Had any Pringles today? Huh? Huh? They get a D- nutritional rating from Calorie Count, with 160 cals for 14 of the little cleverly shaped non-foods. Fat, salt and carb. Always thought they were cardboardy.
According to Potato Pro Newsletter, Pringles, which are fried and not baked, are "made from potato flour, corn flour, wheat starch and rice flour, together with fat and emulsifier, salt and seasoning, with a potato content of around 42 % only."
There you go, world. More to get fat on and with. Take another soda with those salty non-chips!
P&G sold the Pringles brand and line recently for $ 1.5 billion to Diamond Foods Inc., a company started back in the last century by walnut growers banding together in California. Walnuts, in bags. Actual food.
Seeing Pringles for sale always reminded me to rush out and play tennis, somehow. Wonder why that was.
(Hey--the tin(?) makes a zany iPod holder, or so said the geeks two years ago, Dude, the Forever Geeks, that is.)
