There is nothing like a good snack. I have my favorites like Dorito’s and Cheetohs and occasionally I will dabble with other brands but I always take a critical approach to the different types of snacks and end up going back to my two favorites.
One of my previous snacks of choice used to be Pringles. How can you not like them? They have Wheat Starch and Malodextrin and Monosodium Glutamate and Disodium Phosphate. They come packed and stacked in a large can so they do not break. One can usually cost’s about a buck. Perfect snack.
However, there is a serious flaw with the Pringle chip. The design, or shape of the chip makes it perfect for stacking but it also makes for perfect fit over the tongue. I think this is genius.
However when they make the actual chip, the fine folks at Pringle add the flavoring to the wrong side of the chip. The salt, or the cheese flavor, or the pizza flavor, basically the stuff that gives the chip pizzazz is on the other side of the chip, the side that does not perfectly fit over the tongue. This makes no sense to me.
If I buy a flavored chip I want to be able to taste the flavor right from the get go. Why does Pringles put most of the salty goodness on the side of the chip that naturally fits against the roof of the mouth?
I know that Pringles does not really care about my measly opinion but if they added the flavoring to the tongue side of the chip they actually may move up from # 6 on my list of favorite snacks to # 2 or #3.
