Have you ever opened a bag of chips and thoughts, why is there so much empty space? Did I just pay for mostly air with a side of chips? You are not alone! For years, I've thought I was getting ripped off with each delicious bag of chips. Today, I want to find out if that is true and I am starting with the biggest culprit of them all - Doritos!

Disclaimer: At 11:56 , the Breakage Rates for the More Chips Bag and the Average Bag are accidentally swapped; the More Chips Bag Breakage Rate is actually 79.8%, and the Average Bag Breakage Rate is 74.9%.

Hey Theorists! In the video at 11:56, the Breakage Rates for the More Chips Bag and the Average Bag are accidentally swapped; the More Chips Bag Breakage Rate is actually 79.8%, and the Average Bag Breakage Rate is 74.9%. Sorry for the mix up!

67% from 133 isnt 100 it is ~89. That means 44 are unbroken and 89 are broken.

Food theory idea: What food if any, could we live our whole lives eating that one food?

This just makes me wonder if a better packaging method could be used. I mean the tubes work fine for Pringles so why not something that mirrors the triangle shape of the Dorito? It seems to me that using the bags is a lazy excuse to charge customers more for less product. Surely it couldn't be that difficult to design more efficient packaging? For example imagine a Toblerone tube but for Doritos instead? If it was made from recyclable materials it could cancel out any cost/environmental factors in making it.

As a kid living in Mexicali, I used to not understand why all the bags of chips in our neighbor city Calexico were so full of air, until it dawned on me that I have the privilege of living where most chips brands get manufactured. Damage by transportation is hardly an issue locally.

If so little chips are actually able to fit in the bag, then isnt the design of the chips itself at fault? If the chips were designed to be more flat and not have many curvy weirdness, then wouldnt it take up less volume in bulk?

Would absolutely LOVE to see a fitness theory, as not only are most “diets” you see largely sneaky ways to get you to buy into what someone is trying to sell, instead of true dietary facts, but most “workouts” are just the same way too. I feel like capitalism has clouded the scientific clarity that the 21st century can finally offer on fitness, and i think you are the perfectly unbiased person to break down those corporate walls!

THANK YOU for mentioning that the air is nitrogen! I saw that on an episode of How It's Made when I was a child, and I thought it was common knowledge. The nitrogen helps the product last longer. It's frustrating to see how many people don't actually know that lmao

More of a game theory but in GTA relative to our characters size, building size, and mountain size. How fast are we moving or how big is Los Santos because there’s no way going from the bottom of the map to the top is only about 7 miles. What’s going on here?🤔

You have it entirely wrong. Ship are built in dock yards and they don't come in a bag nor box, rather the dock yard is flooded which lets the ship float out of the yard.

Fun fact: 100% oxygen is actually pretty bad for you unless you're in an emergency situation like hospitalised or it's for a short time. It's technically both slightly corrosive and poisonous.

But putting more air jus makes it deceptive since you think the whole bag is full just see the party sized Dorito bag is very big but the the chips inside are the same as a full normal bag :(

Great video as always Matt... But why is it, when I get a chips bag from a local business that there is way more chips in the bag than in Doritos? What is the explanation behind that? If this theory is true, how can other companies put more chips in their bags?

Doritos has air in it so when you open the bag, the Doritos don’t splatter all over the place. They did it too rough though. For Pringles, its a can, not a bag.

Doritos are owned by Frito Lay, whose workers are on strike at the moment for better wages. There's another reason not to buy Doritos (at least until the workers win their fair wages).
