Pringles in crazy flavors

I obviously was in Christmas rush when this news came out in mid-December, but P&G has released Pringles in BAGS. The Pringles minis, which come in normal flavors - original, sour cream & onion, cheddar cheese - YAWN! - fail to excite me. (I don't pack kids' lunches, though they'd make sense for that reason). But I am a little more excited about Pringles Selects, packed in a bag (revolutionary!), which come in four flavors: parmesan garlic, sundried tomatao, Szechuan barbecue and cinnamon sweet potato (!!!). They haven't jumped out at me in the grocery aisles, but maybe I'm not looking hard enough. Saw a coupon for them in this Sunday's Enquirer, which made me think more about them. (For those of you who think Pringles aren't real potato chips - I'm sorry. My uncle was on the original R&D team, so I was chowing down on Pringles samples well before they hit store shelves. I was young, I was impressionable...) Of course, barbecue is not exactly a hallmark of Sichuanese (Szechuan) cooking - mouth-numbing hot pepper is - but I'll reserve judgment till after I've tried them. If they're spicy, we'll be in business.

We bought the Sechwan BBQ flavor and the Cinnamon this past weekend at Jungle Jim's. The Cinnamon were so good that the wife and I agreed not to tell the kids about them and eat them all ourselves... The BBQ chips are OK with a definate hint of asain flavor.

The Sweet Potato/Cinnamon are VERY good! I love them and so does my 2 year old son!

Yum. I'm grabbing my coupon and heading to Kroger tonight! After cinnamon toast for breakfast (and being a big fan of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, the most unhealthy cereal that's my periodic splurge), I'm thinking cinnamon sweet potato! Thanks!

The sundried tomato ones are excellent. My only complaints: (1) They're about one-third the size of regular Pringles and (2) the scarily long ingredient list, which includes MSG. Oh well...

I brought the sundried tomato potato Selects into the office, and they were a big hit. Not quite as much as the Snyder's hot buffalo wings pretzel pieces, though. http://www.snydersofhanover.com/en/products.php?cat=2
I kept the Selects cinnamon sweet potato at home for myself. I like 'em, but they seem not quite fatty enough (OK, they taste healthy), and leave a little sweet potato flavor in your mouth that everyone might not love.
