Potato chip company challenge: Why no oregano chips?
Oregano potato chips available in Greece but not the USA

Some friends recently returned from a vacation in several of the Greek islands. I'll summarize their trip report as follows:
- Great islands, great people, great fun, great trip!
- Lay's sells oregano-flavored potato chips in Greece, and they're completely delicious.
As far as I'm aware, no chip company distributes oregano-flavored potato chips in the USA. That's a serious oversight, and it's a disservice to chip eaters. (The only oregano chips we've reviewed were sold by Elite Foods of Israel in association with Frito-Lay.)
So here's my challenge to the chip companies: You need to make an oregano chip. If you can do this and send me some, Taquitos.net will recognize your special effort to satisfy the snacking community.
We're looking for a chip company to mass produce this flavor and distribute it through your usual channels. No cheating here — this has to be a real product that you distribute and promote; you can't just whip up a few bags and send them to me.
If any of the chip companies are up to the challenge, let me know!
