I don’t think you understand how much I love these Pringles.
I’ve referred to my list of writing ideas before, the notes I add to my phone during the day of topics I can write about, ones that linger in my brain long enough to write at least a few words about. My list is quite lengthy and daunting with recipes, odes, and some really weird topics I won’t ever share, and at the very bottom is a note about the Hot Ones Pringles.
In case you missed my Hot Ones post and the very funny video that accompanies it, click HERE to read, and scroll to the bottom if you just want to see the video of us all trying the sauce called Da’Bomb, the one that makes people cry and reverse snack (credit to Cranston). It explains what Hot Ones is and how the concept works, and they’ve since branched out and expanded beyond YouTube and selling sauces, to now putting their name on other products like Pringles.
The lime flavor is full of green tang and fine salt and acts like more of an adhered coating than a sprinkle. It covers the traditionally-shaped Pringle, leaving the spicy flavor to hide underneath waiting to attack your mouth until it’s too late. It’s like a fire ant who waits until it’s time to throw up her right arm, furrow her invisible brows, and yell the command to her many friends to mukduk your pinky toe.
You don’t know the heat is even there because you are completely consumed with the delicious lime and salt, but I have found that as long as you keep on eating and don’t take breaks, the heat won’t find your tongue and gums right away, and even if it does, you just won’t care. It punishes you for your gluttony, but coaxes you to not care.
I’m sad that they will only be around for a limited time, and hope people are brave enough to try them. If not, please just buy some so they keep them on the shelves just a tad longer, and if you don’t love them or if they are too hot, let me know and I will gladly take them off your hands.
