But Are They Food...?

Britain’s Court of Appeal ruled that, contrary to the argument of their maker,
Procter & Gamble, Pringles contain enough potato to be defined as crisps
(chips), and are therefore not exempt from value-added tax.
Did you follow that? The manufacturer, not some group of bearded daisy-haired organic nature-minded parents, went to court to claim that Pringles potato chips contain no potatoes. Oh yes they do, said the court, and you've gotta pay your potato-taxes.
