Turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie flavored chips went up for sale just before midnight, and were sold out before 1:00 a.m.
This holiday season, Pringles opted to go full in on turkey dinner with a full flavor of everything on a typical Thanksgiving table. The stackable chips are actually three fan favorites, reports USA Today, reoccuring from last year’s holiday flavors. Inspired by turkey, pumpkin pie, and stuffing, these chips come with all of the fixings.
However, it seems that if you’ve found yourself excited about trying these flavors, luck has run out. Atlanta Journal Constitution reported that in a mere 41 minutes, and despite costing a whopping $14.99 USD, these cans of holiday Pringles sold out. The initial sale started at 11:59 p.m. Eastern and were completely gone by 12:40 a.m. Eastern. An everyday can of Pringles sells for approximately $2.00 USD in retail stores.
Senior Vice President of marketing over at Kellogg’s U.S. Snacks division, Yuvraj Arora recently spoke with reporters about these thanksgiving snacks.
“When we launched Pringles Thanksgiving Dinner last year, it was so exciting to see Pringles fans’ positive reactions celebrating how insanely accurate the flavors were. We knew that we had to get Pringles Thanksgiving flavors in more people’s hands this year — particularly hearing that Turkey, Stuffing and Pumpkin Pie not only were delicious, but truly tasted like the real deal.”

Eight flavors hit the shelves last year, many of which did not join the turkey, pumpkin pie, and stuffing this time around. The missing flavors include, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, creamed corn, green bean casserole, as well as an American staple, macaroni and cheese. These flavors were served in special TV dinner styled tray.
This year’s limited edition flavors sold as a three-pack of miniature cans. According to Pringles, their turkey chips are a “take on the traditional oven roasted turkey flavor,” and the stuffing chips are “just like the herb-y side dish that you always seem to pile high on your dinner plate.” Meanwhile, the pie chips are being described as “sweet and spiced just like your grandma’s recipe.”
Renee Mailhoit, media supervisor at Edelman Chicago, said Pringles will also be auctioning off a pack on eBay for Giving Tuesday. Details were not immediately available, reports the Detroit Free Press.
Pringles is an American brand of potato and wheat based chips, stacked high in a circular can. The chips are known by many for the saying, “Once you pop, you just can’t stop.” Kellogg’s bought the Pringles brand in 2012 and have since been deemed the fourth most popular snack brand. Pringles comes in behind Lay’s Doritos, and Cheetos, which are all manufactured by Frito-Lay.
