Pringles has released a trio of Thanksgiving-themed flavors so now you don’t have to spend so much time cooking a roast turkey.
Thanksgiving is full of unmistakable flavors: the slightly burned outer skin of mom’s roast turkey, the gooey and garlicky bonanza of the stuffing, to the sweet and slightly tangy taste of canned cranberry sauce.
And because Pringles has apparently got an entire lab department with nothing better to do, they decided to distill those flavors and put it on a chip. This is what happens when you’ve got bored scientists.
Last year, Pringles released an octet of flavors in chip form to replace the entire Thanksgiving meal, everything from Green Bean Casserole and Creamed Corn to Stuffing and Pumpkin Pie. This year, Pringles is re-releasing three of those flavors that were “favorites from last year’s lineup.”
Whereas last year the eight flavors came in a box cleverly shaped like a microwave dinner, this year it’s just a tall box that’s the same size as a regular Pringles can. But inside that box are three smaller cans made to look like a can of beans, corn, or cranberry sauce. Only, Pringles picked flavors that would never come in a can.

The three flavors are Turkey, Stuffing, and Pumpkin Pie. What’s truly wild is how they came about these flavors: the Turkey flavor is entirely artificial, while Stuffing contains both artificial and natural flavors. Pumpkin Pie is naturally flavored "with other natural flavors,” whatever the heck that means.
"When we launched Pringles Thanksgiving Dinner last year, it was so exciting to see Pringles fans' positive reactions celebrating how insanely accurate the flavors were," said Yuvraj Arora, senior vice president of marketing for Kellogg's U.S. Snacks division. "We knew that we had to get Pringles Thanksgiving flavors in more people's hands this year—particularly hearing that Turkey, Stuffing and Pumpkin Pie not only were delicious, but truly tasted like the real deal."
Pringles calls their flavors “insanely accurate”. We haven’t had the chance to try them yet, but you can get your hands on a tall box for $14.99 at Kellogg’s online store.
Or maybe not. The Pringles press release said that supplies are limited and handed out on a first come, first serve basis, but the link seems to be down. They might already be sold out. The only thing to do is keep hitting that refresh button until actual Thanksgiving when Pringles stops selling them.
