Bacon Ranch Pringles

I'm filing this purchase under "things you buy at a truck stop in the middle of Missouri when you are hungry but too lazy to stand in line at the Subway next door to get a sandwich."

Bacon Ranch Pringles sounded heavenly at the time. But they were actually kind of disappointing.

Don't get me wrong - I'm the type of person who can inhale an entire can of Pringles in under 10 minutes. I looooove the salty taste of a classic Pringles chip. And the Bacon Ranch Pringles tasted just as good as any other flavor of Pringles. But they just don't taste bacony. When you breath the chip in before you insert it into your mouth, you get a slight hint of smokiness. But after that there really isn't a smoky taste. It just tastes like ranch dressing on a salty Pringles chip.

So Bacon Ranch Pringles weren't unpleasant, but they just weren't what I expected. I probably should have just sucked it up and gone to Subway.

add this! + stumbleupon this + this is + digg this


  • Pringles has not yet mastered Bacon Flavor Technology. Their "Loaded Baked Potato" flavor, which is also supposed to contain a bacon component, fails in a similar fashion; apparently their Mad Scientists can not distinguish between "smoke" and "bacon" flavors.

  • That is so sad that they were not awesome. I saw the photo and was salivating. I am crestfallen it didn't work out.
