Try it Tuesday......Pringles Restaurant Cravers

Wal-mart is the only store to sell these limited edition flavors of Pringles. The Pringles website makes no mention of these flavors. They also fail to mention anything about my favorite Honey Mustard flavor. Wal-mart is also the only place that sells the limited edition Honey Mustard.

I hear there are these flavors of the Restaurant Cravers:

Cheesy Fries
Onion Blossom
Mexican Layered Dip
Slow Cooked BBQ
Mozzarella Sticks with Marinara

There could be more flavors, but since they don't advertise them on the Pringles site, I really wouldn't know until I actually see them on the shelves.

My photo above shows that my family tried the Onion Blossom and the Mexican Layered Dip. Not shown is the Cheesy Fries. We tried those, but the can came up missing when I went to take a photo of it. Macie tends to sneak food to her room, so I bet I would find it in her mini snack station if I looked hard enough. Her snack station is the outside edges of her bunk bed inbetween the mattress and the wood! I'm always finding wrappers, cups, boxes of crackers etc. For such a skinny person, that girl can EAT!

Anyway, here is what I think of the new Pringles flavors:

Onion Blossom: I liked these. They are a bit spicy because the horseradish flavor. It seems to be prominent. I love dipping deep fried onions in horseradish dip at restaurants. Mmm. So this one is something I'd buy again.

Mexican Layered Dip: Not a big fan. Too much jalapeno flavor. It's ok, but I doubt I'd buy them again. Especially since they are still in the cupboard mostly full. I guess everyone in the household feels the same as I do.

Cheesy Fries: These are good. Cheesy, but not too cheesy. I don't taste much else. They kind of taste like a plain old cheese chip to me, but I'd buy them again. My kids said they taste some potato-ey flavor that resembles french fries, but I didn't really taste that. Then again, they are a potato chip! Duh.

All of these new chips really have to be taste tested by you instead of taking my word for it. I tried to eat them at separate times so that the flavors didn't run together. I tried them in the morning so I could get a fresh perspective before I ate anything else. But I still think you will have to be the judge. I can't wait to try the other flavors offered, but my local store only had the 3 above.

Wanna know what flavor I think they should have made? Creamy Spinach dip! Mmm. That would be a good restaurant flavor. I could eat a bowl of that dip myself. Making it into a chip would be something I'd drive across town to buy from Wally World. Yum, yum, yummo!

Seen in an Ad: Pumpkin Spice flavored Hershey Kisses! Target is the only store exclusively selling them. I don't like pumpkin flavored anything, so that will be something someone else can review for me. Last year Target had the Candy Corn flavored Hershey Kisses, but I don't think I ever got around to trying them. Maybe I'll look for them again this year.

And speaking of fall and Halloween....While rummaging in the basement, I found Brycen's old Bee costume. It's soooo soft and cute! Another Target find. I think I'll put Miss Ava in it this year since she looooves The Bee Movie. At only 15 months old, she can sit thru probably half of it. Yes, I am a bad Mama letting her watch t.v. She loves it tho! She only watches it when Brycen does since he likes it too. I think she will make a cute little buzzing bee for Halloween. It will be her first year to actually do any trick-or-treating. Fun!

P.S.....I forgot to publish my blogoverary post, so if you feel like scrolling, there is a little blurp just below this post on September 15th. My blog has turned 1! Weeeeee!

They sound pretty yummy- too bad I detest going to Walmart! Our isn't a SuperWalmart so they have limited food variety anyway.

Nikki said...

Oh, I think the bee costume will be oh so cute on Eva. Can't wait to see the picture! :)

Gretta said...

Yum! I love Pringles. I wouldn't mind trying most of those flavors. The problem I have is if they are yummy I would eat the whole can in one sitting. So I try not to by them too often kind of like Oreos.

Rachel said...

I ventured to Target to try these pumpkin kisses (even though I'm not a huge pumpkin fan, either) and found the last bag!

They're not that great. In fact, they're a little strange. The texture is different -- they melt VERY quickly. Lily's the only one in our household who likes them, so needless to say the bag is still in the cabinet a month later. :)

Hope you guys are well! Say hi to Brycen for me (if he even remembers me. Wah!)

Leanne said...

Yeah, I thought the pumpkin might be a little icky. I don't like pumpkin anyway, so I doubt I would buy them.

Yes! Brycen remembers you Rachel! He perked up when I told him that you said Hi. :) Thanks for commenting!

Why is it that Michigan gets things so far in advance than California? I saw the Hershey Kisses this year but not last year. The Extreme Pringles were available over the summer but I have not seem them recently. No restaurant flavored ones to be found. Funny that in California with so many different people from all walks of life you can't find new interesting things to try. We get stuff last!

Well Michelle...If I remember right...there is only like ONE Wal-mart in San Diego right? So you would have to find the cravers there since they are exclusively found at Wally World. And don't complain since atleast you have places like Trader Joes, PF Changs, The Cheesecake Factory and In & Out burger!!!!!!
