Very simple . A sliced potato is sliced directly from a whole potato and nothing more . Diced is NOT sliced to me . It is diced . I realize that can be a bit confusing , but that is how I see it . Sliced potatoes are often made into chips where I live . In fact , Bickels Potato Chip factory was directly across the street for years until Hanover Foods moved the production to elsewhere . Pringles is not a potato chip . Can't say for sure what they are , but it ain't a chip . Possibly vitamin enriched pieces of cardboard might cover it . Potato Chip slices are considerably thinner than regular sliced potatoes for frying .
