Don't judge me, but one of my favorite things to do on Sundays is to prepare (or at least think about) my snacks for the week, LOL! It's a mini reward I look forward to when it's time for merienda. Because my tsitserya stash was running low, I dropped by Savemore and went straight to my favorite aisle. I was reaching for my usuals when I saw two unfamiliar flavors in the row for Pringles: Italian Style Black Pepper & Cheese and Sichuan Style Kung Pao Chicken.
The branding is also slightly different than the usual cans I see—these are "passport flavours." I was intrigued. I bought one of each and went home. I also wanted to know if I've just been living under a rock because I've never heard of these flavors before, and apparently, I wasn't alone:
My honest reviews of Pringles' "Passport Flavours"
Black Pepper & Cheese Pringles
The pepper flavor is strong, which for me, is a good thing. Hindi 'to nakakasawa. If I really wanted to, I could finish the entire can in one sitting. I'm not sure if I just don't have a *trained* palate, but I can't taste the cheese much. I'm not complaining, though, I'm happy with the pepper flavor alone. Of the two Pringles options, I like this one more.
Kung Pao Chicken Pringles
It tastes exactly like kung pao chicken! Like if I got this can with no label, I feel like I'd be able to guess the flavor, lol. The good news: People who can't eat or don't like spicy food can still enjoy this because there's minimal heat. The only reason why I prefer the Black Pepper & Cheese is because this sort of makes me think of ulam, which is not something I look for when I eat chips.
