Have you tried the wasabi-ginger Frito-Lay potato chips? If you voted for that flavor, you just helped add some zeros to Meneko Spigner McBeth’s bank account.
On Monday night, Frito-Lay announced that McBeth, a registered nurse, was the winner of its “Do Us a Flavor” contest to create a new potato chip flavor, according to NBC4 New York.
Thanks to her Japanese grandmother, she’s been eating sushi since she was a child. Her wasabi-ginger fascination grew from the first time she tasted the combination . “That was the way I had to have my sushi from now on,” she told the news station.
For her idea McBeth, from Deptford, N.J., will receive $1 million or a portion of the year in sales—whichever figure is larger.
