Procter&Gamble Vs Kellogg

The history of Pringles began when P&G thought to make a kind of chip which did not break and is uniform in shape and flavor during 1956. Chemists spent around 2 years inventing. And a special can was made. The feature of that was it can be used to store and market the product, to make it unbreakable.

This was the reason that they came up with an aluminium-coated and aerodynamic enough, tabular can.

On 21 Dec-1976 the patent for Pringles is described as a potato chip dough. Mainly prepared from cooked potatoes  and water.

Nearly after a decade of its development. Pringles were released to the public in 1967.
