      Crunchy Crisps!

      Pringles come in a long cardboard tube which is lined with foil on the inside. The Pringles are stacked in a big pile. The only problem I have with this packaging- is that whilst it's ok when you first open the tube, when you get to the bottom, you have to stick your whole arm in which is annoying if you like to eat them straight out of the pot. I guess you could 'pour them out' into a bowl or something though. The tube also has a plastic lid so that they keep fresh...that's if you don't eat them all in one go.

      The Pringles are a round-ish / oval-y shape with a dip in the middle - this is good as they fit in your mouth- they are quite big though to fit fully. Whilst they are smooth, I do find that once I have crunched them up they can be quite 'painful' to eat as they are quite hard and sharp...oh just me then! hehe

      They are a golden colour. The crisps themselves are quite light and incredibly more-ish. Obviously, they are ready salted, and so they are quite salty - I find that I get very thirsty after these.

      All in all, would I recommend these? Yes I would. I think that they are great when you fancy a treat and also they are great for parties especially as they have that extra 'luxury' taste and feel than normal crisps.

      Pringles are available in small and large sizes. They are available to buy in most supermarkets and convenience stores.

      Thanks for reading!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Once you pop...they got that right

      Pringles, sooo yummy but so evil.

      Everyone loves Pringles, they are a unique shape, just the right size to insert the whole thing in your mouth in one go! Yes I do this a lot, well when I eat them anyway!

      They are curved in shape and in a tube of multi colours depending on your choice of flavour. I love the original ones, I wouldn't say they are my favourite, I would have to plump for BBQ to win that title, but you cant beat the original flavour. They are slightly salted without being too much, bear in mind once you pop you cant stop, you don't want to eat too many if they are really salty.

      I do find with other flavours, that when you work your way through the tube, some of the Pringles have way too much flavouring on. Some are marbled in coulour and you can almost see which ones will burst with way too much flavour. I don't mind the odd one of these crisps, but when you are nearing the end of the tube, this is not a nice thing to come across.

      They are horrendously moreish which never looks good for the amount of additives etc they fill them full of to make you keep eating. The offers shops do, do not help the lack of willpower either, Sainsburys always do buy 3 for the price of 1! How is that going to stop me from buying them all? I wont however buy them when they are £2 a pot, they may be nice but my will power will kick in sometimes.

      The tube can be used for so many things afterwards, as a drum, fill it with beads/stones you have a shaker, cut a hole in the top you have a money box.....now the £2 a pot doesn't seem so expensive.

      lovely crisps

      I used to love these and could easily eat a whole tube in one sitting, not the best as they are so high in fat but sooo tastey!
      Then one day at a bbq a friend decided to do a party trick and too a lighter to a pringle. It burns light a fire lighter showing how much fat is contained in one crisp.
      This little party trick put me off pringle for a while. However, this didnt last long and I soon found myself munching through another box!!

      The original flavour is the best, the other flavour are a bit strong and not really tasting like the flavour they should!!!!

      it is nice the share these and you can always make funny faces with them like the advert, a duck or something!
      The tubes also double up as a drum to entertain you after you have finished munching the whole tube!

      These are quite expensive, £2 for a tube but they are on offer a lot of the time and worth stocking up on them then. £2 for a tube of crisps is very expensive!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Once you pop you certainly can't stop!

        I love pringles and always have! The come in all differnet flavours which I love to try! The original flavour are easy to spot in the supermarket, they are in a tall red tube and have a little white mans face with a moustache.

        They are usually on special offer in supermarket, I recently brought some for 19p in Waitrose BARGIN! Today I brought 2 new flavours to try- Mexican Fajita and spaghetti bolognese, other new flavours included macaroni cheese and steak and onion. I have also tried Pizza flavour which is one of my favourites!

        Prices of pringles are usually £1.50-1.99 and can even go up to £2.04 per tube which I think is expensive so I only tend to buy them on special offer.

        The crisps have like a scoopy design and are nice and crunchy that fit perfectly on the tongue. The tube they are in protects them from breaking. The original flavour is not an over powering flavour, just the right amount and perfect for eating either straight out the tube or eating with dips.

        The pringles are quite high in fat, calories and salt and it's easy to get carried away and eat a whole tube.
        Each tube is 165g and contains (per 100g):

        526kcal
        34g fat
        1.3g salt

        The slogan for these crisps is "once you pop you can't stop" which is absolutely true as you can't just eat one, which is not thes best news for people watching their weight. Pringles are great for parties or a DVD night in with friends. I like to try a variety of flavours and they have other kinds such as rice infusions, Multi grain or Extremes and many other flavours!

        Yum!

        Don't get me wrong. I love pringles. But have you ever wondered why once you've eaten one, you have to eat them all? Well it's because they're packed full of MSG, which is addictive and affects the same receptors in the brain as valium (though not quite to the same extent).

        They are yummy and I do love a good pringle but the problem is once I've eaten one I just can't stop - so they definitely aren't something I would buy everyday otherwise I'd be the size of a house!

        Now talking about the actual pringles and in particular this flavour. The pringles often have an uneven distribution of flavouring but then again I actually like this. There's nothing like that thrill when you get an over flavoured pringle! Personally my favourite flavour is texas bbq sauce but original comes in at a close second. While most ready salted crisps have a somewhat bitter and overpowering flavour these are much softer on your tastebuds and are the only ready salted crisps I actually like.

        They're also an excellent party food!

        One of my favourite types of crisps

        I think Pringles are great and even though I am trying to reduce the amount of junk food I consume which I am sure crisps qualify as, I do occasionally eat a small tube of these as they are one of my favourites. Although there are a variety of flavours I do particularly enjoy the original flavour which is moderately salted. If you are familiar with this brand you will know that unlike many crisps that are in packets, Pringles are presented to the customer in tubes of differing sizes. These tubes due to their shape and size remind me of the ones you find tennis balls or shuttlecocks stored in. Depending on flavour is what the colour of this packaging will be and you find the original type in red.

        I managed to purchase a 40g tube of these for 49 pence recently which I thought was a tremendous bargain and currently on the Tesco website you can buy a 190g size tube for £1.18 which is half the regular cost of £2.36.

        The Pringles themselves are extremely tasty and it can truly be said that this brand of potato chip definitely hold their flavour which when eaten are amazing. Each crisp is thin and curved so that they stack one on top of each other perfectly in the tube. To bite they are crunchy and these are extremely addictive really living up to the slogan "once you pop, you can't stop". At some point you will probably have to though as 100g of these contains 34g of fat and 526 calories but 100g is a lot of crisps. The 40g tubes I bought recently were just about enough to accompany and compliment my lunchtime sandwich.

        These really are right up there as my favourite crisps with Snaps and McCoys and the way they are packaged in the tubes always makes them great to put on a table at parties or to have in the middle of the floor when you have friends over to watch a video, sorry DVD, I thought I was back in the Nineties for a minute there.

          A great potato snack; ideal for party's and go great with dips!

          I can't think of anyone who doesn't like Pringles.

          When my children first became aware of them they wanted them all of the time. There are really two reasons why I sometimes buy Pringles. One is for their great choice of flavours and another is that I like them with dips!

          Today for example, I fancied some dips. I'm going to eat them later tonight when watching TV. What I usually like to have with my dips are carrot sticks, Cucumber, Breadsticks or ready salted crisps or original Pringles. I don't have other flavours of Pringles with my dips as I think it sort of ruins the flavours of both the Dips and the Pringles, they don't sort of go well together. However, the original Pringles are great for dips.

          All of the Pringles varieties are very light; hence they are easy to eat and also easy to eat loads!!
          Pringles original are golden in colour; they taste a little salty but I like is that they are not too salty for a sort of crisp . Some ready salted normal crisps can be a little too salty; even though I like salt a lot! Sometimes if there is too much salt then I don't enjoy the product (apart from that too much salt is bad for you of course!)

          I like the Pringles containers. They come in a long cardboard tube, which I think is easy to store at home in my cupboard. I also like the fact that if you only want a few (admittedly that is rare with me!) that you can just pop the lid back on and they stay fresh; I always place the paper cover first back on followed by the plastic lid. The container for original Pringles is Red. One strange thing about these Pringles is that I have just realised that I do not like the cartoon sort of character they have on the tube. It is like a picture of a person with a curly brown moustache and curly brown hair and a small red bow tie!! This certainly doesn't affect my buying Pringles though. Perhaps that goes to show that packaging doesn't always count! However I do like the way there is a ray of sunshine shining down onto a pringle which is in a sort of twisted position on the Pringles tube.

          Ingredients
          **************

          Dehydrated potatoes
          Vegetable Oil
          Rice flour
          Wheat Starch
          Maltodextrin Emulsifier E471
          Salt

          *Pringles Original are suitable for Vegetarians*

          *There are 131 kcals per 25g of the product*

          Other flavours
          **************

          Pringles are available in a range of other flavours including BBQ, Sour cream & Onion, Salt & Vinegar, Cheese & Onion, Prawn Cocktail, and there are 2 new flavours; Xtreme Cheese & chilli and Xtreme Smokin ribs.

          Pringles are available in a variety of sizes, from small snack pots, to 150g and 160g pots and the ones I currently have which are described as 'Party size'; which have 190g in them. At the moment there is a great offer on at Sainsbury's and you can buy 3 tubes/pots for only £2.29 FOR ALL THREE!! (that's for the Party size!) What a great price. The flavours available that I noticed were this Original, BBQ and Sour Cream & Onion. I recommend you all go out and grab yourself a bargain now before the offer ends.

          Pringles are a pleasant, light tasting potato snack that can be enjoyed by all the family. I am sure there will a flavour available to suit all tastes. Usually I do find them a little expensive, but an offer like the current one is not to be missed! They fully deserve a 5 star rating from me. I can't wait to try out the newer flavours!

            Great buy and quite often on offer

            Hubby bought me some Pringle's for Valentines day and I really enjoyed them.

            I know you are all probably aware of them, but they come in a variety of flavours but my favourite is Original. They are packaged in a red tube containing 165g of crisps towered one on top of the other which utilises the tube so well, you get a full pack unlike crisps where the pack is only half full.

            They are slightly salted and very crunchy so go very well with a nice bar of chocolate, in my opinion. I like to eat them whole one at a time, lovely, however turn one upside down and you have a duck bill.... do you remember the advert lol. They are good for sharing as there are quite a few in the tube, a great product to buy whilst on offer, we got them for 99p and the best before dat is March 2012 so you could stock up for Christmas.

            Overall a good buy when on offer stock right up.

            Disadvantages

            nice salty snack

            Pringles are not crisps, they won a high court ruling back in 2008 which ruled due to their unatural shape, packaging and the fact they contain less than 50% potato they were not classed as crisps so they were exempt from VAT. Good news for the consumer.
            But oh no the revenue appealed because they are not getting enough money off people and in 2009 the court of appeal ruled in favour of the revenue. They decided at 42% potato they contained enough to be classed as being made from potato so crisps they are.

            To me they are different from crisp, because crisp are mis-shaped they are not all the same shape like pringles which are oval shaped and curl up at the 2 longest sides. Crisp also have a louder crunch when bitten in to and the original judge was right about the packaging because crisp come in a packet not a tube like pringles.

            Pringles were invented in 1968.
            Years ago I only remember seeing the original flavour but now they have a whole range of flavours. I used to be quite addicted to the original flavour but after not having them for a while found them quite bland. But every now and again I will pick a tube up and bland or not they are addictive.
            As I mentioned earlier they don't seem to be as crunchy as real crisp but when you bite into them there is a definate crunch and they don't seem to be as greasy as normal crisps. They are salty maybe a bit more than crisp as I can taste the salt and not just know it's there. They also seem to break more easily when I break a bit off rather than crisp seem to create more crumbs if I break them.

            Original pringles are made from dehydrated potatoes, vegetable oil, rice flour, wheat starch, mattodex, emulsifyer E471 and salt.
            They come in a red tube with a foil covering the opening and then a plastic lid over that holding 165g. 100f contains 526 calories and sodium 0.53g so quite a bit of salt.
            The tubes used to be bigger they now contain 90 pringles.

            These also make a nice change to use with dips.

              Yummy!

              Original Pringles have always been my favourite flavour. Usually I dont like original flavour crisps as I find them too plain and boring but I really like these so I usually buy these when I do buy Pringles. Another advantage to buying original ones is that my partner doesnt like them!

              Currently Tescos are selling Pringles for 99p which is half of their usual price so now is a great time to stock up for Christmas - as long as you can keep yourself eating them until then!

              Pringles come in a big tube like shown above, at the moment they have some Christmas decoration on them. I like the design of the tube and find that it keeps the crisps really fresh, I bought some pringles a few weeks back and it took me about 10 days to eat the lot but by the time I had finished they were still crunchy and fresh.

              So when you open up the tube the Pringles are all neatly piled up, the packet tells me there are 90 crisps in there so plenty to keep you going! Each crisp is about 3 inches long and 2 inches wide, they are a curved shape which allows them to stack more easily and they also sit on your tongue well.

              So what do they taste like? They taste quite salty. They certainly have a kick to them and are not 'plain' like a lot of people assume. They are crunchy and crispy and extremely moreish - I can happily eat a quarter of the tube at once!

              The tube suggests there are over 6 servings. There are 165g in total and a suggested serving is 25g. Each serving contains 131 calories, 0.36g sugar, 8.4g fat, 1.8g saturates and 0.13g sodium. Now the fat here is quite high, especially because you are never quite sure how many you are eating but Pringles are a treat and after all...it is nearly Christmas!

              This flavour of Pringles is my favourite and I will continue to buy them, they have a lovely flavour and are a nice alternative to traditional crisps.

                A yummy crisp that's very addictive!

                Pringles, they just make me think of Christmas and in that case, Christmas has come early this year as I'm already munching away! I was in Tesco yesterday and saw that they had on offer 3 tubes of pringles for the price of one, never a person to say no to a good and tasty offer I popped 3 tubes in my basket. £1.99 for 3 tubes, not bad!

                Everyone knows about Pringles and if you haven't - just where have you been? You're missing out of a very crunchy, moreish and addictive snack that comes in a tube! Just how many crisps come in a tube eh? Pringles Original are just that, they are Pringles' original flavour and perhaps one of my favourites.

                Pringles are wafer thin crisps in an interesting shape, I can only descripe the shape as being sort of "duck beak" shape if you get my drift. The crisps are crunchy and highly addictive - you have been warned! The original flavour is slightly salted, simple but effective if you ask me. The packaging of Pringles Original hasn't changed, they're still in the red tube with the Pringle man and his huge moustache on the front.

                Unfortunately these snacks aren't the healthiest in the world with a 25 gram serving containing 131 calories and 8.4 grams of fat! And it's always more tempting to polish off the tube! Eeek! Thank goodness I only really eat them at xmas! Hang on, are Pringles even available all year round? Hmmm...I will have to get back to you all on that one.

                The ingredients of Pringles Original are pretty much what you would expect:

                * Dehydrated Potatoes
                * Vegetable Oil
                * Corn Flour
                * Wheat Starch (Gluten Free*)
                * Maltodextrin
                * Emulsifier: E471
                * Salt
                * Rice Flour
                * Dextrose
                * < 0.3 Protein (Codex Alimentarius).

                Here's the nutritional value for you all:

                Nutrient per 100g per 25g

                Salt N/A N/A

                If you've never tried them before then go for it! If Original isn't your cup of tea, there's tons of other scrummy flavours such as sour cream & onion and bbq beef flavour. Yum! I'd advise you to take Tesco up on their offer as it really is a good deal. Pringles are great for parties or just as a snack.

                  A lovely crisp that is very more-ish

                  Pringles are the most addictive crisps ever! After coining the phrase "once you pop, you can't stop", we all agreed and I can safely say a tube of Pringles does not last long around my house. They are currently on special offer for half price at Tesco's, and cost me 99p for a 165g tube.

                  They packaging is easily recognisable as it is very different to the normal foil packages that crisps usually come in - the tall cylindrical tube definitely stands out on the shelf. The top of the tube is covered with a tight seal, and it also has a removable plastic lid. This is great for keeping the crisps fresh, and you can re-seal the packet afterwards if you are good enough to have not devoured the entire lot in one sitting. It can be a little difficult to retrieve crisps from down at the bottom of the tube unless you have small and nimble fingers. But, you can easily turn the tube up and tip the crisps out onto your hand instead, just watch out for crumbs.

                  These look like any old regular crisps, with the distinctive curved Pringle 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. This original flavour is quite plain apart from the strong taste of salt. These are really good for those who prefer savoury snacks over sweet things, and the plain flavour goes down well with everybody.

                  Pringles are a yummy snack and can be used on all sorts of different occasions. They're lovely to pack up for lunches or picnics, as a snack, with dips or sauces, crumbled over the top of a tuna bake, and they are absolutely essential when having a movie night, barbeque or buffet type gathering. A versatile potato snack that can do no wrong. You just need to find the willpower to stop eating them all in one go!

                    Disadvantages

                    A satisfying treat that should be had in moderation

                    Pringles, who doesn't love them? Crispy, thin sheets of roasted potatoes covered with salt makes a perfectly addictive (and guilty) snack! If you are not really fond of sweet foods (or just want to take a break from them for a while), Pringles really is the best choice. Unlike some of the other potato chip brands I've consumed, these particular potato chips are thin, though not TOO thin (which makes for an unsatisfying bite as all you could taste is salt and oil), so that there is a perfect combination between potato and salt.

                    One inevitable thing I have to dislike about Pringles is that they leave your hand oily after you eat them. This, in my opinion, makes it really inconvenient when you are, say, watching a DVD on your laptop, because if you are a clean freak like I am, you wouldn't want to touch your beloved machine with those oily fingers! Another (very obvious) disadvantage to eating Pringles is that they are VERY fatty and full of salt. You wouldn't want to snack on these everyday! I personally have about two tubes a month (it takes a lot of willpower I tell you!). The trick is not to avoid them altogether, but to have them moderately :)

                    great for sharing, delicious

                    Pringles are a brilliantly good quality crisp in any flavour. If you are a fan of the flavour, you will love the Pringle version. The plain ones, however, are extra especially special because there is no other plain crisp that tastes like it. Crisps that are simply salted will almost always differ according to the quality of what they are made from. These are perfectly made.

                    When I was a child Pringles were looked upon by my family as a bit posh and we would look forward to having them at our birthday tea. Now, we indulge rather more regularly, but there is still something about them that lends itself to special occasions or for when you are going to have people round and want something for sharing. In fact, I can only really get them to share, because otherwise I would scoff the lot myself.

                    Think I'll only buy them when they are on special offer

                    As I sit here typing this review, I am currently munching my way through a tube of original pringles so please feel free to join me on this journey...

                    I only purchased them because they were on offer in Morrisons... 2 tubes for £3.00... I believe they are usually around £2 for one tube though so its a good offer to be had...

                    The tube has a plastic see through lid which pops off to reveal a foil like lid which you have to peel back.... This peels back quite easily so no struggling at this point which is handy as my mouth is starting to water..

                    Ah.... they are all stacked on top of one another...ok this is fine as I can tip the tube up to get some out... ooops.... tipped out a few too many... never mind no point putting them back now as I've touched them...

                    To look at they remind me of a contorted disco crisp (for those of you who remember disco crisps!) its oval but its like a wave.... very odd shape for a crisp... and I've now discovered that if you put two back to back they look like a ducks beak! I'll save that one for my new party trick..... however one of them doesn't all fit in my mouth so I take a bite... aaaaand its just crumbled all over the place... great! hmmm so to be able to eat these you need to eat them whole...

                    The taste of the crisp is definitely salted and they don't taste like a standard walkers crisp as they are made up differently... can't quite explain it really.... but its a nice flavour...

                    So I go in for another, this time it almost fits into my mouth in one and success! no crumbling...

                    I'm now on my sixth one... and the advert is right... once you pop you just can't stop! However I'm going to have to stop soon as the salt is making my lips go a bit funny!
