‘Smoky Shores,’ the least expensive offering, contains trout roe, or trout eggs, instead of Caviar. Trout roe is similar to sturgeon Caviar and eaten the same way, but the eggs are golden orange in color and larger than sturgeon eggs. While the flavor is usually less fishy than Caviar, ‘Smoky Shores’ trout roe is described as smoked.
‘The Salt of the Sea’ kit is made from the eggs of white sturgeon, which are often found between Alaska and Baja California in North America. Usually described as buttery or nutty, they’re often suggested as a good starting point for those unfamiliar with Caviar, because it’s milder in flavor.
Caviar has long been associated with wealth and exclusivity, with one type, eggs from the beluga sturgeon, costing as much as $3,500 per pound, wherearsPringles are available from gas stations to grocery stores for between $2 and $3 a can. While some “The Real Housewives of New York City” viewers weren’t down with the combination of potato chips and Caviar, others thought it made complete sense. “Anyone who can afford Caviar on the regular knows that it’s incredible paired with anything potatoes including chips!” commented one Redditor. This is Pringles and The Caviar Co.’s second collaboration, with the companies joining to serve chips, sour cream, and Kaluga Hybrid Caviar at a Coachella party earlier this year.
