There aren’t many certainties in life, but dipping tortilla chips has always been a no brainer. However, New Pringles Tortilla Chips have sparked some serious debate among Canadians — a DIPbate if you will! Available in three bold flavours – Original, Nacho Cheese and Zesty Ranch – Pringles Tortilla Chips are so good that dipping is optional.
Together with TV host Matt Phillips (@mattphilipstv), Pringles is challenging the nation to pick a side and share if they dip ‘em or don’t dip ‘em. Now it’s time for you to join in and pick a side in the world’s first and only Great #PringlesDIPbate.
According to a recent Pringles Tortillas Great DIPbate Survey, dipping is the Canadian way! A strong majority (62%) opt to dip ‘em while only 21% say they don’t dip ‘em. Dipping appears to be more of a young person’s flavour with nearly three quarters (74%) of Canadians aged 18 to 34 favouring the union between chip and dip, compared to roughly half (51%) of those aged 55 and over.
From province to province, there were significant disparities when it comes to the popularity of dipping. Seven in ten British Columbians dip, while less than 50% of Manitobans feel the need to dip their tortilla chips. Contrary to what some might guess, women (65%) are actually slightly more likely to dip than men (59%).
When asked about how they would characterize a dipper, Canadians said that someone who dips is a likeable (70%) free-spirit (70%) who is often the life of the party (45%). On the contrary Canadians say that non-dippers, while still likeable (50%) are worriers (53%) and wallflowers (46%).
New Pringles Tortilla Chips are available at most major grocery stores for a SRP of $2.49.
