Corn on the cob is a summer staple. It’s at the heart of summer pool parties, picnics in the parks, and get-togethers. And while corn is pretty versatile, it still came as a surprise to hear of Pringles’ new chip flavor: Sweet Corn.
Corn is known to go well in chips. Tortilla chips, anyone? But, we never thought we’d see the day that corn chips met potato chips. Pringles Sweet Corn seamlessly blends the two chip types and allows us to enjoy corn on the cob in chip form. The flavor profile hints at cooked corn, sweet and salty fresh corn, and creamy butter.
Instagram user @i_need_a_snack_ shared a photo of these limited edition chips and made sure to include a useful review as well. “Now the initial smell test was great and SPOT ON. It was as if I had closed my eyes and hot steamy corn on the cob with a chunk of butter on top was right in front of me!” they wrote.

It’s Review Time! 🌽 @pringlesus has decided to bring us all down to the farm and pluck, shuck and cook up some homegrown sweet corn. Except this time all of this sweet corn flavor has been packed into a Pringles Chip! I present, Pringles Sweet Corn! • • Now I absolutely LOVEEEEE corn on the cob, I have it as a side with a ton of my meals that I cook at home. So seeing this flavor I was excited but also a little scared because corn flavor Pringles honestly sounds a little strange! 😂 As always Pringles has awesome artwork on the front of the can, and this time we have a Pringle with a napkin around his neck and he’s going to town on a corn on the cob with a delicious looking plate of more corn right under him! As always we have the Limited Time Only logo at the top so make sure to scoop these up before there gone! Now I spotted these at my local @walgreens and from what I’ve heard, this is a Walgreens and associated stores exclusive, so check there if you’re interested in this! Now the initial smell test was great and SPOT ON. It was as if I had closed my eyes and a hot and steamy corn on the cob with a chunk of butter on top was right in front of me! Now as far as looks, go you can’t really tell from my photos but these Pringles are Bright Neon Yellow, just like the color of corn! How cool is that! Now the taste is also spot on and it isn’t really a sweet corn on the cob flavor as it is more of a sweet cup of corn flavor that you would get at a restaurant! That sweet and rich flavor from the butter along with the fresh corn itself, and as strange as you may think this sounds it really works well! Overall I love this Pringles chip flavor, I couldn’t eat it everyday but it sure is a great occasional snack! 8.5/10 🌟
We are going to go ahead and declare that these chips are healthy. They taste like a veggie, they smell like a veggie, so this means that they are good for us, right? Please do not shatter this illusion for us. We’re all friends here.SKM: below-content placeholder
