Around the World: Lay's Canada - New Lay's "Do Us A Flavour" Potato Chips

Similar to the US earlier this year, Frito Lay is conducting the finalist voting stage of the Canadian Lay's "Do Us a Flavor" contest where fans suggest new flavors ideas for a chance for their ideas to become actual Lay's potato chip flavors.

While the US had 3 finalists (Cheesy Garlic Bread, Lay's Chicken & Waffles, and Sriracha) that were made into chip flavors, Canada has four (Why did we only get three?!) flavors currently available for a limited time: Creamy Garlic Caesar, Grilled Cheese & Ketchup, Maple Moose, and Perogy Platter. Don't you worry; Maple Moose is actually just maple flavor with no moose or moose flavor involved.

The Canadian finalists were chosen from over 600,000 flavor ideas and the people behind them will vie for $50,000 (Canadian) plus 1 percent of the flavor's sales (starting after finalists are chosen).

Voting can be done both online and by text and runs through October 16, 2013. The winning flavor will be announced in November. Full rules can be found at

    We only just got the three contest flavors in this part of California this week! The Canadian ones look more interesting than ours were.

  2. Grilled cheese and ketchup sounds really good to me.

  3. I would have to go with Creamy Garlic Caesar and Maple Moose. Maybe Perogy Platter but that's it. Grilled Cheese with Ketchup on it? Ketchup?

    Yeah..grilled cheese & ketchup and the perogy one sounds WORLDS better that chicken & waffles and sriracha tasted.

  5. Yumm! The Canadian ones and Cheesy Garlic Bread, I would eat. But Chicken and Waffle???? And what is Srarita?

  6. Curried Chicken Flavor please. Tudor used to do these in the UK and they are superb!

  7. Flavors that I'd love to see.
    -Chicken Madras

    -Shrimp Cocktail
    -Fried Beef and Onions

  8. MAPLE MOOSE is the most disgusting chip I have ever tried to choke down!! after 5 attempts, the bag went in the garbage!! DISGUSTING

  9. Perogy platter and creamy garlic caesar are awful imo. might attempt the other two but I doubt they are any better

  10. I didn't like any of the Canadian ones, but I'm in Belgium right now and tried the worst one yet. New York Hotdog is completely disgusting. Do they make these voted flavours taste like shit on purpose.

    is there still a way to send a flavor to lays?

  12. The contest is over, but I think they'll probably do it again next year.
