Once You Pop, You'll Wish You Hadn't: Iconic Pringles Can Designer Buried In Pringles Can

June 3, 2008


Fredric J. Baur was responsible for designing the Pringles potato crisp packaging system commonly referred to by non-jargonists as the Pringles can. But alas, Baur's expiration date passed in May and he requested his family bury a portion of his ashes in one of the cans he was so proud of. He was 89. Still no word if he specifically asked for a Sour Cream & Onion can, but I think we can all agree that's the best flavor.

R.I.P. Fredric Baur, I hope you're riding that great hyperbolic paraboloid saddle shaped chip in the sky
