Create a Potato Chip Flavor and You Could Win a Million Dollars from Lay's Contest

By January 24, 2014

Follow me on:

Have you ever tasted something delicious, then thought to yourself, "hey, this would be even better on a potato chip!" Well, if so, you could win a million dollars cash or even more in Lay's - Do Us a Flavor Contest.

The challenge with this contest is to come up with a delicious potato chip flavor which uses a maximum of four ingredients. The winner will be chosen by a combination of judges' scores and public vote.

The grand-prize winner will receive either a million dollars cash or 1% of all the sales of the flavor you created, whichever is greater. Two additional finalists, who will also have their flavors put into production, will each receive $50,000 cash.

Entry into Lay's Do Us a Flavor Contest is open to US residents aged 18 and up. Enter as often as you like through April 5, 2014. Read more...

Wonder if anybody else out there gets linked to the Internet Explorer upgrade site every time they click onto the Lays Flavor site, thus you cannot vote and or enter a flavor. Some contest???

It’s not that you will win EITHER a mill or 1% of the profits, whichever is greater, as you reported…..it is that the winner will choose to receive one mill on the spot, or WAIT 6 months to receive whatever 1% of the profits comes out to be….(which may not even be a million).

I’ve spent over 2 hours trying to enter my ‘flavor’ and to no avail. It keeps taking me to the Explorer 9 junk. I’m so mad I could spit for wasting my time on a contest, which my husband says is probably a hoax to get flavors, but they have it blocked so no one can win. Just one of their ‘chefs’ will make the flavor.

(13) Deb Gofton says:

I am sorry I missed the deadline as I just saw the commercial today for the first time. I think a Lays Loaded would taste great to those who love their baked potato…bacon bits, sour cream, green onion and chives…wow, what a great taste. even though the contest says its ended, I’d love to taste one as we love Lays brand of chips.

The next flavor of Lays should be; Heart Healthy Lays Chips. The majority of society suffers from Obesity, Diabetes, Hypertension and some sort of Heart Illness. So let’s make a Potato Chip that is high in Fiber, Protein and baked. Eliminating sodium and artificial flavors. So Heart Healty Baked Lays Chips is the new flavor…

February 15, 2014 at 10:26 am
(31) Brenda Brown says:

The new Lays Chip is: Zesty Jalapeno. I have noticed that children loves spicy as much as adults. So a little spiced Zesty Jalapeno Wavy Lays is the one.

My next amazing Chip is Mango Haberno. A little mango(fruity) seasoning mixed with Haberno spice on Wavy Lays baked chips. The new Mango Haberno Wavy Lays Baked Chips.

Another mouth-watering taste is Tangy Lemon Pepper Lays Chip, Baked or Fried. Here you have a mixture of Tangy (Sweet/Sour) seasoning mixed with Lemon Pepper an amazing flavor to devour.

The savory flavor of Cheesy Enchiladas Lays Chips. Everybody loves cheese. So here’s the new Cheesy Enchiladas Lays Chips.

Another great flavor: English Toffee Lays Chips: Society loves cappucino
so why not! English Toffee Lays Chips.

Heart Healthy Lays Wavy baked Chips. Add more protein and fiber and eliminate Sodium. I am getting hungry already.

The spicier and sour the dill pickle the more we eat? Spicy Dill Pickle
The new Spicy Dil Pickle Lays Chips.

February 15, 2014 at 12:33 pm
(33) Brenda says:
