We live in a world of leaks. Leaked albums. Leaked cell phone specs. Leaked political memos.
This morning, we have a brand new kind of leak — and it’s one that could rock your world to its very core. If you’re a huge fat-ass, that is. Or just the kind of person who really likes to snack.
For months now, Lays has been running a contest called “Do Us a Flavor,” in which potato chip fans (are chips a thing you can be a fan of?) were asked to submit ideas for the “greatest potato chip flavor ever.” Then, celebrity chef Michael Symon and actress Eva Longoria were going to judge the submissions.
The judging phase is supposedly still underway, but we probably don’t have to wait for the Iron Chef and the Desperate Housewife to tell us the winners. The good people over at FirstWeFeast.com claim to have discovered photographic evidence of the winners.
How do sriracha chips, chicken and waffles chips and cheesy garlic bread chips sound to you? Pretty awesome, right?
Before reading this news, I would have said that all the good potato chip flavors have already been done. After all, we’ve seen some pretty desperate attempts at new flavors — like chicken and Pepsi chips — in recent months. America really came through here, though. Sriracha is the best and there’s no way sriracha chips won’t be amazing. You could say the exact same thing about chicken and waffles, too (don’t believe me? Immediately get on a plane to Los Angeles and order the chicken and waffles at Roscoe’s). The cheesy garlic bread chips are less exciting (part of what makes garlic bread so good is the gooey texture, and that texture will be missing in chip form), but it’s still a flavor that sounds worth trying.
Way to go, America! There are a lot of things wrong with this country, but you’ve proven that American ingenuity is far from dead — at least as far of dreaming up new potato chip flavors goes.
