Who's ready for cappuccino-flavored chips? Frito-Lay says that is one of the finalists for its "Do Us a Flavor" contest, in which people can win $1 million for suggesting exotic flavors for the humble potato chip. The other finalists are Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese, Mango Salsa and Wasabi Ginger. The four flavors will hit stores this month and voting online for the favorite goes through Oct. 18. The contest reflects how Frito-Lay is trying to keep up with changing tastes. Later this month, it plans to roll out Lay's Stax chips in a Korean barbecue flavor and Lay's Stax in Thai Sweet Chili flavor. In last year's contest, Cheesy Garlic Bread beat out Chicken & Waffles and Sriracha, a type of hot sauce. But despite the growing popularity of ethnic flavors, the top four Lay's flavors remain: Original, Barbecue, Cheddar & Sour Cream and Sour Cream & Onion.
