A viral moment out of a Walmart parking lot in Texas has led to an amazing drinking accessory, just in time for spring. Buzz60’s Holly Morgan’s got the details.
They say that any publicity is good publicity, and that’s a reality Pringles has been dealing with for three weeks now. On January 11, a woman was reportedly banned from a Walmart in part because she was drinking wine out of a Pringles can in the parking lot. Needless to say, the story captured the nation’s attention, so while officially Pringles has been pushing its big Super Bowl ad featuring a depressed smart speaker (guys, do Pringles a solid and try out “flavor stacking”), the wine-out-of-a-Pringles-can story was so viral that the brand can’t seem to shake its newfound association.
To wit, an Etsy user called The Cup Artist has also gone viral for selling Pringle “wine tumblers” complete with a lid and a straw to make consuming wine out of a Pringles canister that much easier. “Slim 20 oz tumbler Customized with the Pringles logo and Custom nutrition label,” the description states. “Great for your friends or moms that endure long trips in Walmart and need to drink wine from a Pringles can.”
