Want to be transported back in time to your old dorm room? Pringles has you covered. The popular potato chip brand has just announced it’s launching a new mashup flavor guaranteed to bring on that broke college student nostalgia. Introducing Ramen Chicken Pringles.
The company teamed up with Nissin Foods, the maker of Cup Noodles, to create this limited edition item that features the popular Top Ramen Chicken flavor on the surface of the Pringles chip.
This isn’t the first time either brand has attempted an innovative mashup. Nissen once went sweet in Japan, selling soft-serve ice cream in soy sauce and curry flavors. And Pringles is known for its sometimes wacky flavor combos, including hits like Pecan Pie and the misses like White Chocolate Peppermint.
