    Your welcome.

    Chips is also my go to on trail. Funny thing is I never eat chips not hiking. Funyuns with a hamburger a few times a year is about it.

    Crisps =dried potato sludge and corn starch

    Why anyone would pay for that is beyond me. Cause it stacks in tube apparently.

    No wonder world is a mess
    Except the article is from the UK, and in British English, chips are called crisps, so for them to call them crisps would be like us calling them chips, so by calling them chips they are not calling them chips. Seems clear to me.

    Whether to call it a chip or a crisp, and how best to pack same was the most serious issue of the day. Until somebody who I won't name used board (a flat piece of wood) instead of bored (a state of ennui). Now we're going to have spelling issues, and that will prolly result in a riot.

    Poking through a pile of trail magic garbage just in case something was missed, the hiker I was with picked up a Pringles can and said "hey, I think there's something in here!"

    Turns out it wasn't Potato chips or garbage, but a roll of Ritz Crackers! It was then we discovered that a Pringles tube was a good way to carry crackers without them becoming dust.

    Small plastic cups
    1 oz full
    .3 oz empty

    8 small cups are needed for same amount of Pringles as one full size. One big container is 1.6 oz vs 2.4 oz of 8 plastic empty cups.

    One regular container is as tall as 4.5 small cups. So 8 cups would be almost twice as big as one big cardboard container.

    So one big cardboard Pringles is lighter and smaller than equivalent of small individual plastic cups. Other than being able to stack when empty in a trash bag big cardboard is more efficient and also cheaper.
    Thanks for the detailed analysis! I'm always a little disappointed when I carry one of those little packs, there's just not enough in each one for a decent salty/greasy snack.

    On a related note, though we love trail-pringles, we have shifted to Frito-lay "stax" and like them even better; they are thicker and hold up much better and even taste better to us. We're fresh out or I'd check, but the container is thin plastic instead of lined cardboard, not sure what the weight difference would be, but next time we buy a sleeve, I'll check.
