Randall Litman poses with a bay of Jalapeno Mac N’ Cheese Lays chips. Jalapeno Mac N’ Cheese beat the competition to become Canadians' preferred flavour in Lay’s Canada’s Do Us a Flavour contest.

HANDOUT/The Canadian Press

Jalapeno Mac N' Cheese beat the competition to become Canadians' preferred flavour in a potato-chip contest.

Randall Litman of Calgary came up with the winning combination. Lay's Canada says Litman will take home $50,000 plus 1 per cent of future sales of Jalapeno Mac N' Cheese on Lay's Wavy.

The variety of foods on the same plate at summer barbecues was Litman's inspiration. He says his favourite combination is when potato chips end up next to macaroni salad, adding some jalapeno to give it a kick.

In less than two months, the Lay's Do Us a Flavour contest received more than a million submissions. The other three finalist flavours were:

  • Bacon Poutine on Lay’s Original by Guillaume Lorrain from Trois-Rivières, Que.
  • Cinnamon Bun on Lay’s Original by Gloria Melanson from London, Ont.
  • Tzatziki on Lay’s Kettle Cooked by Denise Vella from Cambridge, Ont.

The winning flavour will be released across Canada in late November.
