Frito-Lay Sacks Absurdly Loud "Green" Sun Chips Bag

Posted By on Tue, Oct 5, 2010 at 9:30 AM

Over the past year or so, anyone who has tried Frito-Lay's Sun Chips in the snack's new compostable bag has had the same two thoughts.

1) Upon seeing the bag: "It's so great a major food company is doing something to help the planet. And Sun Chips are pretty tasty. I'll buy some."

2) Upon opening the bag: "OH MY GOD WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH THIS BAG? IT SOUNDS LIKE A ROCKET LAUNCH."

Looks like eardrums trump the environment. USA Today reports (via Gawker) that Frito-Lay is sacking the compostable Sun Chips bag. The company is working on an environmentally friendly replacement, but for now, it's back to the old landfill filler.

Never heard the bag? Here's video proof. Turn your volume up for maximum effect:
