While one of the new multigrain Pringles flavors is called ‘Truly Original‘, I doubt that the founding fathers of potato chippery ever grew their own supplies of triglycerol mono-oleate. Yup, it’s still junk food but with the appreciable removal of dairy products and that annoying MSG these new chips finally give us an excuse to Pop the Top. Whatta ya mean, they don’t say that anymore? That was the last time I ate a Pringle!
The look of these chips is decidedly multigrain with little seedy things and a slightly browner color but the crunch and flavor is pretty authentic to my mouth memory. Salty, crispy, kind of oily and hard to put a lid on. I’m glad that Pringles finally came around and offered a tube of snacks without MSG coating its shiny innards but for the same price nowadays you can get a bag of infinitely more wholesome chips like almost anything from Garden of Eatin’ or Kettle Foods.
I’m sure there are years of embarrassing hand-in-tube rescue scenarios ahead for me but I’d be much more supportive of Pringles if they’d done this ages ago instead of hopping on the eco-green HealthWagon like everyone else.
