Procter & Gamble began selling Pringles in 1967 under the name, "Pringle's Newfangled Potato Chips." The name didn't stick but as of 2012, Pringles is the fourth most popular snack behind Lay's, Doritos and Cheetos. Pringles is advertised in the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, and Ireland with the slogan, "Once you pop, the fun don't stop" as well as the original slogan, "Once you pop, you can't stop."
Pringles chips are sold in over 140 countries and due to cultural preferences, the chips come in a very wide variety of regularly produced flavors including, prawn cocktail, wasabi, curry, soft-shelled crab, grilled shrimp, and seaweed, as well as limited addition and seasonal flavors like, ketchup, chili cheese dog, "pizzalicious," Texas BBQ sauce, cheesy fries, onion blossom, mozzarella cheese stick, screamin' dill pickle, Mexican-layered dip, "peppermint white chocolate", cinnamon sugar, and "pumpkin pie spice." Fredric Baur, the creator of the Pringles chips, told his family he wanted his cremated remains to be buried in a Pringles can and his children ended up honoring those wished. Baur's son told TIME magazine, "My siblings and I briefly debated what flavor to use... but I said, 'Look, we need to use the original.'"
