Pringles - only USA ones please!
Hallelujah, I finally found some "Made in USA" Pringles chips - right here in my neighbourhood Cold Storage! In recent years, all the ones I saw were the awful "Made for ASEAN market" variety manufactured (no doubt cheaply) in Philippines or Malaysia. Those taste like salted paper mâché - nothing like the real deal! Turned me off Pringles for a long time. Now these US-made babies taste much better, although they're a lot lighter and more delicate than I remember. Well, maybe they adjusted the formula a bit - these chips are now lauded as trans-fat free.
Look for the "Product of U.S.A" mark when you buy. Maybe I haven't been shopping in the right places much - I heard from NinjaHelloKitty that US versions are also available in Carrefour and Jasons.
This special six-can-pack only costs S$7.95 , which works out to be only S$1.33 per canister! Two flavours of Regular, two of Sour Cream and Onion (my favourite still), one Spicy Guacamole and one Loaded Baked Potato. Perfect for the holiday season!
