Meneko Spigner McBeth has been named the winner of Frito-Lay’s “Do Us a Flavor” contest. Meneko Spigner McBeth’s bank account is about to have quite a few additional zeros.
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, reports NBC4 New York.
McBeth’s winning idea for wasabi-ginger chips beat out entries for cappuccino, mango salsa, and cheddar-bacon mac and cheese flavors.
Her wasabi-ginger fascination grew the first time she tasted the combination while eating sushi. “That was the way I had to have my sushi from now on,” she told the news station.
