A New, Quieter 100% Compostable SunChips Bag!

Frito-Lay just announced the release of a quieter 100% compostable SunChips bag.

After six months of testing, the SunChips research team found that by using a different adhesive that still met performance requirements, they were able to significantly reduce the noise of the bag. As before, the next-generation bag is still made from a renewable, plant-based material called PLA, or polylactic acid, and is 100% compostable when placed in a hot, active compost bin.

I recently go to experience the significant noise differences in this next-generation bag!  My first concern was of course, how would I hear my hubby snacking?  Apparently there was complaints over the noise of the original compostable SunChips bag.  Granted it was a noisy bag and one could hear someone snacking three rooms away, but I didn't mind!  One for the fact I knew when dear old hubby was sneaking the chips.  LOL.  The other reason of course was it was 100% compostable!

I am not disappointed in the new quieter bag!  It is still slightly noisy, but will not wake a sleeping baby!    Plus it is still 100% compostable!!!  

By now you are probably hungry!  So go and grab a bag and get munching!   You can also read about the new compostable bag at,
