A lady in Phoenix, Az is a finalist in a Lays potato chip

Hi there my blogger world peeps today that just as last week I've just seen someone who is a finalist for a lays "Do me a flavor" contest in Phoenix, AZ and so I say to myself like wow how did she do that? well her flavor for lays contest is called "Chicken & Waffles" potato chips. Oh yes I think I wanna run to the "7-Elven" or "Wawa" store to try me some new flavor potato chips because I gotta have one right alway.

Phoenix woman a finalist in Lay’s potato chip flavor contest

A Phoenix woman has a chance to make snack history and win $1 million if her chicken-and-waffle flavor is picked to be the next Lay’s potato chip.
Christina Abu-Judom was named a finalist this week in the chip maker’s Do Us A Flavor contest. Her rival flavor contestants are a Wisconsin woman, who came up with cheesy garlic-bread chips, and an Illinois man, a competitive kickboxer, who suggested a spicy Sriracha flavor.
Abu-Judom said the flavor was one of about 30 she entered into the online contest. Her first few entries were less exotic: feta, cilantro, basil. But she got inspired to suggest chicken and waffles, a meal she first tried after moving to Arizona and eating at Lo-Lo’s Chicken and Waffles, a restaurant in south-central Phoenix that, as the name indicates, specializes in the traditionally Southern dish.
She said the pairing is still not known in her home state of Wisconsin. “Why is it so hard to believe?” she said Wednesday. “You eat waffles with bacon and sausage. Why not chicken?”
Abu-Judom, 34, said she hopes the contest will at least get more people interested in trying the dish.
That was also the sentiment of Larry White, the nicknamed namesake of Lo-Lo’s, which opened more than a decade ago.
White said he still sees newcomers balk at the idea of chicken served with waffles and topped with syrup. “But once they have it together, they say, ‘Oh, my goodness,’” he said.
He said it is a sweet and salty day for the chicken-and-waffles movement. He hopes that, one day, the dish will be as ubiquitous as steak and eggs.
White, whose grandmother owns the Phoenix soul-food institution Mrs. White’s Golden Rule Cafe, opened his original restaurant at Central Avenue and Yuma Street in 2002.
A second location opened in a south Scottsdale strip mall in 2009.
The restaurant has become a Valley favorite, garnering rave reviews and being featured on national cooking shows.
Former Phoenix Suns star Charles Barkley sang the praises of Lo-Lo’s during a national cable broadcast from Phoenix and chowed down on some catered Lo-Lo’s, sharing it with his fellow NBA analysts.
White said Wednesday that he hadn’t yet tried the potato chips but was interested. “Nothing’s going to be like the original,” he said. “But it’ll get you ready for the main meal when you get here.”
Abu-Judom didn’t have to submit a spice, just the idea for one. Frito-Lay’s flavor wizards manufactured the three styles of chips and put them on grocery stores for a limited time, beginning Tuesday. Voting is on the company’s Facebook page through May 4.
Voters can see how their favored flavored chip is performing in the contest, but not the rivals.
Because she doesn’t want to give votes to her competition, Abu-Judom can only see that she’s doing well in Arizona, Texas and Florida.
Abu-Judom works for New Pathways for Youth, a mentoring non-profit. She has spent much of her career in the non-profit world.
“There’s so much I could do with that,” she said of the possible $1million prize. She is guaranteed at least $50,000 for making it to the finals.
“You work in the non-profit sector, you do it because you love it. You definitely aren’t doing it for the money,” she said. “What you do for money is come up with flavors for potato chips.”


Here's a news video clip of ABC13 news in AZ where they interview her on 02/13/13 and not only that her son who is 13 years old make that flavor of Chicken & Waffle potato chips.
