Click pic to view comments Confirmed sighting: Pringles Dippers
Posted: 14:31 Wed 11-02-2004. Price: 1.38. Location: Tesco Muswell Hill, London. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"David C" reports: These come in a normal sized tube, but have only 170g instead of the usual 200g. They are a slightly flatter shape in the middle, but curved with grooves at both sides, to make them better for dipping. They were on the shelves where the normal original Pringles usually are so they may have replaced them altogether (though they might just have been out of stock on the normal ones). They were priced 10p more than other flavours. The packet colour scheme is rather similar to the old Ridged Pringles. They taste slightly thinner than normal.

...A nicely detailed sighting here from first-time spotter "David C" - in other savoury sensations, I'm once again duty-bound to draw your attention to McSweeney's New Food Reviews, currently holding forth on the topics of Taralli Italian Golden Rings (like "a breadstick... with red pepper"), Candy-Coated Cocoa-Covered Sunflower Kernels ("they resemble sad, deformed little M and Ms"), and their unmissable assessment of America's #1 Ostrich-based Sports Nutrition Meat Stick Ostrim ("it also makes a superb replacement fan belt for an '87 Volvo").

Comment: Just tried the Hint of Pepper flavour- not bad, I found them more addictive than the standard variety.

Comment: According to another website, Pringles Dippers are available in the following flavors:

Pringles Dippers Original / Pinch of Pepper / Hint of Sour Cream & Onion

Besides these crisps, there will also be 300g jars with dip:

Mild Salsa Heaven / Hot Fiery Salsa / Sour Cream & Chive / Cool Curry

I don't know if these are potato crisps or corn crisps like Torengo-pringles (Original / Splash of Salsa / Pinch of Pepperjack Cheese -- check link) or Doritos.

Comment: They taste like normal pringles with a different shape. Tesco's has them.

Comment: I beg to differ as regards the tube colour scheme. There are marked differences between the sharp font used for the word "Dippers" and the rather soft one used for wording of the old Ridged Pringles. Not to mention the ultramarine colouration of the Ridged Pringles tube which is in distinct contrast to the royal blue of the new Dippers.

Hope that's cleared up the differences!

Comment: Can anyone tell me where I can get hold of a Pringle 'picnic box' remember the little pringle shaped boxes that you can put a few pringles in for snack time? I REALLY need to find some. Preferably red. Can U help?

Comment: most Tesco's still have a display box of the boxes lurking on their shelves. In either glitter or glow-in-the-dark only these days though. The red ones were limited to the first edition only back in 1997.
