Potato chips. Most everybody loves them. How can you not? They’re crunchy and a little salty and just yummy. And there’s all sorts of different flavors. Did you ever wish you could come up with your own flavor potato chip? Well Lays is inviting everyone to do just that. Not long ago Lays launched the Do Us A Flavor contest. This contest is a quest to find the next great flavor potato chip. Here’s some more information on the contest.
Lay’s just launched its “Do Us A Flavor” contest – a nationwide search for the next great potato chip flavor. Fans across the U.S. are invited to submit their potato chip flavor ideas for the chance to win $1 million in grand prize money or one percent of their flavor’s 2013 net sales (whichever is higher). From now until Oct. 6, consumers can share their flavor inspirations on the Lay’s Facebook page, with the winning flavor being revealed in 2013, the year Lay’s – America’s most-loved potato chip brand – celebrates its 75-year anniversary.
From the UK to Australia, the “Do Us A Flavor” contest has created some crazy creations, including Walkie Talkie Chicken, Chilli & Chocolate, Late Night Kebob and even Cajun Squirrel. Yes…Cajun Squirrel.
I received bags of Lays in three different flavors – Cheddar & Sour Cream, Classic BLT and Sweet Onion. I love the Cheddar & Sour Cream to begin with. The Sweet Onion is very tasty. The Classic BLT does taste like a BLT. I’m not the biggest fan of the flavor of lettuce, so I didn’t include that one in my flavor. Unsure what would go well, I headed to the store and got some other flavors. We mixed some chips together in small paper bowls and had a taste test of our own. Here’s what we came up with.
- Cheesy Barbecue (Barbecue & Cheddar and Sour Cream)
- Salad (BLT, Sweet Onion and Garden Tomato & Basil)
- Sweet and Spicy BBQ (Sweet Southern Heat Barbecue & Tangy Carolina BBQ)
We had a good time creating these flavors, and imaging other flavors we might try to create if we could.
Unfortunately I am a little behind with this post. The call for chip flavor submissions has ended. But, that doesn’t mean everything is over. Judging has begun, and the three finalist flavors should appear in grocery stores in February. I can’t wait to hear what the three finalist flavors are. If you go to the Do Us A Flavor contest site you can sign up to receive an update when the finalist flavors are available, and you’ll be able to sign up to receive a coupon at the same time.
ONE winner will receive a prize pack containing three flavors of Lays - Cheddar & Sour Cream, Classic BLT and Sweet Onion.
