    Yeah, chips are annoying. The manufacturers are helping with that be removing them and just leaving more air.

    I bet they also have a tin full of Danish shortbread biscuits where grandma’s sewing kit should be.

    They keep the air from getting damaged.

    In at least one alternate universe, the potato chips eat you.

    The amount of air in a bag of chips can depend on where the are packaged and sold. A bag packaged/sold at a lower altitude would likely expand (puff up) if you take it to a higher altitude (like up in the mountains) because of less air pressure outside the bag (more air – more air pressure inside the bag).

    Is that barbeque-flavoured air?

    It’s the air in the bag that allows you to have chips in the bag. Otherwise it would just be a bag full of crumbs. But people honestly do complain about the air. smh

    Okay, that’s hilarious!

    Brings to mind the packing material that is just little plastic bags filled with air and connected together. The person that invented those is a genius. Fifty percent of the product was free! ツ

    I hate opening a bag of chips and just finding a lot of air.

    I hate it when you read a comic for a laugh, but it has a grammatical error in it…

    I remember when wise potato chips started doing that in 1973-74 and every inflated bag pop weighed came out to the once of weight listed on each bag.

    That’s what makes processed chips so light.
