The Cheese and Onion Pringles have been out for a little while now. Not the newest flavour in the range. Cheese and Onion is 1 of the wife's favourite flavours of Crisps, so we often can have this flavour in the house. Pringles can cost around the £2 mark for the 170g tube, but often they are on offer. Seems to be since after Christmas when they are always on offer then the rest of this year they have been on offer quite a lot. Currently selling for 95p in Tesco. Sounds odd but I think because of the upcoming World Cup that a lot of the snack food ends up on special offer. This is in the normal Pringles tube. A thick enough cardboard tube with a foil lid covering and a plastic lid on the top to keep the Crisps fresh when opened. The colour of the tube is a quite deep green colour with the pringles branding on the front. easy to spot as think most people know what to look out for. The Crisps are all stacked on top of each other as how Pringles are. Now on the packaging it states that there is 90 Crisps per pack, which seems good for the 95p price. Even the £2 price seems ok for all these. Sure we know how Pringles are. Thin enough Crisps with a slight curve to them. You can smell the Cheese and Onion flavouring when the pack is opened. It doesn't smell too strong, but there is a nice tangy scent to it. When you eat these you get a nice flavour from them as well. The Cheese seems Milky and more a lighter Cheese as opposed to a Cheddar and the Onion is slightly tangy without being too strong. Easy to keep eating the pack once it is opened, but a fair few calories in the tube. A really nice flavour of Pringles and probably one of my favourite ones as well.
Over the last couple of weeks, I have eaten nearly every flavour of Pringles in existence. They have been on special offer in Tesco, at the very affordable price of 95p. Unfortunately, from tomorrow, they are back to their horrendous full price of £2.03, so I won't be eating them for a while again. I do have to own up to being a Pringles addict and can consume a whole tub in a day. I especially love eating them at the weekend, curled up watching a good movie. One of my favourite flavours of Pringles is Cheese & Onion. To me these two flavours make the perfect combination and I can't get enough of them. They come in a dark green coloured tube, which is made of strong cardboard. On top, there is a plastic pop off lid and under that is a foil disc, which seals the Pringles in and keeps them fresh. The first thing I notice when I peel back the foil is the oniony smell, which is quite strong. I really love onions though, so find this very attractive and can't wait to dive in. The Pringles are all very uniform in shape and are curled just enough, to be the perfect shape to slip over your tongue. They do look artificial and manmade, but this is not in any way a negative feature. It is surprisingly easy to fit a whole Pringle in your mouth at once and when you bite into them, you get a great 'crunch'. They are also very easy to eat and quickly melt away after a few chews. Although you can definitely taste the onions, they are not overly strong. Sometimes onion flavoured crisps can be too sharp and harsh on the taste buds, but with the addition of the cheese, you get a far more subtle flavour. The cheese definitely softens the onion flavour making them even more appetisingly more-ish. *Nutritional Value Per 25g Portion* Energy - 129 kcal Sugar - 1g Fat - 8g Saturates - 2g Salt - 0.4g Pringles Cheese & Onion are suitable for vegetarians. These are available in Tesco in a 165g tube for £2.03, but are regularly on special offer. At full price, these really have to be a special treat, but the special offers are usually pretty good value, so this is the time to be stocking up on them. The only difficulty I have, is stopping myself eating them all in one go and as they are really high in calories, this is not something you want to be doing to often!
When wandering around the supermarket recently I saw these Pringles on special offer. I decided to purchase a tube as this flavour is nice for dipping and I know that my fiance is a fan of them too, especially with a salsa or something similar. Pringles always go really well with anything spicy or any kind of dip really and with over 90 pringles per packet (as the tube tells me) they are pretty good value for money, especially when on special offer. These Pringles Cheese & Onion come packaged in the standard Pringles tube which is dark green in colour, has a picture of the 'Pringles Man', contains ingredients, nutritional information etc. Pringles have a curved shape to them and are very unique in appearance. There are lots of different flavours available and you can get potato Pringles or rice infusion Pringles. The taste is very crunchy, moreish, savoury and delicious. These crisps have a very strong cheese coating to them which is just delicious and so strong and tangy. There is just something delicious about these Pringles that makes them ideal for dipping. When I first tried these a while back I never thought I would be a fan of them as I never used to like strong cheese but these are actually one of my favourite flavours of Pringles now, I love the curved shaped to them and they are the perfect shape for scooping up delicious quantities of dips. I have recently tried the Rice Infusions and must admit that I was actually more keen on them than these, partly because of the lower fat and calories. However, these are still delicious and this particular flavour is a firm favourite of mine, regardless of nutritional content. I don't think you can actually get the standard cheese & onion in the rice infusion variety but I might be wrong on that, we shall see! There are 517 calories and 32g of fat per 100g which is probably the amount that I end up eating from one of the large 165g tubes. These are one of the flavours with the least amount of calories, even less than the original ones which is a great reason for splashing out and trying a different flavour! The shape of the Pringle is ideal for mucking around with, whether is pretending to be a duck or just seeing how many you can fit in your mouth at one time, there is fun to be had for almost everyone. Ingredients: Dehydrated Potatoes, Vegetable Oil, Rice Flour, Wheat Starch (Gluten Free*), Cheese & Onion Flavour (Flavourings, Onion Powder, Cheese Powder, Lactose from Milk, Flavour Enhancers: Monosodium Glutamate, Disodium Inosinate and Disodium Guanylate, Lactic Acid, Citric Acid), Maltodextrin, Emulsifier: E471, Salt, * < 0.3% protein (Codex Alimentarius). I am going to rate this product 5/5 as I found them to be lovely and savoury. I will be buying these again especially when on a 2 for £3.00 offer as they have been in my local Sainsburys recently or even better when they are half price down from £1.98 to just 99p as they are from now at Tesco.
This is one of my favourite Pringles flavours and I have been known to eat an entire tube in twenty-four hours. I love cheese and onion crisps so I was probably always going to love these too! The Taste These Pringles unsurprisingly have quite a strong taste of cheese and onion. As you often find with flavoured Pringles, the flavouring is not evenly spread across the Pringles so you might well find that some areas of each Pringle will taste more strongly of cheese and onion than others. The Price We usually do our shopping at Sainsburys, where a 155g tube of these costs £1.45. They are only usually bought when they are on some kind of offer so they are a bit of a treat. For comparison purposes, I've just logged onto the Asda website to check their prices and they seem to selling the same size tube for 71p. I don't shop in Asda so I can't verify that but if it's correct, get yourself down to Asda if you want to buy Pringles! Any Downsides? These taste quite salty and Pringles tend to be high in fat.
Once you pop you can't stop. Definitely true to say about all pringles flavours! Things have moved on since the days of only having sour cream and onion, salt and vinegar and ready salted at my disposal, and I'm glad to have some cheese and onion from time to time. The flavour of these crisps is quite different from sour cream and onion, which is of some surprise to me, because I always invisage them as being in the same realms of flavour. The cheese is really powerful, a definitely bonus in my books. There isn't much onion to be tasted but the careful balance between the flavours is really tasty. The design of the packaging is miles above all the other kinds of crisps. This sturdy packaging means your crisps aren't going to be crushed when you put them in your supermarket bag or just in the cupboard at home. Another plus for this packaging is that the sealable lid means that (if you can bear not to eat them) you can keep resealing and keeping the crisps for later. Great huh? The price of these can vary a lot, recently I purchased two packs for £3, although occasionally it has been a bit cheaper at say £2.50. Outside of these offers though a pack will average around £1.79 (in my local supermarket anyway!). You do get a lot of crisps for your money here and it's quite worth the price. The keep factor is also great because it means you don't have to eat them all at once or have them going soggy. The main bad point about these crisps is that if you eat too many (quite possible because they taste nice) you can start to feel slightly ill but it's impossible to put the pack down. The dust from the crisps (that doesn't seem to happen so much with other brands ) also gets all over your face, making it a food that you wouldn't want to eat on a date! The calorie content is also pretty high, ditto with fat, just like any other snacks it should be enjoyed as part of a healthy lifestyle!
I stayed away from Cheese and Onion flavour crisps for years after eating them almost non stop as a teenager. As an adult the onion breath scenario put me off the flavour and I admit to being a bit boring and sticking to ready salted crisps. This all changed after my last shopping trip to Asda though, when I noticed these Pringles on special offer. In the past I have always only bought Pringles when I'm having a party as the concept of a giant cone full of crisps makes me think of sharing! The tube is actually quite large, about 9 inches tall and round in shape. The packaging is marked with a 155g weight stamp. The base is metal and the top has a peel off plastic top which can be taken off and on with ease. The tube is sealed for freshness with a foil cover at the top. This can be pealed back and the release of air from the pack causes the familiar popping sound that the brand celebrate on their television commercials! Pringles are large, shaped crisps which are a gorgeous sandy colour. They are slighly curved - they remind me of a rolled up tongue, for some reason! They are close to 3 inches in size and if you want to eat one in one mouthful you have to open wide! The texture of the crisps is quite soft and they do seem to melt in the mouth. Whislt they are crispy and crunchy at first a couple of chews and they dissolve. I do like this sensation as I find them easier to eat than regular, hard crunchy crisps. The Cheese and Onion flavour range has an amazingly powerful taste and smell. As soon as you open the pack this spicy onion aroma floats out. The taste is very strong and moreish. The flavour is powdered onto the potato chip and you can feel this fluffy powder when you eat the crisp. I do find that after eating only one crisp I totally stink of onions, but this is an unfortunate side effect that I will have to learn to live with! The ingredients of Pringles, Cheese and Onion variety include: Dehydrated potatoes, rice flour, onion powder, emulsifier E471 and flavour enhancers. They are suitable for vegetarians and are marked as such. Nutritional values are also marked on the pack. A 25g portion of crisps provides 129 calories and 2.4 g of staurated fat.

Ok so Sour Cream & Onion are to Pringles what Bob Marley is to reggae but the Cheese & Onion ones are not bad either, these uniformly shaped crisps that are considerably more expensive than your average crisp, really taste great in cheese and onion. The flavour is very strong, perhaps more so than any of it's competitors or other releases. The crisps become soft the minute they go in your mouth, this gives you the feeling that a ball of potato, cheese and onion is being melted directly melted on to your tongue and the after taste is the kind that reminds you of the taste so much that you want to finish them off or buy some more. If you can pace yourself and be trusted with a cylinder of pringles then what you really want to do is get some fresh rolls, fill them with cheese, bacon and onion - whack it into a toastie machine and then put a few pringles crisps out as an unheathy side salad! If you do do this, be sure to keep the plastic lid to the Pringles to ensure they maintain their freshness.
