Whatever you do, just don't call Pringles potato chips. That's because a British judge has ruled in a tax dispute that Procter & Gamble's snacks "don't look like a chip, don't feel like a chip, and don't taste like a chip."
Heck, Pringles isn't even "made from potato" (even though it is) for tax purposes:
Potato chips ``give a sharply crunchy sensation under the tooth and have to be broken down into jagged pieces when chewed,'' the Cincinnati-based company's lawyers argued. ``It is totally different with a Pringle, indeed a Pringle is designed to melt down on the tongue.''
Warren agreed. Pringles aren't ``made from the potato'' for the purposes of the tax office's exemption, he said. He didn't say what Pringles are, other than that they're tax-exempt.
Whatever they are, you can still be buried a can of Pringles!
