    Honestly? They're not really a garbage snack. Would you present them to your loved ones willy-nilly? Yeah nah, but if you're on a road trip with said loved one and you bust out a tube midway into a boring drive, you become worth your weight in gold.

    I would guess that the FDA definition of a potato chip would include a slice of potato and Pringles or other stacked chips can't deliver, because it's made of potato powder.

    They used to say "potato chips made from dried potatoes." I think they changed it to "crisps" some time in the 1990s. It wasn't long after I read about this in Consumer Reports or Penny Power/Zillions explaining that they have to say one or the other because potato "chips" are legally required to be slices of potato.

    My only problem with Pringles is that they charge a premium for it here. It's potatoes. I get it, they're the best, thinnest ones, but they're still potatoes and shouldn't cost so much.

      ​@Hallo The tall ones go for around 14 to 18 BRL, the Brazilian Real, even going as high as 20 when the dollar is way up. That's steep for a 120g snack. If you google them you'll see prices at 10 and 12 BRL, but with shipping that amounts to the same as buying them at the store. We're used to these prices. That's why there's quite a lot of competitors, none of them come close to the same standard though. The original is always gonna be the best, so I wish they'd find a way to lower those prices. The length of this reply shows how much I want some pringles right now.

    3:44 - That's obviously an automated (bot) answer. It would appear that you don't get an answer to your Pringles questions due to the fact that the company has been taken over by an unsophisticated AI program that, though it did not have the qualifications for the job, nevertheless excised all human employees of the company and replaced them with an army of bio-machinery (don't let those who were excised go to waste - and at least they didn't choose to start adding soylent to the recipe). TLDR: Pringles is being run by a collection of robots and an Artificial Intelligence. Send contact information to receive uninstall instruction for the 5G chip now located in your appendix.

    4:44 chips are basically produce that’s been fried or baked until crispy. Pringles are basically dehydrated mashed potatoes and flower, that has been molded then fried. Pringles are not chips for the same reason Bugles aren’t. I get the confusion for you though, all chips are crisps, all crisps, just don’t fit into what the U.S. considers a chip. In more concerned about what he witnessed over what he looks like (and the fact that they aren’t chips), considering those tubes have been used for more DIY pocket pussies than any other packaging in the world!

    Fun fact I’m a dentist and taste is mainly genetic with slight alteration from development over life and mutations. And people in Europe have a palette (on average) that prefers less salt, and people in North America prefer salty foods on average. So the food is favoured by American audiences more than any other region. Also fun fact the common American palette usually dislikes the flavour of Turkish delight.

I legit pressed play on the tape recorder everytime I put a quarter in the lid and I even won a trophy . In hindsight we all won but it was still fun.

    Fun fact the reason why they are not chips is because They are made by basically taking those flakes in dried mash potatoes and making it into a chip shape. As this process uses less oil, pringles are on average healthier than chips
