This Texas Bar Serves What? Wine in a Pringles Can

By  | 


The woman who was banned from a Texas Walmart following a motorized shopping cart cruise around their parking lot while drinking wine from a Pringles can has become the latest viral news to hit social media circles. For argument’s sake, let’s just say you’ve heard of it. Well, it seems that she has a following, of sorts – those who are for the woman believe she was most likely driven to this point by the latest disappointments of the day, and found her actions to be inspiring in a weird way. In other words, they could relate. And the humor hasn’t been lost on anyone. So many have taken the opportunity to try her vessel of choice (drinking wine from a Pringles can) that a Houston Bar has chosen to start serving boxed Merlot and Chablis in the same fashion.

The Branch has posted to its Facebook page that it will be serving the wine in mini cans of Pringles, “…pinkies out…” The post is receiving increasing amounts of attention (at the time this article was written, it had just over 135 shares), and the humorous comments that readers provided were certainly in tune with the theme. “But, do we get to keep the cup?” asked one curious commenter, and, “Scooter rides around the parking lot included?” asked another. Shared with a meme that said, “I don’t always drink wine but when I do it’s out of a Pringles can,” the business definitely generated some uptake!

Eater Houston and Austin360 picked up the story, generating interest that (shocked as you may be) wasn’t already there… I mean, who hasn’t tried this at home already?! At a cost of $3, The Branch was offering its wine served out of original flavor Pringles cans (despite the fact that so many of the popular chip flavors would pair nicely). There’s been no comment from Pringles on the shot in the arm this woman has most likely generated for their company, and Walmart has been fairly tight-lipped about it as well. The original scooter-driving, wine-drinking, Pringles can queen of our hearts was not arrested according to the news out of Wichita Falls, Texas. I’ll drink to that.
