Lay’s Potato Chip Contest Produces Some Truly Gag Inducing Flavors

Lay’s Potato chip has a contest running right now for a brand new flavor. The prize: $1,000,000. This has brought everyone out of the woodwork with their crazy, not-well-thought-out ideas.

Along with the usual bacon-cheddar-guacamole-jalapeno-taco-pizza entries there were some that were way out there. Keep in mind these are supposed to be potato chip flavors.

Broccoli and chicken alfredo – Oh, yeah, cause that’s what kids are craving to snack on:  dinner

Kentucky bourbon – This is excellent to get kids started early with their alcoholism

Peanut butter and jelly – Now there’s no need for mom to even bother making sandwiches for the kids, she can just hand them a bag of these chips

Irish corn beef – As opposed to the delicious English corn beef flavor potato chips

Cheese cake – Let’s put sugar and fat on top of our fat and salt

Tuna casserole – Uhm, when we open a bag of chips, we want to smell something pleasant

Salmon and lemon – Ditto for the salmon flavor

Cheetos – We already have a snack that is Cheeto flavored:  Cheetos

Yams and marshmallows – I can’t imagine how disgusting this could be. The real stuff is bad enough at Thanksgiving

S’mores – Ditto for this one

Waffle syrup – And this one

Almond milk and almond chips – It’s amazing this hasn’t been done before because everyone loves almond milk so much

Omelette – Because an egg adds such a delicious flavor to whatever it’s in…..oh, wait

Beer apple tea – This individual needs to Lay’s off the beer

Watermelon and cantaloupe – Part of why you bother eating a watermelon is to slurp all its juiciness, this is kinda lost in a dry chip

Ocean fish –  Okay, it’s not a contest for a cat food flavor

Then there were these kinds of entries, chip titles that gave no indication as to the flavor:

Flying Flavor of Lay – The Flavor of Lay? I don’t think I want to imagine what that could be

London Fog – This flavor would be an ancient street with essence of wet rotting garbage and vomit from local pub-goers

Tasty Hullabullo – Not sure what a hullabullo is, but Neosporin might help

Probasies –  This sounds like a milder form of rabies. “Good news! Turns out he only was infected with probasies. No need for you to have a bunch of painful injections.”

Gazpacho – This is cold soup. How is that going to translate into a dry room temperature chip?

Roasted Road Kill –  I think this person was joking, but, then again, maybe not. I did once catch my neighbor’s kids hauling roadkill home around Thanksgiving (true story)

Pebie – No idea whatsoever what this is supposed to be

Death by Chips – These must be laced with flavor of arsenic

Crimson and Clover – Maybe this person doesn’t realize clover is not a spice and crimson is a color

Smokin’ a Bowl – And we have a winner! Marijuana flavored potato chips! Lay’s needs to get right on this now

    • I’m not the Lay’s company. I’m a blogger who wrote about the contest.

    • I saw where there is a contest asking for the new “Doretas Chips”. ALBERTA REID

      • I think a good flavor would be (chiliie/ cheese, ) and another one is jalapeno pepper spicy or mild flavor, white cheddar chesse or have green chips for st patrick’s maybe irish creme , Have pink and blue chips for baby showers and red cinnimon and green peppermint chips for Christmas, Pastel colors just put food coloring on chips for Easter or have pink that taste like cotton candy., blue could be blueberry & yellow could taste like a lemon It will decorate the table the chips would taste good.

  5. Finally, I had the ability to enter my recipe on facebook! I agree with several of you that, stated “you could not get thru.” Literally, it took hours to get thru! It was related to me that, the last day was ,October 5, 2012. Did any one hear anything different? ALBERTA REID MS LPC
