Nerdversity Reviews: Pringles 25th Anniversary Limited Edition Can

Pringles have been around since the 1960s in the USA, but over here in the UK, we didn't get them until the 1980s. This can, released this year, is to coincide with the 25th anniversary of Pringles within the United Kingdom. The can has been redesigned to resemble the original can from the 1988-1989 era, as well as the logo. These cans are much smaller than their modern counterparts and are 130g, rather than 190g. It has RETRO LIMITED EDITION on the top in yellow letters.

There's not much on the back of the can other than a recycling of the logo and the modern copyrighting and nutritional information. One thing to note, that although the can is designed to be retro to the 1980s design, the foil top and crisps inside are modern, so you know what you're getting. 

I paid 75p for this can from Tescos as part of their promotion for it. It's an interesting and unique piece of memorabilia that might have a home in your collection, if you're interested in throwback foodstuff.
