Food For Thought 6.2.09

"While in many respects [Pringles] are different from potato crisps and so they are near the borderline, they are sufficiently similar to satisfy that test." (Britain's Value Added Tax and Duties Tribunal, presenting their case that Pringles are indeed potato chips. Procter & Gamble UK, makers of the chips--crisps in England--argued the brand isn't a potato chip, as it contains only 40 percent potato flour. Interesting--don't they market them as potato chips over here? Britain's Supreme Court of Judicature decided against P & G, reversing a lower court decision, which had reversed an even lower court decision. At stake? $160 million in taxes. As quoted by the New York Times.)
