Need some extra cash—$10,000, maybe? 

Then get your taste buds ready. For the first time, Pringles is releasing a Mystery Flavor in the United States, and if you guess what it is, you could win $10,000.  

Through July 30, you can pick up a can of Mystery Flavor Pringles at Walgreens (they're available there exclusively) and carefully consider their taste. When you're ready to submit a flavor guess, register for the Kellogg's Family Rewards program, then upload a photo of your Mystery Flavor receipt and your guess to the site. Each receipt earns you one entry, and you can submit one guess per day. You may also enter through the no-purchase method detailed in the official rules.

Submissions are open through August 13, 2019. Anyone who guesses correctly will be placed in a pool. On August 15, one winner will be selected in a random drawing.

“The flavor was especially fun to develop, because it needs to be spot on in order for fans to guess the taste,” said Becky Wolfe, Pringles product development scientist in a press release.

We got our hands on one of the mystery cans, and we're pretty much stumped. Our staff tasted cheese and bacon flavors, with maybe a hint of sour cream. Someone guessed loaded baked potato, which seemed possible but too simple.

Whatever it ends up being, it's apt to be highly specific. In Pringles' mystery contest last year, the flavor was Seven Layer Dip. The company is no stranger to creating wacky, flavor-packed chips, either. Previous creations include Top Ramen Chicken, Sweet Chili Tango, and Thanksgiving Creamed Corn.

In other words, the possibilities are wide open. Read the full contest rules here, and get to the nearest Walgreens pronto!

May the best buds win.
