Caution: New collection packs the red-hot taste of Hot Ones wing sauces into the hottest Pringles® crisps yet

BATTLE CREEK, Mich., May 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Heat lovers know Pringles® Scorchin' never fails to kick it up a notch by delivering a spicy heat that builds over time, but the flavor masters at Pringles set their sights on a new challenge. Enlisting the help of First We Feast's™ internet phenomenon Hot Ones™, whose notoriously hot wing sauces put fans' tastebuds to the test, Pringles is releasing the NEW limited-edition Pringles Scorchin' Hot Ones™ lineup. This collection of Hot Ones-inspired crisps pack a deliciously fiery burn in every bite. Can you handle the heat?

Proceed with caution and be careful around the eyes! Nobody does spice that makes you sweat better than Hot Ones, and packing the delicious, red-hot taste of Hot Ones wing sauce into each fiery crisp was a task suited only for the flavor masters at Pringles.  

"Our partnership with Hot Ones is a match made in spicy heaven, so we're thrilled to collaborate with the show known to test your limits with hot questions and even hotter wing sauce," said Mauricio Jenkins, senior director of marketing for Pringles. "We challenged ourselves to perfectly match the fiery burn of Hot Ones wing sauce to create our spiciest flavors yet. The debut of the Pringles Scorchin' Hot Ones lineup will have fans sweating just like their favorite celeb guests on the show." 

The product is available in three flavor varieties:

  • Pringles® Scorchin' Hot Ones™ The Classic Hot Sauce: The timeless hot sauce flavor with an extra peppery kick that will keep snackers coming back for more.
  • Pringles® Scorchin' Hot Ones™ Los Calientes Rojo: The perfect balance of sweet applewood smoked red jalapeños and tangy habanero for a fiery blaze in every bite.
  • Pringles® Scorchin' Hot Ones™ Los Calientes Verde: The punchy, smoky blend of serrano and habanero chiles, sweet fruit and tart tomatillo packed in one, crispy bite.

No Hot Ones challenge is complete without the notorious Last Dab, an extra dollop of their lineup's hottest sauce on the final wing. While the Last Dab-ified Pringles are not available for purchase, Pringles and Hot Ones are offering four hundred lucky heat-lovers the chance to win a can of Last Dab-ified Pringles with the Show Us Your Hotness Sweepstakes. If fans are looking for fun for the whole family, they can try participating in the Truth or Dab Sweepstakes for a chance to win 1 of 50 Hot Ones Truth or Dab Expansion Packs.

"Since its launch in 2012, the Emmy-nominated Hot Ones continues to be a pop-culture phenomenon. What started as a show seventeen seasons and two billion views ago, has forever redefined the way celebrities connect with their fans and the world at large," said Chris Schonberger, general manager of First We Feast.
