Pringles Stix

I'm unsure what makes these new snack sticks from Pringles worthy of the Pringles name.
  • They're not made from potatoes.
  • They don't stack.
  • They don't come in a tube.
But here you have it, the newest snack in their line (and not only that, the packs boast less than 100 calories per pouch). Pringles Stix Baked Wheat Crispy Cracker Sticks are running a launch promotion with Nintendo's Wii game platform and claim to have you "snacking to a whole new beat." Check out their website to find details on the contest and in-store events at Wal-Marts in the South from late August through early October.

Current varieties include: Crunchy Wheat, Honey Butter, Pizza, and Vanilla. They come in packages of 10 and weigh 6.8 ounces. All 4 varieties are said to have less than 100 calories per pack and to have zero trans fat.

I just tried the "Honey Butter" and find them too buttery flavored for me. I am going to try the "Crunchy Wheat" (if my retail store carries it - last time I look they did not) and hopefully I will enjoy them more.

These things are freakin' awesome. Very thin, uniform, all lined-up in a nice thin pouch...very Pringlesque. Unique and flavorful. Irresistable taste! Bravo.

I am a vegetarian, and bought the crunchy wheat stix. I was getting ready to eat them, and read the ingredients. There is CONCENTRATED CHICKEN STOCK in them. Don't know why, since they are WHEAT flavored. Im quite angry.

- Are you kidding anonymous? I mean hello!!! Pocky? Pretz? Where they not the first to do this? Are you so in the dark that you have missed these products? They have been out since 1965! Maybe you should get out more.

Positively addictive. The honey butter are to die for...I can't get enough!!!

I like the Vanilla flavored ones buty I saw something on the package which bothers me: "Made in Thailand". While at least it is not China, you would think we have enough baking capacity in the United States to produce them here. It is as much a food safety thing as it is a jobs thing.

Like someone said above, it contains chicken stock. No, thank you !

The Pizza flavored Stix aren't vegetarian either, they contain pork extract. I'm not a vegetarian, but that's just ridiculous. They are tasty though, and relatively low in calories...

what about the fact that they are made abroad? and what about the sardines listed as an ingredient..ooh

I just found out the pringle stix are made in Thailand and that will be the last time I will buy or eat them.

vanilla ones are good, but yeah, what the heck's up with the chicken stock and sardines (SARDINES!!) in the "crunchy wheat" ones? Doesn't taste like wheat to me....
blah.

It says "Product of thailand", at least on the honey butter ones. Now maybe its just me, but when I read that it seemed that these had been made for a while in thailand as a snack there and then brought over to the US by Pringles some sort of way? I'm probably just making things up but I was trying to find out if that was the case. That is how I found this blog.


The fact that there is any kind of animal in these is a bit much though.

The pizza ones are so yummy! I'm addicted! I'm only 9 years old you know!

Chicken stock is weird enough, but palm oil is the worst!!! Only 90 calories but mostly from fat. Tasty, but I won't be buying them again.
