You've been eating Pringles wrong this whole time

Not just eating, HOLDING!

By Dusty Baxter-Wright

If there's one thing we thought we were good at, it's eating (read: scoffing, devouring, stuffing, demolishing) tubes of Pringles. We could — and have — gone through multiple packs at a time and felt no guilt whatsoever.

So imagine our sheer panic when we realised we'd been eating them wrong this whole time. Oh, and you have too. WHAT IS LIFE AND WHY DO WE LIVE IT?

Like any sane person, our usual Pringle-eating techniques goes a little like this.

  1. Shove hand and wrist into tube
  2. Use thumb and forefinger to grab four chips
  3. Employ your chest (yes of course we're lying down) as a table for all four chips
  4. Place one in mouth at a time, with the curve bending upwards so it sits on your tongue
  5. Eat and repeat until the whole tube is empty

The right way to eat Pringles, yeah?

Er apparently not, after a spokesperson for Kellogg's told The Sun that they actually only season the top half of the chip, meaning for maximum flavour, the Pringle should be placed upside down on your tastebuds. We're done.

They said:


So if it's maximum taste you're after? You need to place the seasoning directly on your tongue by turning your chip over. Put the side we formerly thought was the top on your tongue, and the edges that used to caress your tongue facing upwards towards the roof of your mouth.

This changes everything.
