Karaage Fried Chicken
We never thought that being a flavor developer for a major snack food brand would be boring, but seeing the flavors of Pringles available in Japan has us officially convinced that it's actually the most fascinating job out there. Somebody, somewhere, held up a can of mushroom soup and said, "I'm going to make a curvy chip out of this." Then they went to brunch, and while chewing their eggs Benedict, they thought, "This would be even better in crispy potato form." Then on a trip to the grocery store, they pointed at a bottle of mayonnaise and declared, "I'm gonna Pringle that sh*t." And — at least for Japanese foodies — this heroic, definitely made-up Pringles employee made it happen.
We get some wacky potato chip flavors in the States, but Japanese Pringles have every other junk food beat in terms of creativity and outlandishness. From chicken nugget to mayonnaise, we've rounded up some of the wildest Pringles flavors that you can only find in Japan — and even then, it might be hard to get your hands on a tube of your favorite!
