18 Bizarre Pringles Flavors Around the World (Slideshow)
August 22, 2014
Sometimes the original flavor apparently just isn’t ‘original’ enough
Dill Pickle, Canada
Part of the appeal of a tangy dill pickle is the way the skin snaps when you take a bite of it. With Dill Pickle Pringles, the crunch is different, and the tang is a shadow of the original's.
Why eat a cheeseburger-flavored chip when you could just eat a real, juicy cheeseburger with chips on the side?
Pecan Pie, U.S.A.
Pecan pie is a classic American holiday dessert, so what’s it doing as Pringle crisp? Are we supposed to eat it for Thanksgiving?
Pumpkin Pie Spice, U.S.A.
Speaking of Thanksgiving, aromatic pumpkin pie spice, mixed with the unforgettable texture of a Pringle, could have potential. Those spices work well with sweet potatoes, so why not with the crisps?
White Chocolate Peppermint, U.S.A.
We’ve heard of salty potato chips dipped in chocolate or trail mixes with salty and sugary elements. But White Chocolate Peppermint Pringles? Sounds like a better flavor for hot cocoa than a chip.
Hot and Spicy Wonton, U.S.A.
We’re not too sure where they were going with this one. I mean, wontons are pretty good, sure, and Pringles are always a go-to snack, but mix the two together? Are we supposed to put them in our soup?
Rosemary and Olive Oil, France
Rosemary and olive oil sound classy, sophisticated, and refined. But once you throw them on a chip made from reconstituted potatoes, refinement goes out the window — though the result seems pretty popular in France.
In Asia, seaweed is a tasty addition to salad, soups, and sushi, or dried as a crunchy chip-like snack. Why stop there? In Thailand, seaweed flavor is added to Pringles. Surprisingly, it’s not the worst thing in the world.
Blueberry Hazelnut, Thailand
The combination of blueberries and hazelnuts sounds pretty far-fetched to begin with, but grafting it onto a chip?
Soft-Shell Crab, Singapore
Crunchy and delicate soft-shell crabs can be delicious, redolent of the sea and summer. Did Pringles really manage to get all those connotations on a chip?
Keema Curry, Japan
A keema curry Pringle may sound strange, but think about it. Maybe the flavors would be so rich and mind-blowingly intense, your life would feel forever changed.
Garlic Seafood, Japan
In the U.K., Prawn Cocktail Pringles are a thing, and in Thailand, Grilled Shrimp Pringles have their place on the shelves. But in Japan, seafood-flavored Pringles are kicked up a notch with garlic. Sounds like a scampi disaster.
Rock the Floor, Japan
What on earth does "Rock The Floor" mean? It sounds like a cocktail that could get you into real trouble. These Pringles are actually red chile-chicken flavored chips. Questionable.
German Sausage, Japan
German sausage Pringles? In Japan? Something just seems jarring about this.
Steak and Onion Pie, U.K.
Pringles took a British favorite and made it into a chip. Steak and Onion Pie Pringles are every Brit’s dream come true. It’s the simple things in life, isn’t it?
Roast Turkey, U.K.
Roast turkey is not meant to flavor a crisp, it’s meant to be on a plate with stuffing or a sandwich with lettuce and mayo. We wonder if there are cranberry sauce-flavored chips to go with it?
Hong Kong Fish Ball, China
Even though fish balls might be popular snacks in China, Hong Kong Fish Ball Pringles are not likely to show up on our table.
Grand Canyon French Fries, Asia
Grand Canyon French Fries… seriously, what does this even mean? A French fry-flavored potato chip seems redundant at best.
