Pringles Introducing White Chocolate Peppermint and Pumpkin Pie Spice-Flavored Chips for the Holidays
We love when food companies come up with unusual new flavors for their iconic brands, especially when they turn out to be more delicious than they initially sound like they'll be. But we don't really expect that to be the case with a new trio of holiday flavors Pringles is about to introduce.
In November, Pringles will introduce three new flavors: Pumpkin Pie Spice, Cinnamon Sugar and White Chocolate Peppermint. Yes, that's right, chocolate peppermint potato chips, which sounds like a box of Junior Mints melted all over your Pringles can. Which, Pringles company, does not sound like a good thing.
A Huffington Post reviewer has sampled all three new flavors, and the feedback is pretty much what you'd expect.
The White Chocolate Peppermint chips were called a "horrible abomination to humanity," "mouthwash gone bad" and "the worst potato chip … ever tasted."
Of the Pumpkin Pie Spice chip, which will be available exclusively at Walmart, HuffPo wrote it was "surprisingly not revolted" by the unusual flavor, but also called it a "potato chip-breath mint" hybrid.
Of the Cinnamon Sugar chips, which do sound like the least objectionable flavor of the new trio, HuffPo compared the flavor to Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal and suggested the chips might be best used as a crumbled up ingredient in cookies (great idea!).
The new Pringles flavors will ring up at $1.79 per can, and join a pretty diverse line-up of Pringles varieties that already includes Honey Mustard, Pizza and Loaded Baked Potato.
But forget how much you have to pay to sample the new Pringles … how much would the company have to pay you to get you to eat something described as a "horrible abomination to humanity"?
