Chip bags are noisy.
If you're in a class, a library, or other institution where eating or making noise is frowned upon then here are some tips you can use to open a bag of chips quietly and ward off your hunger without alerting everyone else in the room to what you're doing:
This method will require patience.
Normally opening a bag of chips takes less than a couple of seconds.
If you want to be stealthy about it you are going to have to take much longer, it may potentially take you up to a minute to quietly open a bag of chips.
Heres how to do it:
If you have scissors available then thes are an easy way of avoiding making a lot of noise when opening your chip bag.
Be aware that blunt scissors will crush the bag a certain amount before they make a cut, this could create some noise.
Sharper scissors will slice through the bag much more silently.
A coughing fit, a door slamming or a phone ringing can all create adequate noise cover to allow you to open a bag of chips without being heard.
As soon as you (or someone else) starts coughing quickly rip open the bag before the coughing stops.
Likewise if you see that a door is about to slam then get your fingers ready on the chip bag so that you can open it in sync with the slam of the door.
This strategy requires some pre-planning so is not much use if you are in a situation right now where you need to open a chip bag quietly.
However if you are planning ahead then emptying out your chip bags into either a ziploc bag or a tupperware container will make it very easy to acces your chips quietly.
