The one thing I will say about Pringles is that you get the most bang for your buck as their container is always filled to the top with chips. It’s way better than all that air you get when you buy a bag of chips. But I don’t think Pringles have hit a home run with their new idea.
The cheap company has decided to roll out eight new flavors all based on traditional Thanksgiving Day foods. I’m talking about flavors like Turkey, Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes, Creamed Corn, Cranberry Sauce, Green Bean Casserole, Mac & Cheese and Pumpkin Pie. Although these are just test flavors as Pringles wants to see how people react to it. So far, not a lot of positive feedback.

And guess what? Food and Wine reviewed these chip flavors and they weren’t huge fans of most of them. But here’s what Kurt Simon, the Pringles senior director, had to say:
“Pringles are known for bold flavors and endless flavor stacking possibilities, so this holiday season we wanted to introduce snack-lovers to a new way to enjoy Thanksgiving favorites. The Pringles Thanksgiving Dinner flavors are not only new but cover every course of the real meal – from the main event, to sides and even dessert.
Hell, all these flavors are even presented in a TV dinner-like tray, which will make you feel even more pathetic when you find yourself eating one alone on a Friday night.
And now let’s see how people feel about this idea:

This is neither Food or Wine. Automatic pass.

I like Pringles and I like Thanksgiving dinner. But no.

My grandfather used to say, “one day they’ll feed us horse sh** and sawdust, and we will pay good money for it.” One day is here.

Is that real? Because it makes me want to throw up.

Well, at least someone is into it.
