Some packaging designs are so evil, even Satan himself couldn't have created them. No, the sinister creations Bored Panda has featured in this list came from places far more darker than Hell. Corporate greed. From printing misleading captions to hiding the (lack of) contents of their products, the a**hole companies behind these deceptions are so shameless, they deserve all the shaming they can get.

C'mon people. This issue has been resolved long ago. If they put more chips, the package would be bigger, and with more air. The air is there to cushion the product during transport.

Right?! I'm so sick of people bitching about the air that happens in a package.

Sold by weight...not volume. It’s not rocket science

It says on the packaging how much grams? That's the one that you need to check, not how big the plastic is. You are not a kid anymore.

most of it is actually nitrogen for freshness so the chips don't spoil in the bag.

Melvin Dragvelk

They are packages by weight NOT by volume. If you weigh the contents they will weigh what the package says. The bag is bigger and the air is there to help prevent crushing during shipping. One would have thought everyone knew this by now.

Mark CM

There is a reason for this. Crisps need a pillow of air to stop them being crushed into crumbs ... but people are too dumb to realise it.

tuzdayschild
Community Member

Just so long as the amount of chips in the bag match the amount of grams written on the bag, I'm good. The extra air keeps them from breaking so easily.

Stephanie Hewitt

exposed what exactly? The air put in there to stop the chips from being crushed? The chip amount is written right on the front of the bag in weight.

Yeah, that's truly bad, but I've seen that a lot over the years, where companies will put more air than product in their bags.

This isn't an issue though, when chips are packaged it goes by grams, not by the size of bag, if you weigh the content without the bag you will see it corresponds to what is shown.

Todd Chesser

I guess that's why they are 1/2 the price of the other brands

Ralph Spooner

FDA doesn't care about the size of the package as long as it contains the listed contents by the weight listed on the package and the ingredients list is correct. The rest is your problem.

Allegedly, the bag is partially filled to prevent the chips from being crushed in shipping/packaging. Yeah, right.
