Pringles Can Inventor Passes Away & His Ashes Are In A Pringles Tube - Per His Written Request



Fredric J. Baur, the ma who invented the now classic Pringles can, passed away last month. The FPT staff honors him for his contribution to snack containers. However, his contribution will not be forgotten as he requested his ashes be put in a Pringles can and be buried in it.

His son made sure his wishes were respected.

RIP Mr Baur.

I have a couple cans in the kitchen right now. I prefer Salt N Vinager over ALL other pringles. I wonder what the burial tube looked like, if it had a label etc....
