Pecan Pie Pringles Hit Shelves for the Holidays

pringles-pecan-pie.jpg

Remember the crime that was Pringles Pumpkin Pie Spice, White Chocolate Peppermint and Cinnamon & Sugar? Apart from tasting like toothpaste and spoiled sweeteners, the holiday flavors were a far cry from delectable. However, the head honchos over at Pringles Corporate aren’t going to quit that easily and recently debuted their newest seasonal flavor: Pecan Pie Pringles.

Spotted by an Impulsive Buy reader at a Dollar General store, the new chips have garnered an expected slew of whatthef*ckery.

However, unlike it’s brethren (which received a ubiquitous NO from the masses), the Pecan Pie-flavored Pringles have also received a surprising amount of positive fanfare. As Junk Food Guy writes:

Imagine a shortbread pie crust without much sugar…that’s what this tasted like! …The nutty and sweet syrup-y flavors mixed back in, and to be honest, these Pecan Pie Pringles tasted like I was eating the crust of a pecan pie, toward the edges! …The molasses flavor really complemented the nutty flavor well, and left a tiny sweet tinge on my lips… I liked these.  A LOT.  They trump all three of last year’s fall Pringles flavors, hands down.

And a fair amount of the internet seems to agree.

Our verdict? There’s hope, and hope is always a good thing. For those really looking to step things up, we suggest stuffing an actual pecan pie with Pecan Pie Pringles, then sprinkling the top with the little chippies at the bottom of the canister. Hey, the apocalypse is already coming, we might as well.

Today I Learned: You Can Transform Crisco Into An Emergency Candle

DIY-Crisco-Candle

When it comes to zombie apocalypses, the guy behind Crisco knew what was up. While many of us instinctively go for the baseball bat or duct tape when we think “Essentials for a Zombie Takeover,” few realize that in the event of an apocalypse, electricity will become a rarity, if not a thing of the past.

Cue in Crisco — a tub of shortening that also happens to be a gigantic candle in disguise. Simply take a tub of Crisco, drill a hole down the middle using a chopstick, insert a piece of string, and light that baby up. The DIY candle will burn for 8 hours a day, for 45 days. 

Bottomline: In case of zombie apocalypse, grab Crisco.

JELL-O Offers Pudding Sacrifice in Hopes to Stop Mayan Doomsday [VIDEO]

According to Jell-O, the gods are ending the world because of the Mayan’s boring offerings of root crops. (That has to be offensive to someone, somewhere.)

Jell-O has constructed a plan to offer its pudding snacks to the gods in hopes that it will be enough to prevent this Friday’s predicted apocalypse.

In the commercial, a group of men are shown climbing up what looks to be the Kukulkan Pyramid of Chichen Itza with a box full of Jell-O chocolate pudding snacks to offer the gods of the Maya.

Note: I’m not sure if the gods will appreciate that the Aztec calendar is portrayed in the commercial and not the Mayan calendar at 0:08 seconds.

Surely, if we live to see December, 22, Jell-O will take the credit for it and plan some kind of weird Jell-O party hosted by Bill Cosby.

Will the gods be happy with the sacrifice, or has Jell-O pissed them off even more? I guess we’ll find out.

No #Food on Instagram?! Must Be the Apocalypse

Part genius move by Internet Explorer, part Instagram foodie jab, the above play is all around spot on. So, if you notice a lack of artsy closeups of carne asada fries or Starbucks lattes in Sutro among your stream of Instagram photos — you know what’s coming. We just hope you’ve already stocked up on the last remaining Twinkies and pimped out your Doomsday shelter with reruns of South Park. If Instagram is still running after 12.21.12, you’ll at least be able to show off your prepackaged swag to fellow apocalypse survivors.
