For the first time in two decades, Pringles updated its can with a fresh, modern look to appeal to consumers.
BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Dec. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- 2020 has been the year we've all learned to adjust to change and the Pringles® brand and its iconic mascot, Mr. Pringle, is no exception. For the first time in 20 years, Pringles has updated its unmistakable can with a fresh, new look that features bold hues and a clean design, highlighting the crisps' inventive flavors and unique, stackable shape.
To complement the can's new look, Pringles also streamlined its mustachioed mascot to better highlight the flavors in every can and showcase his new range of emotions to match. With a sleeker look including a more dynamic mustache, sharper bow tie, sparkling eyes and expressive eyebrows, Mr. P's "Glow Up" puts the focus on the irresistible taste in every Pringles crisp and stack.
"We spent the last two years in research and design to create a modern look for the cans and Mr. P's style that reflects the bold flavor in every Pringles crisp and stack," said Gareth Maguire, senior director of marketing for Pringles. "While the look may be new on the outside, I'm proud to say that it doesn't change the irresistible taste that's always been on the inside of every Pringles can and celebrates the unique snacking experience that is part of every bite."
Who better to introduce us to this new look than Victor Cruz, America's football champion, fashion-loving, "glow up" king? Pringles partnered with Cruz to celebrate the brand evolution and help launch a national sweepstakes giving fans the chance to win their own end of 2020 "glow up" - just in time for the holidays.
"Just like Mr. P, I've spent the past few years evolving – from football champion to entertainment personality with a passion for style," said Victor Cruz. "I've always been a fan of the brand's bold taste, and the Pringles brand refresh matches the inventive flavors I know and love. I think the 'Get Fresh As Mr. P' sweepstakes is the perfect way to kickstart the new year and give yourself that personal "Glow Up," whatever that may mean for you."
Starting today, fans can head to Twitter and enter for the chance to win $1,500 along with a selection of Pringles products featuring the new brand look. To enter, fans must tweet their favorite Pringles flavor with the hashtag #FreshAsMrPEntry for a chance to win.
