While they aren’t the most versatile snack food – shout out to the many ways you can eat Oreos – people have gotten creative with how they enjoy their Pringles over the years. A staple snack at family picnics, days at the beach or after softball practice, the chips are a household food for most North American families.
So what if we told you that you’ve been eating Pringles wrong? This week, the Pringles company released a statement that is sure to make customers pick up a can and test the brand’s instruction on how to most enjoy your flavoured chips.
You may have noticed after finishing the can of Pringles that some chips are more seasoned than others. Turns out, the chip only has flavour on one side which can greatly impact the “consumer experience.” The brand admits the makers only season one side which can attribute to uneven flavour – affecting the overall enjoyment of the snack staple.
“When Pringles are stacked in their can, some of the seasoning rubs off onto the next chip – which is why they’ve always been a little uneven,” a Pringles spokesperson told The Sun.
If you want to get technical — and want flavour that packs a punch the next time you’re snacking — make sure to eat the chip with the convex side facing up. This means you should flip the chip upside down so the concave side is pressed to your tongue. While the convex side of the chip may have seasoning, this can be attributed to leftover flavour from other chips – and not strategic seasoning by the makers.
