A Deptford Township woman stands to make a million bucks or more for coming up with a hot idea for Frtito-Lay, according to WISH-TV and the Associated Press.

Four different kinds of flavored potato chips went on sale in July, and customers have voted, via Facebook and Twitter, for their favorite.

There were cappuccino chips — some described them as “nasty” or “gross” — as well as mango salsa and cheddar bacon mac & cheese.

But the favorite flavor was wasabi ginger, the brainchild of Meneko Spigner McBeth, of Deptford, a registered nurse. She’ll be awarded either $1 million or a portion of the year in sales, whichever is greater.

The promotion, “Do Us A Flavor,” was held in other countries, as well. In Saudi Arabia, pizza was the winning flavor. In Serbia, number one was pickled cucumber chips.
