Confirmed: The New Sun Chips Compostable Bag Is Crazy Loud

There's been a lot of talk lately about the Sun Chips compostable bag—"the world's first 100% compostable chip package," the bag clarifies. Also, quite possibly the world's loudest. In a Wall Street Journal piece, the sound was compared to a revving motorcycle, glass breaking, and a jet cockpit.

We wanted to get our ears blasted! So Leah went out and grabbed us a bag. She even had a chat with her checkout lady about it: "Those are impossible to sneak!" the lady said. Ain't that the truth. Anytime a SE'r reached for a handful today, the whole office knew. There's even a Facebook group called "SORRY BUT I CAN'T HEAR YOU OVER THIS SUN CHIPS BAG."

Watch the video to see what we mean!
