The designer of the Pringles crisp tube has died and had his remains buried in one of the containers. The packaging was his "proudest accomplishment" Dr Fredric J. Baur, who was 89, had told his family to ensure his final resting place was the inside of one of his most famous creations. They honoured his request by having his ashes buried in a Pringles tube and a more conventional urn for the overflow at Arlington Memorial Gardens in Cincinnati, Ohio. Dr Baur, who was a retired chemist and food storage technician at Pringles owners Procter and Gamble, patented the design for the saddle-shaped crisps vertical container in 1970. His daughter Linda told the Cincinnati Enquirer that the packaging was his proudest accomplishment. He also invented several other products, including a freeze-dried ice cream, which didnt enjoy as much success. His son Lawrence Baur told the Enquirer: Basically, what you did, you added milk to it, put it in the freezer and you had ice cream. That was another one he was proud of but just never went anywhere.
