Make a Turducken out of Pringles This Thanksgiving

The crisp maker’s Friendsgiving Feast Turducken Kit is here to make your triple-fowl holiday dreams come true.

Sure, you could make a turducken for your assembled family and friends this Thanksgiving. (In case you don’t know what that is, it’s a small boneless chicken, stuffed inside a boneless duck, stuffed inside a mostly boneless turkey: TURkey-DUCK-chickEN.) However, between prep and roasting, bringing the bird-within-a-bird-within-a-bird delicacy to ready-to-carve completion will take you an estimated 18 hours. (“Adding music and your favorite beverage will help!” this recipe cheerfully advises.)

For those who don’t have that kind of time to burn and/or the interest in performing this feat of engastration, and yet are still curious about what the legendary triple-fowl dish might taste like, Pringles is presenting a worthy low-key solution: the Friendsgiving Feast Turducken Kit.

Pringles has released Thanksgiving collections for the past two years, but this year, for the first time and for a limited time only, the snack maker is offering a Thanksgiving collection that features not only Turkey-flavored crisps -- as well as crisps that taste like the classic holiday culinary staples Cranberry Sauce, Stuffing and Pumpkin Pie -- but also Pringles crisps that taste like Chicken and Duck, perfect for combining into a crisp-approximation of a Turducken.

Pringles is billing the new Turducken Stack kit as a “triple threat,” promising “three birds” that can be “stacked to satisfy your all-in-one bird craving” as well as “three sides, and more feathered flavor than you ever drooled was possible.”

“We pride ourselves on offering consumers insanely accurate flavors with endless stacking possibilities,” Gareth Maguire, Pringles senior director of marketing, said in a news release. “For our third year, we created the perfect kit for those who are infatuated with the Thanksgiving meat masterpiece that is the almighty Turducken, as well as anyone looking to enjoy a new take on a Friendsgiving feast.”

Pringles Friendsgiving Feast Turducken Kits will be available for $15.99 each starting at noon ET on Thursday, November 7, at You can get only a limited number of them, though, which is sad only until you realize maybe that means you can use that as an excuse not to invite your most irritating relatives to the table. (Sorry, constantly complaining Aunt Sadie and off-color-joke-telling Uncle Fred. There just aren’t enough Pringles Turducken Kits to go around ...)
