July 7 (UPI) -- Canned potato chip brand Pringles has teamed up with Japan's Nissin Top Ramen for an exclusive ramen-flavored chip.

The collaborative Nissin Top Ramen Chicken Flavor Pringles will be available exclusively at Dollar General stores for a limited time beginning at the end of July.


"Pringles flavorologists worked closely with Nissin to pop the top on a classic noodle dish and bring the fan-favorite Top Ramen Chicken Flavor to life on a Pringles crisp," Pringles said in a press release. "The result - a crisp that tastes like Nissin Top Ramen Chicken Flavor right out of the bowl."

The unusual chips will also retail at a special price of $1.50 per package, in reference to ramen's reputation as a thrifty meal.

Reactions to the news of the chips received mixed reviews on social media, as writer and director Matthew Cherry tweeted asking for reviews of the chips and Precious actress Gabourey Sidibe suggested the collaboration went the wrong way.

"I feel like Pringles-flavored Ramen makes more sense but y'all live ya life how you want it!" Sidibe responded.

Many observers were disgusted at the thought of the ramen-flavored chips, but T-Mobile CEO John Legere tweeted the combination was inevitable.


"It was only a matter of time before this became a thing..." Legere wrote.
