From our news partner, WSAW in Wausau:

When given the choice of three new flavors of Lay's potato chips, America voted in favor of Cheesy Garlic Bread, the brainchild of Karen Weber-Mendham of Land O'Lakes, WI.

In a ceremony Monday night, Weber-Mendham was named the winner of the Lay's Do Us a Flavor contest and presented with a check of $1 million by actress Eva Longoria.

Before she won, Weber-Mendham told NewsChannel 7 she'd most likely use the money to put her three children through college. "I'm too middle class to go really crazy," Weber-Mendham said in an April interview. "I might get a new used car. and shoes. So Kohl's, look out."

Cheesy Garlic Bread beat out Chicken and Waffles and Sriracha flavored chips to win the grand prize.
