Frito-Lay said Karen Weber-Mendham, 45, of Land O' Lakes, will receive either $1 million or 1 percent of the flavor's net sales this year, whichever amount turns out to be higher, after the potato chip-eating public picked her idea of a Cheesy Garlic Bread flavor over Chicken & Waffles flavor or Sriracha sauce flavor, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Wednesday.
The chip fans who suggested the other two finalist flavors will each receive $50,000.
The winner, which was chosen using votes from the public, was announced Monday night at a Los Angeles restaurant owned by actress Eva Longoria, who also served as a judge in the early rounds of the contest.
