Pringles Revives Discontinued Honey Mustard Flavor Thanks To Fan Demand

Pringles lovers, rejoice! Your voices have been heard, offering hope to all the Raspberry Rally enthusiasts still campaigning for the return of the discontinued Girl Scout cookie. Following a surge of requests from fans on the internet, Kellanova, the company behind Pringles, announced it would resurrect the beloved Honey Mustard flavor. This decision comes two years after Kellanova discontinued the product, prompting thousands of disappointed customers to inundate social media and online retailers like Walmart with pleas for the chips' return.

Earlier this week, Pringles hinted at the flavor's imminent comeback on Instagram by posting an image of a label-less, honey mustard-colored can alongside the caption, "It won't be a secret for long, besties!" For those unfamiliar with the flavor, the company characterizes the chip as "a savory blend of garlic and red spices" that "perfectly balances tangy mustard notes with subtly sweet hints of honey." 

Mauricio Jenkins, U.S. marketing lead for Pringles, stated, "Honey Mustard was the most requested flavor from the brand over the last two years." The cans are expected to return to shelves before the month's end.

Pringles has 318,000 flavor combinations

Pringles were first introduced in the 1950s, and since then, the brand has developed 160 different flavor combinations. Currently, there are 25 different products available in the U.S. market, with even more offered globally. However, not every flavor is sold internationally, as the company tailors its offerings to various regions and cultures. For those seeking novelty, the Pringles website asserts that combining different flavors can create 318,000 unique flavor stacks (that's two or more chips consumed simultaneously).

In the United Kingdom, where potato chips are referred to as crisps, Pigs in a Blanket and Cheese Fondue flavors are popular. In Japan, you can find Egg Sandwich-flavored Pringles, while Sweet Mayo Cheese is available in South Korea. Despite the plethora of choices, a recent sales review revealed that two flavors are universally adored: Original and Sour Cream and Onion remain the top-selling flavors worldwide.

In addition to the Honey Mustard Pringles, the brand has recently introduced new flavors such as Philly Cheesesteak, Enchilada Adobada, and Everything Bagel. The company values customer feedback, and encourages fans to share flavor suggestions. Who knows, maybe a caviar-flavored Pringles will make its debut one day?
