Ready for a delicious new way to celebrate love this Valentine’s Day? Envy™ apples today announced the Love at First Bite contest. Get all the juicy details from the team at Envy apples below:

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.

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.
