Taste test: Pringles were the pioneer in the world of snacks made from potatoes, shaped like potato chips, that aren't actually potato chips.
In recent years, there have been imitators, but Pringles still remaines virtually synonymous with "uniformly shaped potato snacks that come in a can." There's a certain blandness to Pringles vs. real potato chips, but I have to admit that even the original flavor is surprisingly tasty and mysteriously addictive. If I buy one of the large cans of them, it seems I keep eating more and more of them until the can's about half full. In this can, many of the chips near the top had some small breaks along their long edges, but for the most part, the chips were unbroken.
