You take a look in your snack cabinet, and two things catch your eye: crunchy, salty potato chips and steamy, slurpable instant ramen noodles. What do you do?
When you're snacking, it can sometimes be tough to pick between your favorite low-nutrition carbs. But now you won't have to, because Pringles and Nissin Top Ramen have teamed up to give you what you really want: Top Ramen Pringles.
"Pringles flavorologists worked closely with Nissin to pop the top on a classic noodle dish and bring the fan-favorite Top Ramen Chicken Flavor to life on a Pringles crisp," Pringles said in a press release. "The result -- a crisp that tastes like Nissin Top Ramen Chicken Flavor right out of the bowl."
You'll be able to find the chips for a limited time only, starting in late July, according to the release. Pick them up at your local Dollar General store, where Pringles says they will be sold exclusively for an estimated $1.50.
"Pringles flavorologists dig deep to find flavor trends and keep a pulse on new, exciting flavors people will love," Kurt Simon, Senior Director of Marketing for Pringles told Forbes. "From there, they identify the right flavor profiles to ensure each flavor tastes exactly like its inspiration – in this case Nissin Top Ramen Chicken Flavor."
Simon said that people "will love this crispy take on the classic noodle favorite," because "Pringles strives to push the limits and surprise ... fans' taste buds." But are the dollar store chips really any good? Or are they awful?
The chips have a number of good reviews -- all five tasters for Cosmopolitan said that the chips are tasty, with responses ranging from "I don't hate it" to, "If this chip were a man I would have its child."
"These are dangerously addictive, just like Top Ramen," another taster said. "It tastes like they took the actual seasoning in Top Ramen and applied it to chips, and whatever Pringles genius came up with that idea deserves all my love."
Of course, there was one common question:
tasted the top ramen-flavored pringles. they taste great but can't i make ANYTHING ramen-flavored by sprinkling a top ramen packet on it? ??— Alexis Kleinman (@alexiskleinman) July 6, 2017
But even so, most people agreed that for a sub-$2 snack, they are pretty darn good.
Now I just need to wait for Pringle-flavored ramen.
