The American chip brand is joining forces with Japanese ramen brand Super Cup by Acecook
Pringles and Acecook are teaming up to create some rather unique snacks in Japan.
Sora News 24 reports that American chip brand Pringles is cooperating with Japanese ramen brand Super Cup by Acecook to create Pringles Ramen and Ramen Pringles.
Pringles has previously dabbled in local Japanese flavours including sukiyaki and takoyaki octopus balls. Now, the chip brand is pushing the boat out by producing a Pringles flavoured ramen.
Super Cup and Pringles are celebrating their 30th and 50th anniversaries respectively with four new limited-edition products.
Perhaps the most bizarre product is the Pringles Sour Cream and Onion Yakisoba. The noodles are flavoured with the same onion, garlic, sour cream and cheese flavours found in Pringles. To intensify the flavour, an additional Sour Cream and Onion seasoning sachet is provided too.
Acecook Torigara Shoyu Ramen Pringles is the next product in the range, featuring Super Cup’s signature chicken bone soy sauce torigara shoyu. On the package, a chip is is sitting in a bowl of ramen broth like an onsen with a chasiu on its head representing a towel.
Next is the Acecook Ika Yakisoba Aji Pringles, which translates to Squid Fried Noodles Flavour. The sweet, tart and unami flavours are perfect for seafood lovers. A chip is seen eating yakisoba with chopsticks on the packaging.
Jalapeño and Onion flavoured cup noodles is the final product. The portion size is in line with Super Cup’s signature size, which is 1.5 times larger than regular cup ramen. The noodles are flavoured in a chicken broth base with potatoes and onions. A Pringles Jalapeño seasoning is served in a separate sachet so you can add it to your liking.
Each Pringles-flavoured noodles will retail at 200 yen from 15 October. Ramen-flavoured Pringles will cost 122 yen and will be available from 23 October.
