Hear-ye! Hear-ye!! Pringles holiday pandemonium has arrived! That’s right, time to put up those Christmas lights, get those shovels out, start brining those turkeys, and of course trying out the limited edition weird Pringles seasonal flavors!!
Lucky for all of us – these are fantastic!! Really, really lip-smackingly tasty! We didn’t expect as much, but these are so good we want to write Pringles a letter and tell them to remove that Limited Time Only! label from the canister and keep these beauties around all years long!!
Initially, these Tortillas evoked thoughts of churros. You know, those long, tubular shaped, fried “doughnuts” from Spain that are often dusted with cinnamon and sugar, and can be eaten while walking the streets of Madrid? However, by pairing the cinnamon and sugar with a crunchy corn tortilla base, we would classify these as Mexican churros! Either which way we call it, we still end up with delicious Pringles!
The classic combination of cinnamon and sugar always evokes our inner most childhood memories. Seriously, our memories associated with the joy of devouring slice upon slice of buttery, cinnamon and sugar toast is so strong, we wonder if that is all we ate growing up?! The near perfect harmony of the sweet, salty and earthy aromatic notes come together with an explosion in our mouths! Luckily for all of us, Pringles has hit that combo right on the crisp!! What really helps these Tortillas to solidify their near perfect harmony is the right amount of salt to help counter and compliment the cinnamon and sugar. Throw the three ingredients onto a delicious corn tortilla crisp and you’ve got some lip-smacking seasonal crisps!
If you have not yet introduced yourself to Pringles Tortillas line of crisps, we wonder why you are reading this?!? You’re reading a review of chips, you must be a fan of salty (sometimes sweet) and crunchy snacks, and we’ve been trying to tell you that Pringles Tortillas are among the really good ones for a while now. So, what are you waiting for, get out there and give them a crunch!!
Let’s try to understand the intricacies of Pringles corn Tortillas crisps themselves. The 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 like we’ve already said, it pairs very well with this seasoning. If we had to pinpoint what we actually don’t love about these crisps, it would most likely be that due to the crisps strong, lingering sweet presence, we cannot crunch as many of them as we would like to. Downing an entire canister of these would most likely result in some form of diabetic shock to any of us!!
Great job Pringles! Thanks for continuing to push the flavor combo boundaries, and dabbling in flavors that most other chip companies wouldn’t ever think of trying! As long as you keep coming up with these unique flavors, we’ll keep trying them out!
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
