America has voted, and the newest flavor added to the Lay’s lineup will be Cheesy Garlic Bread.
The flavor beat out Chicken and Waffles and Sriracha in the Lay’s Do Us A Flavor Contest, and Eva Longoria will officially announce it as the winner at a party tonight in Hollywood.
Contest participant Karen Weber-Mendham proposed the cheesy chip flavor, and she will earn $1 million or 1% of the new flavor’s net sales (whichever is higher), according to a Frito-Lay statement.
On her Twitter page, Weber-Mendham says she is from northern Wisconsin and describes herself as a “mom of 3 crazy kids, youth librarian super-hero, margarita drinker, bad speller, potato chip eater, sarcasm user, chocolate addict, banned book reader, smiler!” She’s been Tweeting up a storm with the #savegarlicbread hashtag all this month.
We tested the Cheesy Garlic Bread chips earlier this spring and gave them this review:
“Garlic Cheesy Bread and Sriracha are pretty simple and they taste exactly how you’d expect them to taste.
If you like cheesy bread, you’ll like the flavor in the chips, but maybe not the texture (it doesn’t come close to replicating the experience of eating a piece of a loaf).”
