The Chips With The Least Amount Of Air In The Bag

As much as we love chips, we can all agree that the fact that almost half the bag is air is the worst. We get it, it’s done for “packaging reasons” and we don’t want our chips to be crushed, but we would like more chips in all that space. So Kitchen Cabinet Kings did the research to find out which brands give us more snack for our money.

They bought 14 different chip brands and measured the air-to-chip ratio for each. To get a little technical, they used the water displacement method to measure air percentage, submerging the bags to calculate the amount of air left over in the bag vs. chip content.

Coming in first for most chips was Fritos, with just 19% air. And on the flip side was Cheetos, with 59% air in the bag. Here’s how all the chips measure out so you can shop accordingly.

Fritos - 19% air   (best chip to air ration)

Pringles - 28% air

Tostitos Scoops - 34% air

Lays Baked - 39% air

Sun Chips - 41% air

Lays - 41% air

Popchips - 45% air

Cape Cod - 46% air

Kettle Brand - 47% air

Doritos - 48% air

TERRA - 49% air

Stacy’s Pita Chips - 50% air

Ruffles - 50% air

Cheetos - 59% air  (worst chip to air ratio)
