We could have sworn that we read somewhere that these new chili cheese Pringles Tortillas were yet another exclusive flavor for Walmart….but the canister we are currently eating out of (which is the same as the one directly to the left), mentions nothing of the sort. That being said, we did acquire these new Pringles at, where else, Walmart of course.
We have been fans of the Pringles Tortillas line of crisps ever since we cracked open our very first canister. Granted, that first canister has actually remained our favorite flavor of the bunch to date.
As for Pringles latest Tortillas flavor, well, it seems to be ending up at the other end of the preference spectrum. That’s right, these new Chili Cheese Pringles are meh, forgettable, and tolerable.
Subtle chili, mixed with subtle and salty cheese, equals boring seasoning, on corn crisps that require a certain level of ummph to get the flavor job done. We will be sticking with, well, any other flavor before trying these again!
Like we’ve said in the past:
Pringles Tortillas are a heartier, denser, crunchier, and can we just call them a more “rustic” corn variation of Pringles traditional potato crisps. Their mouth-feel is similar to the potato-based Pringles, only less brittle on the bite, with a grainier texture. The crisps do still inhabit Pringles’ classically curved, oval, uniform design, allowing them to stack perfectly in their canister. And the corn flavor is definitely front and center within these crisps, and lit pairs very well with this seasoning.
Just in case you were wondering, here is our rankings for all of the Pringles Tortillas flavors that we have tasted / reviewed:
- Southwestern Ranch
- Cinnamon Sugar
- Zesty Salsa
- Truly Original
- Nacho Cheese
- Chile y Limon
- Chili Cheese
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
