Advantages: Very tasty, great flavour, good addition to existing range
Disadvantages: Far too addictive and undoubtedly no good for your waistline.
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 :)
Summary: Anyone got any tubs spare? :D
