Ya know last night DH and I had a discussion about this very thing. He insisted the bags were less than normal and I did my best to explain about weight vs volume and big bags with lots of air to avoid crushing the chips.

Just Great .. now I have to go and tell him he was right ... he loves when that happens LOL

The NEW Doritos bag has a new Triangle logo, but only 11 ounces per bag. The previous bag with old logo had 11.5 ounces...

Lays classic 10.5 ounces is now 10 ounces. Any lays other bag of lays potato chips that have a seasoning on them are 9.5 ounces which is down from 10 ounces.

The new bags of lays chips tell you try out the do us a flavor finalists.

Naw.

I'm thrice engaged but never could pull the trigger.

However (laughing!) I've been around enough to know that winning the tiniest argument with the fairer sex is a huge victory!

I hope my comment didn't offend. It wasn't meant to.

Vive le differance!
