Noisy Bags, Jobs, Dare-Devils, Fish Oil
They may be the noisiest snack bags ever, and now they’re being dropped.
The makers of Sun Chips have decided to dump the super loud biodegradable bags after getting a slew of complaints from consumers.

One site was named “I wanted Sunchips but my roommate was sleeping.”
Frito lay says it will keep the recyclable bags for the ORIGINAL plain flavor, but the other flavors will have traditional chip bags.
