Million $ Chip Ideas?

Anyone else entered in this year’s Lay’s “Do Us a Flavor” potato chip contest?  It runs for another week or so – I figure one of my four has to at least be in the final four – BBQ Grilled Unagi, Sauce Piquant, Gribenes or my flavor inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket” – Miso Honey.  Give it a try – your flavor could be worth a minimum $1,000,000.  And it has to be better than last year’s dreadful Chicken and Waffle chips.

Your chips have ZERO chance!
Know why???
99.9% of the American Public can't pronounce their names let alone know what the hell you're talking about or what they should even taste like.
The reason Chicken & Waffles won is because they have instant recognition, People know what they look like and taste like and can relate to them immediately.
What the hell is a Unagi anyway?????????
Does it fly or crawl?????" />
Does it come from the Amazon or the Sahara Desert??????????" />" />

Most folks who've eaten sushi know what unagi is. It's freshwater eel and is truly good eats. I'd certainly eat a chip flavoured that way. Shoot, just call it BBQ sushi flavour.

I vote for Gribenes!  Can't find then on a restaurant menu, won't make them...  so I'd be sure to buy a bag or tsvey.

OK, I had to look up Gribenes...........sounds good.....but if it taste like pork rinds, might as well call 'em that.  Hell, even the spellchecker doesn't know them!
 
When I lived in the UK, folks were going through "culture shock" that the EU could actually do away with some of their long time favorite "crisps". Prawn Crisps were the biggest worry, as I remember..so maybe a Lobster or Crawdaddy Boil potato chip has merit

If you ever have gribenes that tastes like pork rinds get up and get out really quickly because the world will be ending almost immediately.

I guess that's why Sriracha was a finalist last year, huh?  Because it's so immediately recognizable to every American chip consumer, right?

My first flavor is old-school Green Goddess. It's fun.

Probably, but if you call it unagi loads of people who also eat sushi WOULD eat it. I sure would. Unagi's my go to sushi, (had some for lunch today). It has a lot of umami going for it.

I like Green Goddess, CC! I highly doubt, Root Beer Man, that a sushi  chip would make it. No offense, but I wouldn't be a fan. Besides, you have to name the chip something that would be recognizable......as a whole.

Dijon Maple Bacon
Takoyaki (Batter-fried minced octopus, sauce with bonito flakes and spicy mayo)
Spicy Cheese Straws
Salami and Egg Mishmash

I'd like to see Lay's produce a Chinese Mustard flavor.  Poore Bros. put out out an excellent version of this flavor, but it was discontinued about 12 years ago or so.
