Pringles Sweet Corn  2021

For those of you who thought this was gross last year, experience the grossness this year. Here’s our review from last year. (Spotted by Dan at Hy-Vee.)

  1. I’m glad (albeit, surprised) that I’m actually not the only one who thinks these sound gross. I literally wrinkled my nose, as soon as I read the name of them.

    I’m usually a big fan of most Pringles flavors (particularly the newer/unusual/LE ones)…but I will definitely pass on these.

    1. I lived in Japan for four years and they make a snack called Pretz that comes in corn flavor and it’s actually really good. It’s mildly sweet, but still tastes somewhat like a cracker. I think Pringles came out with something similar to Pretz a few years ago called Pringles Stix. I don’t know if corn would work as well in chip form, but corn Pretz in Japan are delicious!

        1. Tbf corn tortilla chips vs sweet corn flavored potato pulp. I’d imagine that they’re vastly different flavors. Now sweet corn tortilla chips on the other hand that sounds like it’d be delicious.

          1. Not to be a stickler, but any corn for human consumption *is* “sweet corn”. Feed corn, the more commonly grown corn, is dried and fed to livestock or used in creating ethanol.

  2. Firstly, I’m envious of your living in Japan for four years; I have long been fascinated by that amazing country!
    Visiting there, one day, is absolutely on my bucket list.

    Secondly, from reading the original review/post (from a year ago, IIRC), it did mention that sweet corn is popular there. I was surprised, as I had no idea. Go figure.

    1. It was amazing. I miss it all the time. I get my fix of Japanese food by going to H-mart (an Asian grocery store in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic). They also have a lot of great Japanese snacks on Amazon or Expats Express.

      1. Oh, yes, H-Mart; I forgot about them! They have one of those relatively near to me, here in Chicago. I went there, a couple of years ago, when they first opened, and purchased a boat-load of yummy snacks. I think it may be time for a repeat visit…

        1. I didn’t realize they had them as far west as Chicago. The ice cream section is also worth checking out if you haven’t. They have ice cream in a pouch that you drink through a “straw” that is so good! In Japan it’s called Coolish. They have something similar in the U.S. now by Klondike, but it’s not nearly the same. I also love these Korean crackers that look like Goldfish and they’re crispy and have flavors like Korean BBQ. They’re so satisfying.

          1. Oh, man…you have officially succeeded in convincing me that I *need* to go back there again soon!

  3. I had no idea people thought these were gross. I was addicted to them. It was like cornbread and potato chips got married.

    1. But like Tonya Harding and just about anyone, there *are* things that don’t need to be married together.

      1. They don’t NEED to be, but that didn’t stop me from eating more cans of these Pringles than I want to admit.

  4. I just tried these for the first time yesterday and I love them!! I did find mine at Hy-Vee. I need to go back for another can!

  5. While I didn’t like them, I wouldn’t call them “gross”(you can call the Lay’s Chicken & Waffles that though). While they did taste like corn, there was something “off” about the flavor. Maybe to make it “sweet” corn, they added extra sugar or something.

    Like others, I think I got my can at Hy-Vee. I think Pringles were on sale for $1 during thier Fri the 13th sale.
