NEW YORK, N.Y. - Lay's potato chips are getting cheesier.

Fans voted to keep the potato chip maker's Cheesy Garlic Bread flavour on store shelves for at least the end of the year as part of the company's nearly yearlong promotion that solicited customers' flavour ideas.

Cheesy Garlic Bread beat out two other fan-submitted flavours: a maple-syrup tasting Chicken

Karen Weber-Mendham, a children's librarian from Land O'Lakes, Wis., submitted the Cheesy Garlic Bread flavour and will receive $1 million or 1 per cent of sales, whichever is higher.

The winning flavour will stay on store shelves at least until the end of the year and the others for the summer.

Frito-Lay is a unit of PepsiCo Inc.
