[FOOD HACK] The Only Way You Should Ever Open a Bag of Chips


How many of you are tasked with the daily struggle of opening a bag of chips? From accidentally ripping the entire bag apart, slinging chips all over a room, to making a slit too large down the side (thus making it impossible to close), the perfect way to open a crinkly air-tight pouch has alluded us for far too long. That is, until now.

We stumbled upon this genius video of  a young man demonstrating the perfect way to open a bag of chips.

Watch as he uses his teeth to rip the dead center of the bag, followed by a move that’s reminiscent of peeling an orange, but with cellophane. The end result? A perfect circular opening, welcoming for any hand trying to scoop up a chip. With over 1 million hits on this video, we hope this leads to a new trend in chip opening. Try this at your next party or at work in the break room, we guarantee your friends will be hooting and hollering just like his.

    Clever, but it wouldn’t work with a large bag of chips because you couldn’t seal them back up again. As for the small bag, just cut the top off and dump them in a bowl. Unless, of course, you don’t HAVE a bowl. Then you could try this. But I’ll bet I’d still send chips flying all over the room, haha.

      Seal them back up? Just eat them.

        But what if it’s a “Party Size” bag? LOL

    I used the wooden spoon trick and it worked once and never again.
