Hailey Green, a travel agent, entered her idea for the potato chips in Lay’s “Do Us a Flavor” contest and was named a finalist this summer, up against flavors like Wavy West Coast Truffle Fries, New York Reuben and Kettle Cooked Greektown Gyro, according to previous Flavor 574 reporting.
Green’s flavor won the competition and Green will get either $1 million or one percent of the flavor’s net sales through mid-July 2016, whichever is more, Indy Star reports.
Elkhart Dining Days is fast approaching, and we couldn’t be more excited about it.
The nine-day event from Oct. 30 to Nov. 7, brought to you by Flavor 574 and Lochmandy Motors, celebrates the best of Elkhart’s independent dining scene. Ten percent of proceeds from specials will go to Church Community Services to help folks in our community with food, financial assistance and job training. You don’t need a ticket to participate, just an appetite to help your community and eat great food.
There are 20 restaurants on the roster this year, including newcomers like Artisan and Bacon Hill and seasoned Dining Days restaurants like Iechyd Da and New Paradigm, among others.
Menus are posted on the Elkhart Dining Days website. When you go out, be sure to tag Flavor 574 and Elkhart Dining Days on Facebook, Tweet us your pictures @Flavor574 or use the tag #ElkhartDiningDays and tag Flavor 574 on Instagram, also using the #ElkhartDiningDays tag.
Just because you’re eating Italian food doesn’t mean it’s all about the wine.
The dinner has four buffet-style stations: miscellaneous (antipasta), IPA (served with tortellini), Porter (served with sausage) and Stout (dessert).
The dinner is from 6 to 8 p.m. at the restaurant, 655 C.R. 17, Elkhart. The dinner is $30 per person and seating is limited.
