Pringles Salt n Vinegar

Reminisce with me back during your childhood memories....It was so much easier being a kid! Eat.play.sleep.repeat. What was the one thing that you loved eating? Pringles!!?;) I loved all snack food, candy, chocolate, and sugary drinks. They were so irresistible! I remember going to the grocery store and being barely tall enough to reach up to the shelves. Pleading with my parents to buy me this and that. My parents yelling at me for eating too much junk food. Then suffering later for it when I had to go to the dentist. Scary.

Do you remember the Pringles commercials in the past? Heavily marketed with these slogans,
"Once you pop, you can't stop" and "Everything pops with Pringles." Which is true. I've never eaten one pringle chip and stopped!

Interesting facts:

-P&G chose the name "Pringles" from a Cincinnati phone book.
-First sold in the U.S. in 1968, not fully accessible until mid 70's.
-has less than 50% potato content

Whats the other 50% made up of?? (scroll down to see ingredient list) Pringles has been around before I was even born! The thing that's unique about Pringles is the packaging. No crushed chips! A hollow cylinder shaped package that keeps all the chips in neat order without most fears of crushing. The most notable flavors are the salt n vinegar and sour cream and onion. Original is also very good. (Haven't tried some of the newer flavors)

I love how they are stacked in such neat order and it makes it that much easier to gobble them down! muahha!

Taste factor: Tart flavors of the vinegar stand out and a light dusting of salt can be tasted. Taste very light. Distinctive Pringles after taste.
Crunch: Very good! One perfectly shaped chip can fit in my mouth to munch away at once!
Texture: Thin, no sharp edges (no poking the side of your gum's), crisp.
Flavor: 7 out of 10.
