Pringles is a brand of potato and wheat-based stackable snack chips, owned by the Kellogg Company.

The snack was originally developed by Procter & Gamble (P&G), who first sold the product in 1967 - creating the stackable chips product category. Proctor and Gamble dates the launch as October 1968.

According to Proctor and Gamble, the "Pringles" name came about in the late 1960s, when the brand made a list of street names from a Cincinnati phone book that began with "P." Pringle Avenue in Finneytown (a Cincinnati suburb) was available for trademark, and its sound appealed to the brand.

The first Pringles were packaged in a tall, cylindrical metal can with a red wrapper. US National expansion was in May 1975. In 1991, Pringles were sold for the first time outside North America. Currently Pringles are sold in over 140 countries and Pringles are available in more than 100 different flavours.

P&G sold the brand to Kellogg's in 2012.

For fiscal 2014, Kellogg's reported a snacks sales of USD 6.5 Billion.

Pringles are manufactured in five factories around the world: Jackson, Tennessee; Mechelen, Belgium; Johor Malaysia; Kutno, Poland and Fujian, China.
