Turducken Pringles Are Real—But Good Luck Finding Them!
The monumental feat of not-so-modern engineering known as the turducken is just as mouthwatering as it is terrifying. But what if you could get all that sodium-saturated deliciousness without a laborious cooking process—and with a satisfying crunch to boot?
That’s the philosophy behind turducken Pringles, which you achieve by stacking turkey-, duck-, and chicken-flavored Pringles together and gobbling them up in one fell swoop. They’re part of Pringles’s Friendsgiving Feast kit, which also includes other classic Thanksgiving flavors like cranberry sauce, stuffing, and pumpkin pie.
If you’re wondering who would deign to offend the gravy gods by purchasing such a kit, the answer, apparently, is just about everybody. According to Newsweek, there was such a plentiful bounty of online orders when the $16 kit launched yesterday that it sold out immediately, and also crashed the site.
“We underestimated your hunger for our Friendsgiving Feast!” the company wrote in an Instagram post. “Our website is experiencing heavy traffic and we’re doing everything we can to get it back up and running.”
The comments on the post reveal just how tantalizingly close some prospective customers got to tasting the holy trinity of fowl-flavored chips—the site allowed some people to place the kit in their carts, but shut down as soon as they tried to complete the purchase.
Since then, several new eBay listings for the Friendsgiving kit have appeared, with offers starting around $100.
If you’re not willing to shell out the big ducks for the full feast, you can settle for a sleeve of Pringles’s roasted turkey chips, which are hitting shelves now for a limited time.
