Review of Pringles Original Snack

I had to pop into a local supermarket for a few late night snacks. On doing so I discovered one of my favourite crisps were in offer but were sold out. I was a tad disappointed and then suddenly developed a craving for ready salted Pringles. I had to ask the staff to find them for me. Now I don’t normally go for this kind of savoury treat but I thought what the heck every now and then …. Now these Pringles come in a big red tube with a plastic lid with a little foil seal underneath to enter the tube. The tube weighs a 190g , a 30g serving contains 155 calories, 9.8g of fat, 0.5g of sugar and 0.41g of salt.
Each Pringle is cream in colour and slightly salty in appearance. On picking a Pringle up I got a little salt on my fingers but not much with no greasy residual noted. On biting into a Pringle a nice crunch was noted and there was a subtle but not overpowering taste of salt noted. They don’t taste or have a consistency like a typical crisp and I have personally found this difficult to describe. To be fair they are not described as a crisp but a savoury snack. The packaging states that they are suitable for both vegetarians and vegans. The ingredients reveal that they are milk free and therefore suitable for my dairy and lactose free diet. The only allergen highlighted in bold is wheat. Personally, I found the ingredients labelling disappointing as the allergens were not listed separately, I found it difficult to see that the wheat was in a bold print. So back to the snack itself, did I enjoy them ? Well, I try not to personally eat what I call junk food, but I found these to be very moorish. The advert is true once you pop it is difficult to stop. I liked the crunchiness of this snack, the flavouring was spot on for me with just a hint if salt flavouring noted. Finally, I liked that although they high in calories I didn’t get greasy fingers as with other crisps I have previously tried. So if you follow a dairy and lactose free diet like me or are vegetarian or vegan and fancy an occasional naughty savoury snack why not give these a try.

    Oh wow I had no idea how much of a crisp aficionado you were. Have you tried Aldi’s Teddy Faces? They’re like Pom Bear but vegan, dairy free, etc. And a lot cheaper. They’re my lunchtime potato snack of choice.

      Sadly, no Aldi near where me but if I pass one I must stock up. Thanks for the top tip as I love Pom Bears ?. I am trying more crisps now so that I can review them on my blog and share my new finds. I have learnt so much in the past year from other blogs and Twitter about new things to try and hope that I can try and do the same.

          Mine is granola bars, closely followed by crisps.

    I would have a hard time eating Pringles with all the artificial ingredients in them! Plus, like you said, once you open them, it is hard to stop. 🙂

      Indeed, but I think they are ok for an occasional treat.
