      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Wonderful, tasty, conveniently-packed crisps/chips

      OK, so these are my absolute favourites. The other flavours are fine but you can't beat Texas BBQ Sauce. These are in a can, 190g and the price can range from £1 to £2.50, depending on the supermarkets and which special offers are available. I tend to get mine from Asda as they regularly have a £1.50 special price. Occasionally, Poundstretcher will do them for £1. The crisps/chips are lovely and crunchy but don't have any 'sharp edges' which you sometimes get with normal crisps, especially kettle chips. This does mean, though, that you can get through an awful lot in a very short space of time. The chips are kind of oval and dip in the middle. They stack on top of each other nicely and once you put the plastic top back on, they stay really fresh. This means that you can have a few at a time and come back to them later. It also keeps out the wasps in summer. The flavour is just like a barbecue, very meaty, tomato-y and there is hint of garlic and 'smoked onion and chilli' flavour. They actually taste amazing. One of the best snacks around, especially if you've got friends coming over!

        love 'em

        Out of all the different flavours of Pringles, my favourite is definitely the Texas BBQ Sauce ones. Whilst the Ready Salted and Salt and Vinegar ones are nice, these BBQ ones are just something else! Pringles come in a long cardboard tube which is lined with foil on the inside. The Pringles are stacked in a big pile. The only problem I have with this packaging- is that whilst it's ok when you first open the tube, when you get to the bottom, you have to stick your whole arm in which is annoying if you like to eat them straight out of the pot. I guess you could 'pour them out' into a bowl or something though. The Pringles are a round-ish / oval-y shape with a dip in the middle - this is good as they fit in your mouth- they are quite big though to fit fully. The are a golden colour and dusted with a dark brown powder - this is the flavour. The Pringles are delicious; really smoky with a hint of sweetness. They are incredibly moreish- as the saying goes 'Once you pop, you just can't stop' - it's true! The Pringles are very distinctive - they have a very unique taste. Although they are very different to them, the only crisps I can think of which have are similar to them are the Walkers Max Crisps which have a paprika taste. These crisps are very full flavoured although there is something quite dry about them. Now for the negatives. Nutritionally, these crisps aren't that great. A 190g tube is split into 6 portions. Each 30g portion will set you back 153 calories and 1.2g of protein. There is also 16g of carbohydrates (of which 1.3g is sugar) and 10.0g of fat (of which 1.4g is saturated per 30g portion. There is also 0.8g of fibre and 0.19g of sodium per portion. So all in all, not great for the old waistline. I don't buy Pringles very often - only at Christmas and at other times when I fancy a treat. I paid £1.79 for a 190g tub - they were on special offer and yet I still think that they are really expensive. All in all, would I recommend them? Absolutely!! Obviously, they are not the kind of thing you should be eating every single day, although as an occasional treat, I think that they are great. They are also a great party food! Thanks for reading!

        Disadvantages

        Very addictive, crisp snack, full of flavour and freshness

        I've never really been a fan of crisps, I only eat them occasionally and I am quite fussy when it comes to the crisps I eat. This weekend I fancied a change from the usual Walkers Sensations that I usually eat, and I was in my local Sainsburys when I saw Pringles on special offer for £1.25 a tub. I know £1.25 is quite expensive for crisps, even if they are on special offer, but these are well worth the money. ==What is it?== Pringles are a potato and wheat based snack, originally developed by Proctor and Gamble in the 1960's, but as of May this year, the large cereal conglomerate Kelloggs owns them. Pringles are different to most crisps on the market, as their main ingredient is dehydrated potatoes, as opposed to the usual undried potato you find in most other crisps, some argue that they shouldn't be called crisps because of this. I don't remember Pringles being around during my childhood, so I think they must have had some sort of resurgence in the early 1990's, with a popular advertising slogan "Once you pop, you can't stop". This advertising slogan is so true, as once the paper seal is broken, there is nothing on this earth that will make me save these crisps for another day (They do have a plastic lid, so if you are strong willed you would be able to reseal them). The crisps are shaped like a saddle, each one the perfect size, and the tube that they come in seals all the freshness in so each crisp tastes how a crisp should...erm crisp. The crisps come in different flavours, such as; Sour Cream and Onion, Salt and Vinegar, Ready Salted and Texas BBQ (My favourite). ==Taste== The taste of BBQ Pringles is amazing, unlike any BBQ flavoured crisp I have tasted before, they have a very distinctive taste; a smokey BBQ type taste. The flavour that these crisps are coated in seems quite powdery, but it isn't an unpleasant feeling when it hits your tongue, put it this way, if you like dry roasted peanuts, then you won't find the powdery texture too dissimilar to them. ==Nutritional Information== These crisps are very high in fat 10g per 30g of crisp and very high in calories with 153 Kcal per 30g, so these are extremely bad for you. Why is it that everything that is bad for you tastes so good? ==Price== You can buy these crisps almost anywhere, from off licenses to petrol stations, grocers, newsagents and supermarkets and prices vary depending on where you buy them, so it is best to shop around. ===Example=== These usually retail in Sainsburys for £2.50 for a 190g tube, but at the moment you can buy them for £1.25. In Tescos they normally retail at £2.48, but they have an offer where you can purchase 2 tubes for £3.00. ==Verdict== For an occasional treat, these are great, although I would recommend having someone else to share a tub with, or you may find your weight ballooning after munching your way through a tub of these on your own. The crisps are incredibly tasty, but quite expensive, which is probably just as well really, because if they were cheaper I would be about 20 stone. These are not something I buy often and it was only through seeing them on special offer that prompted my purchase.

        Disadvantages

        Overall tasty, slightly addictive crips!

        My husband and I are both big crisp fans but we tend to only purchase Pringles when we have guests visiting for small parties. This is because they come in handy tubes which people can just help themselves to directly from the packaging and they can be resealed. Pringles come in all different flavours but at Christmas there was a special offer on the big party sharing tubes of Pringles in Tesco and one flavour I decided to purchase was the Texas BBQ sauce. The large party size Pringle tubes were on offer in Tesco for just £1.00 at Christmas which I think is excellent value as they contain 190g and can be quite expensive when full price. You can also buy these Pringles in slightly smaller tubes and also mini individual sized tubes too. The Pringles come in a large cardboard tube that has a metal bottom and a plastic removable top which can be replaced, that is if you can resist eating the whole tube in one sitting! When you remove the plastic top you can find a foil seal covering the tube which helps to keep the Pringles fresh and can easily be removed by peeling it off with the protruding tab. Even though the Pringles can move around in the tube I have very rarely ever found any broken ones in the tube as it seems to protect them well. Once you open the tube you will find the oval, curved Pringles inside stacked on top of one on top of the other. I am not sure quite how many Pringles you get in a tube but there is a fair amount as they are quite thin. The Pringles are a golden colour and you could see the BBQ sauce flavouring coating them which was a reddish/brown coloured powder. The only thing that I found disappointing with these was the fact that the BBQ sauce flavouring was not evenly distributed over the Pringles it seemed just to coat half of them which wa the case for the whole tube. It would have been nice to see the Pringles have a nice even coating which I think would have made them taste a bit more flavoursome. The flavouring that was on the Pringles was very nice and had a slightly sweet and smoky flavour and certainly tasted like BBQ sauce. The Pringles have a nice texture and are very crunchy and the tube allows them to stay fresh and crunchy for a few days if you reseal it correctly. I do generally prefer to eat real potato crisps rather than reformed potato snacks like Pringles but I find these to be very moorish and just like they say in the advert 'once you pop you can't stop'!

        great tasting but the only problem that i have is that once you pop you cant stop.

        Pringles Texas BBQ Sauce flavour. I absolutely love pringles, they are great as an all round party snack, great to share with your grandchildren and also just great in general. I noticed today in Sainsbury's supermarket that if you brought one can thats the 1900grams you will get one free, costing £2.29p as this is the party sized can. Comes in a purple coloured can and has a picture of a skewer with pringles onions and tomatoes on. The taste is absolutely devine, bbq flavouring with a morrish taste that you just cant stop eating them. A rich bbq flavouring with a hint of sweetness too. You will have to purchase these to find out for yourself just how good they really are. Nutritional information. energy per 190 package. 1.0grams. protein carbohdydrate 13g fat of which saturates 1.7grams. fibre 0.64grams sodium 0.15grams/ I love the fact that they also have a plastic cap so that you can reseal these and then keep the pringles crisp and fresh as they should be. They are very crunchy and very crispy, I love the way that they stack up together. ingredients are as follows :- dehydrated potatoes. vegtable oil. wheat. starches. barbecue flavouring. sugar. spices. tomato powder, paprika extract, barley malt flour, yeast extract, maltodextrin, and packed in a protective atmosphere. I love to have these when i have a sandwich at lunch time, to have a few of these on the side of the plate.

        Disadvantages

        not for everyday use or for dieting

        Christmas wouldn't be christmas without Pringles and this year we had a few tubes to munch our way through, as they were on offer at Morrisons for £1 a tube, one of the flavours we bought was Texas BBQ which I hadn't tried before. Pringles are very well advertised on the television and come in a tube with the pringles stacked on top of each other, each pringle is a little larger than the average crisp size and is thicker and much crunchier. Once you have opened the plastic top and peeled the stay fresh pull off seal you can then begin to tuck into the lovely pringles inside the tube. The BBQ pringles are slightly coloured with a light brown tinge which I noticed straight away as I usually buy the original pringles which are a lighter colour than these, on crunching the pringles they have the same crunch factor as the other pringles and the flavour of the BBQ is quite tasty, it does taste of a smoked spicey flavour kind of like the sauces you can buy to use at barberque times. Not too strong but you can definately tell it's the flavour advertised on the tube. The tube I bought had a nice christmas theme on the front and can be recycled but I like to save them and save my spare change in them, they are great for saving up in as the top pulls on and off and you can just stand them on the window sill and pop your spare change into them and take them to the machines in supermarkets that weigh your change or you can swap the change at the bank. You get 165g of pringles in each tube, which is a good amount I haven't actually counted the pringles in the packet as once you open it you find that you just have to begin munching on the pringles and I cannot just eat one. They are very moreish and I find that I eat them two at a time as they crunch better than if you just have one at a time. They are not suitable for any one on a diet as the calorie content is quite high at 538 per 100g Out of this the fat that saturates is 7g so be careful not to over do these or you will put on weight. These are good for parties and snacks if your not dieting, I buy them when they are on offer as a special treat for me and the family as they are expensive at their normal price and don't last long once you ahve opened them. They are crunchy, tasty and delicious. I'd be happy to recommend them to you.

          Yum!

          When it comes to Pringles I'm with the majority of you reviewers out there.... I love them! I love crisps and for me Pringles are just such great quality, come in such great flavours and I for one can't stop till my stomach pops when I'm indulging in them! I love anything BBQ flavoured yet until last week hadn't tried these particular flavoured one's before so grabbed a tube as they were on offer (at the time in Asda) for 99p a tube! The Packaging: The crisps comes stacked in a purple and white cardboard tube with a peel off foil covering to the top of the tube with a clear plastic pull on/lid over that. On the front of the tub we are told that they are Pringles Texas BBQ Sauce and the weight is stated (which in this case is 165g). Other information on the tube includes ingredients and nutritional information being given and contact details for Procter & Gamble (the manufacturer of the product) are listed. The Crisps: Large and oval in shape these are relatively smooth crisps with a golden colour to them and a generous amount of orange and red spices sprinkled over both sides of the crisps. They have a rich sort of salty BBQ smell to the them and are of course stacked in the tube and there are about 100 of them with a curve to the middle of each one for ease of handling. They are delicious, thick enough without being thick as such and they possess a real potato taste to them although they are highly sprinkled with flavourings. They do taste BBQ flavoured and have a smoky taste to them and the flavour is made up BBQ flavouring (which is a mixture of spices and I can taste paprika in there!) and are nicely seasoned, a bit messy (as the flavouring is powdery in patches). These are not greasy, are crispy and terribly moriesh though I do find after I have consumed alot of them they get a little sweet after a while! Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans these are great quality crisp and ideal for dipping if you want to as they are not flimsy! I like them! Nutritional Information Per 25g: Energy: 129kcal Protein: 1.0g Carbohydrate: 13g of which sugars: 0.9g Fat: 9.0g of which saturates: 1.7g Fibre: 0.64g Sodium: 0.15g Available in all good supermarkets etc and if not on offer will cost about £1 a tube.

            Great for a film to munch through

            I love Pringles. This statement is true in both substance and fact. I am now, however head over heals in love with BBQ flavoured Pringles. These wonderful little crisp snacks come in a tall cylinder tube coloured dark purple. Other flavours of Pringles come in different coloured packs (Blue for Salt and Vinegar, Red for Original etc). The word Pringles and stamped smack bang in the middle of the packaging for all to see and is really eye catching. The way all Pringles are presented it is very clear what the product is. The tall tube is easily recognisable and shoppers can pick the product out from distance in any and all supermarkets. The crisps themselves are very moreish, and it's easy to eat your way through most of a pack (which contains about 90 individual crisps if the adverts are to be believed) without really noticing that you are eating. The crisps are a curved shape and are bite sized, obviously depending on how big your mouth is. I have a large mouth that accepts a lot of food so am able to fit them in, in one go no problem. There is a wide range of flavours available (a number I have listed above) and all are fairly good, but some are just way ahead of the others. These snacks not only taste great but on the whole are reasonably priced too. Prices range between £1.50 - "£2.00 in my experience, but recently I have been getting them on a great under half price deal at Tesco. This may also have increased my bias towards these yummy treats. Great to go with a film or just to tide you over when you are starving hungry.

              Once you pop you can't stop

              Pringles is well known for it's popular tag line "Once you pop you just can't stop", referring to the crisps that can be gone in a matter of minutes. Pringles are oval-shaped crisps, shaped like wedges in a variety of exciting flavors like Sour cream and onion, Salt and vinegar, Original, Texas BBQ sauce and many more. The Pringles Texas BBQ Sauce is the newest addition to my list. I have tasted different flavors of Pringles and I found this very enjoyable. I have never been a fan of barbecue flavors in crisps, but I actually found this Pringles version very good in taste! PACKAGING The tube has the famous logo of the Pringle man and the name of the product 'Pringles' in the usual bright yellow lettering. The design is very cool and refreshing. The purple backdrop and images of onion, tomato, pepper hooked with pringles gives you an idea how exciting the taste could be, which makes it more interesting and appealing. At the back of the tub were the ingredients and nutritional information written in different languages which were quite helpful to others. PRICE They currently on offer in Tesco for half price but a tub of Pringles usually cost around £1.50. TASTE On the first bite, you will get a spicy kick that tastes of paprika with a hint of BBQ sauce, but these crisps taste is quite subtle that makes me eat more and as you getting into it , you will notice a real sweet taste of a barbecue seasoning. The minute you pop the lid you will smell the aroma vibe and the reddish flavoring which are quite off putting to some people. The taste is quite tangy mixed with sweet which I absolutely love as well as the texture and thickness. NUTRITIONAL DATA per 100g (from the tub): Energy: 516 kcal Protein: 3.9g Carbohydrate: 53g (of which sugars : 3.8g) Fat: 32g (of which saturates : 7g) Fibre: 2.6g Sodium: 0.6g Although it has a great taste, they are not the healthiest snacks. These crisps are not designed to be eaten every day considering the fat content and high salt ingredient , so better have it as a special treat. RECOMMENDATION As what I expect, the quality of Pringles has always been superb and this flavor does not disappoint me so I highly recommend these Pringles texas barbecue sauce flavour. They are simply delicious and great in every aspect. These are also suitable for vegetarians. Definitely one of my favorite flavor so if you like barbecue, better try and give them a go. Thank you for reading ;-D

                Disadvantages

                Not the greatest Pringles, but still very nice

                Or "Pringoooals", as they seem to be called at the moment, with the ordinary pack photo replaced by a frankly bizarre one of beanpole England striker Peter Crouch making a kebab out of a motley collection of vegetables and Pringles by skewering them with a corner flag. Of course. Given that Pringles aren't an official sponsor of the England team, Crouch's white strip has no England markings on it, but the symbolism is pretty obvious. Mind you, I'm more impressed by the way in which he's skewered those Pringles without having them shatter into a zillion pieces! Quite apart from what "Texas BBQ Sauce" might have to do with English football in the first place, this silliness seems to be linked to a promotion on the Pringles website, where you can, if you are misguided enough, upload "your own unique 'Pringoooals' celebration" and be in with a shot of winning "some fantastic football prizes". Unfortunately when I checked the site just now, the only prize on offer seemed to be that ever-popular option, the "coming soon!" prize. Not impressive at all: by the time these packs were out, that contest should have been fully up and running. Returning to the crisps themselves (well, officially "savoury snack") we can see that they come in the usual cylindrical Pringles tube, which - so those excitable people in the current Pringles TV ads inform us - will store about 90 of the things. The 165g tube is around £2 at full price, which to be honest I think is quite dear, but I suspect that relatively few people actually pay this as they're forever on offer somewhere. I bought mine the other day in Tesco at somewhere around the 97p mark (I can't remember exactly, but it was definitely just under a pound), and at that price it's much better value. I hope nutrition fans won't castigate me for moving their favourite section down to the fourth paragraph today. I can perhaps make up for that by giving you all the interesting news that despite the flavour, these Pringles are not only gluten-free and vegetarian but vegan too, something you don't see all that often in a mainstream snack. There are no specific allergy warnings given, even that old favourite "this doesn't have nuts in, but we'll warn against it anyway so that you don't sue us". A 25g portion (if you have that much self-control) has 129 kcal and a bothersome 9g of fat. I've always found Pringles cans to be good at keeping the smell in, and so it is here: there's a nice waft of it when you rip off the seal, and not too much of a cardboard scent either. Crunchiness is on a par with other flavours in the range, and you still get the annoying little crumbs left in the bottom of the can. The actual taste of these things will be very familiar to anyone who's ever eaten a packet of just about any brand of BBQ flavour crisps. It would be pushing it - a lot - to say that it actually tasted of something you might put on your steak, but the taste is nicely rich and has a good, tangy edge to it. These are pretty good crisps, as indeed are most types of Pringles. I wouldn't say that they wowed me with their brilliance, but I'd be more than happy to buy them again, though it would be nice if they got their website sorted. Overall, I have few complaints, and given the existence of only a few minor niggles, four stars seems an entirely justified rating.

                  Great for parties or snacks, but not everyday.

                  I got some of these at the weekend as we had people coming over for lunch, and I wanted to make sure there were plenty of snacks for them to eat. They were on offer at the time and they cost £1.00 for a tube, which I thought was pretty good as Pringles are usually fairly expensive. It turned out they didn't actually eat any, so me and my husband ended up sharing them that evening. I was actually more impressed with the taste than I thought I would be. I prefer flavours like this thought to plain or salt and vinegar, so they were right up my alley. It was quite an intense barbecue flavour, and it was really nice, the strongest flavour that I could taste was the paprika. They were very smoky, a bit sweet and really lovely. They were also very crunchy. The only problem with the packet we had was that a lot of the crisps were broken, so it was hard to get them out, but I think that was maybe because they had been in the car for a day. I do find pringle tubes a bit annoying however when you get towards the bottom of the pack, and it's sometimes hard to reach the last ones without tipping the tube and getting crumbs everywhere. This particular flavour of pringles also has a coloured powder, which is the flavouring and it makes your fingers a bit messy, but that's nothing too bad. I know that pringles are really bad for you too, but I don't have them very often so I don't care about that too much. I would definitely buy this flavour again.

                  Really addictive tastey crisps!

                  Pringles Texas BBQ Sauce comes in a 165g purple tube, containing approximately 90 pringles. They currently cost 1.16 at Asda. One of the things I hate about share-type crisps is that once they have been opened they don't keep very well and often go soggy. That is the great thing about Pringles, there is a lid so that they keep well after they have been opened. So no more wasted party crisps! I bought Texas BBQ Sauce Pringles yesterday because I'm having friends over tonight, so naturally we need something to scoff while we're drinking. I was a little bit hungry so I thought I'd have a couple. Bad idea, they are amazing and now I've pretty much eaten half the tub! Oops, looks like were one tube of Pringles short for tonight! The reason I've eaten so many is that they are extremely morish. The taste stays in your mouth for a while after and you have to have a strong will to stop! The taste is quite difficult to describe, it's quite strong and meaty. They taste exactly how you would expect a Texas BBQ flavour to taste. I know that sounds daft but I have often tasted crisps that don't remotely taste like the flavour that they claim to be! Back to the packaging now and when I looked at the back of the tube to retrieve the ingredients and nutritional information I could not believe how much writing there was. Its quite difficult to find the information you want as the information is in so many different languages. This could be seen as a benefit for some people, but for me it is just annoying. The tube says that the Pringles are suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Unfortunately I cannot find any information about whether the Pringles are suitable for people with allergies. I'm not sure if they just haven't provided this information or I'm just getting lost in all the writing (sorry)! Ingredients (from the tub): Dehydrated potatoes Vegetable oil, Rice flour, Wheat starch, Barbeque flavour (sugar, flavourings, spices, wheat flour, dextrose, flavour enhancers; monosodium glutamate, disodium guanylate and disodium inosinate, citric acid, malic acid, colour, paprika extract, acidity regulator, sodium diacetate, onion powder, tomato powder, paprika powder, mustard seeds, barley malt flour, yeast extract, celery) Maltodextrin, Emulsifier, E471, Salt.

                    A very tasty snack but avoid if your on a diet

                    Pringles Texas Barbeque Sauce I LOVE Pringles! They are one of the most tasty snacks I've ever tried and once you open the packet and have one, it's just impossible to stop eating them! I love to eat them when I go to the cinema, or when I'm watching a film or a good TV show at home. They're one of those foods, that when you're feeling grumpy or tired, you can just nibble on one of these and they start to cheer you up.. OK, maybe that's a bit sad but anyway you get the point of what I'm saying - these are bloomin' delicious! Other flavours I have tried are Original, Sour Cream and Onion and Prawn Coctail. I have to say that Sour Cream and Onion and Texas Barbeque Sauce are join winners in my competition for which Pringles have the best flavour. I first tried these delicious little beauties in Texas Barbeque Sauce earlier this year. My mum had brought some back with her from Tesco, for no reason inparticular (they were probably on offer knowing her) and straight away when she pulled them out of the carrier bag I could sense the rest of my family's and I's greedy eyes fall upon them and think to ourselves "I'm havin' some!" You can probably guess from how excited we were when we saw these that foods like Pringles which are full of fat rarely come into our kitchen. We're fairly healthy eaters and most of what we eat is fruit, vegetables and lots of brown rice, anything low fat and whenever my mum does buy crisps, she'll always get the low fat ones. I'm not complaining about this, by the way, I'm glad we eat so healthily. However its times like this when our tongues touch the Pringle, that we just have to give in and eat them all! What do they look like? I think most people have probably seen what a Pringle looks like, but just in case any body hasn't I shall explain to you now, so that this review can be extra helpful! Pringles themselves basically look like crisps, except the edges are curved inwards so that they are a special unique shape which is unlike the shape of any crisp I have ever seen come out of a packet before! The colour is like a golden shade, with a hint of brown which I think is where the barbeque sauce flavour is on it. These Pringles are more special than normal crisps - instead of coming in a simple, boring packet that makes a noise when you open it, these come in a tub, which you can see in the picture. The tub is quite tall, I'd say about 25cm high and contains 170g of Pringles. The lid of the tub is transparent and pops easily on and off. The first time you open the tub there is always foil packaging there as well to keep your Pringles nice and fresh for when you eat them. The tub is also really handy as it can be re-used which is good if you are into recycling and looking after the environment. You can also buy smaller tubs of Pringles which would be handy for your child's lunch box in school. Is the flavour tasty? The flavour of the particular Pringles I am reviewing is Texas Barbeque Sauce. I seriously adore this flavour and can't explain into words just exactly how tasty and simply delicious this flavour actually is. I'm a huge fan of having barbeque sauce with my chips which I think could be part of the reason why I like this flavour so much, and to be honest if you don't like barbeque sauce I can't imagine you'd enjoy this flavour on your Pringles either at all, or as much as someone who does like barbeque sauce would. The flavour isn't too spicy but it is a little bit spicy. Overall I would rate this flavour 9 out of 10 and would say that it is very delicious and would recommend it, definitely. Nutritional Information There has to be a catch, doesn't there. Surely will something so perfect there has to be at least one thing bad about it - well, unfortunately there is. This may be obvious to some people, but Pringles are so fattening and very unhealthy. Once in science in school a few years ago, we did an experiment to see how much fat there was in Pringles. We held a single Pringle in tonges over the flame on a bunsen burner and we had to watch all the fat dripping off - it was disgusting! This is just a warning to anyone who is thinking of bingeing out on a lot of Pringles; they're best, like all foods, to be eaten in moderation. I've taken a screenshot of the nutritional information on the official Pringles website, and included it as a picture in this review so that you can see exactly how much there is. The source should be reliable as it is the official website for Pringles. Ingredients These are also shown in the screenshot but just in case for some reason you aren't able to see in the picture, these are the ingredients that the Pringles contain: Dehydrated potatoes, vegetable oil, vegetable fatcorn flour, cheese flavour (cheese powder), whey powder, flavour enhancer:monosodium glutamate, flavourings, buttermilk powder, onion powder, sugar, Food acid: lactic acid, yeast extract), wheat starch, maltodextrin, emulsifier: E471, salt, rice flour, dextrose. If you're wondering why Pringles are so addictive, I learned in science in school that the reason we want to eat them so much is because they are full of ingredients that give us energy and because our bodies are designed to want energy we have to keep eating these to get more as our bodies crave it. For example they contain dehydrated potatoes which is basically just starch which is absolutely full of energy. Where can you buy them and how much are they? You can buy Pringles from most good supermarkets, such as Asda, Tesco, Sainsburys etc and most corner shops, food stores will probably sell them, too. Pringles can be more expensive that packets of other kinds of crisps such as Walkers brand of crisps which usually costs around 60p a packet. The reasons for Pringles being more expensive is obviously first of all because a tub of pringles has a lot more in it than a packet of Walkers normal size contains. Also though I think it is because Pringles is probably more of a posher brand, sort of thing, for example the tub looks attractive to the consumer and would make the customer more attracted to buying them, just because of the nice packaging. In Tesco I think a tub of Pringles is usually around £1.50, I don't buy them that often so it's a while since I last checked the price but I'm sure that's how much it was last time. They are probably about this price everywhere, however in smaller shops they might cost more, such as £2. I don't think these are too extortionate in price but also I have seen crisps priced a lot cheaper than this as well. Would I recommend these? Yes, I would recommend these Pringles in the flavour Texas Barbeque Sauce because I think they are simply delicious and possibly one of the tastiest snacks I have ever had in my life. I would say, though, that if you were on a diet to either share these with someone else or buy a smaller tub if you were going to eat them all yourself, because I remember watching the fat drop off these and it is seriously something I would not like to have swimming around my insides - but hopefully I haven't put you off by saying this! Anyway, overall I would say if you like the sound of these then why not give them a go. Thank you so much for reading.

                      Disadvantages

                      2/5

                      I was looking through the cupboards for something to munch on and I found a tube of these left over from Christmas, we always seem to get these in over the festive period as they're usually on some amazing special offer deal like buy one get 3 free (or something that that effect!). I popped open the tube and luckily I was able to stop very soon. Price: These are usually about £2 a tube which is pretty steep, however they usually are on some sort of offer, especially at Christmas but are usually buy one get one free the rest of the year, usually working out at about £1 a tube so not too bad as they are a good snack to share. Packaging: The packaging for Pringles is pretty well known, a long tube with a foiled lid for freshness and a sturdier plastic lid to keep in freshness once open. The colour tube for Texas BBQ flavour is aubergine, which I think is quite strange as I'd think it would be brown, and I can always previously remember the packaging for BBQ pringles being black. There's also a picture of some sort of pringles skewered kebab with pringles, tomato and onion, which I thought was pretty weird but oh well. Taste: The first taste of these I was impressed, it tasted like the sweet BBQ sauce you'd get on ribs, however as I continued to eat found that alot of the flavouring came off on my fingers meaning I had to lick them. This meant that even more of the flavour came off and so the cycle continued! I'm not sure that it was just that I just got used to the taste but alot of the pringles seem to lack the flavour which was disappointing and I soon put them down as I got bored. I was pretty glad I wasn't that impressed with these when I looked at the nutritonal information. Nutritional Information: Per 25g portion (about 15 pringles (I think)) Calories: 129kcal Fat: 9g Sat Fat: 1.7g Not very good, and doesn't really fulfil your hunger. Overall: I did like the flavour of these but I found they got boring which I was glad of because with other flavours I can munch down a fair few pringles and I didn't realise how high in fat and calories they are. The flavour was nice though and if they could continue this level of flavour throughout the tube they'd definately be on to a winner, I wouldn't even mind the nutrition!

                      A crisp that used to be one of the best????????

                      I've only just bought some of these and thought I might as well write this review, but not because of what you might be thinking. I have always been a big fan of pringles and like many others, have previously fallen into the category of "Once you pop, you just cant stop". But, and there's a but, recently I have gotten to the stage where once I pop, I can easily stop. What I mean with the above is that I have found over the last 6 months or so (mostly with the BBQ flavour) is that when you open the container, nearly every pringle has got hardly any flavour on the crisp. You get a touch of the bbq seasoning around a bit of the edges, a sprinkle on one side (maybe) and then nothing on the other side. I'm not saying that the things should be completed covered in the stuff, as that would be kind of over powering and very sickly, but what we have been getting is something that occassionaly doesn't really have any flavour. The last box I bought even had some pringles that could have passed for another flavour. Seriously, if you were to have put them next to say salt and vinegar, you would not have been able to tell the difference. Now considering the classic colour of bbq is brown, that is pretty bad. I remember when they first came out, that each pringle was pretty well coated and had a very distinct flavour, this was one of the reasons why they were so morish. Having near to no flavour for me, has certainly made them less appealing. I don't know if the lack of flavour is due to an error in manufacture, a cost saving exercise, or if I have just been incredibly unlucky to get every box that has had this problem. What I can say is that for me, pringles are no longer a must buy, and no where near as tasty as they used to be. If you agree with this, maybe leave a comment, it would be interesting to find out if I have just been really unlucky with my buys over the last year.
