Even though everything bagel-flavored products seem to be on their way out (sorry, Trader Joe’s!), Pringles just introduced new Everything Bagel Pringles. Are they too late in the game? Can a potato chip really taste like bread? Are these everything we want and more, or will they leave us craving an actual everything bagel with the works? We tasted them so you don’t have to. Let’s find out how they taste!
- Everything Bagel Pringles
I was excited to try these new Pringles when they arrived at our office. Everything bagel has been turned into a seasoning, so why couldn’t that chunky seasoning (which typically consists of whole sesame seeds and poppy seeds, along with dehydrated onion, minced garlic, and salt) be blended up into a flavor powder and applied to potato crisps? Well, even if the plan seemed plausible, Everything Bagel Pringles don’t bring much everything bagel flavor to the table. If I was blindfolded, I would guess these were salted butter-flavored Pringles. The flavor is mild and a little bit rich, but not cream-cheese rich. And you don’t get a lick of garlic, sesame, poppy seed, or onion. Even if you topped these with cream cheese and smoked salmon and loads of red onion and capers, I don’t think you’d get everything bagel.
Don’t get me wrong: Even though they don’t deliver the flavor profile that’s promised, they don’t taste bad. Like I said, they taste like salted butter-flavored Pringles. They are salty potato crisps. If someone had these at a party, I’d snack on them. But if I saw them at the grocery store, I wouldn’t buy them.
