Dear Jerry
The SA Food Tables do not list the nutritive content of vegetable crisps, so I am not sure if they don't also have a high fat content like potato crisps. Potato crisps contain 2300 kJ and 36 g of fat per 100g. It is quite possible that any vegetable that is deep-fried and then drained and dried will have a similar energy and fat content. So eat all crisps (veg and potato) in moderation.
