$1-million bag of potato chips: Lay's Cheesy Garlic Bread wins

Eva Longoria

Cheesy Garlic Bread potato chips beat out Sriracha and Chicken and Waffles varieties to become Lay's next chip flavor.

A chip contest from Frito-Lay that drew 3.8 million submissions resulted in the three new flavors.

Karen Weber-Mendham of Land O' Lakes, Wis., won the contest with her cheesy garlic bread flavor idea. She will receive either $1 million dollars or 1% of the flavor's 2013 net sales, whichever is higher.

Both the Sriracha and Chicken and Waffles flavor-makers will receive $50,000.

The two runners-up will be on market shelves through summer, while the Cheesy Garlic Bread potato chips will be sold through the end of the year.

The chips were judged by a panel that included chef Michael Symon of Lola Bistro in Cleveland and Lay’s spokeswoman Eva Longoria. If you can't picture her chowing down on a bag of potato chips, licking her greasy fingers and picking bits of chip out of her perfectly styled hair, neither can we.
