Pringles chips, sold in stores since 1968, are essentially made from dried potato flakes then shaped, stacked and stored in an airtight canister, which keeps the chips or "crisps" fresh. It takes three to four processed potatoes to pack a Pringles can. If you have ever wondered how many crisps are in a canister, the answer is as difficult to come by as knowing how many potato chips are in a bag. Pringles are sold by weight, so the number of crisps can vary from can to can.
