Pringles - Frank's Red Hot Original


For fear of sounding like a broken record we are not going to tell you yet again how much we love hot and spicy chips; nor, how much we love plenty of hot and spicy foods, and definitely not how we love hot sauces.  However, if we did happen to love hot sauces, we could possibly keep a list of our all-time favorites, and even perhaps rank them.  Maybe, just maybe, it would look something like this, if we in fact decided against not showing you it:

  1. McIlheny Tabasco Pepper Sauce
  2. Fuy Hong Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce
  3. El Yucateco Green Habanero Hot Sauce
  4. McIlheny Tabasco Chipotle Pepper Sauce
  5. Frank’s Original Red Hot Sauce

As you can see, we are big fans of Frank’s Original Red Hot Sauce, and by the sheer fact that it can be found on the shelves of just about every grocery store in the States, we’re fairly certain that we’re not the only ones.  Pringles has chosen wisely, and executed rather precisely.  So, for those of you familiar with Frank’s Hot Sauce, we simply have to tell you that these crisps taste like Pringles, dusted with Frank’s Hot Sauce powder – it’s as simple as that.

For those of you unfamiliar with Frank’s Hot Sauce flavor, these Pringles taste like vinegar, cayenne pepper and a good amount of salt.  There’s a respectable amount of heat, combined with an ample amount of the sharp, nasal vinegar burn.  The flavor compliments the Pringles crisp very nicely.

For those of you looking to calm some of Frank’s spicy vinegar punch, we’re quite sure that a cool dip in some smooth, sour cream, would most definitely help to quench some of that, and add a lovely balance to these crisps.  These are great Pringles.

As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
