Just when you think Pringles can’t improve on the existing flavor lineup, they perform a magic trick right before our very eyes. The recent Sweet Corn flavor had us scouring the shelves at Walgreens not too long ago.
Now, Pringles has teamed up with Wendy’s to make a chip infused with the flavors of beef, cheese and bacon!
Introducing the Wendy’s BACONATOR Pringles
I’m definitely a Wendy’s fan. They’ve been my favorite fast-food place for as long as I can remember, and it’s because of their square burgers. They’re consistently fresh and delicious. Imagine my absolute surprise when I heard about the combination of a Wendy’s Baconator and those crunchy Pringles chips!
If you’ve never had a Baconator, the massive burger consists of a two quarter-pound beef patties, six pieces of bacon, American cheese, mayo and ketchup. That’s a lot of flavor to pack into a single chip, but when it comes to Pringles, I have high hopes. I mean, did you taste their Reuben chips?
Instagram user @candyhunting found and sampled the hearty snack, reporting that its flavor hits on every individual component of the Baconator. Packing all those ingredients into one chip is an incredible feat to say the least.

Here are the new Wendy’s Baconator Pringles! The Pringles have been spotted at Festival Foods, ShopRite, Price Chopper, and Target so far. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A Baconator burger has two quarter pound beef patties, American cheese, six pieces of bacon, ketchup, and mayonnaise. This was the first time I’ve tried a Baconator. It’s quite substantial and tasty! (I still prefer the Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger, but that’s not the point here.) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The flavor of the Pringles touches on each component of the Baconator. The ketchup, cheese, burger, and bacon are all present here. One problem: The flavor Pringles uses for bacon isn’t the greatest. It tastes a little burnt. This is the same bacon flavor used in the Bacon Pringles that first came out in 2014 as a Walmart exclusive and returned last year as a Dollar General exclusive. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If Pringles brought a better bacon flavor, these would be slam dunk. Nevertheless, it’s still a solid chip (or crisp). 7.5/10.
Grab a Stack Before They Disappear!
The new chips were spotted at Festival Foods, a grocery chain in Wisconsin. Hopefully they’ll sell well enough to find their way to the rest of the country. Next time you’re out shopping, take a quick look to see if they’re available in your local store. Then, when you’re finally home munchin’ on your new favorite flavor, create a copycat Frosty to go with it. It’s like a full Wendy’s meal!
