The team at Jezebel road-tested the woman’s method using an array of various wines and Pringles flavours - drinking chardonnay out of an Original flavour tube, pinot grigio from a Sour Cream and Onion tin and chianti from the BBQ flavoured Pringles can, to name a few - and their verdicts were, er, surprising.
Said one reviewer: ‘You smell the Pringle flavour - but you taste the wine. That’s a situation I could get down with.’
Added another: ‘I don’t hate it.’ Said a third of the BBQ Pringle and chianti combination: ‘That’s good. I feel it kind of adds to it.’
But others weren’t so sure, saying that the method should be a last resort.
‘If the only thing you have in your home is a bottle of wine and an empty tube of Pringles and you want to drink the wine and you don’t want to drink out of the bottle, you should definitely do it this way,’ a Jezebel reviewer said. ‘And if you need to go to the movies and again, you have no other vessel except a Pringles can, this is what you should do.’
