Here's the deal-e-o: Lay’s just launched its “Do Us A Flavor” contest. They are on the hunt for the next great potato chip flavor - whatever combination it might be. From now until October 6th, 2012, 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). You can share your flavor inspirations on the Lay’s Facebook page, where you'll find more information on the contest and the rules of entering. I bet those of you who are moms can come up with some pretty interesting ideas based on what foods your kid(s) are currently obsessed with.
Apparently, there has already been a few seriously wacky flavor ideas entered - like Cajun Squirrel. Yeah, Cajun Squirrel Potato Chips. I don't think you'll find that one on my shopping list any time soon. ;) We like our squirrels live and running around our yard in this family. ;)
So what would you spend the money on if you won? I know I'd pay off bills, and spend a little more money on our new place to live. The rest I'd set aside for a rainy day. Would you travel? Buy a giant statue of King Kong? A custom vehicle for the zombie apocalypse?
Win it! One lucky reader is going to win a sampling of tasty Lay’s flavors to get themselves creatively inspired! You'll receive a bag of Cheddar & Sour Cream, Classic BLT, and Sweet Onion. To enter, give us a wacky sounding chip name that people just might eat. (No using the same one already listed - and no using Cajun Squirrel, either) As long as it's a real food, have some fun with your idea! I'll start off: Orange Tang Ripple Chips.
