Rating: ©©©-1/2 chips (notable)
These ‘Limited Time Only’ Pringles made their debut along side their alter ego Lime & Black Pepper flavor (the combo just didn’t really work for us), which, to be honest, we weren’t the biggest fans.
As for the Sea Salt & Pepper crisps, they’re alright. Definitely not the best S&P chips we’ve tasted, but at the same time not the worst. In fact, as we worked our way down the canister, we came to the conclusion that the S&P seasoning was a pretty decent recipe, but it just didn’t jive well with Pringles potato crisps.
The seasoning consisted of loads of salt, and a modestly up front pepper flavor. While we appreciated how the pepper had been pulverized into a dust, or fine powder per se, we wished that it had exhibited a bit more conviction. Perhaps more akin to many of the S&P chips on the market, and definitely something that contrasted the considerable amount of salt a bit better.
For another (maybe more positive) take on these, along with our recently reviewed Lime & Black Pepper Pringles, check out Junk Food Guy.
As always, these are our thoughts. Agree or disagree, make sure to let us know.
