When I told my mother I was doing a Pringle wrap, she immediately asked me how I was going to interpret knitwear wrapping paper . She was, of course, referring to Pringle of Scotland who have been making wonderful knitwear since 1815, including by appointment to the Queen and the Queen Mother. I do love Pringle, especially the argyle knits, but today 3 April, it’s all about a different sort of Pringle. I am talking about the Pringle stackable snack chip originally marketed as “Pringles Newfangled Potato Chips” sold in more than 140 countries.
I am finding it hard to discern just how many flavours of Pringles there are – as the flavours change from time to time and from country to country. One source quoted 110 differnt flavours. Don’t know about Cinnamon Sweet Potato, New York Street Cheese Dog, Screamin’ Dill Pickle or Wild Consomme, but then my tastes always were quite conservative and don’t run much past Salt & Vinegar.
Flavours aside, it is the Pringles cylinder – regular and small size – that I am interested in because it forms a fabulous casing for gifts. Pop in hand made cookies, sweets, candles or other precious items concealed in tissue paper.
