Turns out we’re been eating Pringles the wrong way all this time

Everything we once thought is a LIE.

First McVitie’s biscuits, now Pringles. Everything we once thought is a LIE.

We’ve only just recovered from the fact that the chocolate covered McVitie’s biscuits are actually supposed to be eaten upside down and now it turns out the same rule applies to Pringles.

But Pringles aren’t covered in chocolate. I hear you question. But did you know that only one side of the Pringle gets the flavour?

Apparently, it’s the upper side of the curve that gets the flavouring. Once all the Pringles are put in their containers the non-flavoured side gets flavoured by the one below it.

A spokesperson told The Sun:

“Many people think that Pringles are seasoned on both sides. In fact, only the top side gets a sprinkling of seasoning in the factory.

When Pringles are stacked in their can, some of the seasoning rubs off onto the next chip – which is why they’ve always been a little uneven.”

Usually, people will eat a Pringle with the curved side facing up, but this is where we’ve all been making the same mistake.

We’re losing most of the flavour because our tongue comes into contact with the non-flavoured side first. We need to turn it upside down and eat it that way.
