i love the video cuz its like pictures made into the movie but one question... what purpose is there to shrinking bags of chips. like its all crinkled..
im not saying its bad its just weird

I wish I would get small when you put me in a microwave.

Hey man you almost broke my microwave! I tried that and sparks and lightning started flying inside the microwave and me, my cousin, my sister and her friend all screamed like we were being chased by an ax murder. Your lucky I don't sue you. jk

Maybe because there's METAL in the bag? Also, don't go along with that "I'll sue you ehhhhhhh!" Bull-@%&# . Go Ahead, go to court, and lose about $2000. Have fun living on the streets.

That was the whole point of the "jk". In other words, I was just kidding. Duh. It was a joke- I wasn't going to try and sue anybody.

u have nothing other to do...but to shrink a bag of chips! wow how exciting that is!!!!get a life!!!

hahahah cute i agree

I had a friend actually wash out the bags, dry them, then nuke them twice. They turned out so tiny (smaller than you had them) and cute that I had a sunchips keychain for my bag. ^w^

i was just wondering, is there anyway to do this but so they come out flatter??

I'm so making a key chain out of my Grippo bag using this method
