American “street” PringlesJuly 28, 2009
The East Coast vs West Coast rivalry finally spills over into the snack world:
I’ve never been to LA, so I can’t comment on whether or not they actually sell BBQ chicken wrappen in a tortilla that you are supposed to eat while walking. Do these taste like BBQ chicken? Kind of. It tastes like sweet BBQ sauce, and like the standard BBQ flavor you can get back in America only, again, sweeter. There wasn’t anything tasting like chicken here, which is pretty par for the course for Pringles. They’ve never had a chicken-themed flavor that tasted like actualy chicken.
And in this corner…
I’m not sure if that is some kind of typo or if the street in question here belongs to the people of New Yorker. Either way, when I think “New York”, cheese dogs certainly aren’t the first thing that come to mind, and I don’t know how qualified they are to represent New York, but none of that matters, I suppose.
Again, the first thing I thought of is that these taste initially like BBQ sauce, althought it’s a very weak and subtle version. When compared to the the BBQ Chicken chips, these do taste kind of “cheesy” in comparison, but not so much when tasted by themselves. They don’t come off as really cheesy, but they do have kind of a smoked flavor that is more similar in taste to a hot dog than the chicken ones were to BBQ chicken.
So, in terms of being accurate, the Cheese Dog ones are better, and I have to admit that I like them better than the chicken ones when it comes to just tasting good as well. Here’s hoping nobody gets shot over this review.
