While some viral stories evolve into memes, .gifs or Autotune the News songs, the unidentified woman spawned a cottage industry for one artisan, who has made a Pringles can wine tumbler.

Celeste Powers, owner of The Cup Artist, offers the 20-ounce beverage conveyance in a variety of Pringles flavors for fans of the intoxicating story.

"When the Pringles/wine article ran, I couldn't help but laugh. You really can see and experience it all at Walmart," Powers told KDFW. "I felt bad when Walmart banned her, because we've all been there, right?"

As a thank-you for the inspiration, Powers is offering the unidentified imbiber a complimentary tumbler. 

"We'd love to send her one if she's not too ashamed by her newfound fame," Powers told KDFW. "Also, maybe she will just enjoy coffee in it on her next shopping adventure."
