2015 Lay's Do Us A Flavor contest

Once again, Lays has asked us to Do Us A Flavor and vote for our favorite of four new chip flavors.
From January 20th - March 30th, entrants were invited to send Lays a flavor name, the ingredients, and the inspiration behind it.
In July, four finalists were announced. Just for making it to the finals, the four entrants won $50k each. Not bad at all.
Once America has voted, the winner will receive $1 million dollars, plus have their flavor become a permanent member of the Lays chip family. Let's check them out in no particular order.

Goodyear Blimp - Spirit of America retirement celebration

One really fun perk of living where we do, is seeing the Goodyear blimp flying by fairly regularly. The Goodyear Blimp Base Airport is based out of Gardena California, and regularly flies at least 5 days a week. The "Spirit of America" is one of three blimps in Goodyear's fleet, which covers events all over the United States. After 13 years of service, it's finally time to retire the "Spirit of America" and the public was invited to the send off!
