Hungry, but don’t want to leave campus? Afraid to try weird flavors like Pizza, Honey Mustard, or Cheeseburger as a chip? Well here you are, these my go-to flavors of Pringles you can find at the C-Store.
4. Salt & Vinegar
This flavor is one that almost everyone I know enjoys. Personally, I love salt & vinegar chips, but these just don’t pack the punch. There is definitely not enough vinegar to make me absolutely love these chips, but I wouldn’t say I don’t like them.
They’re decent for when you can’t find the zestiness you’re looking for in the C-Store, or for when you don’t have enough time to leave campus and get yourself a bag of your favorite brand of salt & vinegar chips. Compared to the rest of the Pringles I ranked, these were lacking in flavor.
3. XTRA Screamin’ Dill Pickle
Some people don’t like the taste of dill, which makes me want to ask: what’s wrong with you? But these chips aren’t what you’d expect from their title. Compared to other brands, these have a more subtle taste. The dill isn’t so extreme that it reminds you of the taste of vinegar, rather, it’s just right.
2. French Onion Dip
First time I tried these chips from the C-Store I had my heart set on buying the next flavor on my list, but instead I picked these up completely on accident. Later when I was in my room preparing to study, I realized they weren’t what I wanted.
After being angry with myself for a couple minutes, I realized how enjoyable this flavor is. It reminds me of the home made french onion dip my mom used to make the family for house parties, so maybe the nostalgia factor biases my opinion a little bit.
1. Chile Con Queso
Ever eaten at a high class Mexican restaurant? Well Pringles will give you the sense of eating at one. It’s spicy and cheesy, tasting like a delicious Mexican restaurant’s fresh queso cheese dripped all over crispy chips with minced chile peppers.
Although they’re tasty, they are so spicy that they can make your nose run. This flavor compliments a lightly citrus-flavored drink very well and washes the spicy away very quickly. I’m not a huge fan of Mexican food, but I could easily eat these all in one sitting.
