Wayne 985: Lionel Mandrake: I don't have any problem opening chips. Maybe you guys are just pussies.

Ditto. I wasn't aware anyone had trouble opening them. Grab either broad side and separate gently at top.


I don't have a problem with chip bags, but the plastic sleeves inside a box of Kellogg's Raisin Bran, sometimes those bastards seem like they're sealed with the kind of rivets used in bridge building. Not all the time mind you, but about twice a year I end up either tearing the bag or ripping it open with such force that half the cereal ends up on my kitchen floor.

The client's chip-making plants were located west of the Rocky Mountains, so when trucks would drive their chips out to California, some of the seals would open up due to the pressure difference between the high altitude air and the air sealed inside the bag. And so they needed a stronger seal from us, which was then passed down to me.


umm. east of the rockies?
