Pringles not potato chips

Snicker: British judge rules that Pringles aren't potato chips:

Warren agreed. Pringles aren't "made from the potato" for the purposes of the tax exemption, he said. He didn't say what Pringles are, other than that they're tax-exempt.

Via SE. If they're not potato, what are they? Some say Pringles are a communist plot:

All the uniform chips are put into a RED can with a Stalin look-alike on the package and you are going to question this? How can one not see the blatant intention to subvert the American people nearly four decades after it was initiated?

The first ingredient listed on the package is "dried potato", however since they're actually sort of mushed into a potato dough and then baked instead of just sliced and deep-fried, I can only assume they're not considered a "potato chip" since they're actually "baked potato dough". (WSJ)
