Lay's potato chips are getting cheesier.
Fans voted to keep the potato chip maker's Cheesy Garlic Bread flavor on store shelves through at least the end of the year as part of the company's nearly yearlong promotion that solicited customers' flavor ideas.
Cheesy Garlic Bread beat out two other fan-submitted flavors: a maple syrup-tasting Chicken & Waffles and Sriracha, which tastes like the hot sauce often used in Thai dishes.
Karen Weber-Mendham of Land O'Lakes, Wis., submitted the Cheesy Garlic Bread flavor and will receive $1 million or 1 percent of sales, whichever is higher.
The winning flavor will stay on store shelves at least until the end of the year and the others for the summer.
Frito-Lay is a unit of PepsiCo Inc.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
