Uhhhhh… Pringles?

by John on March 12, 2010 · 8 comments

I know the Asian food market is a little differnet than ours, but seriously?  Seaweed?  Soft-shell crab?  Come on.

Pretty interesting for a company that intended to sell tennis balls but got a shipment of potatoes instead.

Yea, meant that as more of a tribute. Not trying to rip off classic Mitch Hedberg.

If you know that the Asian palette doesn’t consist of salt & vinegar, cheddar cheese and ranch, how are these such a stretch?

I’ve never seen an Asian chip brand like Calbee make the aforementioned flavors and with good reason, but they do make tomato flavored chip.

I dunno about you, but softshell crab?! That’s not even in season. I’d pay double for a delicacy like that in chip form. DELICIOUS!

I was in England about 8 years ago and “Prawn” was one of the top Pringles flavor, it was quite tasty.
