I actually never got the big appeal of Pringles, especially when there are so many chips made out of potatoes, instead of potato flakes and flour, as Pringles are. I much prefer the taste of 'real' chips. I wouldn't say pringles are DISGUSTING, like I'd still take them if you offered me them, but they taste kind of weird and bleh, when you think about it...

Does anyone here actually prefer Pringles to other chips?

THE MAKING OF PRINGLES POTATO CHIPS - FACTS AND HISTORIES OF EVERYDAY THINGS THAT ROBROB8 THINKS YOU SHOULD KNOW

I almost never buy Pringles, but reading about the leftover fries from McDonald's makes them even less appealing.

Come to think I rarely buy any chips anymore - I do like them - but I guess I don't think about it as much. That can only be a good thing!

Do you really believe everything that you read on the internet?

Pringles are made of dehydrated potatoes, sourced from Idaho, combined with wheat and rice flour. They are formed into a dough, cut into a parabolic shape and fried. They are produced in Jackson, TN by Procter and Gamble.

They were developed in the late 60's at the P&G labs in Cincinnati.

Either way, I don't find Pringles that appetizing anymore.

I don't buy Pringles. Actually I very seldom buy chips...
I love naan, taboon or khubz bread with the dips. Or just plain veggies like carrots or celery.

If I am going to waste calories eating potato chips, it has to be a REAL potato chip to make it worth it. Good's Potato Chips (Eastern Pennsylvania) are worth it. They are fried in lard and they leave your hands nice and greasy, and an oil slick on your tongue.

I saw the first Pringles being made in the pilot plant at the WHTC in Cincinnati. Big secret at the time. As soon as they started storage testing,I had a supply swiped from the constant temperature rooms there. Could not get enough of them.

They also tested various darkness of cooking. That was interesting, but eventiually they got it right.

As for real potato chips I prefer regular "lays". I'm trying hard not to eat chips because of their high salt content. I do like corn chips however, like Tostitos or the store brand we get is great too at almost half the price.

Gotta fess up, I like them, even the lite ones (which seem harder to find lately). I also like the Lays ones that come in a tube, actually they're a tad thicker and better for dipping, they dont come in lite though but are convenient to take while traveling but actually both brands in the cans break too - and these days Im trying to stay away from them because of their high sodium content, lite or non-lite, flavored, plain or lite.
