Pringles has officially gone bonkers with the Limited Edition test flavors as of late……and these latest, Pumpkin Pie Spice, are landing just in time for the Holidays (rumor has it, they also have Cinnamon & Sugar and White Chocolate Peppermint as well).
So, do we love them, or hate them??? For us here at Chip Review, the jury is split right down the middle!
Half of us thought they were uniquely delicious. We loved the fact that although the flavor of these crisps were a sweet Pumpkin and Spice, there was still a nice presence of salt to remind us that they were in fact crisps. For some, the juxtaposition just WORKED. Also, some felt that the Pringles potato crisps’ consistency mimicked that of a crunchy pumpkin pie crust. Those who loved the flavor combo, really loved it!
Half of us thought these were a complete clash of flavors. We just could not get behind the combination of potato crisps with the pumpkin pie spices. Something just did not jive. It also really bugged us that there was no mention of actual pumpkin, or any of the traditional spices (nutmeg, cinnamon…), anywhere among the ingredients list.
To each their own.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
