THE GRUBDOWN

As they do from time to time, Pringles are back to bless us with interesting new flavors because, as the saying goes, once you pop, you can’t just stop — and that goes for churning out new flavors too.

The new Pringles flavor that’s getting some buzz nowadays is ketchup. Yes, ketchup. Ketchup is a condiment more than an all-encompassing flavor profile, but that’s never really stopped people from making buffalo or barbecue-sauce flavored chips, right?

While the idea of ketchup chips might seem weird, it’s actually not. In other countries outside the U.S., they’re actually quite popular. And when you think about what ketchup chips actually are — the merging of ketchup and potatoes — you realize it’s basically a crispier version of French fries.

Are these worth your time/money/calorie count? That probably depends on your opinions of ketchup, more specifically ketchup flavoring. These aren’t bad, but we’re also pretty sure they’re not for everybody.

 

CHIEF OF THE MONTH

Sigur Ros, the ethereal Icelandic band, has made everything it does a lot more chill — which is saying something because, again, they’re from Iceland. The band teamed up with edibles maker Lord Jones to drop its own marijuana candy. Because what’s a band in 2017 if it doesn’t have its own marijuana brand, right?

They’re called the Wild Sigurberry and they’re gum drop-style candies that actually draw inspiration from Iceland. The candies are infused with wild strawberries, blueberries and blackberries, all of which are popular in Iceland. The candies come in THC and CBD versions. The CBD version are being sold nationwide and the THC versions are being sold in select dispensaries in California. You can hit up lordjones.com for more details.

 

THE QUOTE YOU MUST READ

From a Yahoo News investigation about marijuana use in American families:

“What’s clear from the Yahoo News/Marist Poll is that pot is now a bigger part of family life than ever before. Kids aren’t hiding it from their parents as much as they used to. Many parents aren’t even hiding it from their kids.

“Already nearly half — 47 percent — of user parents (people who use the drug at least once or twice a year) say they have consumed marijuana in front of their (usually adult) children, shared it with them or done both. And more than one in four users say they’ve consumed marijuana in front of or with their own parents.” — Andrew Romano, Yahoo News

 

DID YOU KNOW?

Wiz Khalifa wants you play the 2017 version of “Farmville” — except there’s one big difference, and that difference is pot. On 420, the toke-happy rapper released his own smartphone game titled “Wiz Khalifa’s Weed Farm.” As the name suggests, the game is all about growing marijuana and building a business. Looking for a review? Khalifa himself says, “It’s a fun game and I play it all the time. Better than Pokémon!” Well then.
