I am stuck in a rut. No matter how hard I try recently I cannot stop myself from popping a can of Pringles into my shopping basket and spending the ridiculous £2.50-3.50 on it when I know it'll be finished off in about a day. I find Pringles to be one of the most moreish crisps out there and even when I consciously try not to eat them all once I've bought a can, I find myself repeatedly opening it up and dipping in over and over. That's not to say its a bad thing though, so long as you aren't eating a ridiculous amount of cans a day, and I think a can every fortnight or so, or whenever it is I happen to grab myself some, is reasonable. Pringles are a potato crisp snack that come in a quite narrow tin with a pop off lid. To keep the crispness there is a foil type lid that if you fold back over helps to keep in the freshness after use. The inside of the tin is also lined with a foil type interior and this keeps them nice and crunchy even when they've been open for a while. The crisp themselves are a thin, curved shape which makes them slightly different to other brands of crisp, but not wholly outlandish. You can buy these in a small can about the size of a drinks can that is usually a lot cheaper than its larger partner, and is also a better amount without leaving you feeling very full (unless you can manage not to keep revisiting the can over and over like I do). The larger can is 190g and is usually quite expensive like I said, although I have recently bought some with a 'special price' label that meant they only cost me £1.79 which is quite a big saving and so its wise to loo out for this. My two favourite varieties of Pringles are this Salt and Vinegar kind and also the Sour Cream version which comes in a green can as opposed to the blue one you get with this. I enjoy both flavours but I find the Sour Cream version to be quite overpowering if I eat too many and so can only eat little and often when I buy that variety (which would perhaps solve my issue with eating the entire tin to myself, but I digress!). Quite predictably the flavour for these crisps is Salt and Vinegar and they are quite strong if you eat too many in a row. The same can be said for any brand of crisps in this flavour though and so its not a problem with Pringles in particular. The flavour is distributed well around the crisps and you don't get that problem where some are completely plain and others are ridiculously strong, and with every crisp they are each very tasty and moreish. I definitely would recommend this as its a great crisp for sharing or even just dipping into alone. The freshness is maintained for a fairly long time after opening and helps to keep that perfect crunch that makes Pringles memorable. The taste too is very tasty and has a strong, significant flavour.
Pringles are fast becoming my favourite brand of crisps; I normally opt for the Ready Salted variety but as my local store had sold out of this flavour, maybe because I had already bought a lot of them I decided to go for the Salt and Vinegar option. Like all Pringles these come in a tube and in the case of this flavour the colour is a light shade of blue. I managed to purchase a small size tube for 49 pence which I thought was pretty great, a 190g tube is currently £2.36 with Tesco and you will often find this brand featured in some kind of promotion depending on where you shop like buy one get one free for example. The crisps themselves are curved and stacked nicely one on top of another in the tube and you can replace the plastic lid or cap to keep them fresh which are a good feature. All the flavours of this type of crisp have always been fantastic and they are promoted as being hard to stop eating once you start and in my case this definitely rings true. It is no challenge for me to finish a tube of Pringles whatever the size or taste. The salt and vinegar is sharp and really makes you sit up and take notice but there is not so much vinegar to make them border line unpleasant or difficult to have in your mouth. As well as the taste the way these crunch and the texture of each one means that I always look forward to eating them. These are great to have at parties and gatherings either in their tube or a large bowl and a nice snack to pass around while watching a movie with friends. Typically per 100g you will find in these 515 calories and 32g of fat so a nice crisp as always in moderation.
I love crisps and savoury snacks, salt and vinegar is my favourite flavour. These are normally quite expensive and cost around £2 for a tube. You do however get several offers and currently these are £1 in Asda. You get 165g in a tube which is 90 Pringles. Pringles come in a tube which has a foil seal on the top to keep them fresh. There is also a plastic lid which you can replace so you don't have to eat them all at once. Ingredients; Dehydrated Potatoes, Vegetable Oil, Rice Flour, Wheat Starch (Gluten Free*), Salt and Vinegar Flavour (Barley Malt Vinegar Flavouring, Lactose from Milk, Acidity Regulators: Sodium Diacetate, Trisodium Citrate, Malic Acid, Turmeric), Maltodextrin, Emulsifier: E471, Salt,. * < 0.3% protein (Codex Alimentarius) Nutritional Value; Typical values; Per 25g portion Energy 129kcal Protein 0.9g Carbohydrate 13g of which sugars 1.1g Fat 8g of which saturates 1.7g Fibre 0.6g Sodium 0.2g Once you open the tube you can smell the vinegar straight away it is quite strong. The Pringles themselves have just the right balance of salt and vinegar, the vinegar is tangy but not too overpowering. They have a delicious crunch to them, they aren't at all greasy. A serving is 25g which works out at 15 pringles however I find that once you open a tube they are so moreish you want to eat a lot more! This is not good for your figure as they are fattening! There are also several other flavours available. I would highly recommend these, they are ideal for a party and are also great dunked in some dips.
Pringles have been aronud for years and they are an ideal and practically compulsary snack item at a party. They have a vast variety of flavours and often even dive into the more exotic flavours also. Their tubes are designed for sharing, however when left alone with these I'm sure most individuals could make a very good 'dent' in them. *** Price The price of these vary depending on what offers are available at the time. A really good purchase price for these would be £1, which a lot of supermarkets often have these priced at. At the worst normal price, these range from £1.29 up to anything as far as £1.89. *** Bad Stuff These 'sharing' tubes are sized at 165g, when considering only 25g = 129 calories, it just shows these are not the healthiest party snack. So as an estimate their is around 774 calories in the whole tube *ouch*. *** Ok So finally, these are a great snack for occasions and to bring to a party, you can gurantee everyone will have them. They come in such a variety of flavours that sometimes their is too much choice. Hope this helps
I rarely ever buy pringles as I find them too expensive and very addictive, which is a bad thing considering how bad they are for you! The tubs are generally about £2.00 for 165g, which to me does seem quite expensive, and apparently now there are 90 pringles in every tub, I never counted them before so I have no idea how many there used to be, and has anyone actually ever counted and checked that there are 90? and why did they pick 90 not 100? Counting aside, I think that the salt and vinegar are the weakest flavour of all the pringles, and there are lots to chose from. They are crunchy, as most people will know, but the taste of these I find quite offensive. The vinegar is so strong, it's really tangy and not very pleasant, it's not a sweet vinegar, it's very harsh, and there is also a lot of salt on them. I find that this flavour always leave a residue on my fingers too. I think this flavour is always the culprit for making the corners of peoples mouths sore too. I can't eat pingles whole but my husband does and I know that this flavour is the worst for making the sides of his mouth sore. It says on the nutritional information that per 100g of these there is 32g of fat, which is a huge amount, which is why I don't eat these on a regular basis. I think that I would pick this flavour last over other options, it's easily the weakest.
Last night my 14 year old daughter and I decided to have a girly night, watching St Trinian's and snacking on teacakes and Salt & Vinegar Pringles. I chose Salt & Vinegar because they are my daughter's absolute favourites, whereas I prefer the Sour Cream & Onion ones. I love nothing better than curling up watching a good movie, with a tube of Pringles within easy reach and spending time with my daughter adds to that. These Pringles come in a bright blue coloured tube, which is made of strong cardboard. On top there is a plastic pop off lid and under that is a foil disc, which seals the Pringles in and keeps them fresh. On all tubes, they are now advertising that there are an average of 90 Pringles inside, although I have never bothered to count them! The first thing I notice when I open these Pringles is the smell of vinegar, which is quite strong and sharp, I like a strong flavoured crisp, so find this very attractive. The Pringles are all very uniform in shape and are curled just enough, to be the perfect shape to slip over your tongue. They do look artificial and manmade and are covered in a powdered coating, but they still manage to look very attractive and appetising. It is surprisingly easy to fit a whole Pringle in your mouth at once and when you bite into them, you get a great 'crunch'. They are a very comfortable crisp to have in your mouth and they quickly melt away after some light chewing. The Salt & Vinegar flavoured Pringles are indeed very strong and you can definitely taste both the salt and especially the vinegar. Some may find them a bit too sharp and harsh on the taste buds, but I think they are just right, although my mouth does feel slightly tender, half way through the tub (I should of course not be eating half a tub, but I just can't help myself!). They are unbelievably more-ish and it takes a great deal of willpower to put the lid back on and put the tube down for a while! *Nutritional Value Per 25g Portion* Energy - 129 kcal Sugar - 1g Fat - 8g Saturates - 2g Salt - 0.5g Pringles Salt & Vinegar are suitable for vegetarians. These are available in Tesco in a 165g tube for £2.03, but they are on special until 20th March for 95p. At full price, these really have to be a special treat, but at 95p, they are much more affordable, so this is the time to be stocking up on them. The only difficulty, is stopping yourself from eating them all in super fast time and as they are really high in calories, this is not something you want to be doing! For me, these really are a 5 star product and I would happily eat them everyday, if they were more affordable.
I always left Salt and Vinegar Crisps in the shops. I thought that they smelt far too strong, and there was too much flavour on these. Not the kind of thing that people normally complain about, but I just thought the Vinegar part was too sour and I always steered clear of them. The wife bought a tube of these when they were on offer for 74p the other month, the wife loves a bargain, but I had to wonder if it was worth buying something that at the time neither of us were that keen on. This is just in the standard Pringles tube. It is thick cardboard and a light blue colour. There is the Pringles logo and lettering on the tube and it looks ok. The top of the tube is covered with a foil covering and there is a plastic lid as well, so this will keep the Crisps nice and fresh. These are just stacked on top of each other like all pringles. They are thin and crisp and break up nice and easily, You get 90 Crisps in the tube like other Pringles. Even for the normal price of around £1.60 for the 170g tub is alright, but the special offer price is good. Yes, these were full of flavour, but they weren't as bad as what I thought they would be. They had a very Vinegar tang to them, and it was a sort of Malt Vinegar taste. Not too much of Salt seasoning on these, and I think more Salt sprinkles would have made these even nicer and took the Vinegar taste away that bit more. These were a lot nicer than what I thought and as a result I would buy these again.
When it comes to unique packaged crisps Pringles are the most unique, coming not in a plastic packet but in a cardboard tube, supposed to stop the crisps from breaking in transit, it makes the product stand out on the shelf excellently and easily "re-sealable". With several flavours available each in their own coloured tube including Cheese and Onion, Paprika and these Salt and Vinegar ones in a blue tube. The 165g tube contains on average 90 crisps in it and are almost all in a single piece, which beats most other crisps which are often broken in to hundreds of crumbs in the bottom of the packet. The crisps are much paler than most other crisps, a very light and delicate looking yellow that's incredibly smooth, the texture is slightly rough on the outside though it's not too noticeable. When placed into the mouth as a single crisp it is crisps though not incredibly tasty, in fact it down right lacks flavour when eaten one at a time however like many crisps it's when eaten in multiples that they really shine. When eaten 3 or 4 at once the flavour is intense and gorgeous, the crunch of the crisps when you bite through a stack of them is loud and fresh, and it makes the whole experience wonderful. Though they may seem rather "common" when compared to things like Tyrells that's somewhat their charm, they are the perfect party snack and the perfect drunken snack. With a decent salt and vinegar flavour, they may just slightly over do the salt yet some how the crisps are still rather sweet.

Not many can handle a full Pringles tube and that helps to make them such a great shared snack. Oddly they are incredibly high on sugars for a supposed salty snack which is rather bizarre, but quite possibly what makes them so addictive. At around £1-£1.50 ($1.50-$2.20) a tube they are brilliant value for money and can often be found on offer, though sadly it seems like the smaller cartons (the snack sized ones) that were done a few years ago in the UK are no longer manufactured, or if they are they are difficult to find. Notes: The product is suitable for vegetarians Contains: Milk based ingredients and E471
Pringles are different. They aren't like regular crisps. While ordinary crisps are confined to the shackles of lowly packets on the shelves of supermarkets (or even worse, in super packs of 6 or 12), Pringles come in a long cylindrical shaped box and simply come to life once opened. They are something every decent gathering, movie night, or party should have. People eat them, people close the box, they stay fresh. Relatively. Seeing them on the shelves of a supermarket, it's hard not to be tempted by their odd looking appearence and promise of a superior taste. There is only one problem: you always end up throwing half of them out. People start eating them but never finish (in my experience at least). Then after a day or more, they are generally discarded as being 'off', or 'not fresh'. It's sad really. They show so much initial promise. Another problem is their shape. Everybody knows the shape of a Pringle, but for the new consumer, they are a bit hard to CONSUME! Yes, their shape makes them succeptable to crums and breakage. Fit a whole one in your mouth? Some people can. Some small people can't. It's a problem, but despite this, and the routine waste-age, it's supremely worth it. The taste is staggering. Salt and Vinegar in this case is quite simply addictive. You won't end up eating them all, but you'll definitely have a great time trying. The flavour isn't for everyone of course, but if you are reading this review and thinking of purchasing it, then you must be a fan. In that case, there are few better crisps out there than Pringles. It should be noted of course that you can purchase smaller packets of Pringles. It's just that most people don't - people's eyes are always bigger than their bellies.
****The Product**** These tubes are generously filled with Pringle potato snacks that are lined with foil inside to keep them fresher for longer. The good thing about these is that you can store them for another day as they come with the cap on and the foil put across the top these can stay quite fresh for a few days. That's if they last that long though I personally can eat a full tube to myself with a matter of an hour or so. They come in many different flavours as I have listed as below: Original Sweet Thai Chilli Paprika Sour Cream & Onion Salt & Vinegar Cheese & Onion Hot & Spicy Texas Barbecue Sauce Smokin' Bacon Cheese Tomato & Mozzarella Light Original Light Sour Cream & Onion The crisps definitely have a very strong flavour too which is nice, much more than other salt and vinegar brands of crisps out there. They are quite sharp and will sting your mouth if you eat too many though. I got mines on offer for 2 for £2 which is great value in my opinion. Others may not agree so much. I also found them available to buy from the £ Shop. The normal price for them £1.69 which considering you can get two packets for only an extra 31 pence when they are on offer I like to hold out till they are of offer. What with the credit crunch and all we all need to find some way to save I suppose. ****Nutritional Information**** Per 100g 515 calories Carbs- 53g Fat- 32g Sat Fat- 7g Sodium 0.81g If you have a 25g "portion" (which is about 15 Pringles) this contains about 129 calories and 8.5g fat. As you can see they are not a healthy snack but then again what crisp do you know that is? I am not saying it doesn't matter but every now and they wont hurt. ****Ingredients**** Each pack contains dehydrated potatoes , vegetable oil, rice flour, wheat starch (gluten free), salt and vinegar flavour (barley malt vinegar flavouring, lactose from milk, acidity regulators: sodium diacetate , trisodium citrate, malic acid, turmeric), maltodextrin, emulsifier: E471 and salt - so they are not exactly natural. ****My Overall Opinion**** I would recommend that you try these crisp they are so delicious and Salt and Vinegar is my favourite. That saying that they are known for "Once you POP you cant STOP" is sooooo true they are very moreish. I rate them a 10 out of 10 and these are a definite must try, I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do. Thank you for taking the time to read my review. I hope that it is of some use to you. Thank you.
Over Christmas I had eaten some of the flavoured Pringles crisps and this is my review. The Pringles come in different flavours like cheese and onion, original (like ready salted) sour cream and chive and a barbeque flavour. The ones I had recently were the salt and vinegar Pringles so this is the flavour I will be writing about. The Pringles all come in a similar design which is in a cardboard tube with a plastic lid on top. They seem to be the only crisps and snacks that are in packaging like this one so this makes them eye catching when on the supermarket shelf. When you pop the lid off the tube and take off the layer of foil that is on top of the tube to help keep the Pringles fresh, all I can smell is the strong smell of vinegar which I think smells lovely and it makes my mouth water because it is so strong. The Pringles crisps are in a circular disc shape that is curved. This makes them nice to eat because of the shape. The Pringles crisps have a lot of flavour on them and it seems to be stronger flavour on one of the sides. I think the Pringles crisps are quite addictive as I find it hard to stop eating them so this makes the advert for them "Once You pop You cant stop" seem true! The Pringles I ate were on Christmas night when I was at a gathering with friends. I had not had them for years and years but I enjoyed them so much that I bought a tube for myself when I was in Tesco recently. They cost me about £1.40 I think for the tube which has 90 Pringles crisps inside it according to the label on the tube. They are on offer often and I have seen them for a pound for a tube. This is good value because the tube is 165g. Not good news for calorie watchers though cos 25g of pringles has 129 calories which is a lot I think. They really are great for party and get togethers though. I would suggest giving the Pringles crisps a try out as they are very tasty and I like eating them with dips or when watching a film and having a drink. They are very nice and I would try out other flavours soon because I like these ones so much.
Salt & Vinegar Crisps have never been a favourite of mine, but after nibbling at these at someone's house a few weeks ago I ended up buying myself a tube and enjoyed them. Being the festive season most shops are selling these around the £1 mark. These can cost anything up to £2, so for £1 it is pretty good value. These comes in a 170g tube and now the tubes boast that they contain 90 Pringles per tube. Packaging is alright. They are a long, thin-ish cardboard tube which has a sealed paper lid covering which rips off easily enough, and a plastic lid on top of that. I guess this will keep the Crisps nice and fresh. The main colouring on this is a medium-light blue colour. It has the Pringles logo in clear view and a little Picture of a Crisp. I'm sure most of us know what a Pringle is and looks liks, The Pringles are stacked on top of each other in the tube and they are slightly shaped. On 1 side of them they are slightly rounded, and the other side dips in, so they are slightly curved. The Crisps are quite thin, and they break up easily enough when you bite into them. I like them as they taste nice and Potato-y and although when all mushed up after chewing they tend to become a more pasty mush, I like that. Now to the taste of these. They are quite strong tasting, but not too strong. The Vinegar seems quite tangy and slightly Malty, and there seems to be a generous sprinkling of Salt on these. I would say I could taste the Vinegar more through. I don't have a tube handy just now but believe that a 25g serving og these have about 141 calories, but could you sto at just having the 25g? A nice tasty Crisp which when on offer is a pretty good deal.
It's the festive season and that means one thing...... food and plenty of it. By now I think I have had the pleasure of experiencing numerous party "buffets" and a staple item on most of them buffet tables (including my own buffets I have hosted) has been Pringles, Salt and Vinegar to be exact. ***Packaging*** The standard sized Pringles come in a 165g Cardboard tube. This has a foil lid with a clear plastic lid over the top of the tube. This is a very handy pack for storage as it keeps the Pringles fresh, but as the slogan goes "Once you pop, you just can't stop" means that it is quite unlikely that you will be storing the Pringles for very long. The salt & vinegar flavour Pringles come in a blue tube. This has the Pringles logo on the front of the packaging and a sign stating that inside the pack there are 90 Pringles! ***Price*** The standard price of a 165g of Pringles is around £1.50 in Asda and Tesco etc. However as the festive season approaches the supermarkets put special offers on Pringles. I was able to get two tubes of Pringles in Tesco for £0.99. At standard price Pringles are average value, on special offers they are very good value. ***Salt & Vinegar Pringles*** Salt & Vinegar Pringles are very morish and as soon as you open the packet they make your mouth water. The Pringles have a strong vinegar scent. The appearance of the Salt and vinegar Pringles is a curved light golden crisp. The salt and vinegar flavoured Pringles are slightly lighter in colour than the other Pringles. The taste of the Pringles is fantastic and they have a great crunchy texture. As soon as you put the Pringle in your mouth you are hit with a very strong vinegar flavour with a slight saltyness. The vinegar taste is very acidic and lasts until you swallow the Pringle. One thing I do find is that if you use Pringles to dip they are pretty useless and snap off in the dip. Therefore on your buffet table keep the Pringles away from your dips otherwise you find stray pieces of broken Pringles scattered in your dips. **Nutritional Information** Per 100g 515 calories Carbs- 53g Fat- 32g Sat Fat- 7g Sodium 0.81g If you have a 25g "portion" (which is about 15 Pringles) this contains about 129 calories and 8.5g fat. Not the healthiest of snacks but these are crisps so for those on a diet use your common sense and stick to carrot sticks and celery! ***Overall*** Pringles are a great food to have at parties as they are easy to eat, and have a nice crunchy texture to them without being too heavy. The salt and vinegar flavoured Pringles are a favourite of mine as they have a great flavour, a strong tangy vinegar flavour that is not too salty. The main downside is the calorie and fat content. Also if you plan on having dips on your buffet table do not put the Pringles next to them as you find that because the Pringles snap easily you will end up with a good scattering of Pringles in your dips, left by your party guests! Aside from a few minor gripes in my opinion a staple party food favourite, and the salt & vinegar flavour are definitely the best flavoured Pringles!
With the festive season quickly approaching, supermarkets have been running some pretty good promotions on Pringles. In Morissions a few weeks ago I picked up three tubes of Pringles for the price of one, which is a fantastic deal by anybody's standards. You really can't complain when you're paying £2 for three tubes (that works out at 66p per tube!). Although I do like Pringles, to be honest I probably wouldn't have purchased these if they weren't on offer and Christmas wasn't just around the corner. The main thing that usually puts me off this product is the calorie content. There is a whopping 520 calories per 100g, which means that you get 858 calories (if my maths is correct!) per a 165g tube. You also get 35g of fat per 100g, which is an incredibly high amount of fat. So although I think these are great to have out during a party or over the festive period, like all crisps you have to eat them in moderation. They are extremely tasty, I'd be inclined to agree with the slogan - "Once you pop you just can't stop" because it's hard to put these away once you've opened them! The curved shape fits into your mouth perfectly and they are very crunchy and easy to eat. I think they have the correct combination of salt and vinegar, however in a way I think you can taste the fat in these crisps - they have a slight taste of oil. Each pack contains dehydrated potatoes , vegetable oil, rice flour, wheat starch (gluten free), salt and vinegar flavour (barley malt vinegar flavouring, lactose from milk, acidity regulators: sodium diacetate , trisodium citrate, malic acid, turmeric), maltodextrin, emulsifier: E471 and salt - so they are not exactly natural. However they are tasty and great as a one off treat. So look out for offers in your local supermarket and get stocked up fro Christmas!
Pringles make you tingle...on the tongue, at any rate! The salt and vinegar variety in particular has a lovely just-right mixture of salt and vinegar, I feel, in just the correct amounts, to justify the name! Pringles come in a lovely long tube, approximately the size of your average kitchen roll, but a little slimmer. They are in what I consider to be a very handy container, with an easily poppable lid, of a clear plastic variety, so that once the container is opened and you have "imbibed" you can easily see how many are left...if, indeed, you do not eat them all in one go! It is very easy to do. I like them alot. So do all of my family. We never manage to NOT finish a container between us. I really think they are great value at Semi-Chem for only £1 each. I never buy them anywhere else, although you often get some offers in supermarkets at about £2 each, I feel that they are the best value in Semi-Chem, which incidentally is best for sweets and biscuits, price-wise, too. You can buy Pringles Salt & Vinegar in the distinctive blue tube with Mr Pringle himself on it, looking dapper with his handlebar moustach and red bowtie, very festive, lots of fun. They are made in Belgium by Procter & Gamble and ingredients are as follows - Dehydrated potatoes, vegetable oil, corn flour, salt and vinegar flavour (barley malt vinegar flavouring, lactose, acidity regulators, sodium diacetate, trisodium citrate, malic acid), wheat starch (gluten free), maltodextrin, emulsifier, E47q, salt, rice flour, dextrose, <3% protein (Codex Alimentarius). You will also be relieved to know they are "packed in a protective atmosphere"!!! Once you pop, really, I would be surprised if you can't stop....as the advert used to say. I am not sure if it still does, simply because I very rarely watch adverts these days...after all, I am always on here writing reviews instead!
