    Honestly? They're not really a garbage snack. Would you present them to your loved ones willy-nilly? Yeah nah, but if you're on a road trip with said loved one and you bust out a tube midway into a boring drive, you become worth your weight in gold.

    I would guess that the FDA definition of a potato chip would include a slice of potato and Pringles or other stacked chips can't deliver, because it's made of potato powder.

    They used to say "potato chips made from dried potatoes." I think they changed it to "crisps" some time in the 1990s. It wasn't long after I read about this in Consumer Reports or Penny Power/Zillions explaining that they have to say one or the other because potato "chips" are legally required to be slices of potato.

    My only problem with Pringles is that they charge a premium for it here. It's potatoes. I get it, they're the best, thinnest ones, but they're still potatoes and shouldn't cost so much.

    3:44 - That's obviously an automated (bot) answer. It would appear that you don't get an answer to your Pringles questions due to the fact that the company has been taken over by an unsophisticated AI program that, though it did not have the qualifications for the job, nevertheless excised all human employees of the company and replaced them with an army of bio-machinery (don't let those who were excised go to waste - and at least they didn't choose to start adding soylent to the recipe). TLDR: Pringles is being run by a collection of robots and an Artificial Intelligence. Send contact information to receive uninstall instruction for the 5G chip now located in your appendix.

    4:44 chips are basically produce that’s been fried or baked until crispy. Pringles are basically dehydrated mashed potatoes and flower, that has been molded then fried. Pringles are not chips for the same reason Bugles aren’t. I get the confusion for you though, all chips are crisps, all crisps, just don’t fit into what the U.S. considers a chip. In more concerned about what he witnessed over what he looks like (and the fact that they aren’t chips), considering those tubes have been used for more DIY pocket pussies than any other packaging in the world!

    Fun fact I’m a dentist and taste is mainly genetic with slight alteration from development over life and mutations. And people in Europe have a palette (on average) that prefers less salt, and people in North America prefer salty foods on average. So the food is favoured by American audiences more than any other region. Also fun fact the common American palette usually dislikes the flavour of Turkish delight.

    Hey, man- I pay for NOnet premium so I don't have to watch ads or pay the price by seeing your face! 🤣 Fun fact- totally random but this video reminded me of how I made a Talking Steve Urkel piggy Bank for my 2nd Grade Invention Convention (1992) using a Pringles can, a tape recorder and terrible impressions of me being Steve Urkel. I legit pressed play on the tape recorder everytime I put a quarter in the lid and I even won a trophy . In hindsight we all won but it was still fun.

    I can't think about, let alone see Pringles without remembering Mitch Hedberg... " I think Pringles was going to originally sell tennis balls, but the day they were supposed to show up they got a truck load of potatoes instead. They were such a laid back company they said, "fuck it, cut'em up.""

    Fun fact the reason why they are not chips is because They are made by basically taking those flakes in dried mash potatoes and making it into a chip shape. As this process uses less oil, pringles are on average healthier than chips

    My favorite thing about pringles is that their shape is a pretty complex/ specific mathematical thing, a... hyperboloid iirc? Bending down in the sides and up on the ends is pretty hard to replicate, as evidenced by the fact that none of the knockoff brands ever seem to actually manage it.
