Delighted to read this morning that Pringles lost a court case in which they were trying to avoid paying VAT, and in the process revealed what we suspected all along: they're fucking revolting.
After years of marketing, you may have been under the impressions that Pringles were a particularly moreish type of potato crisp. Well now the makers have strenuously argued that they're not - because they're only 42% potato. 33% of a Pringle is flour and fat.
They lost, and the court thinks they are a potato crisp (how did they reach that conclusion)? So Pringles now face paying back £100m in VAT. But after these revelations, they may not have this problem in future - would YOU buy them again knowing what you know now? No sales = no VAT. Everyone's happy.
