Kettle cooked is better than regular potato chips.
Why would pringles be worse?

Pringles are a totally separate question not limited to pringles themselves but regarding all potato flakes and potato flour.

According to R' Moshe, only real potato chips are oleh al shulchan melachim, not kettle cooked.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I don't know where he said that, but that's what I was told in Yeshiva of Staten Island, and that's why the canteen there only has kettle cooked chips and not regular.

Have you ever seen a potato chip on a dish at a wedding? I have.

It's usually stuck into mashed potatoes.

What makes one a potato chip and the other a kettle cooked potato chip? The only difference is the thickness. The ones you have seen at weddings are more like the kettle ones than the regular ones.

 I would not bring anything from the YSI canteen anyhow. At one point they allowed BBQ chips until I got someone to ask R Reuven that all BBQ chips start off as regular ones and just have spices put on them after. I am not sure that the understanding of the metzius is complete.

My "expertise" (or lack thereof) ends here, maybe one day I'll have a chance to figure out why there's a difference.

Those things are regular potato chips? They definitely do not seem to be so, in my experience. It's akin to the chips served along with fish, not potato chips to snack on. They are two different things.

Is this worse than regular potato chips? Is it worse than kettle cooked?
Pringles/Stacks are formed from fully edible (delicious) mashed potatoes.
Regular potato chips are sorted, washed, peeled, sliced, fried, sorted, then enter a shaker or tumbler for salting or seasoning.

All potato chips are kettle cooked. Do you think they fry them in a sink?

Why can't they just have the rabbi flip the switch?

They can when they're around. If you're interested in a midnight field trip one of these days may I'll shlep you to a Bishul Yisrael run at a major plant
