PLANO, Texas, April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With the average adult consuming about 2.3 pounds of garlic each year *, the demand for garlic in the U.S. clearly speaks for itself. In fact, Americans regularly turn to the flavorful bulb to add a delicious twist to just about any dish – from appetizers and main courses to desserts and even snacks. And now, as fans across the country prepare to celebrate National Garlic Day on April 19, Lay's Wavy, the ridged-cut potato chip brand from PepsiCo's Frito-Lay division, introduces another way to enjoy this beloved spice with the release of new Lay's Wavy Garlic & Sea Salt flavored potato chips.

"Garlic is a tried and true flavor – one our consumers have loved for decades," said Jennifer Saenz, senior director of marketing, Frito-Lay. "With Lay's Wavy Garlic & Sea Salt, we've brought the popular flavor back with a sophisticated sea salt twist – for an entirely new ridged potato chip taste experience that can be enjoyed with a favorite dip or straight from the bag."  

In conjunction with the release of new Lay's Wavy Roasted Garlic & Sea Salt flavored chips, the Lay's Wavy brand is also introducing completely re-imagined packaging across the entire product line. Marking the first packaging change in the product line's 20-year history, the new Lay's Wavy chip bags will offer a more modern look and feel, with vibrant colors and a font that exudes the brand's approachable and playful personality to better appeal to its target female consumer.
