IT’S CRUNCH TIME You’ve been eating Pringles all wrong… and it means you’re not getting the best flavour from your crisps.
THE saying goes, “once you pop, you can’t stop”.
But did you know you’ve been popping Pringles WRONG all these years?
Shockingly, there’s a specific way to eat Pringles if you want to get the most out of the flavour
Naturally fans of the tasty snack munch on the crisps in different ways, much like the varied consumption methods of Cadbury Creme Eggs.
Whether it’s nibbling, crunching it all-in-one or the infamous duck-lips, the moreish treats rarely disappoint.
But it turns out there’s a very specific way of eating the yummy crisps to get the most out of the flavour.
We’ve often noticed that one side of a Pringle – particularly in the more exotically flavoured varieties like Texas BBQ – appears to deliver more of a kick than the other.
And it turns out there’s a very valid – and mind-blowing – reason why.
The makers of Pringles have revealed that only ONE side of the crisps are sprinkled with flavour when they’re made.
A Pringles spokesperson told The Sun Online: “Many people think that Pringles are seasoned on both sides.
“In fact, only the top side gets a sprinkling of seasoning in the factory.
The top side of a Pringle (left) is sprinkled with seasoning, while the underside (right) is simply flavoured by other crisps within the tub
“When Pringles are stacked in their can, some of the seasoning rubs off onto the next chip – which is why they’ve always been a little uneven.”
The side that gets the flavour addition is the ‘top’ of the Pringle – the convex side, to be technical about it.
This means that to maximise your flavour hit, you should turn the crisp upside down before popping it in your mouth so that the seasoned side comes into contact with your tongue.
That said, there’s no rule-book on Pringles eating – some may prefer not to have such an intense salt and vinegar or Texas BBQ hit when chomping down on the popular snack.
