create a limited-edition, temperature-controlled vending machine, combining two of the best tastes of the summer – beer brewed for those with the Fighting Spirit paired with the iconic spicy snack brand.

To put Fighting Spirits to the test, Modelo has an exciting way for fans to get their hands – or hand – on a Modelo and Takis® Snacks Vending Machine. On Sunday, July 10, Modelo and Takis® Snacks will host its “Hands on a Hot Drop” Competition, where one lucky winner will receive the limited-edition vending machine along with help to buy a year’s worth* of Modelo and Takis® Snacks to fuel the summer vibes for the next year.

“Modelo is committed to helping our fans unleash their inner Fighting Spirit and maximize their summer,” said Greg Gallagher, Vice President Brand Marketing, Modelo. “Just like us, Takis Snacks has never been afraid to be bold, so it was a great fit to work with them on this unique experience.”

Pre-selected “Hands on a Hot Drop” contestants will be required to place one hand on the vending machine at the start of the competition and if they take their hand off for any reason— even if it’s to grab an ice-cold Modelo or wipe Takis® Snacks crumbs off their face – it will result in elimination. To keep things interesting, Modelo has tapped former professional football star and TV personality Spice Adams to host the competition, during which he will present challenges to see who has the most Fighting Spirit.
