Pringles Salt & Vinegar
Disadvantages: Too moreish, price in some places
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.
Summary: A great treat
