Additional Comments:

To enter, submit your idea for a new flavor of potato chip. Your entry must include a name for your flavor, up to three ingredients, and a short essay about your inspiration. Check out to make sure your entry isn't too close to an existing chip flavor.

Ten semi-finalists will be selected on the basis of how delicious the flavor is likely to be (30%), whether your flavor is simple, straightforward, and fun (30%), and how original, sharable, and creative your entry is.

Three finalists will be chosen from among the ten semi-finalists after appropriate documents have been returned, and those three flavors will be produced and put up for retail sale.

The winner will be chosen by public vote.
