Lays Potato Chips is expected to announce new flavors on Tuesday. The company had a contest in which they asked for suggestions for new chip varieties.


Let's move on from pretzels to potato chips with our last word in business. Why not - as in - why not make potato chips that taste like chicken and waffles or cheesy garlic bread?


Or hot sauce? Why not? We imagine that's what someone at Lays Potato Chips said because these chip flavors are apparently real.

MONTAGNE: That's according to the Associated Press, L.A. Times, and a number of folks who say they've already seen the new products in stores and posted photos online - this part of a contest in which customers offer their suggestions for new chip varieties.

INSKEEP: The company is expected to make an official announcement about the winning flavors tomorrow. One must only wonder what some of the rejected ideas were.

And that's the business news on MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep.

MONTAGNE: And I'm Renee Montagne.
