This Year, Why Not Try the Thanksgiving Dinner That’s Made Entirely From Pringles?

Everyone loves Pringles. They’re tasty, and, importantly, one of the only brands of potato snacks that don’t sell you a bag full of air with a few crushed chips thrown in for good measure.

If you’re a big enough fan of Pringles, you might have considered them as a fun addition to your Thanksgiving Day celebrations – a few tubs might be just what you need to make sure your drunk uncle’s mouth it full so he can’t ruin the family meal by insulting your sister with backhanded compliments.

But hey, why bother with the full Thanksgiving meal at all? Turkey takes forever to cook, whereas the brand new Pringles Thanksgiving Dinner set doesn’t require any cooking at all, and are full of delicious potato goodness.

The box comes with eight different flavors of Pringles, all of which are based on classic Thanksgiving foods.

There are the obvious inclusions – turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce, but also some less obvious choices, including creamed corn, pumpkin pie, and mash potato. Rounding up the selection is mac ‘n’ cheese and green bean casserole, which are admittedly not the most fantastic part of the box’s offerings.

All in all, it looks like the Pringles Thanksgiving offering is probably only going to be suited to hardcore chip fans, and may not be a good fit for something to keep around just to entertain guests.

Besides, the box set isn’t exactly huge, so you’re not getting anywhere near a full tub of chips. Instead, you get three of each flavor chip, meaning that this isn’t something that you can pass back and forth the dinner table as an appetizer for long before all the chips will disappear.

Maybe the best solution is to skip the family meal altogether, and just hide in your room eating chips.

Heck, that’s long since been the best way to get through Thanksgiving for plenty of people!
