It's about calories, not fat

This article misses a key point about dietary guidance. The concern should before about kilocalories and fat quality, not total fat content. The baked potato chips are not that much lower in calories. And, when fried with healthy oils, regular potato chips can contribute needed mono and polyunsaturated to the diet (and change the macronutrient content to reduce carbohydrate content). When you also consider the less than optimal sensory characteristics of a baked chip, then, calorie for calorie fried chips are the smarter choice.
