Snacks and TV go together like dads and lawnmowers. The geniuses at Pringles know this – since 1967, they have brought us the most convenient snacking container, and the only chips that don’t get crushed if you sneak them into a movie theater in your backpack. The people at Pringles have done an incredible job of keeping chips interesting over the years, with over 34 different flavors currently available in the US. Last year, Pringles jumped on the Rick and Morty bandwagon bringing us a Pickle Rick pickle-flavored chip fit for a drunk mad scientist.
Now, Rick and Morty are venturing even deeper into the snack universe. Teaming up once again with our favorite potato-based chips, Pringles is launching two new flavors inspired by the colorful universe-hopping duo. Rick and Morty showed up in a hilarious Super Bowl commercial last year, in which Rick realizes he’s stuck in a Pringles commercial with a robotic army of Pringles-pushing Mortys. The cyber-Mortys march into the living room, mechanically urging Summer and Rick to “stack Pringles, make endless new flavors.” It’s as if the plan was set into motion long ago – now, thanks to the two new flavors, you can indeed stack (Rick and Morty) Pringles to make some interesting new flavors.
Pickle Rick pickle-flavored Pringles were the first of the trio to hit stores, but joining the tangy tube on the interdimensional snack scene are Honey Mustard Morty and Look at Me! I’m Cheddar & Sour Cream.
According to the press release, the Honey Mustard Morty’s “sweet flavor profile perfectly embodies Morty Smith’s well-mannered and blissfully ignorant nature, while the slight hint of tanginess reflects the risky adventures he’s unwillingly roped into by his Grandpa Rick.”
On the Cheddar & Sour Cream front, the snack giant explains that “Mr. Meeseeks tall, powder-blue figure is naturally emulated in this narrow can of Pringles crisps. Since existence is pain for a Meeseeks, you better eat these crisps fast—which should be no problem given how delicious these flavors are.”
Senior director of marketing for Pringles explained, “After launching the Pickle Rick crisps for the 2020 Big Game, the response from both fanbases was literally out of this world. The Pringles brand prides itself on pushing fans to find new, creative ways to unlock endless dimensions of flavor. Paired with the standout hit, Pringles Pickle Rick crisps, these snackable, stackable crunchy treats are an absolute must-have for fans.”
A must-have for fans of Rick and Morty, and a must-have for fans of Pringles. Basically, these crispy snacks are made for pretty much everyone. Beginning this month, these limited-edition Pringles will be on sale exclusively at Walmart in stores and online, in a universe near you.
