I know Lay’s does this for the publicity so I am playing right into their hands, but the flavors up for a consumer vote this year sound like they would be awful.

There are four flavors in contention this year: Mango Salsa, Bacon Mac and Cheese, Ginger Wasabi, and Cappuccino.

Does even one of those sound like it would go well with a potato chip? I guess maybe the Mango Salsa could, but even that sounds like it would be better as a tortilla chip, not a potato chip. And how in the world did someone think that Cappuccino would be a good flavor for a potato chip? The contest is called “Do Us A Flavor” and Lay’s says it will run from later this month until October, so be on the lookout for these chips.
