It’s like they knew we needed some extra comfort in our comfort food.
If you love the salt-and-sweet combo of Southern-style chicken and waffles drizzled with maple syrup, you’re going to love the new flavor of Pringles currently being spotted around the country.
Pringles recently came out with limited-edition Chicken & Waffles chips. These are currently being sold only at Dollar General stores, according to the Instagrammer @candyhunting, who posted a picture of the cans. They cost about $1.50 per container.
A few reviewers who have spotted and tried these Pringles already said the new chip was heavier on chicken than maple syrup flavor. Instagram user Carb Connoissuer rated them 7/10 for flavor, and fellow Insta user Michael Webb wanted to know if the flavor counted as breakfast food even if it was in chip form. (It’d certainly be easier to eat in bed than an actual plate of chicken and waffles!)
Instagram user @i_need_a_snack_ raved about the maple syrup-infused, waffle-forward profile of the chips.
“Now the taste is right up there with the smell! I get the waffle and syrup right off the back and that seems to take the lead, although both flavors do mix together,” I Need A Snack shared. “Then at the end of the chip you’re greeted with that salty seasoned chicken flavor.”
The Southern specialty and brunch favorite might seem like an unlikely taste to add to your potato chip, but Pringles often offers unusual, limited edition chip flavors, like Mac & Cheese in summer 2019 and Ramen in 2017. Many of these short-term flavors are released exclusively to Dollar General.
The artist who worked on several fun Pringles package designs, including Chicken & Waffles, shared a lineup of his can designs, which also included unusual flavors like a Reuben Pringles and Fried Onion Rings Pringles.
Chips featuring chicken flavors are popping up lately. In January, Pringles suggested stacking a new rotisserie chicken-flavored Pringles chip with Pringles The Original and Pringles Jalapeño to make a spicy chicken Pringles “sandwich.” And Lay’s re-released its own Chicken and Waffles chip in April.
