‘Extremely rare’ pringle with an unusual crease is for sale on eBay for an insane price
As the Pringles jingle, once you’ve busted you can’t stop. However, I would be tempted to ration them a bit after a certain price.
Keeping in mind that your average 200g tube of around 100 Pringles will probably set you back Â£ 2.50 – or Â£ 1.50 with your trusty Tesco Clubcard – personally I wouldn’t expect to pay much more than 2 pence per Pringle. Although, to be fair, I don’t tend to buy individual Pringles.
The highest amount I have personally ever paid for a special occasion meal is probably around Â£ 90, and that takes into account drinks and desserts etc.
So it’s incomprehensible to me that someone is even considering paying what is essentially a full month’s rent on just one chip. I mean, no matter how tasty the flavor can be, just one crunch and it’s gone forever and – famous – you won’t want it anymore.
However, it doesn’t seem like the flavor here is the special selling point, with the original-flavored Pringle’s superpower seemingly coming from its rare fold.
Marketed as an ‘Extremely Rare Folded Pringle’ by Grantham, UK-based eBay seller muimm3408_tzmagku, 25 potential buyers have viewed the snack in the past 24 hours. Although it is said to be in new condition, interested parties should be warned that there is a “slight crack”.
For those who watch the pennies this Christmas, serious chip lovers can opt for a monthly payment plan of Â£ 31 over a two-year period, by which time the chips will unfortunately have expired (08/01/23, if you are. interested).
Additionally, this payment plan brings the final cost to Â£ 744, which is almost Â£ 100 more than paying the price up front, so this option will likely only be reserved for serious, crisp fans.
Shipping costs Â£ 3.20 and – if you indulge yourself today – you can have it delivered to your doorstep between Saturday 11 December and Tuesday 14 December. The perfect bizarre gift for the opulent snack lover in your life, or a fun but ultimately regrettable purchase after too many Bailey’s, it’s up to you.
