Wide Pringle tubes

Those last few are buggers to get at...
  [vote for,

Pringle tubes should be wider so you can actually get your hand in there...naturally, the pringles would have to be a bit bigger too.

Pringles for big hands http://www.halfbake...20for_20big_20hands
Clearly there is a problem. [waugsqueke, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]


       That board with a nail in it may have defeated us today, but the humans won't stop there. They'll build bigger boards with bigger nails and soon they'll build a board with a nail in it so big it will destroy them all!! Ha ha ha ha.....

       Easy way:
Put lid on Pringles can
Shake vigorously
Remove lid
Dump contents into mouth

       this final product = same problem

       What same problem??
simonj, Dec 16 2003

       Tubes are bigger and the chips are bigger.. Seems to me your just enlarging the whole package. Perhaps the tilt and tap method would work better
v0rtexx, Dec 16 2003

       But don't you see?? Wider tubes mean big hands can fit in there!!! (And reach all the way to the end!)
simonj, Dec 16 2003

       true... But that would defy the whole purpose of eating pringles. That is having a perfect chip everytime. No chip bits. A bigger tube will give more room for the chips to smash on the sides and break
v0rtexx, Dec 16 2003

       okay.. looking at your question in a different context and I see your idea.. I was looking at your suggestion as getting your whole hand around a single chip. Sorry, it's almost 3am. A little woozy

       simonj, what did the hospital say when you arrived at the emergency room with a pringles tube stuck on the end of your arm?
kropotkin, Dec 16 2003

       Make the only opening a slot at one end of the curved surface to remove chips one-by-one.   

       The bigger tube idea was mentioned by Shz in waugs' link.

       (a) Take the pringles tube and, using your craft knife, cut it along its entire length. Remove both ends. Split tube wide open. Tip entire contents into a wide bowl. Scoff the lot. Problem solved. Or
(b) Stop buying pringles and buy normal crisps (chips) instead. Or
(c) Make friends with somebody with small hands.

       Now were talking [UB]!. Well, lisping anyway.

Is the Gerbil still in there?
thumbwax, Dec 16 2003

       Have a spring feed device at the bottom of the tube that gently pushes up the Pringles.
oneoffdave, Dec 16 2003

       Sometimes, you just have to let those last chips go, bro.

Laughing ... too ... much ... can't see through the water.

       Once the Pringle think they are safe at the bottom suddenly open the second lid and they drop right into your hand. ... What, your tube doesn't have a lid at each end? You may want to check the expiration date!
