Black Woman Behind Wasabi-Ginger Potato Chips Takes Home Grand Prize

Meneko Spigner McBeth's bank account is about to have quite a few additional zeros.

On Monday night, Frito-Lay announced that McBeth, a registered nurse, was the winner of its "Do Us a Flavor" contest to create a new potato chip flavor, reports NBC4 New York. McBeth's winning idea for wasabi-ginger chips beat out entries for cappuccino, mango salsa, and cheddar-bacon mac and cheese flavors.
