Pringles

Probably as a result of my attendance at BlogHer last summer, a conference sponsored in part by Proctor and Gamble, I've gotten several pitches from Pringles, a recent of which read as follows:

Hello!

Let Pringles pack lunch with a punch this school year! Keep it tasty and crunchy and sure to start some conversations at the lunch table.

Pringles should be on every parent's "Back to School" list this year with their easy packable products that make lunch-time exciting and fun for the kids and effortless for parents. Perfect options to keep their lunches exciting everyday of the week, just toss them in and call it a night!
  • Snack Stacks: Each single-serve tub is designed...
  • Stix: A stick to dip spread and snack in three crispy...
  • 100 Calorie Packs: Individual portioned packs...
Don't forget that Pringles also make a perfect afterschool snack! Whether the kids are going straight home from school, or heading to an afterschool sport, keep Pringles on hand to keep hunger at bay!

Please let me know if you're interested in receiving additional information or product samples.

Thanks,

Then, at the beginning of October (I know, shoot me, I'm almost done with my NaBloPoMo clean out of my drafts folder), the New York Times Magazine published a handy info graphic of all the very many flavors of Pringles available world wide.



Who knew?

I had half a mind to write back and ask for samples of Tandoori Chicken, Jamon, Thai Sweet Chili and Butter Soy Pringles, but I restrained myself.

What would you want?

I've had Pringles a few times and thought they were too salty but okay. At World Trivia Night I tried one and they tasted like ass. Really really salty ass. Jamon - is that...ham? *visceral shudder*

I love Pringles. But my best buy is Lays.

Like the other commenters, I shun Pringles; however, Hazelnut might be good with ice cream. Indonesian Satay and the Thai one sound intriguing.

Unfortunately for my waistline, I do eat quite a lot of potato chips - gotta have that salt! - and my current favorite is a local brand of Russet chip.

I haven't had Pringles in years -- I prefer sweets to salty things. But given the opportunity, I'd be intrigued to try the Lemon and Sesame, the Thai Sweet Chili, and maybe the Indonesian Satay.

I have always loved Pringles more than I can express. I know they're basically pre-shewed and re-formed but that's OK with me! While I was in China last winter I grabbed up a bunch of surprising Pringles and similar chip style flavors so I'd love to taste whatever Pringles has to offer. I was sad that, by the time I got to them at Blogher, they were out of the honey mustard. I recommend the Screamin' Dill Pickle. Totally weird, totally awesome.

KayTar loves Pringles, the only flavor she eats is Sour Cream and Onion. We always have them in the house since it is one of the few carbs she will eat!
