Can’t get enough of Thanksgiving dinner? Pringles may have the meal for you.
The company released a limited-time Thanksgiving dinner chip kit, which comes with eight different flavors of chips that are meant to mimic the turkey day dinner, according to a press release from Kellogg’s.
The flavors include: turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, creamed corn, green bean casserole, mac and cheese and pumpkin pie for dessert.
Pringles Thanksgiving Dinner's box resembles a TV dinner. The company said it could make a good snack during Thanksgiving Day’s football games, or even a replace for the “real feast.”
"Pringles are known for bold flavors and endless flavor stacking possibilities, so this holiday season we wanted to introduce snack-lovers to a new way to enjoy Thanksgiving favorites," Kurt Simon, senior director of marketing for Pringles, said in a statement. "The Pringles Thanksgiving Dinner flavors, are not only new but cover every course of the real meal – from the main event, to sides and even dessert."
The company also unveiled different combinations of these chips for other meals, like eating turkey, stuffing and mashed potato chips for “The Leftover Sandwich” or eating the cranberry, pumpkin pie and mashed potatoes for “The Holiday Sweater.”
Bad news for shoppers, though: the chip it won’t be available in just any retail stores. The company said it will have limited availability as it undergoes a “pilot taste test.”
Mashable’s Brian Koerber was less enthused about the new chip-meal.
“Though weird chip flavors are nothing new, we can at least appreciate Pringles' refreshing take on the classic dinner with creative packaging,” he wrote. “We're still bummed it won’t be easy to get.”
But Food & Wine writer Mike Pomranz had a chance to try the chips, saying the experimental flavors were “hit or miss.”
He wrote in his review that mashed potato-flavored chips were “a gimme, seeing as these are potato chips.” Green bean casserole was also a welcomed new flavor. But cream corn didn’t translate well into a chip, he wrote.
“Overall, give Pringles credit for creating a fun novelty,” he wrote. “No, all the flavors weren’t perfect, but for a product like this, the discussion and debate is almost entirely the point. No offense to anyone who planned on having Pringles Thanksgiving Dinner as their actual holiday meal.”
