Holiday Pringles!
 
I don't know what to really think about this yet, but I will probably have to try them just out of curiosity....

Coming to a store near you in November... Holiday Pringles!

Quote:

Pringles has a good thing going; people generally like the brand. We're thinking that Pringles must have gotten a little too full of itself though when the company brainstormed this year's limited edition seasonal flavors. Debuting in November are the following: Pumpkin Pie Spice, which is available only at Walmart, and White Chocolate Peppermint and Cinnamon & Sugar, which are available at stores throughout the country. You may be thinking that having a peppermint-flavored potato chip is a little weird. You would be correct. In fact, all the flavors are a little weird, with some venturing into downright disgusting. We tried 'em all, and here's how they fared:
Pumpkin Pie Spice: While "surprisingly not revolted" isn't exactly a slam dunk, this was probably the least offensive flavor. Still, the hybrid potato chip-breath mint wasn't exactly totally winning anyone over, though one person considered having a second.
Cinnamon Sugar Pringles: Do you like the idea of a Cinnamon Toast Crunch coating on your potato chip? Then Cinnamon Sugar is your gal. It could work nice as a cookie ingredient (paging Christina Tosi) rather than on its own.
White Chocolate Peppermint: Referring to this as a "horrible abomination to humanity" was actually not an exaggeration. No one could stomach more than one bite, with everyone thinking it was the worst potato chip they've ever tasted. Imagine mouthwash gone bad, and then put on a potato chip. To summarize, it was "wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong."
Want to try them for yourselves? The suggested retail price for all three is $1.79. We recommend a familiar standby though -- Pringles' original flavor.

Yea I posted this in another section and just as surprised that a potato chip maker is jumping in on the holiday flavors.

Oops, sorry! I saw it posted elsewhere online and didn't realize that it was already posted over here somewhere. :-?

Hmmm now I'm a pringle lover and I like being adventurous when it come to food but I have to say these flavours for potato chips do not appeal to me at all! The flavours sound nice but for potato chips ??? I don't think so. I doubt that we will get these here in the UK though.

Im with you on that the only one that might actully work a little bit would be the cinnamon & sugar. The reason that i might work is it might be like a thin crispy Churro flavor.

Well I was going to try this one because I like Salty and Sweet things but now I'll just save my money.

I definitely have to try these but the thought is a little offsetting. Who knows they might be a hit.

I like regular Pringles and these holiday flavors sound interesting to me.

GingerMel 10-22-2012 02:26 PM

Well now I'm really anxious to try them. hah hah. I thought already that cinnamon and sugar would be my favorite but if the white chocolate one is that bad...I gotta try it.
