Advantages Strong flavour, lower in fat than 'normal' Pringles
Disadvantages Have an odd taste.
At the weekend I had round for dinner a couple of old school friends. Kate and Clare were two of my closest friends at school and over the last twelve years we haven't seen each other on more than a handful of occasions. I cooked a simple meal and baked a cake but I knew nibbles while we watched a film were a must so i bought some Maltesers and a tube of Sour Cream and onion Pringles. It seems Kate had a similar idea and brought a box of chocolates and a tube of the new Rice Infusion Pringles in Salt and vinegar flavour.During the film the chocolates Kate brought with her got polished off and the Pringles didn't get opened. My other half and I have happily picked at them ever since! We both love Pringles, they seem different to crisps and are classed as a treat item so feel even more special.
The Rice Infusion tubes are slightly nicer in their design and to me look prettier but let's face it these are aimed at women more than men so that is why they have made the packaging more appealing in this way.At the moment in Asda the 'normal' Pringles are on offer for 71p for a 155g tube and the Rice Infusions are far more expensive at £1.43 for a 160g tube.
These are lower in fat than the 'normal' Pringles and are made with rice flour.The Rice Infusion crisps are slightly thinner and the difference is noticeable. They have far less crunch to them than the 'normal' Pringles do and they suffer in my eyes for that fact.
They have a very strong salt and vinegar taste, to the point where the skin on the inside of your mouth feels rather dehydrated after eating just a few of them. They would make an ideal bar snack as they really would make customers buy more drinks! They induce a thirst after just a couple of crisps.They do taste nice but you know how if you buy chips from a Chinese takeaway they taste slightly different? Well the same applies to these, they have a slight twang to them which makes them just taste a little wrong.
100g of these contains 487 calories, 100g of 'normal' sour cream and onion contains 531calories.
100g of these contains 24g of fat, 100g of 'normal' sour cream and onion contains 35g of fat.
The difference is noticeable but not huge. If you were to only have these as a treat and not eat too many I don't think the low fat option would be my choice, the compromise on flavour is not worth taking.
