Ok so crisps are not the ideal thing to have aroud when you are on a health kick but I saw these Smokey Bacon Pringles in Home Bargains for 99p and I couldn't resist. Now if you are familiar with Pringles you will know they are slightly different from other crisps in a number of ways. They come in a tube for starters which has a Pringles covering over them. Then over that is a clear plastic lid. To get into them you need to remove both the second layer will give a Pringles pop as you remove it. The clear lid can then be used to keep them fresh not that they are left long in my house to need to use this buts its good for those of you with self control.
On opening these particular Pringles you can smell the smokey bacon flavouring almost instantly. The Pringles crisps are larger than normal crisps also they have almost a dome shape to them which allows them sit on top of each in the tube they come in. A large tube contains 165g of Pringles which seems to be around 90-100 crisps each 25g you eat is 129 kcal and they are delicious so having 90 in a can can be dangerous for the old weight watching.
These smokey bacon flavour ones have a light coating on them as I find all Pringles have which leave a light flavouring on my lips as I eat them adding to the experience. The flavour is just like bacon and you can taste them after you have eaten them also which I do find tends to happen with smokey bacon crisps of all brands. Pringles are also great for eating with dips.
Overall I give these Pringles 5 stars very tasty.
These are just new out and the flavour that was missing from Pringles. I like to eat Pringles and I would say that in normal Crisps then Smokey Bacon is 1 of my favourite flavours. In our household it is the flavour that me and the wife eat the most from Walkers. It is just great.
We spotted these around the end of April. They were on an end aisle in Tesco and a few new pringle flavours were on it. There was Sea Salt and Cracked Black Pepper, and Doner Kebab, which the wife had to get 1 of each tube. Instead of the usual price of around £2, these were on a better than half price offer of 95p. Always worth a try when they are as low a price as this.
The tube is just the same as all Pringles. Quite a thick cardboard tube with a plastic lid and a foil bit covering the opening, so when you put the foil bit back and then put the plastic bit over again then it is sealed. Not that Crisps kick around our house opened for long anyway. The colouring on the tube is a reddish brown colour, so the normal Smokey Bacon colouring.
These are just the same that all the Pringles are. Thin Crisps stacked on top of each other in the tube. With a slightly curved edge and the other edge goes in the way a bit.
So how do these taste? They are lovely. You can smell the Smokey Bacon scent when you first open these and see that the Crisps have a slight powdery red tinge to them in places. When I had a couple of these you can taste the Bacon but it isn't too strong a taste. After eating most of the Crisp I would say the Bacon taste builds up a bit more, but it is nice in a simple but nice Bacon flavouring.
One of my favourite flavours in Pringles. Just have to wonder what took them so long to bring these out.
I was in Tesco last night with my daughter, looking for some tea, when her eyes fell on these Pringles. They were at the end of the aisle on special offer. Only £1.00, I think. Can I please have them Dad? As a Dad who can never seem to say no (one of my faults) I agreed, and we went off to pay.
Once in the car her first action was to open the Pringles. As we had still to have tea, I kindly reminded her not to 'scoff' the lot, whilst grabbing some for myself.
The Pringles (made by Procter and Gamble) come in a long cadrboard tube, covered in foil internally, to keep the extra fresh. They also have a plastic lid, that can be replaced, if you want to save them for a later date.
Although I have seen many types of Pringles before, I haven't seen these ones, so maybe they are a new flavour - although it doesn't state this on the packaging.
Upon opening the container, you are met with the normal layers of potato snack. Not just thrown in there, but arranged in a nice neat row. They have a round type shape, with a curve and are extremely crunchy. In each box there are 165g, the equivalent of about 5 packs of crisps, so be careful you don't get carried away.
(yeast powder, flavour enhancers: momsodium glutamate, disodium guanylate and disodium inosinate, wheat flower, onion powder, flavourings, colour: paprika extract, garlic powder, citric acid)
These pringles are packed with calories and are in no way healthy for you. In each 100g expect 518calories and 32g of fat. And remember, that is just about 2/3 of the box. I also found that although the crisps were very fresh and crunchy, and certainly smelt and tasted of smoky bacon, they were not half as nice (in flavour) as other bacon crisps I've eaten.
For recommendation, I'm going to give this a 3, and say I would 'just about' recommend them. They aren't the tastiest bacon crisps I've eaten, but they weren't too bad either. The amount of calories is also a concern. I'd buy them again, if on offer!!
I am a huge fan of Pringles in general and eat far more of them than I probably should. The Smokey Bacon flavour used to be one of my favourite finds from my local supermarket, but no-one seems to be selling them in my area anymore.
If you are not familiar with Pringles, they are quite thin crisp type snacks. They tend to be larger than crisps and more solid. Pringles come in a wide range of different flavours of which Smokey Bacon is just one of many. They come in an airtight metal tube with a plastic lid to stop them going soft.
When you take the lid off the tube, there is an immediate smell of Smokey Bacon which smells a lot like Smokey Bacon crisps. This makes my mouth water quite a lot and I can't wait to dive in and start eating them. They taste quite strongly of Smokey Bacon although the flavour isn't equal across the whole of each Pringle - I often find that certain parts of each Pringle have a lot of visible flavouring while others don't. This means that you will get a strong taste of smokey bacon in some bites but other bites will taste more bland. I would describe the smokey bacon taste as more intense than you would get in a packet of smokey bacon crisps as the flavouring is quite strong.
Pringles tend to be quite expensive at over a pound per tube, but you can often find them on BOGOF offers in supermarkets, which makes them better value. On average, they are around £1.45 per tube regardless of the flavour.
Pringles tend to be high in salt and fat so they are best eaten in moderation. They are not the healthiest treat around!
Ah Pringles!! "Once you pop you just can't stop!", it's very true, I can never make a tube of Pringles last more than 2 days because they're just so addictive, especially the tubes that have great flavours such as Smokey Bacon, it's one of my favourites! I have been buying Pringles for years but, for those of you who don't know much about them here's a little background information:
Pringles were first produced in 1964. Since then Pringles have been made available in more than 100 countries with over 45 different flavours so there's something for everybody!
I find them so addictive because there is no other crisp like them, in fact i seem to remember a few weeks ago they were declared not officially a crisp as they come in tubes not packets and so they will now have to pay more tax on their earnings. Anyway back to the Pringles now.
They come in a tall cylinder tub with an airtight lid. The Smokey Bacon flavour is a red colour which is very similar to the plain flavour but you can tell the difference between the two because the pictures of pringles on the front are slightly different.
The pringles rae only about a couple of mm's thick but about 6cm's long and in a curved shape. They are a pale yellow colour with a brownish flavouring all over them.
When you open the tub you can smell them straight away and just won't be able to resist popping one into your mouth and munching away. They have a wonderful crunch to them even a few days after opening the pot because of it's airtight lid. They taste fairly strongly of smokey bacon, it's not to strong though, just enough for you to get a proper taste.
They're can be quite expensive at between £1 and £2 a pot, normally with buy one get one free offers. Overall I highly recommend them!
