    Bowl, they are too awkward to get out of a tube, especially is you're sharing.

    I personally would put one of 3 pots in posh table ware for guests to share, one hiding in kitchen for munching in between courses, coffees, whatever. and one for just scoffing for the sake of it, where i don't have to share :)

    argh! d*mn you Lewis - I'm now craving Pringles and I'm MEANT TO BE LOSING WEIGHT!!

    I think I'd put them in a bowl but I'd do it in front of the guests so they knew exactly what they were getting flavour wise, some flavours of Pringles I really can't stand and others are absolutely delicous !
    If you don't like what I say slap me around with a large trout and PM me to tell me why.

    Definitely in a bowl, along with some dips and crudites for those who are trying to watch their weight :beer:

    I must have a filthy mind, when I saw the title I was thinking it was going to be in the same line of car keys in the bowl :)
    I would leave them in the tube, less washing up.
