Paprika Crisps are a flavour that I know I like, but when it comes to Pringles for some reason I tend to steer clear of them. not really sure why, but for some reason I think that amount of Crisps with this flavouring would be a bit sickly.
We bought a few tubes of Pringles when they were on offer for 74p in Asda the other month. Since Pringles can cost around the £2 mark, and although you do get a lot of Crisps in the tube, £2 still seems a lot to spend on some Crisps. Since the best before date is always god on Pringles then we stock up when on a good offer. So we decided to get a tube of this flavour.
This is in the normal Prigles tube. It is a long, quite thin rectangular cardboard tube. This has a foil covering on the top and a plastic lid which you pop on to keep the Crisps Crispy. The colouring is a light orange colour and it has the Pringles logo on it and a paprika flavouring colouring on it too.
When you open these Crisps you get a nice whiff of the scent. You can see that the Crisps have a orange colouring on them and to too at and smell these they seem full of flavour. They are tasty and nice too. You do get a lot of flavour from these as well, and it was a nice smokey, slightly spicy peppered tang.
I will be buying more of this flavour as they are so nice and probably nicer than I expected.
I'm sure most of us have had the pleasure of tucking into a tub or two of Pringles finest in our time. I've had a few varieties including the original flavour, sour cream and chives and even zingy lime I believe. So I wasn't surprised to see a new edition to their range in the guise of Parika.
As ever I find these things dreadfully addictive. The slogan of you can't stop popping is very true. Blink and a big couple of handfuls have gone and blink again and you witness a vanishing tube of potato snacks that are doing nothing positive for your waistline.
The flavour of the paprika variety retains the original taste with a decent touch of the peppery spice. I do not find these excessively hot and quite enjoyed eating...nay...devouring said crisps.
They come in an orange cylinder rather than the conventional red one and apparently the whole weight comes to 155g. Whilst we're on the issue of numbers crunching (or should that be spud crunching) I'll divulge the stats on the side of the box based on a 25g serving. Energy 552 KJ (I wonder if that energy relates to how many times you'll open and shut your mouth whilst eating this potato drug!), protein 12g (I don't think this is quite the way to build up those muscles), Carbohydrates 12g (no good for the Atkins diet then), Fat 8.6g (it should just say eating these will certainly increase your fat content!), Fibre 0.88g (no chance of these turning into a breakfast cereal then) and sodium 0.17g (this surprises me as I was sure this would be much higher. One thing I couldn't see was how many calories. Either my myopia is getting worse or Pringles would like to keep that fact to themselves...can't think why.
There's really not much more to add. I'm sure some people could close their eyes whilst eating said munchie and imagine themselves somewhere exotic but not I. No doubt you could find a suitable dip to plunge them into but I'm one for just eating them raw :)
All in all a nice addition to the range but those looking after their waistlines should probably steer clear.
Right, time for a daft ode :
For those who wish to make their tongue tingle,
Then do indulge in Paprika Pringles.
A peppery taste to relish and admire,
Although not quite setting the mouth on fire.
Addictive and unhealthy these surely are,
After eating these please walk, don't use the car.
Lest your waist get larger and larger,
Especially if you follow with a glass of lager.
So to end these are rather jolly nice,
But not as healthy as plain old rice.
And on that note I bid you a peppery adieu :)
Well what can you say about Pringles, that hasn't been said before. They are definately the most addictive crisps I have ever came across. I personally find them absolutely lethal, once they are open I cannot stop eating them! They are soooo tasty.
I have a few favourite flavours and one of them is Paprika. I have never been a fan of spicy flavours so the lightly spiced coating on paprika Pringles is just perfect for me. It is just enough to make my tongue tingle but not so much that I'm reaching for a drink every 2 seconds.
I think the idea of putting Pringles in a tube, was a great one. They are well protected and are hardly ever broken. They also taste very fresh and because of the tight fitting lid, they remain fresh throughout the time it takes to eat them, which in our house is about half an hour!
As with most snacks, Pringles are pretty high in calories, 129 for just 25 grams, which is just never enough for me. I just don't want to think about how many calories I consume when eating these.
They are also expensive at £1.99 in Tesco for a 165g tube, which holds 90 Pringles altogether. Thankfully they are on special offer quite alot. At the moment they are 99p in Tesco, so I have stocked up.
I think Pringles are a great snack, but they really are hard to put down. If you are having to watch your calorie intake, it's maybe best that you don't pick them up at all.
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. The spice in these crisps works really well with a sour cream dip or something a bit milder as well and this is what we had them with.
These Pringles Paprika come packaged in the standard Pringles tube which is orange/brown 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 are yummy and have lots of flavour to them which comes from the Paprika. 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 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. The spice can be a little much for me after a nice handful of them but then that just encourages me to actually save some!
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 my other halfs so I am sure I will continue to buy and eat these, regardless of nutritional content.
Ingredients: Dehydrated Potatoes, Vegetable Oil, Rice Flour, Wheat Starch (Gluten Free*), Paprika Flavour (Bread Crumbs, Wheat Flour, Yeast Powder, Dextrose, Sugar, Flavour Enhancers: Monosodium Glutamate, Disodium Guanylate and Disodium Inosinate, Paprika Powder, Onion Powder, Flavouring, Garlic Powder, Colour: Paprika Extract, Citric Acid), Maltodextrin, Emulsifier: E471, Salt, < 0.3% protein (Codex Alimentarius).
There is 515 calories and 32g of fat per 100g which is probably the amount that I end up eating from one of the large 165g tubes.
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.
I am going to rate this product 5/5 as I found them to be lovely and savoury. I will be buying these again and the best supermarket locally to purchase them from is Asda as they have whole tubes for under £1.00 which is an absolute bargain.
Some crisps are for grabbing when you want a quick snack or adding to a packed lunch. Some however, are - for me at least - for proper wholesale snackfests. Pringles definitely fall into the latter category I think. For hubby and I this is when we sit down to watch a Grand Prix.
This week's GP was watched while munching on Paprika flavoured Pringles - Our joint favourite flavour. Because these come in a tube rather than a bag like most crisp like snacks, they do stay more complete. This is of course a general rule - I have to note here that gently turning the tube upside down in store before placing it in the basket will alert you to the rainstick like sound of a tube that's been treated ill and contains impaired Pringles! Pringles most recent claim is that each tube contains around 90 pringles - I have to say I've never counted them and I don't intend to, a full tube is enough for me to be happy I'm getting the right number lol.
Price can vary from place to place, I tend to buy when they're on special offer in the supermarket at 2 packs for £2, or 3 packs for £3 and then put spare tubes away in the cupboard. Because the tubes are foil sealed inside you can keep them unopened for quite a long time. I have seen them at much higher prices of closer to £2 per tube, but this has been primarily in places like garages which tend to be more expensive across the board, and although I really like them, at that sort of price I do balk I'm afraid.
Of all the flavours that Pringles do in this range, Paprika is in my humble opinion the one that's most original. I don't know any other brand of snack that has paprika as a flavour, where as there are many that have ready salted or cheesy variations or salt and vinegar. Paprika (for those who don't know) is a spice - it comes in two sorts, hot paprika and sweet paprika, both are great in cooking but for different reasons. The hot one is great for adding heat to a dish, but doesn't add a huge amount of flavour, while the sweet version is spicy, but doesn't give much heat to what it's added to, and it's this sweet paprika that's used on the Pringles. To describe the taste itself is harder, but if you think of the sweet element in sweet and sour, along with a slightly salty, slightly smoky taste you wouldn't be far off the mark..
The Pringle is a potato based snack, but unlike regular crisps it's not just a slice of thin potato. It's been mushed and reformed together with other bits and bobs to preserve it, so that you get a uniformly shaped 'crisp' which is what allows them to stack them so neatly in tubes. They're sort of an oval that's curled up at the sides making it kind of saddle shaped. I describe the shape her because when you eat them most people tend to put them in their mouth sort of to fit their tongue, with the sides curled downwards. I've found that if you turn them over and put them in upside down as it were, you actually get more flavour from them because it seems that then it's the side that's most coated in flavour that hits your tongue first. Regardless of which flavour Pringles you pick, the one thing you do always get is a good crunch, and a lot of flavour which never seems to disappoint me the way some brands can. I hate it when you get one crisp that's got masses of flavour and most that just taste blandly of potato you know. Pringles are much more evenly coated it seems so you don't get this difference between crisps.
Overall, although they seem quite expensive at first glance, when you are comparing them to 'ordinary' crisps they're not as expensive as you might think. The stacking effect within the tube means that a lot more can be fitted in, and weight for weight they are actually pretty comparable with snacks such as walkers max or baked, and fall in between in terms of healthiness. Flavour wise, for me at least, even though I like both other types mentioned, these just beat them hands down.
I really like Pringles Crisps, but Paprika isn't the flavour I would normally go for. It's not that I dislike Paprika, after all many years ago when staying in Germany the choices of Crisp flavours pretty much were limited to Salted or Paprika. Don't know what it is, but i'm a little put off by this flavour.
So why buy them? The height of Laziness. Asda were selling these on offer for 71p and I was going to buy a tube to take to a buffet. They had tubes on the end aisle of the shop, and also where they would normally be on the Crisp aisle. However I was bored of being in Asda, and there was only yhis flavour on the end aisle, so I took them. After all that I forgot to take them to the Buffet, so I opened them the other day, and have to say I found them to be alright!
They are in a 155g cardboard tube and like all Pringles the Crisps are stacked on top of each other. The Tube is an orangy-yellow colour and has the Pringles writing in Yellow and a Picture of the Pringles logo, which is a man's face. There is a few pictures of Peppers on here as well. The tube is sealed and there is a small plastic lid on these as well.
The Crisps were a lot nicer tasting than what I expected. These are slightly shaped and curve in on 1 side and out on the other. The Crisps are light tasting and although they are Crispy, they break up easily enough. You can see the Powdered Flavouring on the Crisps and they look Brown and a BBQ flavouring looking. The taste of these are slitly BBQ with a little Pepper-y twist. I could eat these as much as the other Pringles flavours, and I can see myself buying these again.
A nice surprise, just to think i've been avoiding these all those years!
I do love my snacky foods so whilst out shopping with my Mother today I saw these reduced from £1.25 a tube to 89p a tube in Sainsbury's and decided to give them a go as this was one of the few flavours from within the range I hadn't tried! I do try to avoid the purchase of these cos the slogan 'You cant stop once you've popped' is very true in my case and I always sit and devour a whole tube in one sitting!
Bright orange and yellow cardboard tube with a yellow silver foil seal over the actual crisps and a clear plastic lid covering that tightly. On the tube there is a drawn on face and in bright yellow writing I'm told they are Pringles then under that in white writing I'm told they are Paprika Flavoured and are suitable for Vegetarians and the size is stated on the bottom of the tube in black writing (which is 155g). There is a picture of the crisps on the front with some juicy red peppers and a pile of powder which depicts the paprika. On the back of the tube once again I'm told what they are, ingredients are listed, I'm told they are made in Belgium, contact details for Procter & Gamble are given (the manufacturers of the product), nutritional information is listed and finally there is bar-code on there. Nice enough distinctive packaging this is.
Large and a plain vanilla colour in places with a dark yellowy/orangy colour on the majority of the crisps which is the flavouring of course. I do like the curve to the centre of the crisps (for ease of handling) and like the way they are unmessy to eat.
They are crispy, fresh and light with a deep crunch to each one. A slight bacon smell in my view is the whiff these give off along with fried potato and all in all they taste rather nice though not too heavily really.
They do taste of a light paprika and have no spice to them as such. To me they taste a little reminiscent of bacon flavoured crisps though they don't give me indigestion thankfully! They are well seasoned with salt to ping the natural flavours out I.E potato ad they are not greasy to the touch or to the taste.
All In All....
Not my favourite flavour from Pringles as I don't find them flavoursome enough or interesting enough to eat and for me in the taste stakes they are rather flat and dull. Ok though and of course they are the usual quality we expect from Pringles so really if your interested in trying these there's no reason not to! They're ok but give me the BBQ flavoured one's any day of the week thanks lol.
Available in all good supermarkets, corner shops etc and and in a lot of flavours! Do look out for special offers on these as well people!
Pringles are very tasty and in fact irresistible crisps. My favourite flavour (although it varies) is paprika. I really love the sweet peppery flavour.
These pringles have plenty of flavouring sprinkles on them and this flavouring is very evenly spread which means that every crisp and every mouthful is just perfect, with enough flavour but not too much. The flavouring is an orangey brown colour and you can see where it is dispersed on the crisp and so it is clear from first sight whether the powder is evenly spread.
The crisps are oval shaped and fit really well in your mouth if you want to be a pig and devour a whole crisp in one go! They are nicely crunchy.
There is one downside. The first is that you can eat almost a whole tube before realising how much you have eaten and suddenly feeling bloated.
Each tube contains 155 grams of delicious pringle crisps. They vary considerably in price from 80 pence when you find a good offer up to nearly two pound if you end up in desperate need of some in a local corner shop. It's good to get a bargain but they are so delicious that I have paid £1.99 for a tube I have to be honest.
I was going to use the "Once you pop, you can't stop" title for my review, but when flicking through the numerous Pringles write-ups here on dooyoo, it seems that particular heading has (obviously) already been a popular choice! Therefore, I have chosen to use my current title as Pringles do actually make me sick - but more on that later.
Description & History Lesson
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Unless you have been living in a cave for the last thirty years, you'll realise that 'Pringles' (manufactured by Proctor and Gamble) are oval (or more precisely 'saddle' shaped) crisps packaged in a cardboard tube. This ingenious design allows them to stack neatly together, and also fit comfortably into the mouth. Pringles were first sold in the United States in 1968, and today the popular snack is enjoyed in over thirty countries around the world.
- - - -
A 155g tube of Paprika Pringles can be purchased from Tesco for £1.55 - they are also currently in a promotion where you can purchase '2 for £2.65', representing a saving of 45p.
Although Pringles would fall into the category of 'potato chips', a closer look at the ingredients reveals that under 50% of their content is actually potato! This has probably be done on purpose by Proctor and Gamble in order to dodge the 17.5% VAT rate which is charged on crisps in the UK.

Paprika Pringles are very tasty and incredibly moreish - very hard to put down once you've had one. The paprika taste is slightly spicy, and provides a more interesting flavour than the Pringles 'Original' variety. So why, you may ask, have I only awarded Paprika Pringles two stars? well, it goes back to my title - if I eat six or seven Pringles (of any sort) I will be sick! There must be something in the ingredients that doesn't agree with me, which is a real shame as I like the taste. I'm generally not allergic to many things so it does seem a bit weird that they have that particular effect on me.
Therefore, no matter how good they taste, I think you'll agree that no (semi) potato based snack products are worth being sick for :)
Pringles are tasty potato crisps.
They have the well known slogan 'Once you pop you cant stop!'
The Pringles are packaged in a cool way. They are packaged in a cardboard tube which has a plastic replacable lid. The Pringles are stacked up on top of each other inside the tube. These are stored in a great way as you can open eat a few and then reseal for a another day. The flavour that I bought most recently was Paprika. This flavour is packaged in an orange colour tin. There is the picture of the 'Pringles Man' on the front.
The Pringles are delicious. They are very crunchy. The Paprika flavour is very nice and slightly spicy. The Pringles seem to be flavoured on one side only and I find that if you place the tastier side on your tongue they are more flavoursome. There are many different flavours of Pringle available so there should be enough for everyone to choose from. These tubes are ideal for parties and will be snapped up right away!
They come in different pack sizes. You can get a mini version for lunchboxes.They do not contain artificial colours.They are suitable for vegetarians
Dehydrated Potatoes, Vegetable Oil, Corn Flour, Paprika Flavour (Wheat Flour, Flavour Enhancers: Monosodium Glutamate, Disodium Inosinate and Disodium Guanylate, Onion Powder, Paprika Powder, Garlic Powder, Flavourings), Wheat Starch, Maltodextrin, Emulsifier (E471), Dextrose, Salt, Rice Flour
They are in the supermarkets now for a very good price. They are half price and cost £1.48. Great to stock up for parties.
Pringles Paprika mmm, I thought looking up and down the aisle at christmas for something new to try. The box a striking yellow with peppers and crisp around it Pringles paprika stamped upon it and the characteristic cylindrical tube with plastic top and tin foil seal, sttod out above all others. Naturally I picked it up and put it in my trolley. Went to checkouts after completing my shop and hurried home.
Didn't get as far as christmas, had to try them out first didn't I?
First we all opened the tub together and immediately got the smell of you guessed it paprika, and oiled crisps. Not unpleasant.
Then the taste test. We all took one, looked at it decided that the paprika could have been more evenly distibuted over the crisp and this all before putting it in our mouths.
We put the crisps into our mouths and crunched munched and digested them.
Decision:- On the whole not at all bad definitely tasted the paprika flavour leaving a slightly hot feeling on your tongue when you had more than a couple. But delicious really nice.
But like the advert say's can't stop eating them until you've popped the last one. Go get some and treat yourself today they are really worth the try. needless to say we went out for more for christmas easter and Newyear. Don't need a special occasion though. Great anytime.
I won't bore wyou with the details on the box go find out for yourselves.
