Social media is flooded with snackers debating whether the name of the green Pringles tube has changed. But, a contentious discussion about whether the name of the green Pringles tubes, “Pringles Sour Cream & Onion,” has changed has erupted among crisp devotees on social media. The argument was triggered when a number of crisp crunchers raced to sites such as Reddit and TikTok to argue the green tube did previously have a different name.
The Pringles devotees acknowledged that they were perplexed because they couldn’t discover any internet proof of the name change. The green crisp tube is definitely labeled “Pringles Sour Cream & Onion,” and the company’s website states this in its description: “Pringles Sour Cream & Onion crisps are the perfect combination of green onion taste and savory sour cream flavors certain to satisfy even the most intense of cravings.
Setting the Record Straight
A social media user reportedly contacted Pringles to put an end to the argument, as they reacted to a Reddit post. The statement reads: “Pringles used to market a flavor variety in the UK called Sour Cream and Chive and sometimes our consumers use the name of this flavor variety when making inquiries or referring to our currently available Pringles Sour Cream and Onion flavor.”
While the debate is still ongoing to know what the flavor really is, fans have kept going back and forth about it all over the internet. But what could really set things straight is if Pringles themselves would set the record straight and come up with a recent statement and address all those concerns. Needless to say, this may be something small when we’re talking about huge companies and lots of economies to tackle too, but perhaps in time, this issue would grab the attention of the higher ups of Pringles. And maybe then, we could all get an answer of what that tasty flavor really is.
