An “extremely rare folded” Pringle has been put up on eBay for £650 and, unlike your usual Pringle, this particular crisp folds back on itself at one end.

The hopeful seller believes the crisp’s uniqueness – which probably comes from a manufacturing defect – is worth the hefty price tag.

The Original salted Pringle does not expire until 2023 eBay

However, a regular 200g tube of Pringles, containing roughly 100 of these crisps, can be purchased for about £2.50 at most retailers.

While the Original salted Pringle does not expire until January 2023, it does have a small crack on the extra flap which could potentially cause the crisp to snap – meaning it would ultimately be worthless.

For anyone who is super keen on buying the Pringle but cannot afford it, there is a payment option that allows buyers to pay £31 a month over two years, making the final cost £744 – almost £100 more than the original price.

The purchase also includes a £3.20 delivery charge from Grantham, Lincolnshire to wherever the lucky buyer lives.

Pringles have been a popular party snack in the UK for years. They’ve also long been a part of the festive season with limited editions launched at Christmas, including a honey glazed ham flavour.
