    NEW YORK — Lay’s potato chips are getting cheesier.

    Fans voted to keep the potato chip maker’s Cheesy Garlic Bread flavor on store shelves until at least the end of the year as part of the company’s nearly yearlong promotion that solicited customers’ flavor ideas.

    Cheesy Garlic Bread beat out two other fan-submitted flavors: a maple-syrup tasting Chicken & Waffles and Sriracha, which tastes like the hot sauce that is often used in Thai dishes.


    Karen Weber-Mendham, a children’s librarian from Land O’Lakes, Wis., submitted the Cheesy Garlic Bread flavor and will receive $1 million or 1 percent of sales, whichever is higher.

    The winning flavor will stay on store shelves at least until the end of the year and the others for the summer.
