If this is the way green sounds, then give me brown instead!

I was at the grocery store this weekend stocking up on snacks to take to the pool.  I reached for the Sun Chips bag and heard that annoying crinkle and stopped in my tracks.

We like Sun Chips.  We like them a lot.  But I just can't deal with that annoying sounding bag. 

I got a bag a couple of weeks ago and cringed every time we reached for a handful of chips.

The makers of Sun Chips have designed the worlds first fully biodegradable snack bag.  It is supposed to break down in 13 weeks. (I think that's the claim they make on the bag.)  But whatever they have done to the bag to make this breakdown possible has created the world's most annoying crinkling sound. 

I just couldn't bring myself to listen to that sound again so I grabbed some pretzels instead.  I hope they come up with a different bag soon because Sun Chips are waaaaaay better than pretzels!

And if you don't believe me about the sound, try picking one up the next time you are at the store. Everyone in the store will stop and turn around and stare in your direction to see what is causing that horrible noise.

And by the way....the bag doesn't biodegrade in 13 weeks...at least mine didn't. I need to do a follow-up post on my blog. But yes, the bag does come with a new annoying crinkly sound.

We love Sun Chips too, but we can't even eat them in front of the tv anymore because that darn bag is so loud!! Although, maybe that is a good thing for our waistlines :)

We love Sun Chips, so we just tolerate the noise. :)

I totally agree with you 100%. The Sun Chips are soo not worth that annoying noise. Just another excuse for me to eat the real fattening ones! :) Salt-n-Vinegar Lays!

Hmmm guess it's a good thing we don't like Sun chips! But pretzels are a whole other story.

This is cracking me up, because I was just talking with a friend about how you can't just go in the kitchen and sneak sunchips anymore. LOL
