I didn’t win


I didn’t win a million dollars.

Was it a possibility? Yes! It was for all of us. I entered the Lay’s potato chip contest. Come up with an idea for a new chip flavor and win $1,000,000. The finalists were announced this week and unfortunately none of the five fantastic flavors I came up with made the cut.

The finalists? Southern Biscuits and Gravy, New York Reuben, West Coast Truffle Fries, and Greektown Gyro.

Southern Biscuits and Gravy? Didn’t Lay’s already do a Chicken ‘n Waffles chip?

The finalists get their name on their bag and $50,000, and the one that gets the most votes from the public gets a million or 1% of net sales for the next year. I guess I don’t get any of that. All of my potato chip-related money fantasies are gone.

Currently my flavor is Disappointment, with a hint of Frustration.
