While it was noted during an unofficial, informal tasting of Lay’s trial of cappuccino-flavored potato chips by Consumerist’s Boss Meg a few months ago that the snack “tastes how the mall looks,” others out there might actually have liked the dusting of sweet, coffee-ish powder on chips. Those others, if you exist, are going to be quite bummed to learn that voters have instead chosen Wasabi Ginger as the newest Lay’s flavor.
Yours truly managed to eat multiple chips out of curiosity, after buying a bag in the wild just for the heck of it, but let’s just say it was merely my sense of adventure that led me to subject my mouth to that mall taste for an extended period of time.
And so it goes for oddly flavored snacks, as America has voted in Wasabi Ginger and said no to the coffee chip, Mango Salsa and Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese, reports the Associated Press.
According to PepsiCo, Frito-Lay’s parent company, around 1 million total votes were cast on line during the “Do Us A Flavor” promo.
Here at Consumerist, we pretend to hate holiday mashups while secretly loving them. Still, we have to admit that we were a little confused when we saw that Hallmark now has Halloween ornaments. Yes, it’s a long-established fact that the gift chain puts its Christmas ornament collection out in July, but we thought they were just that.
Artist and designer Daan Roosegaarde and producer Heijmans Infrastructure have debuted their test drive of Smart Highways, a sustainable road system for safer driving, on a highway in Oss in the Netherlands. Roosegaarde’s design put solar-powered Glowing Lines along the edge of highway N329, providing drivers with three edge strips of green light along their drive. During the day, the lines “charge up” with solar energy, and at night they can glow for up to eight hours, illuminating the route and keeping cars safely on the road.
Why is it that some of us bounce back from rough times, and others of us get sucked under? The spiritual teacher and author of the new book, The Future of God, shows us how to help ourselves and the people we care about.

Happiness has never been a simple matter.
It may soon be cheaper to fill your prescriptions at CVS than at Walgreens.
That's because Caremark, a subsidiary of CVS Health that manages prescriptions for insurance companies and employers, plans to start charging some customers more to fill prescriptions at pharmacies that also sell cigarettes and other tobacco products. The added copay could cost as much as $15.
The company is developing a "tobacco-free network" that will start next year and include CVS and Target as well as other local and regional pharmacies that don't sell tobacco, CVS spokesperson Carolyn Castel told The Huffington Post.
Oct 21 (Reuters) - A new poll on Tuesday showed Ebola ranks well behind the economy, jobs and other issues among America's top problems, while a law enforcement official warned about Ebola-related scams promising protection against the virus that has killed thousands in West Africa. Ebola debuted in the top 10 concerns of Americans but remained far behind five other issues: the economy, dissatisfaction with government, jobs, healthcare and immigration, the Gallup polling organization said.
