American potato chip brand Pringles announced an upcoming Rick & Morty-themed flavour in partnership with Adult Swim and the Super Bowl on Wednesday.

The flavour, called “Pickle Rick,” is inspired by a 2017 episode from Season 3 of the animated show, according to Pringles.

In the episode, Rick — Morty’s alcoholic, scientist grandfather — intentionally turns himself into a pickle in order to avoid going to a family therapy session. He winds up going on a bizarrely violent adventure after a cat launches him into the street and he’s dragged down to the sewers.

What the potato chip will taste like is unclear, however the product will be sold in a green can.

Jill King, senior vice-president of marketing and partnerships for Adult Swim, confirmed to Global News that the release of the salty treat will coincide with a brand-new, 30-second Rick & Morty TV spot, which will premiere during the second quarter of Superbowl LIV on Feb. 2, 2020.

After the news was revealed, avid potato chip connoisseurs and Rick & Morty fans alike took to social media to share their excitement.
