Maybe this means that the sriracha trend is finally over? Nah, probably not. And we’re glad for it. Sriracha-flavored Pringles are now a thing, and are available exclusively at Walmart.
The good news is that the chips have actual hot sauce on them. Well, hot sauce powder. Here’s the tail end of the official ingredients list:
Contains 2% Or Less of Salt, Sugar, Sodium Diacetate, Rice Flour, Garlic Powder, Dextrose, Monosodium Glutamate, Hot Sauce (Red Peppers, Vinegar, Salt, Garlic), Citric Acid, Natural And Artificial Flavor, Chili Pepper, Disodium Inosinate, Disodium Guanylate, Malic Acid, Apple Cider Vinegar, Paprika Extract (Color), Red 40 Lake.
Hmm. Maybe I’ll just take some regular Pringles and lightly coat them in sriracha. Emphasis on the “lightly.”
All of these sriracha-flavored chips (well, the Pringles and Lay’s) give me flashbacks to the fateful day in 2000 when I mistook my college roommate’s jar of the sauce for salsa, scooped a generous portion onto a tortilla chip, and popped the whole thing in my mouth. I still miss those taste buds.
