Many potato chip fans may remember a few months ago that four Frito-Lay’s test flavors hit the shelves. America snacked on them and snacked on them hard in order keep their favorite on the shelves. The finalists in the “Do Us a Flavor” competition were: Mango Salsa, Wasabi Ginger, Cappuccino and Bacon Mac & Cheese.
It looks like Wasabi Ginger came out on top as it was officially named the winner of the contest. Those of you who remember our taste test and prediction back in July now know that, yes, we called it. While we did enjoy Cappuccino more than the other two runners-up, we’re guessing everyone else didn’t.
USA Today reports that Meneko Spigner McBeth, the creator of Wasabi Ginger, was declared the winner on Monday at a dinner for the finalists. McBeth will receive either a year’s worth of Lay’s Wasabi Ginger sales or $1 million, whichever figure ends up higher. Not bad.
