Pringle Chips are a wonder food of the 20th century. The 42 percent potato based chip-like snack took the world by storm in the 1960s and hasn’t let up since. Plain — or Original — Pringles aren’t flashy. They’re not going to wow anyone at a party. But, you know, they get the job done when you need a starch and salt fix without overtaxing your taste buds.
