All Hail Pringles

All self-stacking food-based products trace their origins to delicious original Pringles. Before Procter and Gamble blessed us with a 42% potato meal ensconced in tubular packaging, greasy broken potato chips plagued lunch boxes throughout high school cafeterias across the world. Clever mechanical engineers teamed with creative nutritional scientists to build the perfect saddle-shaped salty snack. Delve into the shocking and amazing world of Pringles with us.

Each of us fondly recalls our first edible encounter with Pringles. From picnics in the Poconos to after-prom parties in Poughkeepsie, our nutritional lives were forever altered during that memorable initial crunch. General intuition told us that saddle-shaped potato contrivances dovetailed into a long tall cardboard container represented the next great leap in mankind's search for snacking. Hardly anyone spit them out in disgust.

Innovation drives nutrition in the modern world. Just dropping a few baby carrots into a plastic bag inspires no desire to eat. Keen-eyed shoppers push shopping carts past Lays and Frito's in search of any of the numerous flavors of Pringles. Look not to boring raw potatoes cursed with irregular shapes and blotchy colors: depend on Pringles for consistent snacking each time you pop open the vacuum-sealed canister.

Masters of the culinary arts integrate this amazing food into wide varieties of meals. No presentation suffers when enhanced with pizza flavored Pringles. Observers of the Food Network will observe Pringles in the background of virtually every prime-time episode. Popular wisdom aside, the food universe doesn't revolve around caviar and Gatorade. Question not the wisdom of famous chefs who appear often on network television morning news magazines: your family wlll love you more when served Lobster Thermidor with Pringles crumbles.

Rally 'round the can. Stop serving blandly boring baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, and french fried potatoes. Thoroughly impress your dinner guests with innovative dishes built around Bacon Ranch or Extreme Smokin' Hot Ranch or Multi-Grain Creamy Ranch flavors. Underneath all the natural and artificial flavors, it's still a Pringle. Virtually every menu might be improved through the strategic application of Pringles.

Xtreme varities of Pringles include (Extreme) Blazin' Buffalo Wing, (Extreme) Torchin' Tamale, (Extreme) Family Faves Cheddar BBQ, and, of course, (Extreme) Family Faves Taco night. Your family, extreme or not, will gladly make a meal of any flavors you happen to find in the larder. Zeugmatic artifices aside, nothing satisfies quite like the encyclopedic nutritional crunch of a Pringle.

      @drbj : eBay is second only to Wikipedia in this area.
