(NEWSER) – Good news, Americans: You don't live in a country that tolerates cappuccino-flavored potato chips. But if Wasabi Ginger sounds equally dubious, well, pack your bags, because that's the winner of Lay's contest that gives people a chance to create a new flavor. Also-ran finalists included Mango Salsa and Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese.

About 1 million total votes were cast online for the Do Us A Flavor promotion. Bags of the four finalist flavors hit shelves in late July and people were able to vote on Facebook and Twitter for their favorites through this past weekend. It was the second year for the US contest, which is designed to send customers to stores in search of the flavors. Last year's winner, Cheesy Garlic Bread, is still on shelves.
