These Thanksgiving Dinner Pringles Actually Do Taste Like Thanksgiving

first_imgStay on target Japan Has Special Takoyaki-Flavored Pringles, And They Sound DeliciousNow You Can Eat Pringles Flavored Like Your Favorite Ramen Noodles We all love Pringles, right? Even if you don’t eat them often, once you do you probably find it hard to stop plowing through the stack. They come in so many flavors, like Top Ramen, cheeseburger, pizza, pickles, you name it. There’s a flavor to fit every taste. But what would you say if you could try an entire Thanksgiving dinner comprised entirely of flavored Pringles? Would you give it a whirl?That’s exactly what I did, with the limited-edition Pringles Thanksgiving Dinner set. Pringles is bringing eight Thanksgiving-themed flavors out as part of a test run, including flavors like Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Stuffing, Cranberry Sauce, Creamed Corn, Green Bean Casserole, Mac & Cheese and Pumpkin Pie. Basically all of your typical family Thanksgiving favorites, except for the chicken and dumplings you have at your house if you’re me (thanks, Mom!).I had a chance to be one of the first lucky few to try out this special pack of Pringles, which comes packaged in a special container with a slot for each flavor. It’s a cute little setup that makes it feel a little more festive, but you only get a few of each Pringle flavor in each slot. I knew I had to make each taste count so I could bring you an unbiased look at exactly how each one tasted, so without further ado, here’s how each flavor stacked up.AdChoices广告Turkey: Easily one of my favorites of the bunch. It had a nice, pleasant roasted turkey flavor that blended well with the potato chip. It was one of the most “natural” flavors that made sense with the chip itself, since I’ve had “meat” flavored chips before. I would probably eat a few of these on a regular basis.Mashed Potatoes: This ended up being my absolute favorite flavor out of the set, probably because it was not only flavored like mashed potatoes, but being that it’s made out of actual potatoes, the flavoring made the most sense. It had an extra dimension or “pop” of flavor like buttered, whipped mashed potatoes with a hint of sour cream, perhaps, to thicken them. Absolutely delicious!Stuffing: Yes, this really tasted like stuffing, down to the Stove Top aftertaste. I tried the “Leftover Sandwich” combination suggested by Pringles with the Turkey, Stuffing, and Mashed Potatoes flavors and it was a real winner. All three of these flavors were the high points of the package for me, for sure.Creamed Corn: I did not enjoy this one. That’s not to say it didn’t taste like creamed corn. It did, but it had an unbearable sweetness to it that I found totally unpalatable, paired with the strong corn flavor. Gross.Green Bean Casserole: This ended up being my least favorite flavor out of the lot, which is strange because I really love green bean casserole. It didn’t really taste like the dish, but it did have an unpleasant aftertaste that I couldn’t wait to wash down with the next Pringles flavor. It was somehow worse than the cloyingly sweet taste of the Creamed Corn.Mac & Cheese: A thousand thumbs up, yes! This had an amazingly creamy taste, just like eating a big spoonful of macaroni and cheese. While it wasn’t as delicious as the Mashed Potatoes flavor, I still loved every bite of this flavor, and it had me craving some real pasta.Cranberry Sauce: I don’t typically go for cranberry sauce during the holidays, but this one did taste just like it. I don’t really like the sugary sweet dustings with the regular potato chip, but despite the fact that I didn’t like it much, it was spot on.Pumpkin Pie: Another sweet flavor that, while I didn’t like it personally, it did taste unmistakably like pumpkin pie, right down to the nutmeg and whipped cream. It would have been better on something that didn’t have a potato base, but still a great and authentic flavor.Overall, if I had to score the Thanksgiving Pringles, I would have given this set an 8/10 as far as real flavor goes. These chips had some sort of crazy magical spell cast on them that somehow really made them taste just like their real-life counterparts. I could see myself eating some of them again, but probably not on a regular basis. Still, I say, Pringles did a fabulous job of capturing the holiday.center_img Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more
