Not a whole lot of potatoes...

Are you ready for it? Well, it turns out that Pringles aren’t primarily made of potatoes. That’s right. At one point, the company even argued that they shouldn’t even be considered potato chips. Why did they bother to point out their lack of potato content? Let us tell you! In the UK, snacks aren’t taxed because they’re viewed as a necessity, whereas potato chips are looked at as a luxury.

Crazy, right? They don’t cut a potato and process it into the standard chip shape, they combine these main ingredients and press it into the perfect shape.
