Lay’s Debuts New Flavors Including ‘NASHVILLE HOT CHICKEN’

It’s been a minute since Lay’s dropped some new flavors on us, and with many avid snackers staying indoors these last few months any new variety is more than welcome.

The new line of Lay’s Potato Chip flavors all follow a restaurant-inspired theme. These include Carnitas Street Tacos (inspired by El Torito), Philly Cheesesteak (inspired by Geno’s Steaks), New York Style Pizza (inspired by Grimaldi’s), Chile Relleno (inspired by Cocina Azul), and Nashville Hot Chicken (inspired by Party Fowl).

Immediately after hearing the flavor list, my mind started wondering which of these flavors pair best dunked in some cold ranch dressing. Probably the hot chicken and pizza.

Those interested in checking out these new flavors will be able to find them launching at the end of July in participating grocery snack aisles. The Chile Relleno, however, will be exclusive to Walmart and 7-Eleven locations.

Pringles x Wendy’s Collab Introduces Limited-Edition BACONATOR Chips

In an unexpected move, Pringles has partnered with sassy fast food burger chain Wendy’s to create a line of limited edition chips based off of the ever-popular menu item: The Baconator.

Pringles new Baconator Chips is said to boast just that, the taste of its namesake.

For those unfamiliar, the Baconator is made with a half pound of beef, American cheese, Applewood smoked bacon, ketchup, and mayonnaise. The idea was to capture the flavors of the iconic Wendy’s sandwich while making it as accessible as reaching into your pantry.

Looking forward to getting my hands on a can and seeing if this rings true.

You can find the new flavor of Pringles now at participating retailer snack food aisles nationwide for a limited time. Wonder if Pringles plans on collaborating with other fast food brands in the near future? Would love to see a Filet-O-Fish can in the future.

Pringles Launches Limited-Edition SWEET CORN Can

One of the many staples of a proper summer barbecue is some sweet and buttery corn on the cob. While many of us may not be barbecuing outside anytime soon, that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy those flavors from the comfort of our homes.

Some needed corn comfort now arrives in the form of a Pringles can. That’s right, the newest Pringles flavor is Sweet Corn.

The chip boasts the sweet and salty flavor of fresh corn, cooked corn, and creamy butter all fused into a crispy bite. Apparently those who have already tried it say it really does taste like sweet corn on the cob — a fantastic sign for any chip that’s flavored after their namesake.

Need to cop a can or too ASAP. Freakin’ love corn.

You can pick up Pringles new Sweet Corn cans now at participating Walgreens locations nationwide while supplies last.

Grilled Cheese And Tomato Soup Lay’s Are Hitting Grocery Stores Soon

From Chicago deep dish pizza to pickle chips with ranch, Lay’s has been making a bunch of flavors that hit on nostalgia recently. Their newest iteration pays tribute to one of the classic lunchtime combo meals: Grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup.

Lay’s managed to combine the flavors of both into a single chip, adding the creamy, acidic punch of tomato soup to the buttery richness of cheese. The taste should evoke that of the classic pairing we all know and love.

Individual flavors of Lay’s Grilled Cheese and Tomato have existed in the past, but this is the first time the two have combined together.

You’ll be able to find the new flavor on grocery store shelves nationwide starting October 21. This is a limited edition release, so those wanting to snag a bag or two will want to locate them fast.

Pringles Just Released A FRIED ONION RING Flavor Nationwide

It’s been a minute since Pringles released a new flavor variation, but onion fans can peel back their layers of delight as the latest iteration of the iconic chips in a can have dropped. The newest Pringles draws inspiration from an iconic fried food: onion rings.

Each dark purple can of Fried Onion Ring Pringles boasts a stack of onion-flavored chips that are inspired by the iconic appetizer.

As far as taste goes, they’re pretty similar to Funyuns — though slightly a bit more mellow. Still, if you’re a fan of any and all things Pringles related, these are a definite must-try.

The new Fried Onion Ring flavor is available now exclusively at any 7-Eleven store nationwide, though only while supplies last.

Like their namesake, I bet these will taste fantastic dunked in a bowl of ranch.

Pringles Releasing Limited Edition Thanksgiving Flavors

Around this time last year, Pringles teased Foodbeast with Thanksgiving-flavored chips that weren’t released in stores.

The package came with eight different flavors; turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, creamed corn, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, and green bean casserole.

Some were hits and some were misses, but either way, it didn’t seem to matter since we couldn’t get our hands on them after they were all devoured by the rest of the Foodbeast team.

After Pringles’ little test run, it seems that they feel confident in releasing them to the masses, but with only three of those flavors mentioned above.

The limited Thanksgiving package will come with turkey, pumpkin pie, and stuffing, which were probably the safest flavors of the lineup.

While they still won’t be available in stores, you can grab a set for $14,99 at the online Kellogg Store, November 6, at 11:59 p.m. EST/8:59 p.m. PST.

This probably won’t replace anyone’s Thanksgiving dinner, especially since a pack costs almost as much as a real turkey, but ironically enough, this could probably make for a cute Christmas gift.
