Everything Drops—Uh, Pops—With Pringles

Pringles, those pseudo potato chips that we all turn our noses up at while hoping no one discovers we can easily devour a whole can in a sitting, now comes in a new flavor: Cremains. Fredric J. Baur, the man who came up with the Pringles container and the method of packaging the curved, stacked chips, died May 4. He’d asked that his ashes be buried in one of the cans and his children complied. Some of his remains went into a can — flavor unknown — that was put in his grave, some went into an urn that was buried next to the can, and some went in another urn that was given to his grandson. Hey, they couldn’t taste any worse than pizza flavored Pringles.
