Pringles are known for coming in their trademark tube which is packed with stackable crisps. Their curved shape and uniform design makes them different from most of the other crisps on the market.

But now the firm behind the iconic snack has made a major announcement - and it is a step away from the Pringles we known and which "once you pop you can't stop". For the firm has said it is making a whole new version of the savoury treat - and it will neither be flat or in a tube.

Kellanova which manufactures Pringles is preparing to launch "Pringles Mingles". And in a move away from their traditional form these will be puffed crisps - and they will come in a bag.

The firm describes the new snack as "a puffy, irresistibly delicious and shareable snacking experience unlike one you've ever had from Pringles." Announcing the move it said: "Pringles are already out-of-this-world delicious, but now they're out-of-the-can and into the bag for a whole new way to enjoy the iconic crisps."

It added: "New Pringles Mingles are crispy on the outside and light and airy on the inside for a melt-in-your-mouth tasting experience. Each bite-size puff mingles two mouthwatering Pringles flavours for a delectable palate adventure and boasts a bowtie-style shape inspired by Mr. P's signature look."

The new lineup will be available first in the USA in October with fans of the brand hoping it will then come to the UK. It comes in three flavours:

  • Cheddar & Sour Cream: Hints of buttery cheddar cheese seamlessly blend with creamy, tangy sour cream notes to create a harmonious savoury and zesty flavour combination that will leave fans craving more.

  • Sharp White Cheddar & Ranch: Sharp, aged white cheddar cheese flavour meets zippy buttermilk and herb ranch notes, creating the perfect balance of cheesiness and tanginess in every munchable bite.

  • Dill Pickle & Ranch: Zesty dill pickle mingles with buttermilk and herbaceous ranch notes for a tantalising and craveable flavor experience.

Mauricio Jenkins, US marketing lead for Pringles said: "Our iconic Pringles can is part of our identity — and it's not going anywhere — but we're always looking for new ways to innovate and satisfy our fans' latest cravings. This puffy, airy snack not only gives fans a new way to experience Pringles, but its easy-to-share packaging creates a new way to enjoy their favorite snack with friends and family, whether munching at home for movie night, at a party or on-the-go."

Alerting people to the new product UK Snack Attack said on Facebook: "YES you saw this correctly! The beautiful product designers at Pringles have decided they are bored of stackable crisps…. So they made puffed crisps!⁣"

It added: "As you can tell these are very US focused flavours, hopefully they do well and then soon we shall see salt and vinegar mingles!"
