Pringles Has Made A Giant Tube As Tall As A Person

Pringles has made a massive tube of crisps as big as a person.

To celebrate 11 November, which the Japanese arm of the company has dubbed 'Pringles Day', the firm created a batch of cans that are 161cm long.

According to Pringles, the length was chosen as it matched the height of Fuwa-chan, the celebrity spokesperson for the potato chip giant in Japan.

In a tweet, the company explained the stunt and offered fans the chance to have one modelled on their height, too.


Translated, it read: "11 November is Pringles Day!?


"So I made Fuwa-chan life-sized Pringles. On this occasion, 11 people will be given a life-sized Pringles by lottery.

"Way to participate: Impressions of eating the delicious and renewed Pringles. Tag [life-sized Pringles] + [my height]. Tweet!"

A reporter at Sora News 24 in Japan was sent one of the enormous tubes to test out, and it looks mighty impressive.

Hopefully these bad boys will be available at some point in the future for crisp lovers in the UK.


But with them only making 11 for fans to get their hands on, it's unlikely that they will be coming our way anytime soon. We've contacted the UK branch of Pringles to ask if it's a possibility.

What you can certainly get hold of, however, is a Pringles advent calendar.

B&M is selling the festive calendars, which contain 12 pots of Pringles - one for each day of Christmas - split evenly among four flavours: original, salt and vinegar, sour cream and onion, and BBQ.


They're on sale for £7.99 ($10.50), which is more pennies per Pringle compared to just buying a big tube, but then again, advent calendars have never really been about value, have they?

They're not really about being healthy either. Come to think of it, I'm not really sure what they're about at all.

If you don't have a sweet tooth or a savoury tooth, but rather a booze tooth, then there is also an advent calendar for you.

Yes, BrewDog has launched a craft beer advent calendar, so you can have beer for breakfast. The calendar is comprised of 24 beers, including 15 brand new beers launched in 2020, as well as six online exclusives and two beers that you can only get your hands on in the advent calendar.
