The United States thought we were doing okay, even a bit fancy, with three types of chips released in the past year: cheesy garlic bread, Sriracha, and chicken and waffles were all created by fans and promoted in a contest. The best-selling chip would become their new flavor, and their creator would receive a chunk of the profits so far and for the length of the product.
Canada followed suit, and introduced four more flavors to see what would sell. According to Foodbeast, their four flavors are
- Creamy Garlic Caeser
- Grilled Cheese & Ketchup
- Maple Moose
- Perogy Platter
Obviously, two parallels can be drawn. Maple Moose may be a bit reminiscent of Chicken & Waffles, while Grilled Cheese & Ketchup may share some cheesy flavorings with Cheesy Garlic Bread.
The successful chip will earn their creator $50,000 and 1% of the profits from now on.
South of the Canadian border (read: the United States) has decided to actually bring back the flavors that didn’t win the contest. While Cheesy Garlic Bread won the contest and appears to be a permanent-enough member of the rotation, Sriracha and Chicken & Waffles are returning to shelves, Foodbeast reports.
They’ll probably be the first in line to go (unless Lay’s decides they don’t want to have someone profiting off of their chips anymore) next to tried and true flavors, but if you missed them the first time, here’s a chance to go for them again.
If America could get the four Canadian flavors as an import, that’d be all the better.
