Review: Pringles Pecan Pie Flavor

Pringles Pecan Pie flavor is a limited-time seasonal holiday offering by the potato crisp brand.

A 5.96-ounce canister was $1.50.

These might be the least palatable looking Pringles I've laid eyes on. They're a pale yellow, almost off-white color dotted with shadows that are actually a light dusting of grayish brown seasoning.

Interestingly, the Pringles chips are pretty lightly seasoned compared to plain salted Pringles. They're actually just a little sweet and salty.

The sweetness is tinged with a caramelized maple flavor that doesn't bring to mind pecan pie at all. If you try really hard, you might imagine a slightly nutty end note that gone before you can place it.

Underneath it all, you can still taste the familiar dehydrated potato taste of Pringles. If you've never had them, they taste somewhat like dry French fries.

Overall, Pringles Pecan Pie flavor aren't bad at all, but more like Pringles Maple flavor. It's not too heavy on the seasoning and that's a good thing. If you're into novel sweet and salty flavors, it might be worth a try.
