Pringles potato chips, seriously, how good are they? They come in a perfectly crispy stack, full of flavor, stored in the iconic Pringles can and really are the ultimate snack for people who want a fun, yummy nibble that hits the spot.

So here is some good news - Pringles decided to innovate with a new delicious flavor that you’re going to be mad about… Chili & Sour Cream! Can you imagine how incredible this new flavor is going to be? A most popular chili flavor with an exciting touch of that famous Pringles  Sour Cream. Makes your mouth water already, doesn’t it?

Your job is to get the word out and make sure that everyone tastes this awesome potato chip! You need to convince everyone with a mouth to give this incredibly tasty, new snack a try, through creativity and originality. 

Creative Challenge

Knock us off our feet with incredibly creative and interesting print ad that convinces snackers everywhere to try the new and amazing Pringles flavor - Chili & Sour Cream because it is the ultimate premium taste and fun!

Your print ad should connect with young adults (18-30) that are looking for the best taste and crunchiness from their snack. They are fun loving, outgoing and social. They are looking for excitement in the lives, to be amused, to laugh, to be involved in trends and to basically have a good time. Think of ways you can express this new original flavor so that they will be drooling and craving it. 

Your ad must be very surprising. Make a visual and copy that would get people to notice the new flavor, crave it and TRY IT.

When you submit your print ad, please answer the following questions in a second, separate page:

  1. What is the main idea of your entry?
  2. How does your ad encourage people to try the new flavor?
  3. What makes your entry different from regular ads for potato chips?
  4. Why would your ad connect with 18-34 young adults?


The examples are only provided to illustrate our expectations. Please do not use them literally in your submission or it will be rejected.

Think of yourself. What would you tell yourself that would convince you the new flavor is a “MUST TRY”? You need to use key images and text (if you want) that tell a compelling story about the new flavor.

A good idea could be: a visual showing a small car accident between chili's convertible and sour cream's jeep. Even though they crashed, they're really happy.

Copy: some mixes should happen. Rationale: the combination of both flavors create an amazing new taste that is even better than each flavor by itself, so it's a good thing that they meet (even in a bad scenario).

Avoid using cliché like this:

Bad idea - anything unexciting and boring An ad with a picture of Pringle’s sour cream and chili surrounded by fire to show the heat – anything boring that we’ve all seen a million times before that doesn’t truly create craving and interest.
