I look forward to this contest every single year. I think it’s brilliant and it’s always so fun to see what creative chip options people come up with.
If you don’t know how it works, every year Lays has people submit chip flavors to be entered in their contest “Do Us A Flavor”. 3 chip flavors get put into circulation and then we the people vote on which flavor we like the most. The person who created the most voted flavor, wins 1 million dollars. Some of my favorites have been Ginger Wasabi, Chickn and Waffles (although they gave me a serious stomach ache) and Biscuits and Gravy.
Here are this years chip flavors along with their descritions according to Delish…
- Everything Bagel with Cream Cheese – This one’s got the got the garlicky, salty flavor you’re looking for in the breakfast favorite flavor, but some reviewers say they could use more of it. But that does make this kettle-cooked chip better for dipping.
- Fried Green Tomato – This wavy chip is supposed to taste just like the real thing: “a little tangy, a little peppery, a little grease-soaked-breading-y.” A man in Georgia who grew up eating fried green tomatoes created this flavor, so if you had them as a kid too, these chips will take you back to your youth.
- Crispy Taco – How is this not already a flavor? Reviewers say these crispy chips taste “shockingly close to a Taco Bell taco,” so what more can you ask for? They say the lettuce, tomato, and cheese flavors all represent, and you can even taste the ground beef.
Normally I can tell what flavor I’m going to LOVE and this time I think I’m going to love all 3. The flavors hit shelves on July 30th and you’ll be able to vote on the Lays website through October 8th. See a picture of each bag HERE.
