Need a vacation from common flavors? Pringles Wavy Pineapple Habanero might be the snack escape of the summer. What food pairs perfectly with these tropical crisps?

Pringles continues to push the flavor creativity with its newest offering. After the Wendy’s collaboration on the Spicy Chicken Sandwich crisps, snack fans were wondering where the brand would go next. It seems that its creative flavor team has vacations on the mind.

The new Pringles Wavy Pineapple Habanero brings a taste of the tropics to the can. Combining the heat of the habanero with the sweetness of the pineapple, the yin and yang of flavors complement each other and have everyone going back for another taste.

Gareth Maguire, senior director of marketing for Pringles, said “We love epic flavor combinations at Pringles, and these new tropical-inspired crisps are no exception. The sweet and spicy flavor will have snackers in vacation mode all summer long, making backyard grills and local beach trips feel like a getaway.”

How could you flavor snack Pringles Wavy Pineapple Habanero?

Thinking about this new Pringles flavor, it is a slightly different offering from the other flavors in the brand’s line-up. While there are various spicy flavors, the addition of the sweet pineapple makes it a must try. The combination of sweet and heat make the snack approachable for food fans who might be a little apprehensive of the heat.

Also, the wavy texture is a nice nod to the tropics. Whether or not those waves are meant to mimic a tropical beach, the reality is that waves add both texture and fun to eating each crisp.

Although flavor stacking a wavy Pringles is a little more challenging, it is doable. Looking at the other wavy Pringles flavors, the combination of the sweet and spicy BBQ with the Pringles Wavy Pineapple Habanero could be quite intriguing, but the Pringles Wavy Deep Fried Pickle might be a little too adventurous.

If snack fans are looking for a simpler approach, consider adding the Pringles Wavy Pineapple Habanero as a garnish on a pork sandwich, marinated shrimp or even just a topping for a simple grilled chicken. Basically, think of the flavors like a pineapple salsa and these crisps should pair accordingly.

The new Pringles Wavy Pineapple are available for a limited time. The snacks can be purchased at Walgreens, Duane Reade stores and online.
