News: New Pringles Tortilla Crisps

Pringles is branching out into corn tortilla chips with the introduction of new Pringles Tortilla Crisps. The chips are currently available at Walmart and will be available at retailers nationwide in January.

The new tortilla chips come in three flavors: Truly Original, Nacho Cheese, and Southwestern Ranch (Walmart also carries Zesty Salsa as an exclusive flavor).

Each Pringles Tortilla Crisp features the curved oval shape of regular Pringles.

Truly Original comes in 6.07-ounce canisters, while all other flavors come in 6.42-ounce canisters. The canisters retail for $1.50 each.

Some of you might remember a similar product by former Pringles parent company, Procter & Gamble (Pringles is now owned by Kelloggs), called Torengos. Like Pringles, Torengos came stacked in canisters but were shaped like curved triangles rather than ovals.

  1. I had the Nacho Cheese flavor. It wasn't particularly good but it was good enough to demolish the entire canister whilst intoxicated. They're just tortilla chips. Exactly what they're labeled. Though they are thinner than most tortilla chips, which was actually nice.

  2. These sandwiches are good but I was ripped off by one of my local Wendy's. I decided to go out after we've had freezing rain and try each sandwich for 99 cents each and I get there and they're...$1.99 each!! I don't know why they were twice as much as they should have been but I felt ripped off and duped by them. If sandwiches are promoted to be a certain price, they should be that price and not twice as much! Grrr...

  3. Wow double is a bit much even if you're in a more expensive market.. I could see something like $1.29 or $1.39 even, but they should at least be somewhat close. Wendy's franchises are notorious for this though.

  4. Simple solution, ask how much it is before ordering. Duh

  5. I see where you're coming from but there's no need to be a jerk about it.

  7. This isn't the first time Pringles has tried branching out into making corn chips... they had a line of "corn crisps" many years ago, which I vaguely recall from my early childhood:

    I remember them being edible but nothing special (and I did not care for the cheese flavored variety at all). I wonder if these new varieties are an improvement over the old ones.

  8. Yeah, I don't think it's fair to expect you to call ahead. :) It sounds like you specifically decided to head out to Wendy's based on the $.99 sandwich promotion, and then BAM, they're twice the price. Like TJ said, Wendy's is notorious for this. It's one thing if you're in Manhattan or Honolulu or at a tollway 'oasis', but at a typical run-of-the-mill neighborhood Wendy's you really should be able to assume the price will be at or close to what's advertised.

  9. I've heard they're the same thinness as regular Pringles so maybe not so much.
