Cinnamon & Sugar Pringles!

A little while back we heard word that Pringles was going to release some dessert flavored chips for the holidays. Saw a picture a few weeks back too, but still didn't believe it was true. In fact, I'm pretty sure I accused that first pic of being Photoshopped. Well, ladies & gents, I'm happy to say I was wrong. Pringles have once again proved that they are constantly looking to try something new, and step their game up to the next level.
Alas, of the three dessert flavors, we have so far only been able to get our grubby hands on these...
Limited edition Pringles: Cinnamon & Sugar!

Irwin liked the looks of these ones...

If you've had one Pringle, you've probably got an idea of what a new flavor of Pringles is going to taste like. We all know different flavors of Pringles just rely on a different flavor of colored dust shot onto the chip. Some are a great snack, others fall short. But we always give Pringles props for constantly tossing new flavors out there. These are the most tame of their proposed dessert flavors, the other two are Pumpkin Pie Spice & White Chocolate Peppermint. I figured we'd be getting the standard Pringle chip with a powerful blast of cinnamon sugar powder on them. Well...I was right about one part...

Down the rabbit hole...
 The plain Pringle chip flavor is VERY apparent when eating these. Also? Salt. So let's review...these have lots of pulpy potato flavor, salt...oh yeah and a whisper of cinnamon and sugar. This is where the problem lies with these. They should have been extremely dusted with cinnamon sugar, especially if they were using the usual amount of salt on a plain Pringle. But they didn't at all. It's a slight dusting on about half of one side of the chip. They taste best if you look for it and lay the sweet part directly onto your tongue before you chomp them up, otherwise the sweetness of them is lost between the salt and potato tastes.

Not enough sweet dust!
These should have been the chip version of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, just spilling grains of cinnamon sugar all over you while eating them. I should have to take a vacuum to my shirt after eating some of these because I've dumped so much cinnamon sugar on me. But alas, this is not the case. My only hope is that the upcoming Pumpkin Pie Spice and White Chocolate Peppermint Pringles will pick up the slack where these fall short. The upside is that Pringles are cheap, so even if you aren't sold on our review and pick up a tube of them, you're not out that much cash.

I give Cinnamon Sugar Pringles a C-. They aren't terrible, but they aren't too much different from plain Pringles.
