Pringles Speaker

Do you have a guilty pleasure snack? I'm an avowed chocoholic but my true snack lust is reserved for Pringles. I love the crispy potato stacks and their tall proprietary cans with the seldom-needed plastic lids… as they've said "once you pop you can't stop." This is particularly true of flavors like pizza, sour cream and, uh, tabby kitten.

Okay, there is no kitten flavor, you caught me. Still, if you're indulging in some Pringles binges this summer, you might want to save your receipts. Through Halloween 2011, if you mail in receipts from four Super Stack cans and an official redemption form, you'll receive a cool little speaker doohickey that plugs into your iPod and uses an empty Pringles can as an amplifier. Like so:

I have to say the sound quality is not bad and this is definitely the loudest MP3 plug-in speaker device that I've tried. It runs on 3 AAA batteries and also works on a full can, but the bass sounds better with the empty can. I wasn't really expecting it to be so nifty. Bob actually snatched it to use while working on his garden trellises today. Roo ate all of the Pringles!

Great excuse to do some snacking this summer!

  1. That's so cool! You can also use pringles cans to make a "cantenna" to boost your internet.
