Pringles can be found in the chip aisle, but technically they are not “chips” in the traditional sense. Most potato chips start out as thin slices of potato which are then fried in oil. Pringles are labeled as potato chips because the brand’s recipe uses dehydrated processed potatoes in its recipe rather than whole slices. In fact, the chips contain less than 50% total potatoes. A mixture of processed potatoes and other ingredients including corn flour, cornstarch, wheat starch, rice flour, maltodextrin, etc. are spread into thin leaves. Then the saddle-shaped ovals are cut, baked, seasoned and put in a box adorned with a floating head with a smiling mustache for the enjoyment of savory snack lovers.
Besides the flagship original flavor, the company is always experimenting with different ideas to keep Pringles exciting for its customers. If you are a lover of spicy food, there are more and more options for you. If you’re someone who prefers a crunchy snack, Pringles makes a wavy version that’s even crispier than the original versions (and the ridges capture more seasoning). We can’t forget the famous Pringles pizzas, which somehow defy the laws of nature and capture the essence of a slice of pizza in a single crispy chip.
We’ve tried to get our hands on as many flavors of Pringles as possible, but availability depends on location. Anyway, we were able to rank some of the most popular options to cover the basics of all things Pringles.
