American chip brand Pringles has just added two new flavours to its range – and the tasty treats couldn’t be more Australian.
The potato chip brand has created two new flavours – a delicious take on Australia’s favourite pub food and a popular cafe meal.
The limited-edition ‘local favourites’ range, which retails for $4 each, includes grilled cheese toastie and chicken ‘schnitty’. The word ‘schnitty’ is slang for chicken schnitzel in Australia.

News of the new chip flavours has caused social media to go into overdrive, especially after Pringle’s Down Under shared a post to its Facebook page.
The post, which includes a photo of the chips and the caption ‘dreams do come true’, has almost 4,000 reactions and more than 12,000 people have left comments.
‘Sooooo good and so addictive both flavours, thanks Mr or Mrs Pringle!’ one said.
Another said: ‘Had both of these already and all I have to say is yummmmm (sic) the schnitty one is omg delish (sic).’
‘Both are really good. Especially the grilled cheese toastie,’ one said.
One person went as far as to make the bold claim, the chip company had devised two flavours that were ‘the most Aussie ever’.

In addition to scores of positive remarks, some said they hoped the chip creators might consider going a step further with the schnitzel flavour.
‘Chicken schnitty maybe get fancy and but some tomato sauce on it and turn it into a parmigiana,’ said one.
‘Where’s the Parma flavour?’ Asked one. ‘Shoulda (sic) made it parmy.’
A few eagle-eyed commenters also had a thing or two to say about the wording of the schnitzel flavour.
‘I’ve never heard anyone call a schnitzel a schnitty. Our language is definitely devolving,’ said one.
