Frito-Lay Gets A For Effort, but…

I don’t like Sun Chips, but my girlfriend enjoys devouring the tasty chips.  I recently noticed a change in my local Safeway in which the traditional Sun Chips bag has been replaced with the “world’s first 100% compostable chip package.”


I’m all for companies becoming eco-friendly, and a 100% compostable chip bag is excellent, but these bags seem to be much louder than regular bags.  I truly applaud Frito-Lay for making steps to go green, but my girlfriend actually woke me up from an afternoon nap while opening a new bag.

Has anyone else noticed this, or am I just imagining things?  Kudos to Frito-Lay for offering a bag that doesn’t need to end up in a landfill, but it’s time to find a way to dampen all of this noise.

Sun Chips – Original (Frito Lay)
Serving Size: 1 oz package, Calories: 140, Fat: 6g, Carbs: 19g, Protein: 2g

Classic Potato Chips (Lay’s)
Serving Size: 1 oz (28g / 15 chips), Calories: 150, Fat: 10g, Carbs: 15g, Protein: 2g

Editors note:The Sun chips are not a big calorie saver but if you are going to chow down on a bag of chips, every junk calorie saved is good. Mike should stop his whining about the noise and appreciate the environmental impact of the new bags.
