Now that it's been crowned the winner, the Southern Biscuits and Gravy flavor will get an extended run in stores and other potato chip purveyors near you. But the real winner is the flavor's creator, Hailey Green of Noblesville, IN, who will get get $1 million or 1% of its net sales through next July, whichever is greater. She was crowned the grand prize winner of the contest on Tuesday night by none other than singer Nick Lachey, per the Yahoo! report. The three other finalists will each get $50,000, but decidedly less 98 Degrees in their lives.
Regardless of how you feel about this year's winner, everyone can agree it's a zillion times better than cappuccino chips. Never forget.
