We were pleasantly surprised at how close all four finalists got to the real thing, but especially the New York Reuben chips, which were not overwhelmingly flavored and disappeared the fastest during our taste test. It's time to make reuben chips happen for real, America.
Official voting for the flavors starts July 27th and ends October 18th. The winning chip will get an extended national run in grocery stores, and the flavor's creator will get $1 million or 1% of its net sales through next July -- whichever is greater.
Ultimately, all four flavors are far from your everyday potato chips, but then again, they're still just potato chips.
