Pringles Salt & Vinegar
Advantages: Taste amazing.
Disadvantages: Expensive when full price, high in calories.
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!

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.
