You people eat the can?
I eat the chips and trow the can or the bag in the recycle bin.
Who cares about the package in this case. It's not a bottle of Chanel or something like that.

Pringles are IMHO mainly mediocre (because of the production process) and overpriced (because of the can packaging) chips.

You should try German fake crisps before calling Pringles mediocre =^.^=

I'm not really fond of the texture of Pringles.
They are basically pressed potato crumbs, while chips/crisps should be thinly sliced potatoes.

And I agree that Germany isn't really a front runner when it comes to crisps.
I shop on a regular base in Germany for all kind of groceries and household stuff, but never for crisps.

You people just don't get Pringles. They are all about the container, not the taste of the chips!

:qft: I have never been able to enjoy Pringles, they just don't taste like potato chips to me. They have this weird, baked but oily texture that is very off putting.

If Pringles come in a bag, they must be shaped like the bag. That's how Pringles work.
No no no, of couse they must be shaped like a Boolean cut of a circle projected on the manifold of a bag surface... I expect the corners to be the desireable parts.

PS: can anyone ask one of those math Youtubers to do an X-mas lesson on snack topology?

I, Isabeau, sitting on the couch desiring a little somethin’ somethin’ sweet, just now this instant remembered there was a bag of chocolate covered almonds in the pantry.

So they're attempting to fix the can. When are they gonna fix the chips?

For years, the iconic tall tube that houses the hyperbolic paraboloid-shaped potato chips has been at the top of a list of worst offenders when it comes to reusability. In 2017, a recycling trade group in the UK deemed the can the "number one recycling villain."

Now Kellogg's, which owns the Pringles brand, is trying out a new design made of recycled paper in three Tesco grocery stores in England, the company announced in a news release. The cans appeared on shelves on Wednesday and the test will run for six weeks, according to Kellogg's.

The company will test out two versions, one with a paper lid and one with a plastic lid. Both lids will be recyclable, according to Kellogg's.

Got to try dragonfruit with my boyfriend! That's something you usually don't see in my part of germany very often because apparently I live in a backwards villige... (It's almost a big city, but okay).
It was expensive and... it did taste fruity, sweet... but I cannot pinpoint it's taste. very... mild. I was a bit dissapointed. He tried some pomegranate and mango, which he never had before (?), he liked the mango, but not the pomegranate. I love both.
Today I got myself Tamarind to try, and I really like them! Sour and sweet, fun to eat.
Oh, and I got a small jar of Fabbri amarena-cherries, those are the ones good icecream parlors use here, and uuh, soo delicious. *_*

I find that they taste like a mix of pear and mild kiwi.

I have a dragon fruit plant at home. Pretty. 🌱
