14. 7-Layer Dip
The newest offering in the Pringles arsenal (available only at 7-Eleven as of this writing) is just a cacophony of flavors that confuses the tongue in the best way possible. The aim is to create a chip version of the dip that invariably gets warm and gross at most Super Bowl parties, and honestly, that should be astoundingly icky. But here we are, and the world is better for it. According to the notes I received, it’s supposed to evoke refried beans, guacamole, sour cream, salsa, cheese, tomatoes, green onions, and olives. But what it actually tastes like is slightly spicy nacho cheese with a little beany aftertaste. It’s like a mutation of stadium nachos: Salty (thanks, olives), strange, and beautiful. Sure, I could maybe use a little extra tomato and the bean flavor is a tad overpowering, but I’m not complaining. I’d rather eat these than 90% of actual 7-layer dips that show up on game day. Bring on artichoke dip chips, I say!
