Pumpkin Pie, Cinnamon Sugar and White Chocolate Peppermint Pringles for the Holidays
We thought it was a little strange when Oreo came out with candy corn flavored Oreos for Halloween. Not to be outdone when it comes to unusual flavor combinations, Pringles is coming out with holiday chips in pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon and sugar and white chocolate peppermint.
Nothing makes me lose my appetite like imaging what a peppermint or pumpkin pie potato chip would taste like. The lucky (or not so lucky) folks over at Huffington Post got to taste test them and lived to tell the tale. You can probably guess which flavor they were the most offended by.
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 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.’”
If you want to taste these controversial chips for yourself they will be available in stores starting in November. Good luck.
