PHOENIX -- Phoenix resident Christina Abu-Judom is hoping her brain child -- Chicken & Waffles flavored Lay's potato chips -- will earn her a $1 million prize.

Abu-Judom's creation, plus two others (Lay's Cheesy Garlic Bread, Lay's Sriracha), have been in consumers' hands -- and mouths -- since February as part of Lay's Do Us a Flavor contest.

Scott Pasmore met up with Abu-Judom at a place known for its chicken and waffles, Lo-Lo's Chicken & Waffles.

"It's been really fun," she said of the contest. "We have had a really amazing experience."

Pasmore went table to table, asking patrons to taste-test the chips. Folks loved 'em.

"I've gotta give her props because it's really, really close [to real chicken and waffles]," one man said.

Voting wraps up May 4, so you still have a chance to vote for your favorite finalist flavor on the Lay's Facebook Page, via Twitter using the hashtag #SaveChickenWaffles, #SaveGarlicBread or #SaveSriracha.

There's also an option to vote via text message by texting "VOTE" to 24477 (CHIPS). Reply to Sponsor's text message with LAYS1 if you wish to vote for Cheesy Garlic Bread; LAYS2 if you wish to vote for Sriracha; or LAYS3 if you wish to vote for Chicken and Waffles. Multiple messages will be required for each Vote made via text.

The winning flavor will be revealed Monday and will remain on store shelves following the completion of the contest.
