Pringles were first sold in the United States in October of 1968 and were originally known as "Pringle's Newfangled Potato Chips", but the name was changed for introduction to the national market. Procter & Gamble chose the Pringles name from a Cincinnati telephone book, selecting Pringle Avenue in Finneytown, Ohio for its pleasing sound.

According to the patent , Pringles were invented by Alexander Liepa of Montgomery, Ohio. Science Fiction and Fantasy author Gene Wolfe developed the machine that cooks them. Fred Baur, who designed the packaging system, requested that a portion of his ashes be buried in one of the iconic cans. His family granted the request.

The famous logo is a stylized representation of a man with a large moustache and parted bangs (until 2001, the man, still commonly known as "Julius Pringles", had eyebrows and his bow tie housed the product name.) The crisps are made to a uniform size and a hyperbolic paraboloid saddle shape, so that they stack very efficiently within the container, rather than being packaged loosely in a bag.
