Lay’s® Announces Top 3 Finalists For The Million Dollar Prize In The LAY’S® Do Us A Flavor™ Contest

Lay's® Potato Chips held a press conference today to announce it's top three qualifiers for their Make a New Lay's® Flavor million dollar prize that they will be given away on November 1st.El Paso, TX — Lay’s® Potato Chips held a press conference today to announce it’s top three finalists for The LAY’S® Do Us A Flavor™ Contest. The first place winner will receive a million dollars that will be given away February 29th, 2013.

Lay’s® president Bill Hanover said it was a tough decision picking the top three flavors. “We received millions of great submissions and tasty flavors, but in the end I think we picked the best three. Now it’s up to the public to decide who gets the million dollars!”

Joyce Barth was one of the entrants in the contest and said she was sad to hear that she was not one of the top three chosen. “I really thought my Apricot Chipotle had a chance,” Barth said. “Well at least I hope the prize goes to a good person who really deserves the money.”

Paul Horner from Laveen, Arizona is one of the top three finalists. He explained to reporters today about his potato chip entry and what his thought process was behind creating it. “My three ingredients for my ‘Mitt Romney Hates You’ potato chip was ‘Poor People’, ‘Blacks & Latinos’ and the ‘LGBT Community’,” Horner said. “Then I started thinking that flavor would be pretty gross. That’s kind of like what a cannibalism flavor would taste like if there was one. So I decided to change the flavor to more of an evil, lying, anti-christ flavor with each bite thinking it’s better than you are. Well, that’s what the judges liked I guess because now I’m one of the top three finalists. That million dollar prize is mine!”

Here are the top three choices Lay’s® made available for the voting public. The top voted on flavor by February 29th, 2013 at midnight will receive the million dollars. You must have a Facebook account to vote. Choose wisely!

Mitt Romney despises you
Mitt Romney doesn't like you

    This is a tough decision. I want to pick Mitt Romney Hates You flavor, but I’m thinking Mitt Romney Despises You would taste a little better. That’s my pick

    • Carol Ann Jernigan says:

      I am mortified that Lays did this; this was pre-planned crime, and I believe that Lays has benefited from the political arena with millions. It is difficult for me to write this because I’m so angry–angry enough to begin a civil law suit comprised of all those who followed along. We were like sheep looking for greener pastures but finding that we’ve been thrown into the slaughter house.

      Anybody who is interested in joining this suit, let me know; carolannlives@yahoo.com.
      I went to Meijers a couple of weeks ago and found one of my suggestions in the chip aisle! Lays said it had been released in January of this year but it took 11 months to reach the store! I saw another flavor that was similiar as well; mine was “mildly hot” theirs was “slightly salted.” Never saw any of their flavors having an adjective in the name.
      The most important and humiliating issue with this criminal act is that we were not told to submit anything with a political connotation. I AM NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS! i’ll begin researching everything again then take it to an attorney for discussion. If you want to join, do so; if not, ask your own attorney or give me the name of one you know is capable of handling this. We’ve been “layed” without so much as a kiss.

      • Carol Ann Jernigan says:

        Another thing–this was name a new flavor contest; the only flavor indicated in the final three reeks with bull. Those who did not enter will not feel as strongly about this as those of us who did. It’s emotional rape.

        • Carol Ann Jernigan says:

          Mr. Bill Hanover, president of the coital company, said the three were the best “flavors” is he out of his mind? Tell me, sir, what the flavor is? Just tell me.

          • The flavors are “Bullcrap”, “Lays is Lame”, “How stupid can a company really be?”

          • Total load of crap. I voted for a Rueben sandwich flavored chip which would be very popular if you just gave the chip a salty-corned beef flavor. It would have made a nice looking bag too, with a marbled rye fat juicy sandwich on the front. That Mitt Romney stuff is the most lame thing I’ve ever heard of.

        • You are batshit insane. You don’t deserve a damn thing. Talking about suing someone? I’m sure they took your entry and release an entirely new product in a matter of weeks. God, some people are brain dead…

          • Everyone who submited a flavor idea should get a couple grand for the time spent. I would have not gave a crap if it was a real contest and I lost but I was led to believe I had a chance to win a real contest. So do the math 10 million entries at 2 grand per entery = Bankrupt for lays Potato chips. and they deserve it to. By By lays scum *ags

        • Judy Meredith says:

          I to was a fool for submitting 154 flavors!!!! I will no longer eat or buy Frito Lay products!!! The president did the WRONG THING in picking this as a winner!!! If there is enough complains he should rethink the winner!!!

          • kimberly black says:

            I submitted 103 flavors and put lots of time and effort into the flavors….I feel like I wasted my time because I feel that our flavors were never considered. I’m going to submit my flavors to other companies.

          • Natazia Chambers says:

            Crazy!!! I’m furious!!! 2 of the flavors that won I had actually submitted, how do they even begin to narrow down who won! For all I know I could of won they took my ideas and had an imposture of theirs be the “winner” I feel cheated. 100% this was a scam and this could be a lawsuit in which I am thinking about taking actions! And FYI Lays suck!!! Worst chips on the planet that’s why they need us to give them ideas!

      • Tammy Austin says:

        Yes, I agree with you. I would like to join this lawsuit, this was false advertisement. A hoax at best. My flavor was Avocado and Pepper

      • What a joke….are you kidding me?????? I thought it was a legitimate contest. Guess not, I think we should all boycott Lays! What a SCAM. Lays I thought you were better than that. So disappointed. :(

      • This is the most stupid shit I have ever seen. Lays should be ashamed of their self, this is so unprofessional. Whomever thought this would be a good idea should be fired. I will stop buying your product now. This is despicable.

      • Finding out this was just a ruse is like a slap in the face. I spent hours thinking about new flavors to submit, and all for nothing except new ideas stolen from the consumers who participated with no compensation. I’ll join your suit. I guess customer loyalty means nothing nowadays. But the person (people) that came up with this SCAM should be fired!!!!

      • Emily Bacsik says:

        My 24 yr old son, John, and myself are in complete and total agreement with you! We are definitely “on-board” with your idea of a class action lawsuit. Please advise.

        Emily Bacsik
        John Bacsik III

      • They advertised this as a true contest on TV. They should be held liable. I say class action suit for all who entered. Especially since they are now putting out the ideas we had!!! I am in with Caroline. Law suite as false advertisement to the public!!!!!!!!!!! Let us know what we can do to help!!

        • So your hate for Mitt Romney was the key to being a winner. I don’t like him either. When did he become a flavor? I am very very disappointed in your business ethics. No wonder there was no follow up commercials on this contest. Frito Lay should be ashamed!!!!

      • i for one will never buy Lays product again. I will pay less money for a better product that does not deceive the public.

      • This needs to be exposed to the media.a show like 20/20 or something.They need to interview the exec’s at lays and call them on their scam for public diception. Interview the big shots and have them explain how that can be a flavor.I would not touch thier product if i was on an island starving.

      • Elizabeth says:

        I agree with the lawsuit…We were duped…Lays said name a FLAVOR – not a politician you don’t like…I honestly took them seriously in their contest…Why didn’t they say the contest was – state your political agenda…It’s not funny and Eva Longhoria and Chef Simon should be ashamed to have their name associated with this…

    • Carol Ann Jernigan says:

      Anyone who partakes in this so-called finalist voting is just as sick as Lays. What the hell is wrong with you? Did you get paid off too?

      • JEFFERY MILLER says:

        I can not believe layes will market, make and sell any chip with Mitt Romney name on it no matter what the flavor,

      • Lisa Fish says:

        I am disappointed that Lays decided for their top three contestants are all towards a political take on this contest. I was under the impression that Lays was looking for their newest flavor of chips not looking at the political arena for names of flavors to make a political statement, this is not what i expected and as a result i will no longer purchase any Lays products.

      • Judy Meredith says:

        I hope the media puts this on the news!!! Lay’s should be sued! Count me in on the suit.

    • Adele Linda Guiteras says:

      I am offended as well! There was never a mention of a political affiliation! I did what they asked for..NEW ingredients for a NEW flavor! How could LAYS do this to us , who took this seriously ?? I have ONLY purchased Lays for years ……NOW > I will go to UTZ or HERRS or Store Brand…..Lays will NOT get any more of my business. Just can not believe this insult to our intelligence!! Already the 3 titled bags look ridiculous……with Mitt Romeny’s name on it! Oh please ~ Lays > you really messed this up !!!!

    • Are you kidding? Anything with Mitt Romney’s name on it is going to taste like shit one way or another!

    • Jeff Davis says:

      You know your reply is just trying to legitimize this thing. Jelly Bellys had a jelly bean that was intentionally vomit flavored. I guess this is lays answer to that.

    • This is a fake site.

      • Derrick J. says:

        A fake site? You’re reading it. It’s online. It has a web hosting account and domain name. You can reach it by going to http://www.superofficialnews.com.

        How is it a fake site? What drugs have you been taking? Just curious, I’m not here to judge.

        • Derrick, it’s not that this is a fake site, but it’s a site that … well, Lay’s did NOT choose three political chips as their finalists.

          • Derrick J. says:

            I don’t know. It looks pretty legit to me.

            Plus, I like Lay’s. I trust em’

            I would eat some anti-Mitt Romney flavored chips, f*ck it

        • Hahah ya it sure is . I can also go make a news site and talk
          All the bull i want. U gonna believe that as well

  2. This is bullshit! These are the only options we have to vote for?”!! WTF. I demand justice!

  3. ANONYMOUS says:

    WHAT A JOKE!! WASTE OF TIME!!!!!!!! REALLY LAYS??!!!! UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS WHAT YOU NARROW IT DOWN TO????? WON’T BE BUYING YOUR PRODUCTS ANYMORE!! GARBAGE!!!!!!!!!

    • I agree! I don’t even like Mitt Romney, but a Mitt Romney Hates You potato chip??! How gross does that sound

    • RIGHT THE HELL ON!!!

      THIS IS REDUNDANT “buLL sh_t”

    • RIGHT THE HELL ON!!! ‘lLAY’S YOU UNDERCOVER SCAM PENIS SKIN jERKS!!!!

      THIS IS REDUNDANT “buLL sh_t”

    • Janice Jones says:

      This has to be the most ridiculous contest ever! Do you think people are going to buy that garbage! There have been really good flavor ideas, but this is absurd! As another person stated I also will no longer purchase your product!!

    • Im with you Janice Jones!! I will NOT buy anything else lays makes.

    • I am so disappointed with Lays and the final flavors. So unfair to all the flavors submitted. Who want to eat a chip named after Mitt Romney. I am not going to even insult my intregrity by buying a bag, Thanks a lot for nothing Lays. Evidently you want to help make Romney richer than what he is.

    • Carol Ann Jernigan says:

      Anonymous–don’t be afraid to give your name and to stand up for what is right.

  4. This has gotta be rigged!

  5. Adam Davies says:

    All three of these flavors sound so good… so hard to choose

  6. Swiss Piggy says “Eat Me!” Please!!!

  7. Wow.. i was under the impression this was a serious contest to actually create something good. let me guess, Lay’s will take all the actual good ideas and make those chips without acknowleding the creator while using this silly promotion as a advertising cost they write off.. really weak on the part of Lay’s..

    • I thought they were serious too. I didn’t realize they were just trying to push their own political agenda down are throats. Wow, I’ll no longer purchase any Lays products.

    • debra binge says:

      i never even got an email and i think the choices are stupid, no im not a romney lover, but this was a contest i feel was misleading. really, you have to send a sase to find out who won? what the hell!

    • Carol Ann Jernigan says:

      My sentiments exactly. See my comment above regarding the new flavors I’ve seen in the stores.

  8. LAURIE J COLE says:

    I wish there was a I HATE YOU, MITT ROMNEY!!!!! I WOULD TOTALLY VOTE FOR THAT ONE, EVEN OVER MINE–(TOTALLY TERIYAKI!!)

  9. dear lays the world is getting tuff out there.jobs are hard to find.millions of people tried hard to come up with a new chip and had dreams of how that money would help there family.and this is what you pick.shame on you

  10. GetSirius says:

    Lay’s must be Obama supports no doubt! Mitt was wrong with his 47% statement, its increased to more like 70% in the last 4 years!!!

  11. Could not agree more! This is nothing more then lays showing there political view! I have not made my choice I just hate it when company’s pull this stuff!!

  12. I think this is so stupid and unfair!! Ppl actually used there brains to come up with very different flavors!
    For lays to choose something like this is jus gets under
    My skin!!! I could under stand picking one of them,
    But how abt giving someone else that actually thought of
    Something good a chance!!! This is a damn joke!!!

  13. WHAT A WASTE OF THE PUBLIC’S TIME AND ENERGY YOU TOOK MY IDEA FOR “SPICY KETCHUP” AND YOU PUT IT IN STORES TO SELL THIS PRODUCT AS IF IT WAS YOUR OWN…. ALL YALL DID WAS USE PPL FOR YOUR OWN PERSONAL GAIN , THIS IS A SLAP IN THE FACE TO ALL FELLOW AMERICANS AND YET YOU ARE RACIST TO BLACKS, AND LATINO’S ALIKE THEN WHO EVER THIS PERSON IS THAT YOU SET UP TO BE A WINNER IS JUST WRONG, NEXT TIME YOU DO CONTEST JUST SAY NO BLACKS, AND LATINO’S ALLOWED TO ENTER…. TRUST I WILL MAKE SURE EVERYONE KNOWS ABOUT THIS RUBISH… YOU GUYS NEED A REALITY CHECK…

  14. Mulfilinger, McNett, and Hallman, Attorney at Law says:

    Good Morning,

    We will be putting together a class action lawsuit against Lays based in part on their obtuse political beliefs and the offensive nature of this discriminatory and defenseless crime. Please reply to this comment if you would like to be included.

    Respectfully,
    Fletcher Reede, Attorney At Law

    • Melissa Vanhee says:

      I am completely on board with this suit. The American people were defrauded and Lay’s needs to pay the consequences! Every day I submitted a new flavor. My BBQ Ranch Chipotle flavor should have won! I put blood, sweat and tears into that contest and then they go ahead and just screw everyone. This is not the last you will be hearing from me Lay’s, you can count on that. I demand justice!

    • IM IN..

    • Please add me in to this lawsuit. Making the public believe that it was a legitimate contest and then allowing a press release like this. SICK. Please feel free to email me for my contact info. Im deepy disappointed in Lay’s and its owners.

      • How much did mitt romey pay them for this ? The only one making money is lays. God for give you lays for disappointing the public. We were hopeful and you allowed this this to go on. It wasen’t a political contest it was suppose to be a patato chip contest.WOW!!! Hope u loose sleep over this one.

    • Brad Benjamin says:

      I’m so on board with the lawsuit. And I’m not even a Romney supporter. This is totally biased and wrong on many levels. That being said, I will never buy a single Lay’s chip as long as I live. UTZ chips are way better anyways.

    • I thought I had a great flavor. I don’t believe this. A waste of my time.

    • INCLUDE ME I WORKED HARD ON MY IDEAS

    • Im in i had a good idea! i cannot believe this bs! way to go Lays im sure you have lost a lot of buyers!

      • lanny arsham says:

        I will never buy Lays again this was a bull shit contedt and what the hell flavor is this anyway….shame on Lays.

    • I’m in for the suit. I spent 3 months coming up with flavors. I tried my best and to have this childish crap win. Contact me.

    • Not happy with lays. ..that contest was straight bs they had the name for the flavor already and I will not by lays with is name….hope lays sells hit rock bottom.

    • C K Bennett says:

      I’m in. Thought I had a winner. I am a former fire fighter–came up w/Firehouse Chili. I am furious. I have been contacting everyone I know not to purchase Lay’s products again. I sure won’t!

    • Kanika Banks says:

      LAYS COMPANY IS COR[ORATE CROOKS. THEY COULD NOT COME UP WITH FLAVORS, SO THEY USED THE WORLD TO HELP WITH THEIR GAIN. HOW IN TH HE DOUBLE STICKS CAN YOU PICK THREE FINALIST NOT EVEN A MONTH AFTER THE CONTEST ENded!!! IVE SUBMITTED OVER 25 FLAVORS , GOOD FLAVORS LIKE SLOPPY JOE AND THREE GRILLED CHEESE..AND MUCH MORE!!

    • Include me right in there with the other folks. I’m pissed.

    • Sign me up e- mail is r.gespy@yahoo.com name Roxie Hopefully lays do it right with everybody out there. I do see new chips on the shelves in the small sample bags. I’m just unhappy I haven’t seen many pickled corn chips or my Dillpickle chips. Or my spinach Garlic avocado dip. Now those chips I’m sure that by before mitt Romney.lol

    • Kim Cousins says:

      Myself and my whole circle of family and friends are disgusted by this scam…we spent hours coming up with ideas (we submitted about 50 flavors) submitting them and designing bags etc. We will never purchase Lays Potato Chips again. Please include me in any actions you may take against this fraud. Thank you.

    • Karla jacobson says:

      Include me !! Am totally upset…

    • Donna Stelmach says:

      The Lays hoax was just beyond words-no legitimate company can behave that way and expect anyone to support them, while getting free advertising and flavor ideas to use in future product lines. It was a misrepresentation of an offer that was genuing accepted by thousands of people hoping to win the grand prize. Disgusting Lays! Now pay up!

      If I was a Lays shareholder, I would be vry upset that the Board’s political message was being used at my fnancial expense.

    • Jenny Mohler says:

      Lays shouldn’t be able to get away with this ,it’s a crime,they had commercials,and advertisement on the chip bags,I submitted many flavors!I will never buy a Lay’s product again ,they should be sued for all that they are worth!

    • La Quan Carpenter says:

      I am interested in joining the lawsuit. I totally disagree with lays

    • nell delillo says:

      im in

    • My submission was dried tomato and basil I saw tomato and basil in the store yesterday

    • kristy minasian says:

      In in..i put alot of time also into thinking this was real and i was creative.i also saw a chip from lays that was like what i made.oim angry that this is not real..

    • Adele Linda Guiteras says:

      Yes..please include me in your lawsuit..I earnestly entered this contest with high hopes that it was going to be fair and legal. Now we find out, it was all a Hoax for Lays to get new flavor ideas? That sounds like fraud to me!!

    • Pat Danner says:

      Lay’s deserves whatever they get on this one. All those who entered the contest, maybe we should send our ideas to UTZ or another chip company.

    • I know I am getting in on this late but I want to be a part of this as well.

    • There is no way this is a valid legal contest. They obviously set out on an agenda with a means to an end.It reminds me of the monopoly game mcdonalds had, prechosen winners I smell a scam!!

    • !I entered over 100 entries. What a fool I was! Stayed awake many times to think & rethink flavors for Lays. But how stupid was I, in between my cancer treatments & not getting any rest, I thought that I may have a chance at winning this so called contest!! Maybe Mitt Romney will get richer just by them using his name on a chip bag! This is an insult to the public!!! And I thought that they wasted money when they let the garlic bread chip win! I was hoping that this year that they would do better in choosing a good one. There are so many people out there that could have really used the money and been very proud to have lays pick one of thiers as a winner. All of us who have entered put a lot of time & effort into thinking of a new flavor for them, this is very sad and I feel bad for all of the others who have entered. Lets not be so gullible next time!!!! They can wipe their asses now with the Mitt Romney chip and so can the winner for all I care! What a despicable way to show the public how much they really do care! And I was worried that lays was throwing a lot of money away on a not so good chip flavor??? What was I thinking??? Worring about the companys money when they don’t care!!! This is really crazy & very sad. Yes I want in in a lawsuit with all of the others, we are very insulted by this company!!!! Someone needs to stop this crap from happening again!!! Let it be all of us! I hope they go bankrupt for acting this way! What a bunch of corporate assholes!!!

    • JULIE BREWINGTON- BEASLEY says:

      Yes, I also put my flavors into this hoax and would be only to happy to join the law suit I am very angry about this whole situation.

  15. Jay Johnson says:

    Ok, at first I thought this was sarcasm, but I clicked the link from Facebook, so I know it has to be for real!!! What the hell Lay’s???

  16. This is bullsh*t Lay’s. A Mitt Romney tasting chip???? Sick!

  17. Edith Morehead says:

    This is so messed up. I spent every day submitting a flavor I thought Lay’s would like.
    Then, they just go ahead and pick 3 finalists that are all Mitt Romney flavors??
    This is such a scam and needs to be investigated!

  18. Even Dallas says:

    Lay’s, you Mitt Romney chip loving fools…. I better get a piece of that million dollars or I’m suing

  19. Look, Mitt Romney hates 99% of all of us… but does he deserve a potato chip that proves that? Well, maybe. If it tastes good, I’ll try it

  20. this is ridiculous outlandish, I had some really great flavors. Id better not see any of my chips on any shelves and not get any of the proceeds. lying dirty BASTARDS! I will never again buy lays. at least if it where something that made sense I would not be mad but this CRAP! pleas. PLEASE DONT VOTE FOR THS GARBAGE.

  21. I’m mad as hell! I put a lot of time and effort into naming my flavors and then 3 stupid Mitt Romney flavors are the possible winners??? This has gotta be rigged

  22. Lays, I cant believe that you stumped people like that when we have been so faithful to your products, and we all tried so hard to really come up with a good flavor!! Well just so you know. I can make my own potato chips and make the flavor I wont them to be. You wasted a lot of peoples time including mine with your stupidity. Fool me once… I’m done. I now know where you stand, and I’m not talking about Romney verses Obama…

  23. Mulfilinger, McNett, and Hallman, Attorney at Law says:

    All,

    Bad news. Turns out Lays has very good legal representation and we have no case against them. My associates, Mitchell McDeere and Vincent Gamboni, were stiff armed in our attempts to serve Lays with a lawsuit. We were told that Lays would counter suit against our class action law suit based on defamation of character, slander, and misrepresentation. I have been practicing law since 1997 and have seen many cases stuck in appeals court and this will be another one of them. Additionally, I was challenged by their legal team to try one of the flavors because apparently no matter how much we think they are out of line, they swear we can not in fact enjoy just one. It was appalling, quite honestly.

    I encourage you all to contact Lays and express your displeasure over their clearly biased favoritism towards Mr. Romney and his campaign.

    Thank you all for your replies. Good luck in your future endeavors.
    -Fletcher Reede, Attorney At Law

  24. Brad Benjamin says:

    I’m so sad that my flavor didn’t get picked :(

    F*ck you Mitt Romney flavor!

  25. you guys are full of it.people are in need of money and you guys pull such a dumb joke as this.I will not buy your chips anymore.

  26. I spent time to come up with some ggod flavors and all we have is those stupid flavors! WHat flavors are they really? Come on was this like a joke or what. The names of the chips are so stupid. I will no longer buy Lays!!!!! What a hoax! What the heck.

  27. If this contest was a joke….It doesn’t appear too many people are laughing. I know I’m not. Very disappointing to take time to enter a contest that one thinks is a “real” contest to find out it was something that appears to be nothing but a scam. What has been explained really is quite confusing to say the least….is there a “flavor” even to vote on…..not that I would at this point. Lays…you have stooped to a new LOW…..There are so many other chips on the shelves to purchase…I certainly will choose one of them before I ever consider buying yours again….and ya need to know…..you WERE my favorite. Hope this contest doesn’t end up biting you in the “chip” !!!!

  28. This was suppost to be a chip contest how much did mitt pay for this!! You dissappointed alot of people. The only ones that made any money was Lays. God forgive you for using this contest as a political areana. I hope the bublic stands behind this wrong decision on your part and you will in the r end up being the BIGGEST loosers!!!

  29. LAYS DONT LIKE DEMOCRATS, I THINK THIS ONE WOULD HAVE BEEN ONE OF THE TOP 3

  30. I think its unfair that this guy thought that mitt romney chips would sell how come they didnt pick a good flavor chip instead of a guy whos a worthless peice of shit its not fair to anyone else.They should redo the lays do us a flavor contest because this guy thinks that creating a chip named after one of americas stupid canidates is gonna win.Its bullshit alot of people had great ideas hell why not do all the ideas and just have people try the flavors first instead of putting people out i dont think its right redo for flavor

  31. LAYS YOU HAVE DONE WRONG IM IN ON THIS LAWSUIT YOU DIDN’T EVEN GIVE ANY OF US AMERICANS A CHANCE TO EVEN TASTE THE FLAVOR OF CERTAIN LAYS AND TO PUT SOMETHING OUT SUCH AS MITT ROMNEY CHIPS HOW MUCH DID ROMNEY PAY YOU LAY GUYS TO PUT HIS NAME ON A CHIP I CANT BELIEVE YOU GUYS WOULD DO THIS HAVE AMERICA DO US A FLAVOR WHEN ALL YOU DID WAS RIG YOUR OWN DAMN COMPETITION IM NOT EATING LAYS ANYMORE IM GONNA SWITCH TO RUFFLES OR SOMETHING THAT ISNT CHIPS AFTER ALL THIS RIGGGED IS RIGGED JUST LIKE THE POLLS ARE RIGGED NO OFFENSE ROMNEY BUT IF U WANNA BUY YOUR WAY INTO AMERICA YOUR GONNA GET BOOTED OUT IM 100% Obama AMERICA ROMNEY IS RACIST HES GOT A RACIST BACKGROUND HE HATES EVERYBODY INCLUDING THE POOR WATCH IT LAYS YOU HAVE LOTS OF LAWSUITS COMING AT YOU YOU MIGHT BE OUTTA BUSINESS

  32. this is a load of BS, some of us took the time to come up with proper names and good flavours, just to think mitt romney now on a lays chip packets, its rediculous.

  33. Can’t be true, my girl friend, received an email stating that her flavor was one in the running of the winning flavor, she even received a letter from Lays & a coupon for Lays Chips and a $50 Visa card,,,,has anyone else received anything like this…and her chip flavors were none listed above.

    • connie carreira says:

      OMG I PUT IN AROUND 70 DIFFERENT FLAVORS AND DIDNT EVEN GET A DARN COUPON AT LEAST YOUR GIRLFRIEND GOT A 50 VISA………. REALY IN ALL ACTUALITY I THINK LAYS USED TO BE THE AMERICAN WAY TO EAT A CHIP BUT NOW I THINK THEY ARE SELFISH FOOLS BECAUSE I DO BELIEVE CANADA AND OTHER COUNTRIES WERE IN THIS —— COME ON LETS ALL PULL TOGETHER AND MAKE A BRAND THAT WILL PUT LAYS OUTTA BUSINESS…………… WE CAN CALL IT MAYBE ” A BIT OF REVENGE”

      • shemika jones says:

        I’m with you all the way on this one come on mitt romney hates you sh*t i hate his ass to f*ck lays and mitt romney who the f*ck gonna buy that bullsh*t it should have been Obama BEST flavor chips

    • stanley mcneal says:

      I got the email saying i was one of choices to f the lays and if i see someone buying them i will say something somebody needs to let a 911 happend to lays nasty ass chips they are using our flavors for free maybe flavorfave should sue their ass check this i am a hacker and followed their conversations online they thought the stupid punk was going to win wrong and the guy they said had the choiced check his background he a durty mf too did you read his comment he is in on the scam wish i could give more details by the way havent everyone heard about the shit they put in the chips thats why you cant eat one it is addicting the president of lays is racest to get the names of the offical in the office guess what else they are going bankrupt thats why the pull this shit if anybody buys there chips check your side affects

    • I received all the same stuff as your girlfriend did. that just meant that one of her flavors was randomly picked for flavor of the week. I am sure there were lots of winners in the weekly flavor pick but it was just a random pick. read the contest rules.

  34. Patti A. Rivera/Henschel says:

    Hey is my wasabi soy sauce a contender in the milliion dollar choice

  35. This can not be true! My flavor should have won!

  36. Robert Yunker says:

    I hope I still have a chance to have my flavor picked. Mitt Romney flavors don’t sound good to me at all.

  37. If this is true that the flavors that won were Mitt Romney anything. (Not a flavor just someones opinion). I also will stop purchasing Frito Lay’s products and will encourage my family and friends to do the same. I too thought it was legit.

  38. What a joke. I can’t believe Eva would even endorse such nonsense. I cannot believe as a company in the United States who depends on the American people to thrive, would stoop to this level. Good luck Frito Lay I truly hope American’s give your company the same respect you have chosen to give to your consumers.

  39. Disappointed American Citizen says:

    This is complete bullsh*t! You really think American’s are going to want to buy Lay’s Potato Chips now??? Lays should have chosen something better than what they did. And ALL 3 top picks just so happen to have Mitt Romney’s name in their title! That’s just so messed up. The contest was a total scam and waste of time to people who actually came up with great flavors and didn’t get picked. Lay’s just lost another customer.

  40. Lay’s as a personal chef, I will not spend a great amount of time trying to create a great idea, for someone to enjoy. You have took Lay’s to another level and that level has spiral down. The company should be embarrassed and disgraceful. Because of your action, I would never do another chip contest again. You lost me, Like Mitt Romney Lost it.
    Seriously,
    One un-happy customer
    P.S. Sign me up for the Law Suit.
    Thanks
    tw

  41. Setting aside how much anger this result would generate, bear in mind that 6 months from now no one will even remember Romney so using his name in chip flavors would be foolish. I’m 99% certain this Romney flavor will suck.

  42. I can not believe that Lays did this. Isn’t there enough issues in this Country?? We had people thinking this was real and it’s polical garbage?? Shame on you Lays!!! You picked all 3 flavors that are almost identical. I hope Mitt Romney sues you for using his name. Never will I buy any of your products again. If you use my entry I will sue you too! I entered it in good faith and would never have given you my idea. Perhaps a more respectable company will be interested in my idea!

    • connie carreira says:

      lAYS PLEASE SAY U ALL WERE KIDDING AND WANTED TO GET A RESPONSE BIGGER THAN THE ENTRIES WELL U DID SO CALL THE JOKE OFF——— PICK THREE VALID FLAVORS AND COMPENSATE THE PERSON WHO NAMED THE 3 MITT ROMNEY – KNOW ONE HAS A VALID CHANCE—– DID U EVEN CHECK OUT ANY OF MY 70 FLAVORS???????????

  43. Folks… I contacted Frito Lay’s today. They confirmed these are the final three chip flavors. F*cking bullshit!

  44. After I initially saw the three flavors about Mitt Romney, I was pissed. Then I felt like a total idiot for not liking them. I love Lay’s. I love calling them on the phone and will buy any flavor they put out there, no matter how much I think I’m going to hate it.

  45. Sue Positore says:

    NEVER WILL BUY LAY’S CRAP AGAIN

  46. Tis has to be a joke! I can’t believe it!! This is bs if anyone of the flavors I submitted are on the market in the next couple of years, because the names of mine had great marketing potential…..” Jamaican Jerk” and “Mojo” mark my words if those flavors or names are used by frito lay or any one of their subsidiaries without compensation I will be taking it to the next level!
    Frito Lay this is a joke!! Someone will win a million dollars for one of these! Rediculous!!

    • Oh and btw, Frito Lays brand and Pepsi will never be in our home, and will make sure every single person I speak to in our store hears this and you will feel the effect!!

      BOYCOTT FRITO LAY!!

  47. REALLY????? WTF!!!!!??????? DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY GOOD AND REAL FLAVORS WERE SUBMITTED!!????? AND THEY PICKED MITT ROMNEYS FLAVORS? EWWWWWWW!!!! WHO WANTS TO TASTE ANYTHING ROMNEY!!??? I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS! WAS THIS A REAL CONTEST!? I THINK NOT!!! IM NOT GOING TO BUY ANYTHING LAY’S!! AND I HOPE YOUR “WINNER” CHIP DOESNT DO WELL AT ALL!!!! YOU SCAMMERS!!!! YOU ARE A JOKE!!! HOPE YOU HAD A GOOD LAUGH!! BUT REMEMBER,HE WHO LAUGHS LAST LAUGHS BEST!!! AND THAT WILL BE US WHEN YOU FAIL!!!!

  48. Anita Smoke says:

    Lays sucks monkey cock!

  49. Anita Smoke says:

    oh and for the record I forgot the comma between sucks and monkey. Monkey cock is like saying poppy cock, which would be like saying Romney is a flavor, it’s just random nonsensical bullcrap!!!

  50. Um folks, am I the only one who is not extremely pissed here. They better not use my flavor!

  51. ARE THEY SERIOUS? REALLY? I thought this was a real contest for a bets flavor, not another appealing to the basest instinct popularity contest.
    I voted for Obama, I didn’t want Romney to win at all, I didn’t trust him I didn’t like him, but I still think having such names on a potatoe chip is disgraceful, I don’t know how they could endorse such politically scandalous slanderous words that have nothing to do with enjoying a happy new potatoe chip flavor. this is prime example of my total disappointment in all online contests, they are not longer about talent or intelligence, it is how many facebook hits you get. I don’t care what flavor wins, I’m erasing my entry, Teriaki Flavor… they better not use that later either, and I’m not buying Lays anymore. Thank you.

  52. FOR THOSE OF YOU SAYING THEY “STOLE YOUR FLAVOR”- DO YOU REALLY THINK THEY NOTICED YOUR ONE RANDOM POST AND RELEASED AN ENTIRELY NEW PRODUCT INTO TO STORE NATIONWIDE IN A MATTER OF WEEKS???

  53. Let’s sue them first and then a nationwide boycott!

    • Lays should be ashamed. I agree boycott and sue them. We submitted 20-30 ideas. If I see one on the shelf I will pitch one hell of a fit… The CEO should be fired. Their Marketing dept. is lazy and lame. they should be fired also… I need a job.

  54. michael milevoi jr & chloe says:

    Ok first of all this was a scam..their were millions of people that cae up with plenty of different flavors that other companies just came out with for examples ruffels chips. And y’all pick some mick romney thaat the website said 3 flavors not people names. Big scam if you ask me

  55. I’m glad the flavors I created were stupid like “creamasumyunguy” and “Holyfields ear” otherwise I’d be really pissed they’re stealing my flavors. On a more serious note – due to Lays deceitfulness , I will not be buying their chips anymore , that goes for all their products including fritos, Pringles, anything with Lays on the back in fine print.

  56. I am in too! So sneaky and manipulating.

  57. Jennifer B says:

    Surely they can’t be serious?? But it seems to be a negative for Mitt Romney, not positive. But really… I’ve seen a few new flavors including ranch-dipped buffalo wing. My sister had that as an idea. Mine was Spicy Italian- tomato, mozzarella and pepperoni flavor. And the loaded baked potato- bacon, chive, sour cream. Boooooo…. that’s no good.

  58. LAYS………YOU MAY SUCK MY GREASY CHIP AND BAG,WHICH LAYS ACROSS YOUR TONGUE………PLEASE NAME THAT FLAVOR AND THE INGREDIENTS THEREIN……………,MAYBE YOU’LL BE A WINNER!

  59. The decision of Lays to integrate politics into a potato chip contest is shocking, repulsive, and disgraceful.

  60. EVELYN RINALDI says:

    i was in the lays contest , i really wanted to win a million dollars , plus have everyone eating my million dollars chips ; i was very hurt and very shocked what lays did ;we all was created with our flavers ; and we all work very hard ; be proud of yourself ;the only one you can trust is your loves ; ones. have a good holiday ;a happy newyear and be happy for loves ones , peace love and to go on , HI WINNERS ; YOU ALL DID GOOD ;LAYS CANT TAKE THAT AWAY FROM USEDS ;

  61. EVELYN RINALDI says:

    DONT VOTE ; ENJOY THE HOLIDAYS ; AND LAYS SHAME ; SHAME ; SHAME ;

  62. Brian Martin says:

    Does anyone not care about this man’s health? All those millions and all that alcohol and drugs. He’ll be dead in a month. Though, I sure hope I’m wrong.

  63. I think that Lays should have picked a better chip they narrowed it down to three retarded chips that no ne will probably eat. And the names are even just as stupid what was the person thinking when he picked thoughs (people are gonna hate me cause I made a stupid chipe decision). Thats what I think about that.

  64. Ronda Wilson says:

    This is absolutely rediculous. I can’t believe these are the three finalist. This is a scam by such a major company. They did this to keep from paying out the $1 Million! I bet no real person wins it. I also bet that they’ll see which submissions were most popular and come out with those flavors anyway. I say we all join a class action lawsuit against lays to teach them a lesson. No one wants to eat chips named after that idiot Romney. I’d much rather eat something related to food?! Who ever chose these flavors, obviously had they’re soft spot played with a little too much as a baby and is a moderate percentage sufferer of mental retardation…and suffers severly fron idiotitis!

  65. ERIC SMITH says:

    WOW, HOW SAD TO GET PEOPLE ON BOARD LAYS AND THEN SINK THE BOAT. THIS WILL PUT A HUGE DENT TO YOUR FINANCIAL GAIN FOR SURE, YOU HAVE PISSED OFF THE WRONG PEOPLE.. OH AND YOU CAN TAKE THAT POLITICAL SO CALLED CHIP AND SHOVE IT UP YOUR ASS!

  66. michelle stuart says:

    Utterly disapointed, what a disgrace, Lays you should be ashamed of yourself!

  67. shemika Jones says:

    THIS IS A BUNCH OF BULLSH*T COME ON WHO IN THE HELL GONNA BUY SOMETHING FROM MITT ROMNEY. MITT ROMNEY HATES YOU SH*T I HATE HIS ASS TOO FUCK MITT ROMNEY AND LAY I WILL NEVER BUY THEY SHIT AGAIN EVER WHY COULD’NT IT BE OBAMA’S BEST THAT’S WHAT I SHOULD HAVE DONE IF I NEW THEY WAS GONNA PICK THAT BULLSH*T!!!!!!!!!!!

  68. This is exciting! The one with the most votes wins will be the million dollar winner.

  69. Are you all as mad as me? I know I am!

  70. Im sorry but this is just stupid!!! I dont get it at all! I mean wth is the chip gonna taste like??

    • this is crap I agree with all of you cause I made a few of my own flavors. like mushroom and swiss and also five cheese alfreado but anything has to be better than that crap.

  71. You guys! I am pissed!

  72. SHEMIKA JONES says:

    WELL I HAVE ALL MY CHIPS DOCUMENTED THE NAMES,DATES,TIMES,AND FLAVORS THAT THEY WERE POSTED SO LAYS WHAT YOU HAVE DONE WAS VERY UNFAIR I PERSONALY THINK SO.VERY,VERY NOT RIGHT CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME THAT THOSE CHIPS ARE NOT REAL!!!!!!!!!!!!

  73. Deborah King says:

    Lays you go right ahead and pick them three flavors, and see how many people STOP BUYING YOUR PRODUCT!!! I will NEVER eat them again if you pick one of these crappy names!!!!!! SHAME ON YOU, and I will be telling everyone I know what the hell you guys are planning on doing!!!

  74. I think its safe to say that I will never buy another bag of lays potato chips again!

  75. I AM DONE WITH YOU LAYS!! What a bunch of bull “tricking” people in order to get traffic to your site! What the hell are those “top finalist” flavors…”Bullshit”? I am offended that Frito-Lay and Pepsi, Frito-Lay’s parent company, would show their ass like this…playing the political game with their customers.
    Will be passing this onto FB!!

  76. Smarten up folks. Lay’s betrayed us.

  77. EVelynrinaldi says:

LOVE PEACE .

  83. SERIOUSLY?!?

  84. This is just plain STUPID! If I were Lay’s I would give a free bag of chips to everyone and apologize.

  85. I’M MAD AT LAY’S AND I TYPE IN ALL CAPS!

  86. Are these the actual flavors? If so this had to have been a joke. I submitted ideas for what reason. Lays disclaimer said they would be announcing the finalists on January 15. I don’t like Mitt Romney.

  87. Hopefully all the packages that you see on the shelves the samples are going to be chose from the one that sells the most of Will probably be the one that they will choose to put in the big Bags for sale. Maybe everybody’s getting in a panic too soon. Why not wait till the outcome then complain.

  88. I’m just hoping one day I can see pickled corn chips on the shelf at Walmart Meyer all gas station stores etc. Why it takes too long to make Pickled corn and I love the flavor. I would rather just buy a bag of chips. Are there people out there that love Pickled corn. If so let me know I’m curious of how many people know what it is. I love it so much when I was 17 got married left my wedding with my aunt from New Jersey went down to my fathers house and Robbed his pickle corn Crock. Hey what can I say she loves it to. I mentioned my father had some made and away we went.

  89. Fabiana Rodriguez says:

    Very disappointing! I can’t believe this crap!

  90. I can’t believe this bull!

  91. Pam Ridge says:

    Just not believing this is an actual web site we will see.. This has been a actual contest all over the world with real winners with real entries and just not buying it. If this was legit I’d really hate it because I love Lays Potatoe Chips!

  92. heather cramer says:

    All three suck none of them should get the money or reconition, you also should not have gotten peoples hopes up or ideas created to waste it on those choices. What a joke. I am very displeased. It is like having people like Toby Keith famous for red solo cup when other great singers and writers are undiscovered. Shame on Lays. I take my popper dill pickle idea back, stuffed mushrooms, and buffalo blue burger back. It is all mine.

  93. richard wayne martin says:

    my flavor is (el relleno), but im not sure you have my mailing address. it is P.O. box 1120 burbank CA 91507. phone# 818 620-6191

  94. richard wayne martin says:

    if somebody has negative to say, try to be more tacticle, as actions speak louder than words. i have experience of going up against the all mighty housing authority. if you all are serious, you need to start a class action law suit. NOW THINK! DO I REALLY HAVE A CASE. IF YES I CAN HELP YOU

  95. richard wayne martin says:

    IF NOBODY ACTS DON’T EXPECT THIS COUNTRY TO GET BETTER. ONLY JOHN Q NEEDS POWER, THE OTHERS DON’T NEED THIS MONEY.

  96. you can erase but i can and will find the truth. always have. remember [el relleno]PO BOX 1120 BURBANK CA 91507. LET ME KNOW WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT. if i get washington involved, this matter will take a lot of time and funding to resolve. thank you.

  97. times are changing, big is becoming easier to tackle. where have all the good ole boys gone to hide. for now, loop holes

  98. This had better be a fing joke is all I have to say! Frito-Lays contest is duplicitous, misleading!

  99. I still love Lays :)

  100. Unbelievable! My flavor was a really good one and if I ever see it in the stores there will be hell to pay! I will never again buy any of Lay’s products as I begin my Lifetime Boycott. This is absolutely shameful of them. Count me in on your lawsuit!

  101. Sheila Marra says:

    This blows my mind. It’s hard to believe this is for real. It seems someone has made this up. If not, who in this world would accept something like this as a flavor to represent their company. Especially a company like LAY’S

  102. Jenny Mohler says:

    This is not fair ,everybody that took the time out to submitt flavors should be given something !

  103. Sammie mailloux says:

    I was a daily winner from the lays do us a flavor contest and I got gift card for 50 bucks and a couple little things from them.

  104. Lame potato chips. Market that as your new name!!! <3

  105. Just about every person and “e-lawyer” that commented on here, may santa bring you Lay’s Potato chips next christmas.

    -Juan

  106. nell delillo says:

    i will never buy there chips again they had this picked all along, you gave a lot of people hope of picking a flavor and now this what r u thinking

  107. This is why you should start eating Pringles. No mess. No after taste. Less salt and you know what your getting. I will buy Golden Flake before I spend a penny on anything with the name Lays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  108. Is this some kind of sick joke? I don’t want politics mixed in with my snacks. I’m not an Obama fan but I’m not voting for any of these chips. I don’t even know the flavors. Either way, I’m not voting. I entered over 16 flavors of chips that I thought were delicious because I thought that Lays would actually pick something legit. I went with flavors that hasn’t been done yet. I hope that Lays doesn’t wait until this dies down and then uses one of our flavors later. We won’t be paid either because the contest will be over. I know my flavors and don’t want it stolen. If I got paid and credited, well, that’s another story.
    I am going with another brand of chips. This contest was bull crap. You are full of it, Lays. Good-bye to you.

  109. I demand justice!

  110. This is real people, check Lay’s Facebook page if you don’t believe me. Makes me so mad!

  111. screw you lays..can’t believe i actually fell for this crap..we’re in desperate need of money and i actually thought we could’ve had a chance. complete bs.

  112. Read the page people. It’s real!!! The contest is a hoax obviously

  113. Did any of you happen to notice that this Paul Horner guy is also the “SAME” Paul Horner who is homeless and hit that Power Ball $580 million powerball recently from Arizona. I ask you what are the odds astronomical and very unlikely that what Lay’s put out here is true. One person cannot get all three flavors.

  114. What a disgrace to the American consumer. I believed this was a true and valid contest, promoting a variety of new flavors. I guess my submission meant nothing. So sad…………I am boycotting any LAYS products.
    Disappointed in Florida

  115. well its to bad you can’t trust lays co. its really dissapointing to all of us that entered this contest!! what are they thinking!!!!!

  116. LAY’s REALLY PISSES ME OFF!

  117. I still love Lay’s. I’ll eat a Mitt Romney potato chip

  118. pat dwyer says:

    Lay”s would have gotton more and better publicity by actually having a legitemit contest. The one person at lay’s who came up with this idea should feel like an idiot!

  119. Jeff Davis says:

    What a joke. I’m so ashamed of actually thinking of flavors. I hope the winner knows that except for the fact that he hates you he did want to let you keep more of that prize money. Let’s have an Obama Lies Chip maybe it can leave a bad taste in your mouth that last about 8 years? You will only be able to find out what flavor you got after you purchase the bag. We can package it in an bag that is bigger, media friendly and put less chips in it. The greatest part about it is what ever the bag say’s isn’t necessarily whats in the bag. It’s more expensive and you’ve just been lied to. But don’t worry because your not going to pay for these chips anyway. Your kids will 20 years from now. I can imagine at least 50% of the people buying the chip in February are going to scratch their heads and wonder who Mitt Romney is. And yes liberals will blame him for any deaths related to eating these fat heart attack causing foods. Lay’s should be ashamed. There could have been so many possibilities. I hope Mitt sues while he has a “Coke & A Smile”

  120. Jeff Davis says:

    It had to be a hoax. In retrospect. How many duplicate entries would they receive? All of those would be disqualified even entries that where similar would have to go because you know somebody would claim that it was their idea. How could Lay’s claim the rights to a flavor? Cherry is cherry Can I own that flavor? also they could not have taken somebodies grandma’s fried chicken recipe actually understood the flavor break it down to all those big word ingredients listed on the bag. made sure it didn’t give mice cancer let legal clear any anticipated legal challenges and find them self’s ready in what a year. No way they are going to spend that kind of money without test markets.

  121. I love Lay’s! I don’t even care… I would still eat any of these three flavors

  122. I submitted the smokey bacon and onion. So the contest was a hoax or is it this website. As why would Lays pay a lot of money to make a commercial just for a stunt. If your chip flavors are in the stores something should be done, I better check to see if mine is in there.

  123. Well this is interesting because I thought the flavor that won was chicken and waffles. That is what I’ve recently seen in stores. Can someone seriously help me understand what is going on

  124. Fran Senjem says:

    I am disappointed in the contest you ran. I thought about the recipes I submitted and it appears the top three did not, too bad for you! Lays were my favorite chips and still will be, however I will not buy your products any longer and I will encourage family and friends to do likewise. The flavors you selected will be short lived like Mitt’s run for president too bad. The memory of this contest will last alot longer. So ” DO YOURSELF A FLAVOR” and don’t run anymore bogus contests. P.S. I think you owe everyone an apology that entered this contest and wasted their time and energy and maybe a little dream of winning.

  125. I’ll still eat Lay’s. I luv’s em

  126. This is bogus!!

    • He's Right says:

      He’s right and i can honestly say this contest is real. I work for Frito-lay and i’ve seen 1 of the finalist flavors.

  127. katisha reese says:

    I was shocked to see the final 3 picks if I knew we was making chips about people I would have done that I made fried potatoes and onions this was a waste of my time I think yall owe everyone an apologize leading us the wrong way so how did the 3 yall pick no to pick people to name chips after.

  128. I am so mad about this mess my children and I though of good food names for the new flavor we were not told you wanted it to be named after a person. I want some money for all of the entries me and my children wasted our time on. SEND ME MY MONEY OR WE ALL WILL SUE YOU FOR LYING.

  129. This is so stupid! Whoever picked those flavors is very weird! Nobody will buy those!!! Im picking NONE!

  130. Hmmmm... potato chips says:
  131. What is the first thing you think about ordering when you go out to eat…? My flavor was cheesy spinach artichoke, now who wouldnt like that!! Were the 3 kinds listed pulled out of a hat? How stupid are those flavors and really who eats waffles & chicken..

  132. I’m so ticked that I actually invested time in this hoax and subjected my child to it as well. Lay’s was our favorite, but now we chose Ruffles!

  133. Come on Lay’s…..Mitt Romney must be getting a cut on these so called flavors. Otherwise he would be suing you for slander!

  134. Who should I complain to about this contest? I have proof that I submitted the sriracha idea on July 29th!!!! I’m kinda pissed!!

    Check out my Instagram for proof. ricardo_mendez_ii

  135. I cannot believe the people on here who believe this website. This contest is real. This information is not real… http://www.pepsico.com/PressRelease/Lays-Potato-Chips-Eva-Longoria-And-Chef-Michael-Symon-To-Introduce-Three-Finalis02122013.html. You can also go on their website on facebook…

  136. This is pretty funny…
    http://www.mybargainbuddy.com/rejected-lays-potato-chips-flavors

    I like my Mitt Romney hates you flavors better though :)

  137. i think this is crap people put alot of time and heart into this and you made it political i will never eat your chips again and im thinking alot of other people feel the same way i do total setup

  138. I guessed Cheesy garlic bread. I sent a request for the entry date of the finalist. I received a form letter advising me the decisions was based on factors such as creativity. This would have changed my life. I am recenty evicted as I lost my job. This would have changed my childrens outlook on life .

  139. I can’t believe that you dumbasses actually beleive that Frito Lay would slander Mitt Romney on the product. Despite what anyones personal beliefs are towards him that would never happen you dumb fucks.

    Now that I realize it, Lays may announced a winner of the new flavor potato chip but I believe they are using this strategy to extract new flavor ideas from the public, in which I’m pretty sure someone’s flavor is on the shelf with a different name already. It’s ingenious. We’re helping the company out in a way. One million dollars to the lucky winner, but thousands of flavor ideas for Lays to poach on to make that million back and more. JMO.

    I would rather eat Mildew flavored PRINGLES before eating and Lazy’s products of chips ever again.Perhaps the junk-faced moron that thought of this contest can save us all some time and go walk into a wood chipper.

    This is a load of crap. The top 3 are not flavors, I agree with the others. We tried to come up with real and different kinds of chips and then someone gets the top 3 by mentioning a political figure. Maybe I should have can up with an “Obama Care Chip.”
