So what the heck makes up the remaining 58%
Last week Britain's High Court decided that Pringles were exempt from Britain's value added tax in a decision that will likely save Pringles' makers Proctor & Gamble millions of dollars.
During the case the Pringles lawyers sure painted a tasty picture of Pringles - here is how they describe a Pringle",
"The appearance and taste of a Pringle is not that of a potato crisp. It has none of the irregularity and variety of shape that is always present in crisps. It has a shape not found in nature, being designed and manufactured for stacking"And they called on the court to note that Pringles' colouring and texture,
"A Pringle does not taste like a crisp, or otherwise behave like one"
"betrays its doughy origins"In the end the High Court ruled that Pringles were,
"not made from the potato"So about that 58%?
Potato flour, corn flour, wheat starch and rice flour together with fat and emulsifier, salt and seasoning.
