The word is out Meneko Spigner McBeth is officially the winner of the Lay’s “Do Us a Flavor” contest.  She created the amazing Wasabi Ginger Flavored chips, which flew off the shelves instantly.   Wasabi Ginger flavor got the votes over “Mango Salsa,” Cappuccino,” and “Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese.”  Wasabi Ginger gives you that “Wasabi Kick with a Snap of Ginger.”

So all know that this was no easy task to even make it to the top 4 flavors.  Reports have shared that the contest began in the United Kingdom, where Frito-Lay sells chips under the Walkers brand. Since then, it was launched in 14 countries before coming to the U.S. last year. Winning flavors in other countries include “Pizza” in Saudi Arabia, “Shrimp” in Egypt, “Sunday Roast” in New Zealand, “Pickled Cucumber” in Serbia and “Aline’s Caesar Salad” in Australia.

Meneko, is a Jersey Girl.  She is a registered nurse in Philadelphia, and will receive $1 million or a portion of a year in sales, whichever figure is larger.  What a great gift for this deserving family of 5.  So let’s continue the celebration, once the chips hit the shelves again.  It’s so exciting to know that the votes, #SaveWasabi, actually #SavedWasabi!!!!
