How Many Pringles are in a Serving?

As with most foods and especially those higher in fat and sugar, there’s generally a recommended serving amount.

The recommended amount of Pringles per serving is 30g (1.1oz), which means that in a standard 200g (7oz) can there are around six and a half servings. A 30g (1.1oz) serving of Pringles contains around 14 individual crisps/chips.

How Much Does One Pringle Weigh?

I weighed a number of individual Pringles from a standard pack, including original and flavored using precise scales and I found the following:

The average individual Pringle chip taken from a standard pack weighs just over 2g at 2.2g (0.08oz).

If you want to be very precise, the weights do fluctuate very slightly by one or two 0.01g and flavored Pringles weighed in slightly higher at an average of 2.4g, but either way, if you’re rounding the figure to the nearest gram it would be 2g.

How Many Pringles are in a Tube/Can?

To work out weights and servings it can be useful to know how many items are in a full pack.

I counted all of the Pringle Chips in a 200g (7oz) tube and it contained 96 Pringles in total which is equal to 6.7 servings of 30g.

This figure will vary for different pack sizes, but a quick way to work out an average figure is by dividing the pack weight by the individual pack weight. For example, an average standard Pringle weighs 2.2g and the pack weighs 160g, so this would mean the pack should contain around 73 chips.

Pringle Serving Sizes and Weights

The chart below shows various serving sizes and how much the specific serving should weigh based on that amount.

To keep things simple, I’ve based this on standard chips weighing an average of 2.2g which are available in various flavors from most stores. I’ve also rounded the number of chips to the nearest whole number.
