Who Knew The Finalists Were From Wisconsin??

So we were talking about the Frito-Lay contest where you got to pick the newest name for the next Lay's chip.  Well, it turns out that TWO of the three finalists are from Wisconsin!  Christina Abu-Judom, who created the Chicken and Waffles flavor, is from Brookfield.  Karen Weber-Mendham, who created the cheesy garlic bread flavor, is from Milwaukee and graduated from Wauwatosa East High School.  Pretty cool!  The winner either gets $1 Million or 1% of all sales from their chip, whichever one is higher.  To see the actual finalists and read more about them, click here!

Hey guys! I was just about to email my brother, Dj Devast8 about connecting with Wes and Rahney about the possibility of interviewing one of my best girlfriends, Christina Abu-Judom, the creator of the Chicken and Waffles Lays, when I saw this blog post from last month. She is the coolest girl EVER and you must interview her for the morning show. She totally could use the publicity in her home town:) I will get you her contact info via email. Thanks for the Chicken and Waffles shout out! Mimi
