Lay's #dousaflavor campaign received 14 million entries. The most popular taste inspiration was bacon.
The four finalists were revealed this week:
• Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese
• Kettle Cooked Wasabi Ginger
• Wavy Mango Salsa
Chad Scott of Las Vegas came up with the cappuccino flavor. The sociologist is also a self-professed coffee lover who told Yahoo Trending that he was surprised he was chosen. Scott thinks he's in good culinary company but hopes that people support his flavor (#saveCappuccino), thinking of it as a breakfast or dessert chip. It does not contain caffeine.
We enjoyed the smooth finish of the chip. As for the others, the bacon smell was intoxicating, the wasabi hit the spot, and the mango was sweet.
All four flavors will be on store shelves in late July. The winner receives $1 million, so there are a lot of chips at stake! Go on and get social media active with the crowd-sourced chips by voting here.
Last year, Cheesy Garlic Bread came out on top.
