Mint?

Really?

envy <-- my face after eating it.

Ewww, no? Really???

I bought the white choc and cinnamon tubes under false pretenses as they had pictures of stick shaped items on them... I thought it was a whole new product. The choccy ones were unbelievably vile - a sickly sweet crisp... And worse, after almost gagging on how gross it was when the flavor faded it tasted just like a ready salted Pringles and the damn addictive pringlishness makes you reach for another, tears of self loathing in your eyes...

I saw these weirdo Pringles in Colchester Sainsbos the other week and had begun to think I'd imagined them 'cos I've not seen them anywhere else since. Doesn't sound like I'm missing anything ......

You pull an envious face after eating it? That seems odd.

Writerwannabe83 Tue 10-Dec-13 20:34:32

They sound absolutely VILE!!!

Colchester, i might have to go the 20 miles to hunt these down as an experiment.

Ummm...I guess envious of everyone who hasn't experience this yet? fconfused

I couldn't bring myself to try them as they sounded gross but it's good to have it confirmed. I was starting to think "maybe they'll be nice - they've obviously passed taste tests..." But now I will ignore my curiosity and avoid avoid avoid!

My husband bought a tube a little while ago. I had to try one. A week later I tried another one. Then they went in the bin.

Love Pringles, but have never heard of these ones! Mint Pringles? Really?! I had a face like this confused when I read this!
Sound bizarre to say the least! grin

Pringles are disgusting.

It is a little-known fact that they are made by Eastern European EU migrants chewing the remnants from the discarded packets of regular crisps such as Walkers and spitting them at high velocity against a heated steel wall.

The best spitters get a 25p per 100 bonus.

Then midgets scrape them off using a long-handled spade.

Their factory is windowless but they are allowed out for exercise every other Sunday. They don't need heating because where they come from it snows a lot.

But they have a really good work ethic which makes them much less moany than British people.

If they really behave themselves they get to work here where 'extra mozzarella' might have an interesting interpretation grin

YANBU. We bought the mint chocolate ones thinking they'd be like those chocolate covered thins from years ago. Instead it was just ordinary looking Pringles with toothpaste-flavoured dust liberally sprinkled on one side. As soon as it touched my mouth I spat it out. It was fucking vile. I think it must be some kind of sick joke at Pringles HQ, like who could come up with the most disgusting flavour combination.

W have some for Christmas for a laugh! I have cinnamon and mint/choc flavour (they are in most sains and tesc) they might be horrendous but they will be a bit of fun (I also have toffee apple popcorn and ikea Swedish Christmas drink)

They. Sound. Delicious. heathens

Bleurgh

I am technically an Eastern European EU migrant.

Pringles are my ethnic food.

Oh yeah.

ZombiePenguin After I posted I thought someone might think I was a mad xenophobe and was going to post a disclaimer.

But I decided not to because that would have made me look even madder.

Glad you took it as a black joke.

You did, didn't you? Cos that's how it was meant.

SuperStrength Tue 10-Dec-13 22:27:25

they are made from potato peelings discarded from chip factories...yuck

ZombiePenguin Tue 10-Dec-13 22:44:58

grin limited DH (if he knew about you) would be quite annoyed as I've told him that if he ever eats a Pringle (bar the mint ones) he's clearly a xenophobic bastard, preventing me from connecting with my cultural heritage. I know how it was meant!

Misspixietrix Tue 10-Dec-13 22:51:29

Toothpaste flavoured dust! grin. YDNBU. They both sound vile.

I haven't tried them but I'm in Colchester so may have to check Sainsbury's grin

The only ones I like are the EXTREME jalapeno and cheese ones

CatOfTheDay Tue 10-Dec-13 23:12:16

I can't find them anywhere, I've looked in two big Tescos and Morrisons sad

Selks Tue 10-Dec-13 23:25:34

They belong in the bin marked 'rank food that should never be sold' along with the chocolate Philadelphia and the cheese and onion crisp chocolate bars. A whole world of wrongness IMO.

MamaMumra Tue 10-Dec-13 23:31:00

They can't be as bad as the disgusting cinnamon flavored ones. envy that's green with nausea btw. <vomit emoticon>
