New Lay's Potato Chip Flavors Announced

lays do us a flavor finalists 2015

It's that time of the year when Frito-Lay announces the four finalists in their "do us a flavor" competition. Those who have been anxiously awaiting the announcement were not disappointed, as this years finalists may be the best (and most edible) yet.

This years menu includes Kettle Cooked Greektown Gyro, Wavy West Coast Truffle Fries, Southern Biscuits and Gravy, and New York Reuben. With over a million submissions, getting to the final four is a big deal. Each finalist receives $50,000, while the winner will receive a cool $1 million.


Here's a little background on the finalists and what inspired their flavor submissions:

Flavor #1: Southern Biscuits and Gravy

Submission by: Hailey Green of Noblesville, Indiana

image
“As a travel agent, Hailey Green has many opportunities to sample local flavors when exploring a new city. She has a great appreciation for each locale’s ‘homemade style,’ because it reminds her of her own childhood, filled with memories of eating Southern food in her grandmother’s kitchen. One of Hailey’s favorite dishes is biscuits and gravy — a recipe that was handed down in her family generation after generation. Not surprisingly, this family-favorite also inspired her potentially million-dollar winning potato chip idea.”

Flavor #2: Kettle Cooked Greektown Gyro

Submission by: James Wagner of Wichita Falls, Texas

image

“James Wagner has been in the Air Force for more than 18 years, traveling the country and abroad, and discovering local tastes at each stop on his journey. While abroad, James discovered his fondness for Greek cuisine, so when he moved to Wichita Falls, Texas, he immediately sought out the closest gyro specialty restaurant. As it turns out, there is one right outside the Air Force base gate. His flavor inspiration comes from his regular visits to that restaurant.”

Flavor #3: New York Reuben

Submission by: Jeff Solensky of DuBois, Pennsylvania

image

“Jeff Solensky helps manage a local restaurant in DuBois, Pa., where he pursues his true passion in life — food. Growing up in Long Island, N.Y., Jeff has fond memories of traveling into Manhattan to enjoy Broadway shows with his mother. A big part of that tradition was stopping by popular New York delis beforehand to enjoy signature, mouth-watering Reubens. Inspired by the delicious Reuben sandwiches of his childhood, Jeff came up with the idea to infuse those same flavors into a potato chip.”

Flavor #4: Wavy West Coast Truffle Fries

Submission by: Angie Fu of Irvine, California

image

“Angie Fu, a native Californian, has had a passion for food and discovering local flavors from an early age. She very nearly went into culinary school, but instead opted to keep her love of flavor a hobby. When Angie is home, she is constantly in her kitchen, trying her hand at new dishes and sauces. But when Angie goes out to eat, she can’t say no to truffle fries, even seeking out restaurants in the area that put their own local twist on her favorite side.”

On-The-Go Summer Vaping Tips


There's no better way to take advantage of the beautiful summertime weather than finding a great spot to soak up the sun with your favorite portable vaporizer! No matter where you live, it's always fun to grab your backpack and hit the road on a little summer excursion in search of the perfect vape spot.

With that said, we've come up with a few tips to help you leave the stress behind and ensure your outdoor vape sessions go off without a hitch this summer.

1. FULLY CHARGE YOUR VAPORIZER


This is a no-brainer, but also incredibly easy to overlook. There's nothing worse than grabbing all your gear and hitting the road, only to realize you forgot to throw your vape on the charger after the previous night's session. We recommend charging first thing in the morning, so that by the time you're ready to head outside and enjoy the day, you're all juiced-up. Avoid over-charging your vaporizer, as overall battery life can actually diminish if left on the charger for too long (which is why we don't recommend charging over night).

Many of the newest portable vaporizer models utilize lithium-ion batteries that can be removed and charged outside of the unit, allowing you to purchase an additional battery that you can always keep fully charged and ready to go. USB and car chargers are also great for making sure you don't unexpectedly run out of juice.


2. GET A CASE FOR YOUR VAPE


Even the most durable portable vaporizers can be prone to breakage if they're not properly protected during transit. While it may seem like just another cost to incur, purchasing a case for your vape is the best thing you could possibly do to protect your investment. We all know that dexterity can sometimes suffer after a big vape session, so you don't want to leave anything to chance. Just like you wouldn't buy a brand new phone and not protect it with a case, that same approach should be taken with your vape.

A case won't just keep your unit intact, it will also help protect it from wear and tear and keep it looking nice and free from scratches and dings. With specially designed cases for most popular portable vaporizers, it's easier than ever to keep your unit as nice as the day you bought it.

3. STOCK UP ON ACCESSORIES


It's always a good idea to keep a couple backup accessories, especially if your vape uses a glass draw-stem, which are prone to breakage during travel. Additional accessories are relativity inexpensive, so you won't have to break the bank. Extra screens and mouthpieces are a great thing to have in reserve, as it's always better to have them and not need them, then to need them and not have them. If you're more into wax pens that herbal vaporizers, then you know that having backup atomizers on deck is a must.

Much like a vape case, purchasing additional parts and accessories can seem like just an extra expense to incur, but you'll almost certainly need that at some point, so it's best not to wait until something breaks before purchasing a backup.

Check Out VaporNation On MassRoots

MassRoots, the social network for the cannabis community, has grown to over 375,000 users in just two years since its inception back in 2013. Billing itself as the Instagram for stoners, the MassRoots app allows users to post anything and everything weed related, without having to worry about the blow-back you might get on mainstream social networking sites. 

"The whole point is we don't want our grandmothers to see us taking bong rips on Facebook," says MassRoots CEO Issac Dietrich.

But MassRoots is more than just a platform for its users to post vaping selfies or photos of their prized nugs, it's also a great tool for dispensaries. 

"Currently, Google, Twitter, and Facebook ban most marijuana-related advertising. Dispensaries are solely relying on specific magazines and newspapers, so we are on of the only places business can access active smokers," says Dietrich. "Facebook and Instagram are deleting dispensary pages after they get too big...We're a great way for dispensaries to post and establish a following that will not one day disappear."


FIGHT THE POWER


All the numbers indicate MassRoots is poised for the big-time, but it hasn't been an easy journey. The app was actually pulled from the App Store by Apple, which then lead Apple to create a policy prohibiting all related cannabis apps.

MassRoots combated this by sending messages to their users, urging them to organize and help them fight Apple. MassRoots claims that Apple's policy was violating free speech, and was "stifling innovation in the cannabis industry," as well as preventing people with medical conditions from receiving crucial information about their medicine and communicating with other patients.

"As you have a community of hundreds of thousands of like-minded people, those people talk to each other and can be organized behind central goals to help move the indsutry forward. Our App Store campagn was kind of our first foray into activism and motivating our community to take action." says CEO Dietrich.

Apple eventually realized they were in the wrong and reversed its policy earlier this year, allowing social weed apps again.

MASSROOTS IN 2016


With marijuana reform sure to be a hot-button issue in next years presidential election, MassRoots is planning on getting their users involved by adding a voter registration button to the app. "We have eight states with legalization in some form on the ballot in 2016. We plan to help win every single one," says Dietrich.

VAPORNATION x MASSROOTS


VaporNation is proud to announce that we've officially joined the MassRoots family! We're excited to be a part of a growing community of people who share our interests. Be sure to download the app and follow @vapornation for exclusive deals and giveaways available only to our MassDrop buds.

Magic Flight Launch Box Still Among the Best Portable Vaporizers


There's a reason why Magic Flight has been able to build one of the biggest customer followings of any vaporizer manufacturer. By offering hand-crafted products that are affordable, uniquely designed, and easy-to-use, Magic Fight has separated themselves from the rest of the industry.

Recently, the vaporizer market has become flooded with mass-produced "clones," which all look exactly the same aside from the logo that's been slapped on the front. Magic Flight's goal to break from the mundane and create a vaporizer that looks and functions completely different from the competition has been received with open arms by the vaporization community.

Magic Flight's flagship unit, the Launch Box, is perhaps the smallest and most discreet portable vaporizer in existence. These vaporizers are hand-crafted and sourced from natural, renewable materials. Each Launch Box goes through a pain-staking 87 step assembly process, ensuring an unprecedented level of quality.

Available in many different finishes as well as additional laser-lid design options, the MFLB is a dramatic departure from the common matte black handhelds that are being continually pumped out by manufacturers focused on nothing else but the bottom dollar. Magic Flight takes a completely different approach, instead, focusing on creating a vaporizer that is artistry designed with unique functionality.


Magic Fight's attention to detail and commitment to their customers is clear, as they offer an unprecedented lifetime warranty on their vaporizers. Compare that to other vapes in its class, where a two year warranty is the norm. Few other manufactures care as much about their customers or stand behind their products the way Magic Flight does.

Building on the huge success of the Launch Box, Magic Flight recently released the Muad-Dib Concentrate Box, for use with wax and waxy oils. Staying in line with classic Magic Flight styling, the Muad-Dib features a very "noir" look, and replaces the Launch Box's familar acrylic lid with a brush-brass monocle, reminiscent of "steam-punk" fashion. 


Accessories like the Orbiter and UFO water filtration devices, as well as wooden draw-stems, specially designed grinders and power adapters add to the already massive appeal of Magic Flight units, and allow for a high level of versatility and customization.

Magic Flight vaporizers look and perform beautifully - and are priced starting at less that $120!

Who is Marshmello?


If you're a fan of edm, you've probably heard the name Marshmello. His remix of the Jack Ü track, 'Where Are Ü Now,' featuring Justin Bieber has received over 400k plays on SoundCloud in just thirteen days. Despite being arguably the hottest up-and-coming producer in the industry, very little is known about Marshmello.

Marshmello is currently riding a wave of self-imposed anonymity through the EDM scene which is only serving to capture the curiosity and attention of listeners everywhere. Aside from an apparent connection to Skrillex, 'Mello' has chosen not to disclose any information about himself, begging the question, "Who is Marshmello?"

There's been speculation that Los Angeles based producer/DJ Jauz is the mystery man behind the fluff, while recent clues seem to lead to Philadelphia based producer Dotcom. Some have even suspected Skrillex himself. However, there's simply not enough information out there yet to answer that question definitively. In fact, Marshmello doesn't quite understand the public's need to put a face to the music. Mello posted this to his Facebook page back in May:
"Reading these threads on reddit about "who is marshmello" and I'm wondering why people can't just simply enjoy the music? Too many people get caught up in building a name for themselves and forget about the most important thing...music. I say fuck all of that. I am marshmello."
Still very fresh on the scene, Marshmello has managed to build his "mellogang" to over 60k followers on SoundCloud, steaming from his debut track, 'WaVeZ,'

WaVeZ is a straight-up amalgamation of flowing neon melodies, booming 808’s and pitched-down dirty south vocal samples that sets a new standard in the flourishing “feel-good” trap genre. WaVeZ establishes a top-down, summertime vibe right from the get-go. Featuring a euphonious symphony of carefully crafted vocal pitching accompanied by a tastefully sampled Paul Wall hook (circa 2007), evoking an uplifting feeling of nostalgia while seamlessly incorporating panned arpeggiated synth-stabs along with a quintessential trap hi-hat arrangement which is sure to leave a smile perma-blasted on your face. Check out WaVeZ for yourself:



Marshmello is in good company, as his style is sure to draw comparisons to that of popular Future Classic artist Wave Racer, along with Trippy Turtle and Sluberjack. Marshmello has yet to annoiate fans with a touring schedule. However, with anticipation building to near intolerable levels, it’s only a matter of time before Marshmello is added to your favorite festival’s lineup.

Time is Running Out to Save 20% on the miVape!


Next week marks the arrival of the highly anticipated miVape portable vaporizer from Vaporfection. To celebrate its release, we're offering 20% off when you pre-order the miVape before it officially goes on sale. Enter coupon code "MIVAPE" during checkout to save 20%.

Unlike other portable units that claim to produce no combustion during heating, the miVape uses true convection technology in conjunction with a 100% glass vapor delivery system to ensure only the cleanest, purest vapor is produced. Here's how it works:
"Air is heated near the center of the unit, which then travels through a specially designed spiral vapor path and into the heat chamber. A quartz cup is attached to the mouthpiece, effectively suspending the cup in the heat chamber. When you inhale, the air passes through the glass spiral where it gets heated before entering the chamber. Hot air then passes through the holes in the cup, allowing it to pass through the herbal material. Vapor is then produced and goes through the mouthpiece where it’s split and then reconnects at the quartz mouthpiece before being inhaled."

Able to reach temperatures upwards of 430°F, and constructed from only the highest quality medical grade materials, the miVape also features a full rechargeable, propriety lithium-ion polarized battery, capable of up to two hours of continuous use. Representing a new class of advanced personal vaporizers, the miVape's pocket-sized convenience and unmatched performance are second to none.
