The Incredible Observations of Bearman – Sun Chips

USA Today is reporting that Frito-Lay is dumping that noisy Sun Chips bag on all flavors except the original.  Finally accepting defeat in what I predicted (and cartooned) would turn out to hurt sales.

Sales are down 11%. And some environmentalists “hate” us for not putting up with a little noise.  But companies should NOT expect people who are interested in helping the environment to have to put up with a shoddy design.  They should do better – As it seems Boulder Canyon has done with their chip bag.

When will the world come to me first for advice on these things before spending so much money?

Hat Tip to Crunch Gear for the original heads up.

    Finally! Could you imagine how noisy it had to have been in the factory, just unloading the bags onto the machine prior to the conveyor belt even starting must’ve required ear muffs. 🙂

    You may just be the new Nostradamus Bearman. 🙂

    Not only an amazing cartoonist… BUT A PROPHET TOO! Show us the way Bearman.

  4. I find more enjoyment in eating chips when the only sound comes from the crunching in my mouth. Thank you for taking the lead on this very sensitive subject.

  5. Bo Lumpkin says:

    You did it again. You are a real leader and people should come to you for advice.
    The name Nostradamus is taken but you can use Nostradoofus or maybe Nostradumb….
    well, you know I don’ talk like that but anyway there are a lots of derivtives of that name out there.

    You should sell your advice then you could be a prophet for profit. Boulder canyon has the right idea. I am a compostaholic so I think more companies should follow their example

    Thanks for that breaking news – or loud breaking news
    I remember your post on this and that got me out to find a bag, make a short video clip, upload, post and retire (not retire as in any type of money but at least retire with a sense of accomplishment). I kicked the shit out that bag of chips.

    Just call the man Bearstradamus.

    Don’t be waiting on Sharon to knock on your door seeking advice 😆

    Finally! I knew some good would come from writing my congressman. Now if I can only get him to make Hershey put five bars back into Kit-Kats. 🙂

  11. Brad says:

    I hated every single time I picked up a bag. I’m not supposed to be annoyed by chips! Chips are awesome!

  12. Friggin Loon says:

    Blahahahahahhahahahaha I was going to pull the piss on you this morning after reading about it last night. I guess you got in first 🙂

  13. Friggin Loon says:

    Oh and Bearman, I wouldn’t answer any knocks at your door for awhile, I’m just saying!!!!!

  14. I could never eat Sun Chips in the movie theater because then I’d have to share with that audible bag.

  15. Fantastic job! I’d like to commission you to work to change Spain’s trade laws so that I can finally have access to Cinnamon Life cereal, boxer shorts, ankle socks and Percocet. Please? Thank you in advance.

    • Bearman says:

      Cinnamon does not make life cereal any better. Maybe I can smuggle them over for you and we can start our own trade company.

    You’re like my Magic 8-Ball sculpture, reincarnated in cartoon form.

    I’m sculpting your avatar as we speak.

  17. when will people start coming to me for advice before getting married?

    five years later, they always wish the would have.
