all that and a bag of chips
The Frito-Lay company has announced that it is reducing the average weight of the bags of Lay's potato chips it sells in the Northeast in order to stay competitive. Parent company PepsiCo decided that 12.25-ounce bags sold in the region will be reduced in weight by a quarter of an ounce. The 2 percent loss in weight will result in four or five less chips in every bag.
The company said it has no immediate plans to apply the cuts to its other popular brands, which include Doritos, Fritos and Cheetos.
