Those of us who have been wishing and hoping for a new kind of healthy snack to celebrate the holidays will be disappointed to learn that Pringles has recently unveiled plans for three distinctly festive flavors.
Seriously, do we need anymore new flavors of potato chips?!!!
Beginning in November, Pringles will debut Pumpkin Pie Spice, White Chocolate Peppermint and Cinnamon & Sugar potato chips.
So many other retailers like Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts are always coming out with seasonal items each year, it appears that the chip maker decided to enter the fray in hopes of getting a piece of the growing holiday snack market.
However, Pringles and its new parent company, Kellogg Inc, may be in for a rude wake-up call with these three new flavors as early reviews of the holiday-themed crisps have been far from glowing.
People who sampled the salty-sweet offerings described them as ranging from not revolting to ‘horrible abomination to humanity.’
It appears that the least offensive flavor of the bunch is the Pumpkin Pie Spice, which reminded chip aficionados at the Huffington Post of breath mints mixed in with potatoes, making for a tolerable gastronomic experience.

See Mr. Divabetic’s nutrition game, Serve, Taste or Trash! You must decide which one you’d serve, which one you’d taste and which one you’d trash.
Before you decide to “trash” a veggie for good, why not try to eat it raw? Raw veggies can be more appetizing than their cooked counterparts to people who aren’t crazy about vegetables. The flavors of raw veggies can be milder than those of cooked ones.
