Lay's Russia has announced a winner for their "выбери новый вкус России" or "Choose a Flavor Russia" Contest. The delicious sounding Winner "Картошечку с маслом и укропом" ("Potatoes with Butter and Dill") was announced at the end of last month and can be found on shelves across Russia right now. It barely beat out competitor "Лечо по-домашнему" ("Homestyle Letcho"). Letcho, if you don't know, is an Eastern European dish of stewed Tomatoes and Bell Peppers... my aunt from Russia said that in Russia it is served cold and is comparable to Salsa because you can dip things in it etc. And of course, Potatoes with Butter and Dill is pretty self explanatory. The flavor sounds incredible and I would LOVE to get my hands on a bag of it. Butter and Dill compliment Potatoes so well, I can only imagine that they compliment chips equally as well.
I doubt I will be getting these though, as Russia just seems so far away. But if anyone has sampled these I would love to know your thoughts in the comments section below.
And Now, I leave you with this incredible advertising for the finalists....
