The quantity of Simba chips in packets are getting less. What’s going on?


Hi. I'm currently 33 years old and I'm a full time web developer. I love my wife and... my two cats! The main goal of this blog is to help other South Africans with product reviews, how to articles and updated science and tech news. There are many things that's not very clearly explained like how to do your tax or how to renew your car license for example. So hopefully this blog can be useful to others.

    What did the one Simba chip say to another Simba chip?
    Nothing, they were in two separate packets.

    think the extra space is to protect the chips so you dont just get crumbs

    You will be better off weighing the contents of the packet. That way you will have proof of what you are claiming, even though they can claim you ate some of it before you photographed it 😀

    What I did notice, and not only from Simba, is the following situations:

    1. Packet of chips weights 30g.
    2. Silently, without notice, the packet drops to 25g (and indicated on the pack as 25g)
    3. A few months later, you see the following on the packet: “NOW EVEN MORE VALUE FOR MONEY! NOW WITH 5g EXTRA!, and the label is now changed back to 30g”
    4. Wash, rinse, repeat in a year or so…

    Hi, I bought some Salt & Vinegar Simba Chips at our local Spar.
    It did not have any taste at all. It tasted like they just baked the chips and put in into the pack without the seasoning.

    That awkward moment when you buy a bag of air and there are chips inside.

    I aggree its getting smaller since the 90’s. The packets used tobe full and now there are less than half.

    Please Simba, we pay for a full bag of chips that what we want.

    Hope this can get to the right management.

    Cheers for now
