What if I told you everything filled with air was at least 78% Nitrogen.

And oxygen, the thing that oxidizes things, makes up 21%

The other 1% is made up mostly of argon, which is another inert gas. Then there's various trace gases:

********.

There's no need to put in that much.

Also, Pringles doesn't have that problem.

Don't believe everything companies are trying to sell.

Dunno why retards are thumbing you down, but I gave you a thumbs up because you are correct.

Potatoes are indeed the main ingredient in Pringles, they also contain corn and rice, but no potato chips are 100% potatoes anyways.

"Pringles, the popular snack food in a tube, are not potato crisps, a High Court judge has ruled."

"Pringles is a brand of potato and wheat-based stackable snack chips owned by the Kellogg Company."

"Pringles have only about 42% potato content, the remainder being wheat starch and flours (potato, corn, and rice) mixed with vegetable oils, an emulsifier, salt, and seasoning."

Still have quite a lot of potato content. It is probably the majority relative to the other percentages.

pringles are in a solid tube that can resist being crushed, while bags need the nitrogen to prevent the bag from being crushed enough to crush the chips

This is true, but the amount of air in bags has been slowly increasing since it's introduction. Same with gummy and hard candies, except those don't need nitrogen so there is no excuse.

Yes, but at the same time you're paying for the product, not the size of the bag. If they put more in and filled the bag to the brim, you'd pay more for the extra product.

Except they're removing more of the product and leaving the price unchanged.

>sell full bags of chips for $1
>every month put in a bit more nitrogen and a bit less chips
>eventually people pay $1 for half a bag of chips
"B-but we're paying for the entire product guys! If they put more in they should be more expensive!"
Oh shut up, companies are screwing us over and there's nothing we can do.

this would be called inflation (literally) aka like the first ******* thing you learn in economics if you don't think that every single company on the face of the ******* planet have been putting less **** into a container, making a container slightly smaller, using ******* ingredients or something to that effect, you're denser than osmium.... in order to keep up with rising costs of manual labor, ingredients, packaging, and shipping, companies have got to slightly decrease the quality and/or quantity of a product that they provide, or they would go ******* broke... also, it seems a TON more drastic, because in your memories of these products, you were probably significantly smaller, so the packages seemed to be bigger. if they started raising the price to combat inflation, or if your favorite company went belly up because they wanted to provide the same service, despite inflation (******* twinkies) you'd be just as pissed... so shut your fat ass up and deal with it... because that's the way **** goes

What they are selling is the whole bag, which by appearance looks much bigger.
They print the weight on the bag at the bottom and on the back in small, black lettering.

Do you have a magical way of getting the bag of chips from the shelf to your cart without touching it so you have no indication of how much it weighs before you purchase it?

Or you could just take an extra 4 seconds and read the weight on the bag. In fact, some supermarkets even have a price per weight printed on the price tag.
