The syrup-soaked votes are in: “Maple Moose” triumphed as the winner of Lay’s Canada Do Us a Flavor contest. While the decision sparked some lowkey outrage on Facebook and a demand for a recount, the quirky pick managed to beat out Perogy Platter, Grilled Cheese & Ketchup, and Creamy Garlic Caesar.
The decision follows the announcement of the Cheesy Garlic Bread winner back in May here in the US. Although, the folks up north may have gotten the short end of the stick, as many claim Maple Moose to be an abomination with a cheap taste similar to “pork n beans.”
Regardless, Maple Moose is set to hit shelves in Canada beginning late November and Tyler LeFrense of Newfoundland, the winner, will receive $50,000 (CAN) in addition to 1 percent of future Maple Moose sales.
