What is it?
Pringles in seven layers – Refried Beans, Sour Cream, Salsa, Guacamole, Cheese, Black Olives, and Chives.
How is it?
These chips are poppable. In fact, these chips might very well be unstoppable!
Right from the jump, Pringles nails it. The smell of Mexican spice and tacos resonates from the tennis ball tube the second you pop the lid.
When it comes to chips that are supposed to mimic multiple flavors, I usually find that one is always more prominent than the other. Here, Pringles had to juggle seven, and I give them major props for doing it so admirably.
While I do think the cheese and an overall “taco-style spice” are most noticeable, I was able to convince myself I was tasting every layer.
With a little concentration, I got the guac, slightly spicy salsa, sour cream and onion, and even the black olive flavor. These do taste like your standard summer 7 Layer Dip. I literally had some the day before eating these chips, and I’m impressed.
Is there anything else I need to know?
I don’t have much to nitpick here, but I will say that I would really like to try this flavor dust on a Doritos-type of tortilla chip. They remind me of the classic Doritos Taco flavor except on a potato chip, which knocks them down a tad. That being said, I think this flavor is better suited for a Pringles potato “crisp” than a standard Lay’s potato “chip.”
This is a solid Pringles flavor. I’d recommend it wholeheartedly, but feel I should at least mention the fact they’re slightly spicier than I expected. The salsa element here may be a step up from “mild,” so know that going in. The aftertaste will trick you into thinking you just had a delicious Mexican dinner.
