Pringles releases ramen-flavored potato chips, fills all of us in Japan with ravenous jealousy

Japan has had plenty of special Pringles flavors over the years, but these chips are solely for another nation.

While I can’t say I’ve never gotten homesick since moving to Japan, such feelings rarely occur when I’m hungry. Japan is a foodie’s paradise, and I’m not just talking about full meals, since you’d be hard-pressed to find a better selection of snack food anywhere on the planet.

One of the things that makes Japan such a great place to have the munchies is the constant parade of unique snack flavors. Even non-Japanese companies get in on the fun here. Take American potato chip brand Pringles, for example, which has released dozens of mouth-watering Japan exclusive flavors, including T-bone steak and wasabi seaweed.

But in a rare twist of fate, I find myself looking back across the Pacific with a tear in my eye and a rumble in my stomach, as Pringles has released ramen-flavored potato chips in the U.S.

Everybody loves #ramen! @Pringles #Nissin #snacks #grocery

The special chips are a joint effort with Nissin, the maker of Cup Noodles and Top Ramen brands, making their official flavor designation “Nissin Top Ramen Chicken.”
