Why do crinkle cut chips taste different to regular straight cut oven chips?

Update:

I'm talking about UK chips, that's fries to americans, not the walkers/lays type.

    Because of the way it is baked, and the way it's baked. Straight chips are baked at a lower heat than crinkled. Straight ones cook much faster. Crinkled has ridges so the flavors and salts will be kind of "built in" to the edges and ridges. Crinkle chips ahve more flavor than the straight ones.

    Hope I helped.

    What kind of chips, like french fries? Or like Potato Chips? French Fry: Crinkle Cut Potato Chip: Wavy Cut (same as crinkle) I find straight too plain.

    I think it's because the crinkle cut tend to be crunchier. A crunchy fry is a yummy fry!

    Crinkle cut potato chips are cut thicker and regular ones are cut thinner. Kettle cooked potato chips are much harder and thin cut than regular potato chips.

    The difference is the texture and your tongue finds it more pleasing.
