People stunned after realising Pringles only have flavour on one side

People stunned after realising Pringles only have flavour on one side

This means there's basically a 'correct' way to eat them

Big crisp news coming in today, as people are just discovering that Pringles are only seasoned on one side.

Yep, it may come as a surprise to learn that the delicious, stackable snacks are actually only coated in flavour on one side - which basically means there’s a correct way round to shove them in your gob.

In a post on TikTok, @cookinhungry explained: “Do you know there’s a correct way to eat Pringles? Most of us eat Pringles like this, we put the curved part on our mouth and just eat it like that, right?”

He then flips over the crisp and adds: “You’re actually supposed to it like this and the reason is most of the seasoning on Pringles are on the top.

“If you rub a Pringle, you can actually feel all the seasoning on this side.”

And you don’t have to just take the word of some random bloke off TikTok, either.

Pringles’ parent company Kelloggs confirmed that the crisps are only sprinkled with seasoning on one side.

A spokesperson told the Metro: “Many people think that Pringles are seasoned on both sides.

“In fact, only the top side gets a sprinkling of seasoning in the factory.

“When Pringles are stacked in their can, some of the seasoning rubs off onto the next chip – which is why they’ve always been a little uneven.”

So the man in the clip is correct when he suggests that the ‘right’ way to eat a Pringle - at least if you want maximum flavour - is to put the seasoned-side on your tongue.

Earlier this year, Pringles fans were left scratching their heads amid claims that the flavour of the crisps in the green-coloured tube had changed.

Debate raged on social media about whether Pringles Sour Cream & Onion was a replacement for Pringles Sour Cream & Chive.

But it seems to be a case of the Mandela Effect, with folks admitting that they couldn’t find any evidence of the name-change online.

Taking to Reddit, one crisp muncher wrote: "None of my friends believe the flavour was ever called Sour cream and Chive.

"It's now called Sour Cream and Onion Pringles.

"I thought I could easily disprove it by doing a Google image search but nothing...now it's 3am and I look like a confused fool. I'm starting to doubt myself."

And the Pringles fan wasn't alone either, with another snacker taking to TikTok, questioning: "Am I going insane or did these used to be called 'Sour Cream and Chive'?”

According to Pringles' official website, the green tube of the crisp is definitely called: Pringles Sour Cream & Onion.
