If you've been on the internet in the past few days, chances are you'll have come across the mysterious Pringles ripoff "Prongles".

In case you're yet to see this marvel, images have surfaced from stores of a new brand of crisps that has "borrowed" more than a few elements from the well-known Pringles.

And while we are incredible intrigued by them – it turns out they may be a massive publicity stunt by another familiar brand.

After some online sleuthing, some online folks have noticed the devil in the detail – if you look closely at the top of the skateboard, there are the letters "CAH".

Cards Against Humanity, anyone? Someone online also looked further into the packaging, discovering the label for a company called 'The Good Crisp Company'.

When the item was bought at Target, it came up on the receipt as "CAH Card Game" - and was stocked under Toys.

If that wasn't enough, a bit of digging on the official Prongles site shows it is owned by Cards Against Humanity.

Our wild guess, and we are really putting it out there, guys – it has something to do with Cards Against Humanity?

Whatever they have up their sleeve, we will have to wait and see. After all, the site says "coming soon", so watch this space.

Cards Against Humanity sparked headlines last week after it was revealed that the company had bought land on the US-Mexico border in an effort to thwart Donald Trump's wall.
