In Britain and Ireland potato chips are known as 'potato crisps' or simply 'crisps'; in those countries 'potato chips' or 'chips' are a slightly thicker version of what in the US are known as French fries. See chip shop.
- In North America, Pringles are not marketed as potato chips, but rather "potato crisps". This is a food labeling requirement, since Pringles are made from a dough rather than from sliced fresh potatoes. See http://www.pringles.com/pages/index.shtml
