OOOOOOOooooooooo !!! Sometimes I just cant have enough of these. I buy them vaery rarely but when I do I am like MUNCH MUNCH MUNCH. You just cant stop. Plus it has 0 trans fat and its not fried. Whats your favorite flavour ? Mine's sour cream and onion. I am yet to try some of the others. I think I remember tasting a vinegar flavoured pack and it really sucked.
Pringles are a horrid subtitute for potato chips, but if you consider them in their own right they're palatable as a salty snack. Usually I'll opt for some proscuitto, olives and feta cheese -- after all, I am a food snob -- but every now and again, a snack like Pringles will turn the trick.
The Salt-n-Vinegar variety are the best! The Cheddar flavor is a close second. [ January 20, 2007: Message edited by: Bear Bibeault ]
Yes in comparison to premium potato chips pringles will lose hands down. But they can boast about the no oil and no trans fat thing. I am yet to try lays stax and I dont know if it is fried. Anyone tried it ?
When Pringles first came out I saw an expose on what went in them ... all the worst looking, most ancient and bruised potato scraps that could be ground up, bleached to a uniform colored paste and molded into a familiar chip shape. Still they got the (natural and artificial) flavor, crunch and salt ratio just right and the convenience is hard to beat. The new small packages are genius, too.
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
Originally posted by Russell Peters: I personally like the Cape Cod Kettle Cooked potato chips that I get here in New England. I am not sure if its available elsewhere.
It's available here is NY, but with a smaller selection. Last time I was in Cape Cod, I picked up a bunch of chips from the factory.
I really like the "Jalapeno and Cheddar"... for the first few minutes per day... then the Cheddar really gets to you. Yuck. It took me a long while to finish the large bag that I opened. And I gave the rest away.
The best chips that I had were in Hawaii -- forgot which island. It was from a local company that fried the chips on site. And I remember, on the bag was actually a warning to "not leave the chips exposed to sunlight" !!
They have the advantage of being humidity resistant, whether because of their formulation or because they come in a can. That makes them more popular in say gills-would-help Mississippi than here in semi-arid-oh-my-god-not-Santa Anas-again Southern California. Pringles do in a pinch, but I prefer chips from a bag too.
P.S. I'm just wondering what was in Bear's mind that caused him to say "turn the trick" rather than "do the trick".
My daughter and I like the Sour Cream and Onion flavor
Two thumbs up to that !

My wife informs me that my memory of bad potatoes going into Pringles is from a hoax source. I get old, I forget these things. We saw the real deal on TV the other night. The manufacturing process is pretty cool.

I just had lays stax too. I have been wanting to post that here but I was too lazy to hit the search button I think its exactly like pringles. Its not really hard ( where I bought it, it was not hard ) and it has a neat pull out box. I had the bell pepper and cream flavor and it was not so bad. I would like to try the cream and onion flavor if they have it
