Stack these Pringles
Don't be suspicious — unless it's Suspicious Stew. That's the idea behind Pringles' latest limited-edition flavor.
This month the chip maker released Pringles Minecraft Suspicious Stew, its first-ever collaboration with the popular game named for an in-game food item.
"Minecraft is beloved by a community of millions, many of which are Pringles fans, so we delivered a tasting experience fans could previously only imagine — the famous suspicious stew," Mauricio Jenkins, U.S. marketing lead for Pringles, said in a news release. "We challenged ourselves to bring the flavor of suspicious stew and its ingredients to crisp-form, creating a flavor experience so delicious that both Minecraft players and non-players will reach for more."
In the game, Suspicious Stew is a food item that provides players with a status effect depending on the flower used to craft it.
These chips don't promise any special powers but are reported to offer your taste buds the status effect of "flavor overload."
Having tried a sample, I can say they have a bit of tomato soup zest with definite notes of onion and garlic. (A look at the ingredients confirms these ingredients.) It's easy to imagine gamers young and old chowing down on these while building their in-game world.
Additionally, from now until July 31, fans who purchase any Pringles can or participating Kellogg's products and upload their receipts to KelloggMinecraftPromo.com will receive 350 Minecoins to use in-game. Receipts must be uploaded by Aug. 30 and the claim must be completed by Sept. 7. Coins must be redeemed at Minecraft.net/redeemcoins by March 28, 2024.
Heinz spices it up
The spicy sauce category has grown thanks to Heinz, which recently launched three spicy ketchup flavors — chipotle, jalapeno and habanero — and a new Heinz Hot 57 Sauce.
Adding a jalapeno twist to the brand's classic 57 sauce, the Heinz Hot 57 Sauce is the first new Heinz 57 product in over 10 years.
"We know consumers are hungry for a wider variety of spicy sauces and flavors, and as a consumer-obsessed brand at the forefront of food culture, we saw an exciting opportunity to innovate around our fans' evolving preferences," Lindsay Davis, brand manager, Heinz innovation at Kraft Heinz, said in a news release. "Listening to insights gleaned from our audience showed us that a sauce's heat source really matters to them, which served as a north star in creating new products with curated and flavorful, pepper-specific bases."
All four products are available nationwide.
