The 3 New Lay’s ‘Do Us A Flavor’ Chips Are…

Lay’s potato chips annual “Do Us A Flavor” contest is back and this year’s finalists have been announced.

The selections this year don’t seem to be as crazy as ones we’ve tried in previous years, but they are definitely interesting.

Your choices in 2017 include:

  • Everything Bagel with Cream Cheese: This one’s got the got the garlicky, salty flavor you’re looking for in the breakfast favorite flavor, but some reviewers say they could use more of it. But that does make this kettle-cooked chip better for dipping.
  • Fried Green Tomato: This wavy chip is supposed to taste just like the real thing: “a little tangy, a little peppery, a little grease-soaked-breading-y.” A man in Georgia who grew up eating fried green tomatoes created this flavor, so if you had them as a kid too, these chips will take you back to your youth.
  • Crispy Taco – We are thinking maybe like Taco Bell?  We love the Doritos Loco Tacos, so now it is time for taco chips.  Reviewers say the lettuce, tomato, and cheese flavors all represent, and you can even taste the ground beef.

These three flavors will hit the shelves on Monday, July 30, and that’s when the voting begins and runs through October 8 on Lay’s website. You can also vote on Twitter and Instagram using hashtags #SweepstakesEntry and #VoteEverythingBagel, #VoteFriedGreenTomato, or #VoteCrispyTaco.

So which flavor gets your vote?
