Did you hear the one about Trashy Miss Pringle who tried to disguise herself as Classy Healthy Food?
Pringles Multi-Grain look like genuine whole grain tortilla chips, but if you focus your eyeballs on the label you might be confused.
Yep, there’s some wheat bran in there, but the impressive whole grain appearance seems to be achieved through the use of dried black beans that (maybe) equal the equivalent of 1/8 of a bean (so basically no nutritional value). The black bean specks make this chip looks like it’s got a ton of whole grains.
I think we’ve been duped?
Unfortunately, none of this mattered to my taste buds. I became a slave to mindless munching. I needed the chips slapped out of my mouth. They taste like regular Pringles, but with a grainy texture and weird aftertaste that I can’t put my finger on. It’s not so terrible that you have to stop eating. This is where you can get into trouble and trainwreck an entire day of good choices.
Be careful with these.
Don’t just throw them in your cart because it says “whole grain” on the package. Read the label and decide if you really need to buy this. As for me? These things will NEVER set foot in my Food Trap again.
Trashy Miss Pringle can’t be Classy at all. It’s impossible. Not even a black bean can save her.
