Nov 8, 2018Pringles releases three Thanksgiving-themed potato crisp flavors
Pringles debuted a line of Thanksgiving-themed crisps last year, and this year, the company packaged them together in a Thanksgiving dinner collection.
The limited-edition flavors and table cloth-look packaging include Turkey, Stuffing and Pumpkin Pie, all in one can. They’re also available in mini cans.
“We knew that we had to get Pringles Thanksgiving flavors in more people’s hands this year,” said Yuvraj Arora, senior vice president of marketing for Kellogg’s U.S. Snacks division.
Pringles’ Thanksgiving Dinner were only sold through the Kellogg’s website. USA Today reported they sold out in 41 minutes once becoming available at 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6.
Stemming from a 2008 taxation lawsuit in the United Kingdom, it was revealed that potatoes make up 42 percent of Pringles ingredients. Then-owner Proctor & Gamble argued Pringles were not potato crisps and shouldn’t be subject to certain taxes. A British judge disagreed and P&G was ordered to pay tens of millions in taxes.
The Kellogg Company purchased Pringles from Proctor & Gamble in 2015.
