The American Flag Made of Potato Chips – in the Flatiron Plazas

With July 4th coming up, we’re ready for all manner, shape and form of Old Glory to be front and center – but I must admit I did a double take on my way to work on Wednesday morning! This week’s promotional event on the Flatiron Public Plazas featured an over-sized American flag right on the south end of the North Plaza. As I crossed 5th Avenue and 23rd Street and the large flag came into view, it gradually became apparent to me – and some other early morning strollers – that this flag was made up of hundreds of bags of potato chips arranged to make the image of the Stars and Stripes. Yes, it’s Crazy Hot popchips – the latest hyper-spicy (and tasty) potato chip snack being promoted to the max,
along with an assortment of July 4th games, including a bean bag toss for the adults, building blocks for the kids, “dunk the salesman”, along with a huge supply, of course, of free chips. What is a “Crazy Hot popchip”? Well, yours truly tasted one, and it is a hyper-spicy, hyper tasty hot – and I mean HOT! – potato chip – definitely a world apart from your typical potato chips. And what would a Flatiron Plaza promotion be without a trendy social media-based contest – in this case, snap a pic of the proceedings in the Flatiron Plazas, post your visuals to hashtags #popchips #eattheheat #nyc and become eligible for – of course – a year’s supply of popchips!
Here’s a quick Flatiron Hot! News Video Clip for those who missed the fun and games, and their free bag of popchips. And click here for a write-up of the Flatiron popchips extravaganza by NYC Seminar and Conference Center’s summer 2015 class of intrepid interns, who attended and participated in the fun and games, as well.
