    The best way would be to actually NOT EAT crisps at all...

    They are packaged in large bags with a lot of air, travel a long way and need a lot of energy to manufacture and get to you...

    Chips would be greener (in a way) but then again, fried food is no good to you at all.

    Have a nice snacking time ;-)

    When I was younger we had these sorts of packets, we put them in the oven and they would shrink well, they'd curl a bit but then flatten out again. Unfortunately, most of our packets have a foil lining now (Australia).

    Really? Because I have never seen them. Anywhere. At all. What country were they purchased in, if I might ask? :D

    After making this my microwave is absoloutey fine. You can also put them in the oven in aluminium foil wrapped round.. But microwave works best.

    Ye, I personally wouldnt reccomend you doing this unless you have a spare microwave, My microwave is fine after doing this but id rather you not having to buy a new microwave.

    It didn't really work for us as it threw sparks everywhere and nearly blew up our kitchen. It is a good idea but we then tried in the oven for about 5 minutes at around 230 degrees it worked and shrunk to about 2cm by 5cm. Of course it could of just been our microwave.

    Guys, This Is Enviromentally Friendly Becuase You Are Only Using 3 - 5 Seconds Of Electricity And Shrinking The Crisps Smaller So You Dont Have To Use As Many Bin Bags. And Yes This Does Work! I Will Add A Video Of It Soon.
