Never Get Your Arm Stuck in a Pringles Canister Again With This Chip Dispenser

pringles tool

Where the hell has this been all our lives. In my 24 years of eating Pringles I’ve been subjected to getting my arm stuck in the canister, breaking chips in an attempt to grab a stack and looking like a hot mess emptying the can down my gullet to ensure every crumb was consumed. So many wasted years. So many lost chips. So many regrets.

No more will we have to snack like animals thanks to the Chip Dispenser by EntreX. Created in Japan the silicon tool is easy to use, simply snap into shape and stick the Chip Dispenser into your favorite can of Pringles. The scoop-like design ensures every chip is grabbed as you pull back and behold the glorious sight before you. When you’re done nomming on your can of Pecan Pie Pringles the Chip Dispenser conveniently wraps around the canister awaiting its next use.

The product was on sale in Japan but doesn’t look like it’s available anymore. Hopefully someone can recreate this life changing tool to solve all our first world Pringles problems.

Pecan Pie Pringles Hit Shelves for the Holidays

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.
