There is no shortage of limited edition flavors this time of year. We’ve got gingerbread, hot cocoa, candy cane, eggnog…But the one “limited edition” flavor I’ve never really understood is sugar cookie. Sugar cookies are widely available all year round, so why do we get so excited about them now? It’s like fat guys with beards who are suddenly celebrated around the holidays because they look like Santa Claus. You guys aren’t that great!
…And neither are Sugar Cookie Pringles. These things start with the illusion of a sugar cookie, your taste buds deceived by the fine sugary dusting on each chip. But that quickly fades into a strongly salty potato flavor that builds as you eat them. I consumed far too many Pringles hoping the sugar cookie flavor would develop, but just got a mouth full of potato. If you’re craving sugar cookies this holiday season, don’t reach for that blue sweater-patterned can, no matter how cute it is.
