Plano, TX — PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay fans have selected Cheesy Garlic Bread as the winner of the Lay’s “Do Us A Flavor“ contest, in which 3.8 million consumers submitted suggestions and a panel of chefs and celebrities nominated three flavors for fans to choose from.

Contest spokeswoman actress Eva Longoria hosted an event at her Hollywood Beso restaurant in honor of the finalists — Christina Abu-Judom from Phoeniz, AZ who submitted Chicken & Waffles flavor, winner Karen Weber-Mendham from Land O' Lakes, WI, and Tyler Raineri from Lake Zurich, IL, who suggested Sriracha.

Weber-Mendham will be awarded either $1 million or one percent of her flavor's 2013 net sales — whichever is more — and the runner-ups will receive $50,000 each.
