Attention all midnight snackers and junk food lovers: Pringles and Nissin Top Ramen have heard your prayers. As a way to satisfy those late-night summertime cravings, the king of all snack mashups has arrived.
Starting this July, and for a limited time only, both companies have teamed up to release chicken-flavored Top Ramen Pringles sold exclusively at your local Dollar General.
These crisps will probably send you on a trip down memory lane. Nowadays anything that reminds us of the glory days of Kim Possible and scrunchies is greatly appreciated. And when you open the carton, that salty, chicken bouillon smell sends you directly back to the days of binge eating chips (and turning them into a duck's beak) on your mother's couch.
Each chip is lightly dusted with a neon yellow powder, reminiscent of the packet that adds flavor to our favorite 99-cent noodles. But the cosmetics of the chip aren't why we are all jazzed up. It's the nostalgic flavor.
We got a first look at the product, and we all agreed that it's a delicious snack if you can't get enough of that classic Top Ramen flavor. The chips taste EXACTLY the same as a steaming bowl of the instant soup – so if you dislike Top Ramen, steer clear. But if it's the saltiness of the famous noodles that you dislike, Pringles offers you all the flavor of chicken Top Ramen with 20 percent less sodium.
While it's not too heavy on the chicken flavoring, there is just enough so that you know it's there. One editor described the chips as tasting "exactly like the chicken broth." Another merely said "yup, that's it" after learning about the collab. But we all agreed that Pringles nailed the flavor.
These special edition Pringles are going for $1.50 and are sold exclusively at your local Dollar General. Stock up now if you're as ramen-obsessed as we are.
