Pringles Pop into Fall with Surprising Seasonal Flavors
Move over Stove Top Thanksgiving Dinner Pants—there’s a new turkey-day novelty in town. Pringles recently announced the release of three limited-time fall flavors: turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. In this press release, Pringles notes the “insanely accurate” taste of the flavors. To further reflect the holiday tie-in, the chips come packaged together in mini cans designed to mimic the look of canned goods.
While these flavors might not be ones you would typically grab off the grocery shelf, they have captured customer curiosity. You can imagine the fun of bringing a pack to Thanksgiving dinner for a taste test. Alas, getting your hands on the chips at this point may prove difficult. Pringles quickly sold out of the limited number available in the Kellogg’s Store for $15, creating an upcharged secondary market. The coveted cans are currently selling on eBay for $100+ in many cases.
While it remains to be seen if stuffing and pumpkin pie Pringles will have staying power, even on a seasonal basis, what we are learning is that people are hungry for more unique fall and Thanksgiving-themed marketing and flavors.
