Walgreens Is Selling Hot Dog Flavored Pringles For Some Reason

“Try ’em,” the cardboard shelves on this Pringles display whisper to passing shoppers. The display promotes a new Walgreens-exclusive, limited-edition flavor: “Hot Diggity Dog,” which tastes like hot dogs. Probably. Maybe just salt that tastes like beef and mustard.

Very few of you have probably jumped up from your desk to rush to the nearest Walgreens to pick these up, which is understandable. It sounds more edible than white chocolate potato crisps, but the season is wrong. Aren’t hot dogs a summer food?

The dominant flavors to capture the essence of hot dog would be salt, mustard, and catsup for a persecuted minority of Consumerist editors. There could be pickles or relish in there, which they could just borrow from the pickle-flavored Pringles that actually exist.

In an almost completely unrelated piece of information, you can make a handy solar hot dog cooker out of a Pringles can.
