I remember a rumor about Pringles going out of business years ago because of too much wasted product since the only chips they used had to be the same size and exact shape to stack and fit in the can and they had to throw the rest away.
You can’t be serious! You didn’t believe that did you? Pringles chips are “formed” from potato pulp, not sliced and deep fried like real chips. They come off a freakin mold. There is zero waste.

I vote A, I think Lays has been around longer.

But my favorite, that I'm eating right at this moment, are Kirkland Krinkle Cut with Himalayan Salt. Dipped in homemade dip consisting of sour cream and Lipton French Onion soup mix.

Anyone like Barrel O'Fun? They were made close to here in Perham, MN. Started up by Tuffy Nelson of Tuffy dog food fame, ha.

Pringles is not a potato chip, by law. It is indeed formed from pulp and fried as a real potato chip, yet is not from a sliced potato. Look at a can of pringles and it will not claim to be a potato chip.

I will go with "A" simply becase that is what I am able to gum up.

Workin' the plan.
I went for A, just because of the shelf space allocated to them in stores.
I think you nailed it for the correct reason, although I personally prefer Ruffles. With clam dip.

Official vote: A.

I cannot purchase an adult-size bag of chips, because I will eat The Whole Thing. In one sitting. Without fail. The fat, salt and mouthfeel light up my brain like a Christmas tree.

I knew it was BS at the time but it didn't stop people from spreading it.

Utz chips one of my favorites. There kettle chips are cooked in lard.
Utz Kettle classics at this time of year when the new potatoes are coming in are the absolute best. Just ordered a case of 11 bags to put in freezer storage. Because we all know that chips are very important to survival lol
