In the great canon of chips, Pringles hold a very special place. Not quite potato chips, but not tortilla chips or anything else really, they reside in a class all their own. First appearing in the 1960s, they've stood the test of time, thanks to their incredibly satisfying and craveable crunch, and also, their seemingly endless array of flavors.

From the old school classics (ahem, Sour Cream & Onion) to the new ones we never saw coming (Top Ramen Chicken, anyone?), the amount of Pringles flavors around the world are enough to keep any snacker happy. So, in honor of the latest in flavor design, Nashville Hot Chicken — which is being released today — we took it upon ourselves to try as many of the flavors available in the U.S. as possible, because, as they say, "once you pop..." well, you know how it goes.

Interestingly, there were some surprises along the way, both unexpected (we're looking at you, baked potato-flavored potato chips) and highly expected (a.k.a. the runner-up and winner), but the moral of this story is that WE LOVE PRINGLES. We just love certain ones more than others.

Here's our definitive ranking of the 22 Pringles flavors we tasted, tested, and duck-lipped:
