NEW YORK - America is saying no to cappuccino flavored potato chips, but yes to "Wasabi Ginger." ''Wasabi Ginger" has won this year's Frito-Lay contest that gives people a chance to create a new flavor.

Bags of the four finalist flavors hit store shelves in late July, and people have been going on Facebook and Twitter to vote for their favorites.

Some taste-testers described cappuccino flavored chips as "NASTY" and "gross." The other two finalists were "Mango Salsa" and "Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese."

Registered nurse Meneko Spigner McBeth of Deptford, New Jersey, came up with the wasabi ginger flavor, and she'll be awarded either $1 million or a portion of a year in sales, whichever figure is greater.

The "Do Us A Flavor" promotion was held in other countries too, including Saudi Arabia, which voted for "Pizza" flavor and Serbia, which made "Pickled Cucumber" Number 1.
