Adult Swim/Kellogg Company(NEW YORK) — The animated hit Rick and Morty has just warped into a new dimension: snack food.

Adult Swim show has partnered with Pringles to celebrate the Super Bowl as well as one of the absurdist show’s most beloved episodes by creating Pickle Rick flavored Pringles.

What’s more, the show’s creators will debut an animated commercial that will air during the second quarter of the Big Game.

Rick and Morty fans are going to be given amazing new opportunities to illustrate their love for this iconic show, thanks to Pringles.”

Pringles Pickle Rick crisps will hit stores beginning in early February.
