Pringles changes logo for first time in 20 years – giving Mr P youthful makeover

Who doesn’t love to snack on a tube of Pringles in front of the telly?

Well now to mark 30 years since the crisp brand launched in the UK, the company has decided to make a huge change.

The firm is jazzing up its logo for the first time in 20 years, giving the mascot “Mr P” a well-deserved makeover in the process.

Following the transformation, Mr P (known as Julius Pringles) loses his hair as he sports a modern emoji-style look.

He has bold eyebrows and even a fancy new red bow tie to celebrate the occasion.

And it’s not just the logo that’ll have a “glow-up”, the cans have been given a fresh new look, with brighter and bolder packaging.

Mr P will look slightly different than usual

The original Mr P was designed by Arch Drummond in New York back in 1967.

Since then, the moustached icon has become famous all over the globe and even starred in an episode of The Simpsons once.

Mr P has had six new looks to keep in tune with the times since the 60s.

Shoppers can get their claws on the rebranded cans across stores nationwide later this month.

Over the years, there have been more than 102 different Pringles flavours, including Pigs in Blankets, Mint Choc and Sweet Cinnamon.

The most-loved flavour has been Sour Cream and Onion, followed by Original, Texas BBQ, Salt and Vinegar and Prawn Cocktail.

Florence Kayll, from Pringles UK, said: “After being Pringles’ loyal mascot for many years, Mr. P has had a well-deserved makeover, in what is his boldest look yet.

“Mr P’s hair may now be gone but he’s looking more youthful than ever with striking new eyebrows and is of course still sporting his famous, stylish moustache as he celebrates his 30th birthday in the UK.

“While Mr. P and the can design have both undergone a transformation, Brits can be confident that there are no changes to the amazing flavour and crunch found inside every Pringles can.”
