Bearman Cartoon: Noisy SunChips


Noisy SunChips Bag Cartoon

Don’t know if SunChips (from Frito Lay) are available outside the United States but essentially it is a yummy multigrain chips that come in multiple flavors.   The wife and I have always been big fans…that is until EARTH DAY.

Bravo to Frito Lay for making something that not only is yummy but also is environmentally friendly.  That is until you actually pull the bag off the shelf.  It’s hard to explain but this guy shows you how annoying this new packaging is.

Now I am afraid to even go down the chip aisle for fear of someone grabbing a bag.   I mistakenly went down one day while the poor Frito Lay delivery guy was restocking the shelves.  I told him how bad I felt that he had to spend his day listening to that awful noise while stocking the SunChips.  He didn’t say anything but gave me a pleading look to help him find a way out of his misery.

Even now, there is a half eaten bag of SunChips in our kitchen.  It has been there way longer than normal, because neither of us want to grab the bag.  So Frito Lay I hope your intention in saving the environment wasn’t to send sales of SunChips into a downward spiral thus eliminating any potential waste.  Thankfully the singles haven’t made the move to the new packaging yet.

    lmao I hate these new bags! They really are the worst.

  2. Sheila Deeth says:

    Tragically not coeliac-friendly, or they weren’t last time I looked, so I get to listen to the bag and miss out on the flavor.

  3. nursemyra says:

    Couldn’t you just eat an apple instead? 😉

  4. Nate Fakes says:

    I hate noisy bags AND food. I don’t buy Kit-Kats because of that annoying commercial where everyone does the theme song by crunching into the bars. Auughhh! And people that eat chips during a movie should be shot.

  5. Friggin Loon says:

    Move over waterboarding, we have a new kid on the block 🙂

  6. Carlo says:

    Whoa! While we do have SunChips in my country, we do not have this irritating bag! I had to stop the Youtube video a mere few seconds in cause the noise startled my fellow doctors here!
    Great cartoon as usual, Bearman! 🙂

  7. bschooled says:

    WE have those in Canada as well.

    But luckily we also have ear muffs…

  8. Roland says:

    ACK! My wife and I can not stand the new bag. Even 4 out of 6 of my kids were commenting on it!

  9. Holy shit a Sun Chip bag turns into a flower when you plant it? What will they think of next?

    There is nothing more annoying than when I’m trying to watch a movie and The Wife starts going in and out of the chips bag. You’d think I hadn’t told her to just get a bowl a thousand times before.

  10. jammer5 says:

    Dude, you empty the bag into a bowl, then give the sunchips bag to the cat 🙂

  11. G says:

    Well…….so much for trying to sneak a snack late at night/early in the morning. Sure glad that I don’t drop $4 for a bag of SunChips.

  12. I also had a rant today about a commercial. My rant is against Volkswagen and the violence it covertly suggests.

  13. susispice says:

    what a good intruder alert,
    annoying your annoying neighbour with at 4am on a sunday
    give to your 4 yr old nephew to take on his long ride home after your brother wouldnt stop him from jumping on your brand new couch

    ahh so many wonderful things u could do with this bag haha

    ive never seen it, nor have it hear as far as i know

  14. Brad says:

    I just flew through Charlotte. My God, you Americans have so many more delicious flavours of ANY chip then us cold Canucks.

  15. lynn says:

    i’ve never had sunchips but i have seen them in the stores. (i rarely do any processed food) i’m pretty sure that once the new packaging starts effecting frito lay’s profit margin this noisy bag’s history. i read that in the UK this snaack food is known as sunbites.

    • Bearman says:

      I’m sure Frito Lay is doing just fine. But you know they did get rid of my Fat Free Doritos that I haven’t quite forgiven them for.

  16. Dan McGinley says:

    Hahahahahahaha and . . . HA! It reminds me of Steve Martin in “The Jerk” when he invented a device to keep glasses on your nose, and then it made everyone cross-eyed. Sometimes the best-laid plans go to waste. Get it? Compostable waste? Sorry Bear. Great post. I hate that friggin’ sound.

  17. Bo Lumpkin says:

    If people put all these things into effect to save the planet there ain’t goin’ to be any people left. Then who are they savin’ it for?

    • Bearman says:

      Me. I plan to be last man standing.

      • Bo Lumpkin says:

        Not me. I will be sitting there beside you while you are standing. I might even be in a hammock. Go ahead and stand though Bearman even though there won’t be anyone else but me to criticize you for takin’ a break.

  18. MJ says:

    Does that mean they are considering renaming then Roughles!?! Ha,ha,ha!

  19. George says:

    I don’t even like the faded look of the bags. I used to eat Sun Chips all the time back in the day, but I won’t touch ’em now with that old, burlap sack-looking bag. Ugh! I’m a real sucker for good marketing and bright colors. 😀

  20. omg. that video was hilarious.

    i guess i won’t be sneaking those inside my purse to go to the movies.


    p.s. i didn’t know you had a wife for some reason?!

  21. womaninblack says:

    ‘Sunchips’? In the UK, this would be part of a sentence, ie ‘What’s nice to eat in the sun? Chips.’ And the chips would be potato ones. You guys and your crazy lingo.

    • Bearman says:

      I used to wonder when we went to Captain Ds or Arthur Treachers as a kid and I ordered Fish and Chips, why I always got fries instead.

  22. SpilledInkGuy says:


  23. jb says:

    Hoody dude loves the frito dude. He has that sweet crunchy goodness.

  24. DadaHyena says:

    Let’s all just hope that no one ever makes toilet paper just as noisy.

  25. lisleman says:

    I have not heard of this and apparently should have heard it miles away. I need to go buy some. I liked the chips when they first came out but have not had them recently.

    I think we should start a Sun Chip bag band.

  26. Ron-Yves says:

    The black dude with the pitch-fork and the hockey-hair is great touch—I love the Garden Salsa version of those things…

    You can also crush them up and use them to bread chicken—deep-fry the shiz and you’re the kitchen hero…I’ve been there…

  27. Kurtis says:

    I think the Sun Chip bags will make excellent noise makers at sporting events! Could you imagine an entire football stadium with Sun Chip bags? The other team may decide not to show up!

  28. jillsy says:

    Hmmm…haven’t bought a bag in awhile. I’ll have to check it out in the store and annoy some shoppers! 🙂

    • Bearman says:

      Head over to the deli and everytime someone tries to place an order rattle the bag so they can’t be heard. See how long before someone hits you.

  29. Bo Lumpkin says:

    When a man does a comic on a potato chip bag and receives 70 comments on it I would say he is da man.

  30. David says:

    I haven’t had the (mis)fortune to try the new Sun Chips/bag, but that’s got me thinkin’… if it’s biodegradable, can we eat the bag? I mean, it turns into natural stuff right? I’ve eaten so many un-natural things in my life this new bag HAS to be better.

  31. Gruff Guano says:

    “Compostable items are made from plant materials such as corn, potato, cellulose, soy and sugar.”

    That means you can fry the bag, spice it up and eat it. Finally, always something left to eat when the bag is empty.

    • Bearman says:

      Why not make the bag out of the same plastic that they used to make those soda pop candys in plastic? We used to eat that crap.

  32. lisleman says:

    thanks for this post – It gave me an idea that I just posted. Of course I gave you a shout out.

  33. Takes 718 years to decompose.

    But Denny likes the noise. Going to sample it for my next Hip Hop jam.

    • Bearman says:

      That’s the regular bag I think or this one if you don’t have the HOT compost system going. Whatever that means.

  34. Tony says:

    What a good idea but they have replaced earth pollution with noise pollution. I like the lady with the “Give us back the old bag”
    If I held up one of those someone would bring me my mother-in-law


  1. […] 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 […]
