Pringles UK

Several weeks ago, I wrote about my love of Pringles Potato Chips and asked to trade flavours with anyone around the world, swapping Pringles made in America with Pringles made in other countries.

My new friend Nick from the United Kingdom sent me an email and the trade officially happened last week. Right before Christmas, I mailed Nick three flavours of Pringles made here in the US (Pizza-licious, Jalapeno and Loaded Baked Potato). And last week, Nick was kind enough to send me the following flavours made in the UK:
  • Gourmet Sea Salt & Black Pepper
  • Tiger Prawn & Crushed Garlic
  • Thai Sweet Chilli & Lemongrass
  • Flame Grilled Steak & Carmelised Onion
  • Paprika
  • Texas BBQ Sauce
  • Light Aromas Red Pepper with a touch of Olive extract
I sampled all of them, as did many people in my office, who thought this was the neatest thing they've experienced in a while. Not sure which was my favourite, but I loved them all. After all, they were Pringles!

Thanks Nick - this was fun!


  1. Shrimp and garlic Pringles? The simple thought makes me want to heave.


  2. Can we save some of those for next Wednesday? I feel like my life won't be complete till I try Thai Sweet Chilli and Lemongrass Pringles.

  3. jessica... "save some"? you know dop is about his pringles. you think there are any left? riiiight.

    (i know, i know... you shared with your office.)

  4. Nick got shafted. He only got three cans! ;)

  5. Dop have you tried the White Cheddar? If you can't find them I'll send you some. Have you also seen the Pringle's Select (or Pringle's Gourmet or something like that)? They come in flavors like Sun-dried Tomato and Parmesan w/ Garlic. They're in a pouch bag and have the classic Pringle's shape, but yet they're bubbly like a traditional hand-fried chip.

  6. Ivan - yes I have tried them. Per. Fec. Tion.

  7. Sea Salt & Black Pepper...yum. When we were in the UK we tried all of the chips and said "Why don't we have these flavors over there." We thought we have it so good over here, but there's so many flavors of the world that Americans are afraid to try.

    Did you like the Prawn flavor - sort of interesting....

  8. You're very welcome Dop - I loved the Jalapeno and Loaded Baked Potato flavours. And everything survived the trip across the Atlantic in good condition as well, I was surprised!

    I have to confess that even I haven't tried the Tiger Prawn & Crushed Garlic ones yet... I'm not a huge fan of seafood so I've been a bit wary... but if you want more, just shout, I'll send another box over :-)
