Inspired by Western Canada
Created by Brenda Boghean

Flavour Inspiration

For Brenda Boghean, heading to the rodeo is a tradition. One of her favourite parts of the festival is the delicious food. Beans, slow-cooked in BBQ sauce, served alongside her favourite cut of beef is the quintessential rodeo dish and really captures the essence of cowboy culture.

Flavour Inspiration

Darryl Francispillai was inspired by his South Asian heritage and love of Indian food for his Butter Chicken Flavour. It's one of his favourite dishes and a nod to multiculturalism!


Inspired by Quebec
Created by Zdravko Gunjevic

Flavour Inspiration

Montreal Smoked Meat sandwiches are emblematic of their namesake city's cuisine. Zdravko Gunjevic was inspired to create the flavour because it’s such a delicious dish that not only can be ordered in delis throughout Quebec, but throughout Canada and around the world too!


Inspired by Atlantic Canada
Created by Jordan Cairns

Flavour Inspiration

Inspired by Atlantic Canada’s reputation for potato cultivation, one of Jordan Cairns’ fondest memories of growing up was when he sat down to big family dinners on Friday nights and holidays. His favourite side dish at these meals was always the freshly baked, rich and cheesy scalloped potatoes.


  1. Fun!! I just learned of this competition this year (from you??). I need to follow along.

  2. I just googled and found an American version with flavours like Southern Biscuits and Gravy!

  3. Yes! My coworker brought in several bags of chips yesterday for us to sample but I didn't realize that there might be an American and Canadian version. My favorite of our bunch was truffle garlic potatoes but I like the sound of the scalloped potatoes. Though we love smoked meat--would love to try a smoked meat sandwich!

  4. Maybe the smoked meat or scalloped potatoes. I so rarely eat potato chips.

  5. I haven't tried any of the new flavors yet bu my daughter loved them all.
