It came out in the mid 80's, and the commercial had a bunch farm girls dancing with the Pringle Canister.

I loved Corn Pringles, it is to this day the BEST favor out of all the Pringles. Do they still made this wonderfully snack? If any one has information about this gift from God please email me at

I wrote to pringles wondering if they still made it. Unfortunately, there was not a great demand for them. I say we start a petition and have them bring it back. I TOO LOVE THE CORN FLAVORED PRINGLES!!!!

Never a better flavor of Pringles. Didn't they come in a black can with yellow and green writing? I remember my Grandpa got them for us all the time. I wrote to Pringles and asked about them and shortly after they came out with those torengos or whatever they were called. Sent me back an email that said they were shocked at all the questions they received about the corn pringles and that was their "meeting in the middle" solution. It's just not the same.

Maybe we should start a petition? I haven't had corn pringles in year, but they are my all time favourite chips and easily the best pringles flavour!

Corn Pringles Mystery Solved! - July 07, 2008 - Report this comment
I have been questioning myself for years if corn Pringles existed. I'm 22 years old, and I remember a time when I was about 4, at the grocery store. I saw a Pringles container, and it was black, with maybe a picture of a corn on it. I remember the smell and taste of corn Pringles to this day. My bf and I were talking about Pringles today, and asked him if corn Pringles existed. I looked it up on google, and it did! I can stop questioning myself about it...but I really do hope they put this flavor out again.

The other visitors are right: Corn Pringles were and still are the BEST Pringles Flavor by far. The flavor still haunts me to this day. I still salivate when I think of them! I feel so bad for myself that I want it so bad and they don't exist any more.

If the internet is good for nothing else, it is a good place to find out that you aren't the only one with a completely obscure favorite chip of all time. what a texture. what a flavor. tostitos got nothing on corn pringles. let's start a band.

Guys, we seriously need to start a petition for the corn pringles, look at all the comments here! Children of the 80's, I know you remember that glorious black can that housed these beauties. They were like Dorito/Pringle hybrids. I must have them! They have literally released about 70 flavors of Pringles over the years, but they won't give us these. We need to do something!
Erika - February 24, 2009 - Report this comment
God, I remember the flavor as if I had just eaten them yesterday...honestly the best pringle flavor known to man. Nobody I know remembers them (sad but true). I even called Pringles and asked them about the flavor after it had been discontinued, but they just told me they weren't making them anymore. *sigh* You here are my only true comrades in this battle.

Thank goodness there are other sane people out there that remember corn Pringles. Everytime I bring it up I am met with confused expressions and shakes of the head as if I'm the one with a bad memory. They were the best Pringles ever and I still to this day look for them when I pass the Pringles section of the grocery store. We've got to keep on fighting this good fight.

I really wish that someone at Proctor & Gamble would hear our cries and start producing the corn pringles once again. Whenever I ask people if they remember the corn pringle, it is as if I have alluded to some mythical beast. No one has ever seen or heard of the things even though they were easily the best pringles ever.
Silvesco - August 17, 2009 - Report this comment
Just sitting and thinking and a long lost flavor crawled up from the deep recesses of my mind. Corn Pringles, salty bumpy texture on one side, corn flavored smoothness on the other. I knew I was not crazy and these did exist. Now I need something that has not been thought about in years. Crap

Sigh, how I miss you O, Corn Pringles! I've never looked at cylindrical chips the same since you've left me. My kids will never know the joys you brought me during my childhood. You were only the best chips EVER!

CORN PRINGLES are the BEST!!!! I remember being a kid and leaving each Pringles Corn chip in my mouth for as long as possible to savor the flavor. BRING 'em back Pringles, c'mon everyone's doing the retro reviving thing...look at the movie industry, you know it would be a hit I would much rather chow down an entire tube of Pringles Corn Chip while watching the remake of the remake of It's a Wonderful Life than filling up on a jumbo tub of over-buttered popcorn!

Corn Pringles are by a mile...the best and only flavour of pringles worth eating.It is not so obscure a chip as what some of you might think. Everyone i knew loved them back when they made them. The reason a food manufacture ceases a line ( it particularly seems to apply to popular lines of chips ), is to avoid canabalisation of it's other lines, and a lower overall sales total for its lines within that category. They stopped making them because they weren't popular?...what a load of whoo-ee! Bring back the CORN!!

Growing up I remember a black canister w/ corn on it, they must've been Corn Pringles w/ this AWESOME cheese flavoring sprinkled on top. That was over 15 years ago, but I remember the taste like it was yesteday!! They were just as good as the BBQ Munchos!! Anybody remember those?? They're gone too. People must think we're nuts, but it's hard to forget it! All my friends just laugh, cuz they don't remember. Poor saps!!!

Guys, I too miss that delicious flavor of the corn Pringles. It was actually in the mid-90's though, not the '80's. Well, although we may never have that exact chip again, there IS hope! Frito Lay recently introduced their, Tostitos brand in a "Yellow corn" flavor. It is AMAZING! It is VERY similar to the corn Pringles! It's a little more expensive than Doritos (as you only get 9 oz. vs 12 for the same price), but they are "Made with certified organic corn". Here are the ingredients: Whole organic yellow corn, expeller-pressed sunflower oil, and sea salt. (taken verbatim from the bag) Give these chips a try! You will INSTANTLY be transported back to your days with the corn Pringles. Then post a message here & give your opinion. I agree that not only were the corn Pringles the BEST flavor of Pringles, but also the BEST chip period! It was because of the corn Pringles I started buying Doritos more than any other chip. Also, if you REALLY want to try something cool, heat up a small amount of your favorite margarine (I prefer ICBINB) & dip these chips in it! It's a LOT like eating buttered corn. Perhaps that will be the next flavor. I can't say that these are exactly the same, but they are close enough to satisfy that decade-old desire for the best chips of all time.

As many of you already stated, I to remember this wonderful snack. I am now 29 and also thought I only dreamed of them exhisting, but thankfully im not totally crazy. We would get them when my family would go camping throughout the state parks of wisconsin. I loved them greatly and yesterday while working a smell trigered this truely great memory of a time when the extinct corn pringle exhisted. It's never too late to bring them back oh makers of the great CP,please do. You'll have good sales, and if life has taught me one thing so far its to say you'll never know unless you make an effort. MAKE THE EFFORT, WE MISS THEM.

My father was in the military and we were stationed in Manheim, Germany in the mid 80's when I discovered the bright yellow can with the corn peeled halfway out of the husk. I remember the can being the only pringles can that you could touch and feel the engraving of the print. The texture of this particular pringle has never been duplicated and neither has the flavor. They didn't exist when we moved back to the states, but I've dreamt about this particular staple for years. I would love to purchase a can from anyone who may wish to sell. BUT, I am attempting to set up a facebook petition to bring them back. All of the failing flavors of pringle over the years. I believe newbees will get hooked and oldies will embrase the rekindling of an old delicious addiction!

I notice no one mentioning the flavor lineup much. Where I lived, Corn Pringles came in three varieties.... Regular (which was way better than Frito's.) ... Ranch (which blew the doors off of Cool Ranch Doritos) .... and Cheese, which really didn't have a comparative rival. The cheese flavor is now on the regular Pringles potato chip lineup which is OK but not as good as when it was on the corn ones. I wonder if eating Frito's and the modern Cheese Pringles at the same time would spark a flavor flash-back :-\

I have always remembered corn Pringles since i had them as a child and, like many of you, still look for them in the grocery store "just in case" they would miraculously show up again. Great news! I just tasted a chip that actually exists that tastes EXACTLY as I remember Corn Pringles. They are Green Giant Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips - Sea Salt. Please try them and see if you feel the same and comment back. I discovered this by accident, but they definitely taste exactly like Corn Pringles!

Friends, our junk food prayers have been answered and the corn Pringles are back! I almost had a heart attack in Walgreen's yesterday when I saw them, like finding a long lost friend after all these years! The taste is as good as I recall from my childhood and there is now a ranch flavor in addition to plain and nacho cheese! I hope they sell well & remain on the market, I can't deal with them disappearing again.

I found the Pringles Tortillas at Walmart and grabbed a can to read the ingredients. I wanted to get 10 cans but I wanted to make sure they tasted the same. And.... They do!!!!! I just wish they had cheddar flavored as well. I have a few cans right now and just opened one up. So good with rotel or plain. I am entirely too excited about these. The weird thing was I was talking about them a week before I found them. So happy!!!! I'm stocking up on payday!!!!!

Is it just me or do the "original" pringles taste like crap these days??/ I haven't bought them in many years but they were a staple back in the 80's... now they are horrible things which leave a nasty film in the mouth... not at all like I remember... perhaps it is the trans fats that used to be allowed to be used... not sure.. the new ones actually irritate my mouth and seem more chemical based... I can say I loved them in the past but after trying them recently, I won't be buying them again... they are worse than even bargain brand chips in the supermarket... yuck... kind of like music.. the stuff these days pales in comparison to the stuff of the past... now it is about money and marketing.. not content

Yes as some have posted the closest thing we can get to the originals are Pringles Tortillas! Taste almost the same, a slight bit saltier. I bought a ridiculous amount of cans when they first hit the market. Now I am finding it harder and harder to find just Original they have the Tortillas series in stock bit flavored like Salsa or Cheese - not a fan.

No yeayyyh . I am like not sure if this was the original taste? But however the tortilla Pringles taste great too, but I still miss somehow the old ones.
