Normal plain chips from a packet. There seems to be a difference of opinion. Shehakol or haadama?February 28, 2016 3:29 am at 3:29 am #1142116

Normal plain chips. Every bracha book says haadama but I’ve some say it’s no longer an original potato so shehakolFebruary 28, 2016 11:35 am at 11:35 am #1142120
Regular potato chips (not Pringles) are hoadama.February 28, 2016 12:30 pm at 12:30 pm #1142121apushatayidParticipant
Herrs potato chips (you can take a factory tour and see it for yourself) are sliced potatoes that are seasoned and fried.February 28, 2016 12:55 pm at 12:55 pm #1142122JosephParticipant
How are Pringles different than other potato chips?February 28, 2016 2:09 pm at 2:09 pm #1142123zahavasdadParticipant
Pringles arent potato chips, they are potato “CRISPS” . Regular potato chips are sliced potatos boiled in oil. Pringles are different, they are potatoes that are smashed into a paste and formed into that shape and then cooked
Notice regular chips are all sorts of shapes and sizes and pringles are always perfectFebruary 28, 2016 2:16 pm at 2:16 pm #1142124nishtdayngesheftParticipant
Regular potato chips are made from slices of potato that are fried (or sometimes baked).
Pringles are made from potatoes (And probably other chazzerei mixed in) that are made into a powder/ or paste such that they do have the appearance of potatoes any more and then that paste is fried or baked into the familiar Pringle chips.February 28, 2016 2:21 pm at 2:21 pm #1142125JosephParticipant
What makes the Pringles halachicly different than potato chips as far as a bracha?February 28, 2016 2:35 pm at 2:35 pm #1142126
I think you make a shehechiyanu on Pringles, because nishdayngesheft and zahavasdad agree about them.February 28, 2016 2:41 pm at 2:41 pm #1142127zahavasdadParticipant

There are many types of chips nowadays. Are you referring to potato chips, corn chips, sorghum chips…? Are they made from sliced potatoes or smashed potatos (like pringles)?
(As an aside, pringles should be hamotzi because once you pop you can’t stop so it is a full meal :). )February 28, 2016 7:12 pm at 7:12 pm #1142129popa_bar_abbaParticipant
OP is asking about wine chips. Otherwise he would have specified potato chips or corn or tortilla or flotilla chips or whatever. You’re all morons for not seeing that, and in particular dy and the brocha on all of you isFebruary 28, 2016 7:26 pm at 7:26 pm #1142130

I think it’s pretty simple.
If the potato is sliced and fried/baked then it’s hoadomo. If it’s pringle style ground and then reshaped and baked/fried then it’s shehakol.
The same goes for corn flakes.
Kugel is the same. If it has recognisable pieces of potato, it’s hoadomo. If it’s too finely grated, then it’s shehakol.March 1, 2016 11:45 pm at 11:45 pm #1142132
I said normal packet of plain chips. When did I say wine chips?!

Why are “plain chips” assumed to be potato chips? Maybe they’re plain corn chips or plain banana chips or or plain bagel chips or plain wine chips.March 2, 2016 1:03 am at 1:03 am #1142134apushatayidParticipant

Shehakol is said on potatoes if they are raw. They couldn’t properly be called chips.March 14, 2016 6:15 pm at 6:15 pm #1142140MammeleParticipant
Most people would probably assume “plain chips” to mean potato chips, but when asking any shaila it’s very important to be specific.
There’s a well known story of the Tzehlimer Rav zt”l no longer paskening shailos by phone after misunderstanding a caller that asked about a piece of “bret” falling into a dish (I’m not sure if it was a pot or bowl) of Pesach soup. The caller was Litvish and asking about actual bread, the Rav thought he meant a piece of wood — and told him to simply take it out of the soup.
In this case it wasn’t a lack of specificity but different Yiddish accents that caused the confusion, but my point is that a more concise question lowers the chance of a misunderstanding leading to a wrong answer — which was most likely the reason for all the tongue-in-cheek replies here — to teach the asker a lesson.
