– Prince Edward Island Scalloped Potatoes by Jordan Cairns of Burlington, Ontario, inspired by his favourite side dish at family dinners and the spuds' cultivation in Atlantic Canada.

The winning flavour will be announced in late November and its creator will get 50-thousand dollars plus one per cent of their flavour's future sales.
