Contest: Lay's Perú Un Sabor Para Ganar Winner

Lay's Peru has a winner! Of the 3 finalists in Peru's create-a-flavor contest, Maria's "Con Toques De Oregano y Queso" ("With a Touch of Oregano and Cheese") was the Victor. No big surprise there, as Oregano is fricking delicious! In 2nd place was BBQ and last place went to Peruvian Chili. Again, no surprise, BBQ is nothing special, and Peruvian Aji Chili already exists in the high end Lay's line.
Normally, here, I'd tell you to go get the loser bags before they disappear... but honestly, the most unique bag won. So, who cares, take your time and see if you can snag the Winner!

Lay's India wants to know what you like

For the past few weeks Lay's India has been asking for their Facebook fans to share their opinions. They've been posting a few photos for comparison asking what their fans would prefer. It started with a larger group of bags asking fans which title they preferred....

This collection had a few familiar faces in it like 'Deep Ridged' and 'Kettle Cooked'. The other 3 have the same font and are likely newly created lines. They seemed to resonate with Indian consumers, because they chose 'Relish' and 'Gourmet'. The FB page then asked fans to choose between those 2 and they chose 'Gourmet'.

 Now, Lay's India has asked fans to help them design the bags for an upcoming 'Gourmet' line...

These 2 pictures showed up asking fans which package design they preferred... personally, I like the White bags ;)

So, what does this all mean? Well, for one, it sounds like Lay's India will be launching a new line, likely called 'Gourmet'. It could be a line similar to the 'Sensations'  line that is out in many Countries.
If you don't know, Lay's India's regular line is ruffled like 'Ruffles' in the US, so it makes sense they would launch an un-ruffled range. It's also likely that these are some flavors that we might be seeing. So far the concept art has shown off "Sea Salt", "Sweet Chili & Sour Cream", and "Lime & Black Pepper". Something new is definitely overdue from India, so I'll keep my eyes peeled for more potential news.

Gotta Get At This: Margarita Receta Clásica

My favorite brand of Chips has a brand new collection! "Receta Clásica" is the new "Classic Recipe" or Home style collection from the Colombian chip makers. The 2 flavors being launched are "Sal" and "Alitas BBQ" ( "Salt" and "BBQ Chicken Wings"). These home style recipe chips, much like the "Tradiciones" collection, will stand out from the regular line by being cooked with the skin on and being a bit crunchier. In fact, now that I think of it, I don't know why these aren't part of the Tradiciones line. (Maybe because these are 'modern' flavors, and the others are 'Classic Colombian' type flavors... I can't really say). Anyhow, the more chips the merrier! So keep your eyes peeled!

Gotta Get At This: Lay's Wavy Dipped in Milk Chocolate

Oh, man, oh, man! I am too excited. Looks like these little beauties are launching today here in the States! Lay's has just announced NEW Milk Chocolate covered Wavy chips. The chips will be available until New Year's Eve 2013. However, a rep for Lay's has already announced that if the treat sells well, we may not only see them return next year, but also see more flavors like Dark and White Chocolates. I'll be grabbing these this weekend if I can find them to let you know how they taste. I imagine they will be epic... I love a good salty/sweet treat! You should be able to find these starting today in a 5oz bag, Happy Hunting!
