Apparently Sun Chips is trying to pull a fast one on us. Recently Frito-Lay has been stocking store shelves with 7 ounce bags of these wonderfully addicting multigrain snacks, which wouldn’t be so bad if they weren’t originally 10.5 ounces. Now if the 33 percent reduction had been in the half bag of air that’s packed in with our salty snacks that would’ve been once thing, but no, it’s 33 percent less chips. So, basically we’re getting more air.
Although the bags were downsized the price supposedly has remained the same. What the French Onion guys?!
Customers aren’t taking the sneaky move lightly with complaints dominating the Sun Chips Facebook page. Sun Chips has been replying to customer comments explaining that a price reduction should be reflected at grocers. The new 7 ounce bags should retail for $3.29 versus $3.99 for the 10.5 ounce bags, but so far customers are reporting the price has remained the same.
