The Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese Lay's chip flavor is sure to remind your taste buds of your favorite comfort foods. These savory chip combination is one of the finale flavors left in running for the Lay's 'Do Us a Flavor' contest.

Lay's created the 'Do Us a Flavor' contest to allow consumers to offer up new chip flavor ideas and the winner would receive a small percent of the sales of the winning flavor combination. Many of the flavors are incredibly creative and they take inspiration from popular food items. The Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese flavor is inspired by the taste of a classic cheesy bowl of noodles topped with crispy bacon. The seasoning is meant to replicate the cheesy taste of the macaroni and cheese sauce along with the meaty flavor of fried bacon.
