“ Brand: Procter & Gamble / Type: Crisps „
We all know and love Pringles, and they are a staple snack at any family gathering with a buffet. Pringles have recently branched out and introduced a new range of 'extreme' flavours and are introducing some spice and excitement alongside their existing standard flavours. I got mine on special offer from Tesco's at 95p for a 150g tube. The packaging has had a bit of a facelift, with the regular tube being decorated in bold colours with the big XTREME logo across the front.
These look like any old regular Pringle crisps, with the distinctive curved shape and they are the usual pale beige colour. They are light and crunchy and have a nice crispy texture that is good by itself or goes well with dips. The label bears the following 'WARNING: XTREME FLAVOURS INSIDE', and this flavour reaches the second highest level of heat, depicted by a large flame symbol on the chart! The flavour is described as "exploding cheese and chilli"!
I wasn't sure what to expect from these Pringles but tried them in the hope that they would at least be a bit of a change from the norm, and a fun snack. Even in the first few moments of putting the crisp into my mouth to eat it, I was hit with the flavour. Not many products that claim to be extreme can truly manage it, but this one fits the bill! I got a warm, spicy feeling that spread over my tongue and mouth. The chilli is strong and noticeable, but the cheese was quite weak in comparison and I think it was overpowered by the spices. The flavour is nice and even though I'm not overly keen on spicy food, I was able to eat these and enjoy them. The flavour builds as you eat more of them and it does get quite spicy after a few of them. It is a bold move by Pringles and they taste unique and interesting. I could only manage to eat a couple at a time because the flavour built up the heat became a bit intense for my weak little taste buds, so I didn't have the usual 'once you've popped you can't stop' feeling. A tube of Extreme flavour Pringles last me a lot longer than the regular flavours, and are kept fresh by the re-sealable tube.
I think these would be great to have as an everyday snack, spicing up your lunch, or sharing with friends at home. If you're the playful type give them to someone unsuspecting without telling them the flavour and watch the shock they get from it, hehe!

Pringles are addictive reformed potato sprayed with a cocktail of flavours and mono-sodium glutamate to make you addictively eat them. I must admit my taste buds work just fine and usually when I open a tube I'm hard pressed to stop snacking on them. But this flavour just didn't do that. The open tube has sat for more than a month and it's still more than half full.
The flavour is strong, a characteristic i usually love. Yet it's not a fresh or deep flavour, just one that sticks in your mouth and tastes faintly stale after only seconds. The chilli flavour is the first to come through and it does indeed explode as the packet promises. It tastes like mass produced, baked potato van chilli, more than chilli peppers. The cheese flavour is more subtle and it's the after taste that reveals it's flavour better. Again it's not a delicate cheese flavour but then one would not expect that!
I'm not sure if the flavour will be popular enough to be on our shelves for long but it's an interesting experience. I wouldn't buy them again and after one or two I'm quite happy to leave the pack. I gave them to a selection of my family to try and most pulled a face and refused a second. It's a shame as we usually are such fans.
I absolutly love Pringles and usually when I go round to my boyfriends house his mum has more often than not bought a tub of Pringles for him to munch through during the week. Not too good I know, but I usually end up eating ost of them anyway.
It wasnt until i went round to his that I had tried this flavour. I saw them firstly in WH Smith at Gatwick airport and thought that they sounded interesting but never got round to buying them. I usually go for either Salt and Vinegar or cheese and onion, so wasnt too sure on these by the sounds of the flavour. However, I have to say that they are actually very nice, they are fairly hot,espicially after a few, but mainly have a strong cheesy flavour which I think goes together very well.
I have had quite a few of his packs now and they seem to vary in flavour quite a lot, where some are full of flavour, and some are very weak. I had a pack the other day which tasted very salty with cheese, as opposed to chilli and cheese, was quite strange!
There are a lot of new flavours in the extreme range, and although I havent got round to trying the others, im sure that either I, or my partners mum will buy some in the near future and I shall try them then!
I dont think whilst shopping you could miss them, they are in a fairly eye catching packet unlike their normal flavours which I think is probably what originally caught my eye. They are usually around £1.50 for a pack but very regulary on offer at two packs for £2 which I dont think is too bad.
There are just over 750 calories and 48g of fat per 150g pack of pringles,which really isnt very healthy at all, but for the odd occasion I think its worth it.
Overall if you get a pack with lots of flavour on, they are really nice, however, if you are unlucky and get one with hardly any coating, you may, like me at times, feel slightly dissapointed.
There is a new range of Pringles that came out about 6 months ago called Pringles Extreme. Although I have found that normal Pringles have a good amoount of flavouring on them, these have a good flavour and can be slightly more spicy and that.
They come in the same 170g tin, the same kind of cardboard tube with the foil covering and the plastic lid. I would say the colourings on here are more bold and eye catching. As the picture shows the colourings are blue and yellow.
The Pringles are stacked on top of each other and just the same as the other Pringles in that way.
So how did these taste? Pretty nice. I thought of Nacho's when I heard of this flavour. Just more in the way when you get the melted Cheese with the Jalapeno Peppers on top of the Nacho's and I would say that sums up the taste of it well. These aren't too spicy, but they do have a bit of a kick to them. They haven't been the spiciest in the Pringles Extreme range and I would certainly buy them again.
I think these are back to the same price of around £1.60 for the 170g tin. we bought them when Asda had them on offer for £1, and there was offers on not that long ago for 74p for a tin.
A nice tasty full of flavour Crisp.
I love Pringles and when I spied these on special offer in my local Tesco I had to give them a try. Normally they retail for around £2 but I managed to pick up a tube for 99p.
The crisps are packaged in the usual Pringles tubes but this one really stands out, with a fluorescent X on a black background. The flavour is described as 'Exploding' cheese and chilli - yikes! I love spicy food so I was looking forward to trying them.
The Pringles look just the same as other Pringles, except that these are somewhat yellow in colour (probably because of the cheese flavouring). As usual there seems to be more flavouring on one side than the other!
When you first taste one of these Pringles you really taste the cheese, and it doesn't seem too spicy. As you eat a few though you can really feel the kick of the chilli and there is a definite spicy aftertaste.
Like all Pringles these are very moreish - 'once you pop you can't stop'! However I don't think these are my favourite flavour of Pringles. I'm not a big fan of cheese crisps anyway (I hate Cheese and Onion crisps) and I found the cheese to be a bit much. I thought the chilli aspect would redeem them and they did to an extent, but not as much as I would hope. I would prefer a flavour that were just chilli - maybe I should get some from the Chinese-inspired range of Pringles! This is just my personal opinion though - if you think you might like them then you should definitely give them a try.
25g (1/6 of a tube) of Pringles gives 129 calories. Ok as an occasional treat I suppose!
Pringles Extreme Cheese and Chilli......
I have had to write a review of these Pringles because they are so delicious that I can't stop eating them. I find them by far the best Pringles that you can buy and what is better they are on offer in most places at the moment!
I was always a Sour Cream and Chive Pringles fan before trying these and I have to say that I don't think I can go back. These Cheese and Chilli are really not for people who do not like a bit of spice as they do have somewhat of a kick to them! The chilli flavour is rather strong and in my opinion does over power the cheeseyness slightly.
I have just bought a couple of tubes from Morrison's at 99p which is better than half price as usually they are just over £2 per tube. There is 150grams of Pringles per tube but this really doesn't seem to last very long because really "When you pop you can't stop". This slogan has never been so true for me until that is before eating this flavour.
The Pringles are a very light crisp shaped perfectly to fit the tongue and are covered in flavour (more so one side than the other). They have a slight dark yellowing colour to them and the aroma is certainly that of a cheese type snack. The flavour as I have previously said is really second to none I n my eyes and I find they go perfect before dinner with my vodka a coke. They are good to share but far better when eaten alone.
I have been saving the Pringles tubes to do something with and have accumulated far more than you would think! So far me, Himself and Jack have used some for a make shift bowling set, used four to go with a shoe box to make the turrets for our castle (looks the business) and of course I have put a lot of arts and crafts things in them so they are used as storage. However I still have plenty left and cannot think of anything else useful - ideas most welcome.
All in all I can say that I am addicted to these innocent looking things. However I should be careful because there is about 800 calories for the whole tube (easily done) and about 11 grams of saturated fat (lower than expected). But I can whole heatedly recommend them and will be stoking my shelves as they are a bargain at 99p (but would not buy them at full price).
A certain 5/5 star product.
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
I do hope this has been of some help/interest to you.
I think everybody loves at least one flavour of Pringles crisps, and up until I tried these, mine were Salt and Vinegar. Now though, these are by far my favourite.
These crisps are part of the newer pringles range of 'Extreme' and when shopping they certainly stand out with a black box and flourescant yellow writing, which is what originally caught my eye. The sound of the flavour-chili and cheese is slightly unusual, however the taste is great and they definatly go well together.
Ive had tubs of pringles in the past where one tub will taste great, then another has hardly any flavour, almost as if they have cut back on the flavour topping, however, with around eight tubs of these the flavour has been spot on every time.
They are not too hot at all,so for those of you who dont like spicy things these should be ok for you, they are very cheesy, like a nacho cheese taste with a slight kick of chilli left in your mouth afterwards. After eating a lot of these(i usually eat half a pack at a time which isnt good!) the chilli does then become quite hot and if you are the sort who doesnt like spicy food then it will probably be too much for you!
They cost the same as normal pringles and there are many others withing this new range which I will be trying in the near future! One slight criticism would be that i much prefer the rice infusion range as they are a lot crispier, if these were made in the rice infusion range then they would be even better!
Either way, I would definatly reccommend you give these a try, for around £1 you cant excatly go wrong!
These caught my eye last week when I was in Asda. Situated on the normal Pringle shelf, next to the large bags of Crisps, these stood out with the packaging, and also the price was quite good as well, at only 80p. I don't know if there is other Pringles Extreme out there, but there was about 6 rows of this flavour, which could mean any other ones had sold out. Anyway I decided to try them and see what they were like.
The normal Pringle tub. It is a long-ish circular shaped tub which is made of quite thick and sturdy cardboard. The Crisps are stacked on top of each other and they are the usual Pringle shape, which is slightly curved. I read on a pack of normal Pringles and they stated that 90 Crisps were in the tub, not sure how accurate that is, as i've never felt the need to count them, but if that's true, then I guess you are getting quite a lot for your money. The Crisps have a foil bit thing up the top of the tub, and I always just rip it back to let me into it. There is a plastic lid as well, so that keeps them fresh.
The pack stands out as the colourings are navy blue and yellow. The yellow part is a large cross and the pack has that kinda bad, dangerous, not the normal spicy look about it. I don't know how to describe what i'm meaning to say, but you know how they always make spicy or hot things look bad with dark colours? Well this is just like that.
Now to the actual Crisps. These have a good flavour to them. There seems to be enough flavouring on them, and they do have a bit kick to them. The best way I can describe the flavour is like Jalepeno's and Cheese. I think the way Nacho's taste, but obviously without the salsa and sour cream, but just when you get the Melted Cheese with the Jalepeno's on top, then this is the same taste.
I liked these, and thought they were tasty, different and I would eat them again. I wouldn't go out my way to get them, but that's not because I don't like them, just that I don't think they were that special. They aren't my favourite flavour of Crisps, but they were good. My husband had a couple and said they tasted weird, as you wouldn't expect that taste from a Crisp, and he wouldn't buy them himself or eat any again, so 2 very different views here.
If you see these in the shop and especially if they are on offer then they are worth a try.
