FTQA 072 - Do Us a Flavor: Taste Testing as a Family Event

October 26, 2015

Frito Lay ran a Do Us a Flavor campaign where unique flavor recipes were submitted, four were chosen and produced, and consumers had a chance to taste and vote for a limited time. 

Emma and Olivia decided to make a family event out of it and spent a couple weeks gathering the four finalist flavors from Do Us a Flavor. The flavors were the following:
  • Kettle-Cooked Greektown Gyro
  • Wavy West Coast Truffle Fries
  • Southern Biscuits and Gravy
  • New York Reuben
Listen to what we thought of each flavor, and how we voted. Heck, try something like this with your family. Pick some new flavors and take turns trying, describing and voting on your favorite. Our family relationships are strengthened through conversation and food is a great facilitator.
