Taste test: It took us no time flat after opening this can of Wal-Mart's knockoff of Pringles to begin questioning the "Great Value" brand name. The obvious problem was that there were no potato crisps near the top — the pile of crisps started a full 2 inches down from the opening.
Say what you will about Pringles, but we've reviewed about 100 different kinds and we've never seen anything like this. Even in cases where some of the Pringles near the top are broken, a half-inch gap might be typical, but never a 2-inch gap. The top crisps were only slightly broken in this case, so there were no signs of extraordinary settling — they just skimped on the number of crisps.
As for the crisps that they did choose to include, they didn't look as good as Pringles. The shapes weren't as consistent as we've come to expect from Pringles, and generally they were less curvy and didn't look as nice. The taste was still fairly similar to Pringles, but most of our tasters thought these weren't as good. The shortfall in the number of crisps provided was unexpected and very disappointing.
