If you see a Pringles canister, chances are pretty good that you’ll recognize it. The brand’s logo, packaging and stacking chip shape are probably familiar even to small children. I recently had a chance to try samples of new Pringles flavors, and also have some Pringles fun facts to share.
In addition to having varieties to suit every taste, Pringles chips are also a great deal when it comes to snack items. You can buy them at almost any grocery store or drug store you encounter, and they’re often on sale. Plus, their canister’s shape makes them much easier to transport to picnics and other outings than traditional bags of chips.

New Pringles Flavors
We tried the Pringles Lightly Salted Cheddar flavor chips first. We all thought they were tasty, though my 11-year-old daughter prefers saltier chips. They’d be great for someone who is watching sodium intake or for anyone who experiences burning gums from very salty snacks.
If you enjoy a uniquely flavored snack, check out Pringles Hot Diggity Dog chips. They taste like – you guessed it – hot dogs. My older daughter loved them even though she doesn’t like hot dogs. My 6-year-old daughter and I also enjoyed them, and had to pry some away from the older child, who wanted to monopolize the whole can.
You might want to try the Hot Diggity Dog flavor along with a Pringles Tortillas Chili Cheese chip for the taste of a chili dog. Of course, the Pringles Tortillas Chili Cheese chips also taste fantastic by themselves. That’s one of the great things about Pringles in general. They don’t really need dip, salsa or other accompaniments. They’re tasty right out of the canister.
The kids thought the Tortillas Chili Cheese chips were a bit too spicy for their tastes, but I didn’t think they were overly spicy at all. In case these new Pringles flavors don’t strike your fancy, you’ve certainly got plenty of other options when it comes to this iconic snack brand.
You can try jalapeño, salt and vinegar, pizza, French onion dip, ranch or original Pringles, among others. Pringles Tortillas offers flavors such as nacho cheese, southwestern ranch, original and zesty salsa.
In addition to the commonly recognized Pringles canister, you can also find some Pringles flavors in Grab & Go packs or snack-size cans. You can also find low fat and low salt varieties of Pringles.
Pringles Fun Facts
People can get creative with Pringles cans, as you’ll see if you search YouTube for Pringles videos. Some folks use them to make Wi-Fi antennas, smartphone speaker amplifiers, planters and many more interesting items.
According to the company, if you stacked up all of the Pringles sold in one year, they’d stretch halfway to the moon. The company also says that the architecture of the 2000 summer Olympics stadium in Sydney was inspired by a Pringles crisp.
Julius Pringle, the iconic Pringles mascot, has changed slightly through the years, but he’s always maintained his curvy moustache. He has only two allowed facial expressions currently – winking or lip licking.
