Chip-maker giving away ‘free’ smartphone speakers


Are you more interested in spending your hard-earned cash on junk food than on buying new technology? Well, here comes an offer that could be right up your street.


Almost-potato chip-maker Pringles has released a limited edition speaker that people can send away for when they buy two promotional cans of its product.

To get speakers, Pringles buyers need to visit the Pringles website and enter the batch codes found on the bottom of each can.

The speakers are not exactly “free” though – a £3 postage fee applies.

The speakers connect to a smartphone, and can also be linked together.

Pringles chips only contain about 42 per cent potato. The remaining ingredients include wheat starch, flour, vegetable oils, emulsifier, salt, seasoning, maltodextrin, dextrose, monosodium glutamate, disodium inosinate, disodium guanylate, sodium caseinate, modified food starch, monoglyceride and diglyceride, yeast extract, natural and artificial flavors, malted barley flour and wheat bran.
