Do you live Pringles? Many people do – to the tune of $1.5 billion in sales annually! Here in the U.S. they are a household name and boast 34 (yeah that's right) different flavors. However, that doesn't mean we have them all. One such missing flavor is Pringles Wasabi Nori. So you guessed it, that's our international snack under review.
Where do Wasabi Nori Pringles come from?
So if you can't get this chip here in the U.S., where can you buy them? Well right now you'd have to travel all the way to Japan to try this unique treat. If we love them, we will change that and offer them here in the U.S. in our international snack store. So let's take a closer look and see if it's your lucky day.
Our sample of these Japanese Pringles came in a 1.88 oz can. It's mini in comparison to what we are used to, but it's not quite single serving size. Of course, Mr. Pringle adorns the green can, as does what must be a wasabi plant and a chip on top of a piece of seaweed. Oh yeah, there is also a mountain in the background. If it wasn't for the Japanese text and this bold flavor concoction you may think these are the American counterpart.
What do Wasabi Nori Pringles taste like?
Well, they do taste like Pringles. The crunch is familiar, although once we opened the can we realized the shape is different. These Japanese chips are clearly rounder. The wasabi is muted. I personally was hoping for a zesty pop but other tasters said they enjoyed this amount of flavor. The nori, it was muted too. Both flavors were very subtle but I was thankful the seaweed wasn't overpowering. Overall we all enjoyed them. But did we love Pringles Wasabi Nori?
Not really. However, we think they would be an excellent seller and they are good enough for our picky taste testers to munch on. So, hopefully in the near future you will be able to buy Japanese Pringles here at World of Snacks and have them shipped from our U.S. based store to anywhere in the world! Until then, be sure to check out all our great Japanese Snacks.
