LAND O'LAKES, WI (WTAQ) - A northern Wisconsin woman has won a national contest to come up with the next great potato chip.
Karen Weber-Mendham of Land O’Lakes won a million dollars Monday night in the “Do Us a Flavor” contest put on since last summer by Lay’s Potato Chips.
She created a Cheesy Garlic Bread chip that was one of three finalists chosen from around 3.8 million entries.
Weber-Mendham’s chip then beat out Chicken and Waffles and Sriracha in an online vote.
Actress Eva Longoria presented the prize during a ceremony Monday night. Before she won, Weber-Mendham told WSAW-TV in Wausau that she’d use the money to help her three children go to college – and she might get a used car and shoes.
In her words, “I’m too middle class to go really crazy.”
