Pringles what have you done? - Doner kebab Pringles
Updated: Jul 16
During this global pandemic, it seems as if every crisp company has decided that it is time to churn out as many new flavours as possible. When I saw this new Pringles flavour in my local supermarket I was filled with hope, as Doner kebabs are one of my favourite foods. To say it was a let down would be an understatement.
TASTE FACTOR - A well balanced lamb flavour complemented with a good amount of spice, but there was a lack of herbs, which was disappointing. Too much monosodium glutamate meant that the crisps were slightly too salty, making them taste even more unhealthy than Pringles normally do. 6/10
LONGEVITY FACTOR - Definitely the worst part of these crisps. 5 crisps in and the spice had started to go, quickly followed by the lamb flavour. From there, it was a swift decent into tastelessness as all hint of flavour left my mouth except for the overpowering saltiness from the MSG. At the 15 crisp mark, this became unpleasant and sickening, and I was to forced bin the pack. What a disappointment. 1/10
CRUNCH FACTOR - Standard, satisfying Pringles crunch. Not too soft, not too crunchy but personally I like my crisps thicker than Pringles are. 7.5/10
Would I buy them again? No. should you buy them? No. A prime example of what happens when crisps are rushed out of the lab and put on supermarket shelves before they're ready.
