Pringles Texas BBQ Sauce
Advantages: Very tasty crisp snack
Disadvantages: Too addictive, very unhealthy
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).
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
Summary: Very addictive, crisp snack, full of flavour and freshness
