Yesterday I saw a new Pringles flavor for sale and naturally I picked up a can. Multi Grain Pringles. I also noticed new Super Stack can designs for familiar flavors like BBQ, Cheddar, Sour Cream & Onion, and Pizza. Sadly, the seal on the new cans contains the 100 crisps in ever can boast. The Multi Grain label contains the phrase “truly original.” I’m not sure what this means, for multi grain products aren’t exactly an original idea and I don’t think the original Pringles crisps were multi grain.
This afternoon I made burritos for lunch and used the Multi Grain Pringles as a companion crisp. The color and texture of the Multi Grain crisps is unlike other Pringles flavors. Each crisp is speckled with different colors and the surface is quite rough.
The flavor of this crisp is more complex than Original Pringles. Initially the salty flavor and potato element come through, but that is quickly followed by the other grains. The aftertaste is similar to that of a corn chip.
I doubt I would eat these often by themselves, though they do make reasonably good companion crisps. I suspect they would go well with salsa or some sort of dip. In my Pringles ratings I gave them a B- (8.7, 8.6, 11). You can see my complete rankings here.
