I’ve bought and eaten Pringles for several decades. Product of choice is the Original style. Not overly impressed by the selections of flavored crisps.
I like the product because I can get my fill eating six or eight crisps a day; unlike the unbridled craving a bag of Better Made, Wise or Herr’s chips placed in front of me engenders.
So on to my personal evaluation of the Baconator Crisps:
PRO(s) – Dynamic, handsome packaging. Pringles states the crisps are Artificially Flavored. Kudos to the manufacturer for its prominent candor.
CON(s) – Not even remotely similar to the Baconator Burger taste. The “artificiality” of a first bite is jarring and quite off putting. You might ask, “What am I tasting?” But only a foods chemist could really explain the mash up of spicing in this train wreck. The after taste left in the mouth (even after just one crisp) demands to be washed away, eradicated by strong drink of some kind.
Going back to the Ingredients Label won’t give the consumer an “Ah ha” moment. Listed are the usual adds in a salty snack, and these… Tomato Powder, Spices, Paprika Extract Color, Tumeric Extract Color, and Red 40 Lake.
Final take? I will not finish this tube. I might save it to offer to someone I run into at a future house party, who isn’t a Best Bud. Kind of a gag gift, with the emphasis on gag.
