Here are some quick reviews of limited edition Pringles we’re too lazy to write full reviews for:

Pringles Frank's Red Hot Original

Item: Pringles Frank’s RedHot Original
Purchased Price: $1.50
Size: 5.96 oz. can
Purchased at: Walmart
Rating: 7 out of 10
Pros: Actually tastes like Frank’s RedHot Sauce. Had a strong, lip-puckering vinegar presence. Frank’s RedHot Pepper Cayenne Pepper Sauce Power listed high-up as an actual ingredient. Hot sauce flavor was not too overpowering.
Cons: Oddly uneven flavor powder distribution. Would have liked less lip-burning and more mouth-spicing. Bright red powder will stain your fingers. Vinegar may be too strong for some.

Pringles Chile y Limo?n

Item: Pringles Chile y Limón
Purchased Price: $1.50
Size: 5.96 oz. can
Purchased at: Walmart
Rating: 6 out of 10
Pros: Had a nice chile flavor, not just heat. Chile, vinegar and lime flavors played well together. The heat that was present was well-balanced.
Cons: Lime flavor was a bit too strong for my taste. Chile should have been more dominant. Ingredients are vague (“spice”, “natural flavor”). Please stop staining my fingers with bright red powder.

Pringles Salsa de Chile Habanero

Item: Pringles Salsa de Chile Habanero
Purchased Price: $1.50
Size: 5.96 oz. can
Purchased at: Walmart
Rating: 7 out of 10
Pros: Habanero heat sneaks up on you, then punches you in the back of the throat. Faint tomato/garlic flavor hits first, which is nice. Legitimately hot potato crisp.
Cons: Salsa flavor is not that pronounced. Habanero may be too hot for some. You may sweat or breathe heavily if you eat these in public. More bright red finger staining.
