I just open a bag of Heinz ketchup flavor of chips and half of the bag was air.
I swear im going to go buy Pringles only in future. At least the can is full.

I read back of bag serving size 8, back of Pringles 6? weird.

Why is it so hard to find Ketchup flavor chips. I love them

Chips are sold by weight, so you're not getting ripped off. The extra air acts like a shock absorber so when you open it you don't get a bag of crumbs.

It sold by Herr Brand. Herr's Ketchup Chips 8.3 Ounce Bag
I use to find them in one of my previous employers vending machine. Now it seems it only sold during summer and is on a pallet in middle of one of the aisles, but never as common item any store to carry. So I stock up since I doubt it is replenish by next grocery shop.

Far as bag ok it sold by weight but it frustrating after you open the bag your left with half bag of chips. I remember when I was younger the amount of air was about a 1/4 of the bag.

Must be some sort of regional flavor?
Never seen them down here in FL, or in MO, either.
Cant comment about the amount of air, except for another poster commenting about the cushioning affect, is the ounce weight per bag going down?

That's the one big beef I have when it comes to potato chips. The bags have so much air and seemingly not very many chips. I really do think that Pringles in the can are the better deal.

But how do you get beyond the taste?
All I have ever tasted when I eat those is chemicals and additives.
Ewwwwwww.....
