A Victoria-raised woman is letting all of Canada be the judge of her culinary creation.

Jill Munro is one of four finalists in the Lays Do Us A Flavour contest, where Canadians were asked to submit their creative ideas for a new potato chip flavour. Munro, a St. Michael’s University School and Camosun College graduate, came up with Creamy Garlic Caesar while bedridden following a debilitating snowboarding accident two years ago.

“I submitted something about about how caesar is the king of salads. If you have the choice at a restaurant, you always upgrade to caesar.”

Should she get the most online votes before Oct. 16, she’ll win $50,000 and get one per cent of her chip sales for life. Munro says she would fix up her aging car and donate some of the cash to spinal cord research teams at Vancouver General Hospital and the University of B.C.

“It would be a great way to give something back. I got so lucky,” she says. To view the finalists, visit lays.ca/flavour.
