Scorchin' Sour Cream and Onion Pringles

Could this be a case of "Ask and ye shall receive"? 

A little while ago we did a taste test with the original three Scorchin' flavors: Scorchin' Cheddar, Scorchin' Chili Lime, and Scorchin' BBQ. At the end of it, I was wishing that they would have made a Scorchin' version of my favorite flavor, the Sour Cream & Onion Pringles. 

Luckily for me, we've recently had Theresa's sister visit from Michigan and she brought me a tube!

These Scorchin' Sour Cream & Onion Pringles can only be tested against my favorite chip. Which one will reign supreme? 
Mr Pringles, aka Julius Pringles, or Mr. P, has steam coming from his ears on the Scorchin' tube. Are they really going to be that hot? 
On the left, we can see the addition of a chili pepper and fire to the regular Pringles chip. 

I see that they're advertising that there's nothing half full about this tube of Pringles. Back when I was in Bora Bora, the Pringles there were 4-5 inches from the top

These ones are full though. 

The Scorchin' Pringles have the tell-tale red coloring. Only on one side though. 

I asked the kids to participate and was surprised Ian was going to join us for this one. I think he's really just wanting to eat the regular Sour Cream & Onion Pringles.
Alli is game to try it though. 

Ian is getting a sip of water before going for it. 

And after the tiniest bite, he's done. 

Oh yeah, here's the good ones. Of all the chips that are out there, regular Sour Cream & Onion Pringles are my favorite. Theresa couldn't limit herself to just this one. She likes these, Funyuns, and Cheetos. A bit of variety for her. Alli likes Nacho Cheese Doritos the best. 

How are the Scorchin' Pringles? Alli thinks they're just okay. No way Ian likes them. 
I'm having a hard time picking out the Sour Cream & Onion flavoring. It's subtle on the original chip too. It's not a particularly spicy chip. Between the four Scorchin' chips that are out there, the Chili & Lime flavor is still my favorite.

  1. Look at Alli's "chip" smile :-)...Ian's enthusiasm for the Scorchin' chip was perfectly captured in his expression as he watched Alli try it first :-) Guess the Scorchin' was missing on this flavor...too bad, since Sour Cream & Onion is your favorite. Alli, Nacho Cheese Doritos are one of my favorites, too! Quality control on the Pringles (i.e., full canister) passed this time :-) EOM
