      Yummy!

      For as long as I can remember I have loved Pringles. It is true for me though that once I pop I can't stop so I do try to avoid buying them however the other day I spotted this flavour in Asda on special offer for a pound and was simply very curious to try them out as I love hot and spicy things and had never seen them before!

      The Packaging:

      Pringles come in a tall cardboard, cylinder tube with a foil peel off lid to the top of them and a see-through plastic cap/lid that pops on and off with ease to keep them fresh (if you don't eat them all at once that is lol). On the front of the tube there is a cartoon mans face and we are told that they are Pringles Hot & Spicy and there is a picture of a crisp with chillis and flames on there and we are told that there are 239 Kcal per 25g serving and that the weight of this tube is 165g. On the back of the tube other information listed includes ingredients being listed, a full nutritional chart is shown and contact details for Procter & Gamble are also stated (the manufacturer of the product). Its a nice resealable tube and robust, informative enough (lots of information is listed on the tube in foreign languages too by the way) and I like the smart black colour of this tube too!

      The Crisps:

      In an average tube of pringles we are told we get an average of 100 crisps and my experience with a tube of these tells me that is a correct assumption! Large, slightly curved in the middle they always in shape remind me of a ducks beak they look like quality crisps and something to get stuck into!

      Plain light yellowy colour with dark red powder ingrained and sprinkled on every crisp they have a lovely somewhat sort of meaty, spicy aroma to them. Slightly messy to eat as the powder does come off on the fingers these simply taste delicious but get hotter the more you eat of them...tingling the taste buds slightly as you go so have a drink on standby if your a bit wussy like me!

      Deeply crunchy and robust though not too thick these taste to me slightly creamy with a hint of onion and garlic flavoring to them. I can detect the paprika in appearance on the crisps and can really taste a rather hot sweet chilli flavour! Like I stated previously the more you eat of these the hotter they get!

      These are not one bit greasy though not dried up things either, great and strong enough to dip and simply taste wonderful and they really do ooze quality and flavour big time and I love them...even if my hips don't!

      At only 129kcal but 8.1g in fat per 125g I can always make room in my diet for these from now on...love em!

      Available in all good supermarkets etc.

        .

        I haven't seen these in many shops recently and I don't think they were ever that well stocked in places. I tried them about 6 months ago and thought that they were pretty forgettable. I think these came out just before the Pringles Xtreme range came out, and wonder if that range was launched on the back of this flavour. It is this kind of flavouring that I would have expected in the Xtreme range.

        These are in the normal 170g tubes. Thick cardboard tube with a foil lid and plastic lid as well. The tube looks alright. You get the impression that these are quite spicy due to the splashes of red colouring on the tube and the Peppers. I like Hot food, but sometimes find Hot Crisps a bit odd to eat.

        When these were opened I could smell sort of a Paprika scent. It smelt nice enough, but not as stong a spicy taste that I was expecting. Since these were down as Hot and Spicy, then it was like you were expecting double the hotness.

        When I ate a couple of these I could taste a heat in these. They weren't too hot and easily enough to eat quite a few of these without your mouth burning. IT was a nice enough flavour, but not a kind of Pringles that I would buy all that often. They just tasted that bit odd, and not the nice taste that you get from other Crisps.

        Perhaps worth a try if you like hot Crisps, but just not my ideal taste.

        Not The Best Pringles Available!

        We're just finishing all our Xmas junk food off and last night I found a tube of these Hot And Spicy Pringles in the cupboard so opened them because I just fancied something a bit spicy.

        They look like any other Pringles, the tube is a bit more funky with it's darker colours and pictures of chillis but that's about it as far as the appearance goes. You get 90 Pringles in a tube and since they changed the tube slightly I think the Pringles stay in shape a lot better and you don't get them all breaking up like they used to.

        I'm disappointed with this Hot And Spicy flavour and that's simply because there's nothing hot OR spicy about them!!! You know the Flamin' Hot Monster Munch and the fact that they're not hot at all? Well these are exactly the same and they taste a bit of chillis but deffo chillis with every little bit of heat removed!

        They've got a nice flavour but it's mainly of paprika with a bit of garlic flavour and the weird chilli taste that isn't hot! lol They're deffo not spicy at all and to give you an idea of how unspicy they are let me tell you that Sensations Sweet Chilli crisps are loads hotter than these disappointing Pringles.

        The texure of them is the same as any Pringles, they're light and not madly greasy. They are made of reformed potato instead of actual slices and that's how Pringles get them to have that curved shape and all the crisps are exactly the same shape and size.

        While I was eating these last night my mum mentioned that they'd be nice with a garlic mayo dip, we didn't have any in but I reckon she's right because the garlic would bring out the taste of the spices a bit..... and also might actually add a bit of interest to these boring crisps.

        Not really recommended because they're deffo not spicy, but they taste ok I suppose.

        Pringles Hot And Spicy

        Morrisons had an offer on Pringles before Christmas so I stocked up with a few tubes....

        Packaging.

        Pringles stand out a bit more than most of the other crisps on the market as they are packaged in a tube rather than the bags or packets that the majority of other crisps are in. This particular tube is predominantly dark brown in colour with a picture of a pringle surrounded by fire and some chillies along with the Pringles logo and the name of the flavour. The tube contains 165g of crisps. The tube has a plastic lid on the top with a paper covering underneath. The back of the tube tells us that the crisps are packed in a protective atmosphere.
        The back of the tube contains the ingredients and nutritional information in various languages, contact numbers for various countries and the website address:-

        www.pringles.com


        Nutritional Information per 25g serving {per 100g in brackets}

        Energy kJ: 539kJ {2158kJ}
        kcal: 129kcal {517kcal}
        Protein: 1.1g {4.3g}
        Carbohydrate: 13g {52g}
        of which sugars: 0.55g {2.2g}

        Fibre: 0.68g {2.7g}
        Sodium: 0.18g {0.72g}

        This product is suitable for vegetarians.



        Ingredients:

        Dehydrated Potatoes, Vegetable Oil, Rice Flour, Wheat Starch (gluten free), Hot & Spicy Flavour (Flavour Enhancer: Monosodium Glutamate, Disodium Rosinate and Disodium Guanylate, Whey Powder, Sugar, Lactose from milk, Buttermilk Powder, Yogurt Powder, Sour Cream Powder, Onion Powder, Paprika Powder, Yeast Powder, Tomato Powder, Flavourings, Colour: Paprika Extract, Jalapeno Extract, Food Acid, Lactic Acid, Chilli Powder, Garlic Powder, Spices, Milk Proteins), Maltodrextrin, Emulsifier: E471, Salt



        Taste & Opinion:

        On opening the tube there's a strong aroma which hits your nose but it doesn't particularly remind you of any other sort of smell. The smell is a slightly sweet tinge to it and perhaps smells a little like some sort of roasted meat but it's not distinctive enough to narrow down any further.

        The crisps themselves are exactly the same in texture and consistency as the rest of the Pringles range. They're thin, crunchy and you always find a load of bits at the bottom of the tube that have broken off either during the production process or when the tube has been in transit. Presumably this is because the crisps themselves are more brittle than most of the others on the market rather than the fact that they come in a tube.
        Like the rest of the range some of the flavouring will rub off onto your hands whilst eating so it's best to have something handy to wash with / wipe your hands on after eating.

        Tastewise, they are just ok. There's obviously a number of ingredients listed as making up the Hot & Spicy flavour but actually they're not particularly hot or particularly spicy. None of the ingredients listed is dominant so you wouldn't taste these and think "these are really overpowering on the paprika powder front" or "they've used far too much chilli powder in these".

        In fact the only ingredients I can pick out are the paprika powder and a chilli type taste which may be down to the chilli powder used or perhaps from the jalapeno extract. As with the Pringles Extreme I reviewed, you're not going to eat these and think that they're very hot or very spicy because they're not. In fact the Monster Munch Flamin' Hot flavour is more hot / spicy than these are.

        The sweet edge that these have to them is rather nice but you're not going to think that the flavour overall is the best thing you've ever tasted in the crisp line. As I said they're ok and pleasant enough but aren't anything to get over excited about. On the fat content front these contain less fat than regular Walkers, Nik Naks and Frisps but more than other brands such as McCoys and Monster Munch. They're perhaps worth trying but I wouldn't think that anyone would say that these are the best crisps they've ever tried.

          Disadvantages

          The best flavour to date!

          Along the lines of the usual Pringles offering of 170 Gram cylindrical tubes of potato crisps but now they have a kick! I love the Pringles tube design and have done for years, great for when you travel or don't want to eat them all.

          These new hot & Spicy flavour are right up my street, now I have to admit I am quite of fan of all the Pringles range but this new offering is definately the best to date in my opinion.

          The flavour is a subtle rather than a blow your head of spiciness, this is due to the Paprika powder, onion powder and the jalepeno extract. I am a regular eater of chillies and other spices so I suppose I could be immune to the heat a little but I don't think anyone would find the heat too overpowering.

          As with all the previous varieties once you pop you won't stop, so beware that this product could certainly assist in pilling on the pounds with 530 Kcal per 100 gram serving.

            One of the worst flavours in one of the best potato snacks

            Pringles hot and spicy is another flavour in the extremely 'moreish' Pringles range of potato snacks.

            Pringles Hot and spicy comes in a dark green coloured cylindrical tubes. This time around, there is quite a lot of spice (namely in the form of red chilli powder) added to the trademark 'once you pop you can't stop' formula employed by Pringles.

            Pringles hot and spicy are just as crisp out of the box as any of the other flavours in Pringles. You get the delicious taste of that Pringles flavour but this time supplemented by a distinctive spicy flavour. This spicy flavour may be too much for some and, while used to spicy flavours, find it to be slightly dull and plain.

            The hot and spicy version of Pringles like all other versions of the snacks are quite high when it comes to calories and contains some 273 calories in a 50g serving. There is also a lot of fat (18.5g).

            However calorific Pringles may be, but they remain as one of the best and most addictive potato snacks ever conceived but I personally feel that the hot and spicy flavour is not Pringles at their best and you'd be better off with something like Sour Cream and Onion.
