And i have seen kettle CRISPS, on an American show so i know its a real thing. SIlly ass yanks.


Getting your info from a TV show, that's smart.

Also I find the fact that you think it is weird that there would be something called kettle crisps here when we call it chips odd when you have something called kettle chips that you call crisps. Hypocritical much?

Ah, up north, that explains it really. Those people are idiots and barely count as American, that is why they have a brand called crisps they want to be euros. You can have them if you want them SGM.

Wowowow, you call chips (as in fish and chips, as in wedges without skin and way to much seasoning, etc) fries?


FRIES?

Also, the poll is tied, lets see how they pull this off Cotton.
It's going to be a crispy draw!

Crisps are called because they're, well, crispy. You can't call all chips French Fries because you can get oven chips which you don't fry - you put them in the oven. The thin fried chips you get at McDonald's I might call French Fries, but big fat chips you get at the Fish 'n' Chip shop are definitely chips.

Of course, to further muddy the waters, there's a brand of crisps called French Fries...

And I'm from England. :D

Actually, those some people do call chips here. But they are officially known as steak fries for whatever reason.

The only time those get called chips is if they are coming with fish as in the Brit dish Fish 'n' Chips. Nobody orders Steak 'n' Chips, but since the Brits named their dish we use that name for the same thing, when it is in the same style. I like a good Fish 'n' Chips.

Did you know that several years ago, the company who make Pringles crisps tried to argue that their crisps - due to the unique texture and shape - should be classified as a cake for (lower) UK tax purposes? I can't remember if they were successful or not, though I have a feeling that they were.

Don't worry about it too much, fellow Europe-rs; in five years' time the European Union will be sure to have passed some directive, by which calling fried processed universal-shaped potato pieces anything else will be punishable by a hefty fine.
