In a now-famous episode of the show, a scientist turns into a pickle to avoid going to family therapy…as one does? Thus, “Pickle Rick” was born.
Rick and Morty fans have been able to enjoy a wide range of product tie ins over the years. Now, Pringles lovers will be able to express their love for the popular series, too. Those of you who enjoy Pringles on a regular basis might be wondering where these chips have been all of your life. The good folks at Pringles are here to make your existence a bit easier.
The Pickle Rick flavor that was once available before has made a triumphant return. The Adult Swim series that was once considered to be a cult favorite has now gone mainstream. Everyone remembers the episode where Rick was on the verge of being forced into family therapy. He did not want to go, so he decided that he would turn himself into a pickle instead.
This genius plan has now been memorialized in chip form. The Pickle Rick is delicious and if you did not have the chance to enjoy them the first time around, this is your chance to rectify it. The chips are not in stores yet, though. If you were looking to purchase them in time for Christmas, you have to wait a bit longer. The Pickle Rick chip will be here in time for the Super Bowl.
The big game needs to be enjoyed in style, right? That’s what makes this release such an important one. No Super Bowl party is going to be complete without them. We are already clearing out the necessary space in our pantry and we recommend that you do the same. To no one’s surprise, this partnership is going to be commemorated with a Super Bowl ad.
It is safe to say that the world of Rick and Morty has moved beyond cult status. We just hope that the longtime fans of this show will be ready to share space with all the newcomers on the bandwagon. Jill King is the Adult Swim senior vice president of partnerships and marketing. She is hoping that this partnership will continue well after the big game is over.
Pringles has been rolling out some rather bizarre flavors lately. We are totally here for it, though. It is high time that the chip aisles were filled with more options besides the same old same old, right? If you are anything like us, you are going to be passing this story along to the Rick and Morty lovers in your life as soon as possible.
