Lay's "Do Us a Flavor" Taste Test: Mango Salsa, Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese, Wasabi Ginger, and Cappuccino

We got some pretty strong reactions to this year's Lay's "Do Us a Flavor" contest chips.
The Guilty Pleasure: Lay's Do Us a Flavor Contest Finalists
Where to Get It: We found all four varieties at Target
Price: Ranges from $3.79 to $3.79 per bag
What It Really Costs: From what we can tell, no one will like all four flavors so you're going to have at least two unpleasant experiences while taste testing.
You might remember the first time Lay's did the "Do Us a Flavor" contest -- you know, the thing where millions of regular people get to submit ideas for chip flavors and then Lay's picks finalists, makes them, and allows the public to vote for a winner.
Well, it's back. And this time, the flavor finalists include Mango Salsa, Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese, Wasabi Ginger, and Cappuccino. New to this year's contest is a variety of chip styles. So while the Cappuccino and Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese flavors come on classic Lay's chips, it's the kettle cooked Lay's that get the Wasabi Ginger treatment and wavy Lay's that are coated with Mango Salsa seasoning.
Anyway, here's how they taste.
