You've been eating Pringles wrong this whole time

If there's one thing we thought we were good at, it's eating (read: scoffing, devouring, stuffing, demolishing) tubes of Pringles. Which is why we weren't best pleased to discover we've potentially been eating them wrong.

Our usual Pringle eating technique involves following taking the crisp straight out of the packet and putting it in our mouths with the top of the crisp facing the top of our mouth.

But according to a spokesperson for Kellogg's, the crisps are actually only seasoned on top, meaning for maximum flavour, the Pringle should be placed upside down on your tastebuds.

They told The Sun:

"Many people think that Pringles are seasoned on both sides. In fact, only the top side gets a sprinkling of seasoning in the factory. When Pringles are stacked in their can, some of the seasoning rubs off onto the next chip – which is why they’ve always been a little uneven."

So if it's maximum taste you're after? You need to place the seasoning directly on your tongue by turning your crisp over. Put the side we formerly thought was the top on your tongue, and the edges that used to caress your tongue facing upwards towards the roof of your mouth.

This changes everything.
