Pringles vs. Other Chips
Chips, chips, and more chips!
Which potato chip do you prefer?
Chips in a can
I am certainly not one to put down chips. I love all chips. They are great. However, I've noticed Pringles has been advertising how great they are compared to other chips. They say this is because their chips are all the same size and less greasy. Well, I am here to take a stand! That is why other chips are better than Pringles!
I like my chips to be non-conformists. I don't want to reach in and always grab the same size chip. I want to be surprised. Pringles takes away the element of surprise. Pringles can be tasty, but also, I find they take away the fun since all their chips look identical - there's no personality! I dare say their chips are "conformist chips." Where is the fun in that?
An adventure in every bag
If you are like me, you can't wait to see what you're going to get the next time you reach into a bag of chips. Sometimes you get a chip that is folded over. Other times, you get a chip attached to another chip - double your fun! Every now and then, I want a small or broken chip. Variety is the spice of life. Therefore, I am going to go out on a limb here and say bagged chips are the best.
For any of you salt addicts out there, you know the chips at the bottom of the bag are always the best. They've been sitting in salt and grease for a long time and you know they are going to be awesome. Sure, all that grease and salt isn't good for you, but it sure is tasty.
The joy of kettle cooked chips
I hate to be picky. I am not trying to be a Pringles hater or anything. However, I need to mention that Pringles does not offer kettle cooked chips. Let's face it, kettle cooked chips rock! Not only are they tasty, they are super crunchy.
If you have a co-worker or roommate you are trying to annoy, nothing works better than crunching on kettle cooked chips. If you pick up a bag of jalapeno kettle cooked chips, you can torture that person even more. Now you're making noise while creating an offensive odor. Pringles simply can't top that.
I do have to hand it to Pringles - they do offer a wide variety of flavors. After all, who wouldn't want to chow down on some pizza flavored chips? So OK, Pringles, maybe your flavors are non-conformist even if the shape of your chips are boring.
Also, Pringles is now offering a product called XTreme Chips. Honestly, that sounds a little bit intense for chips. I wonder if my stomach could even handle extreme (oh, sorry... xtreme) flavors like Ragin' Cajun and Blastin' Buffalo Wings. I mean, these flavors have to be pretty crazy considering Pringles was forced to leave the "g" off of the words "raging" and "blasting."
Perhaps I will give Pringles another try. It seems like they would like be more open-minded and less conformist. I am still disappointed in the shapes of the chips, but maybe I can look past it. Thanks, Pringles, for at least trying to think outside the box (or outside the can).
These potatoes don't want to go to the can!
