This is such a travesty. A crime against snacking!
Everybody knows that chip companies tend to underfill their chip bags, and there is nothing worse than opening up a bag for a snack and discovering that you have been seriously ripped off.
For real, though -- why do they think they can get away with selling us all bags of chips that are typically only, like, 25 percent full? It's so unfair!
At least we tend to get a couple of handfuls of chips, even in the snack-size varieties. But if you were this unlucky man in Nottingham, England, you wouldn't even receive that.
When Samuel bought a low-calorie bag of LoveLife Waitrose crinkle cut crisps, he was probably expecting to get the standard amount of chips in his bag for less calories -- and by standard amount, we mean definitely more than one single freaking chip.
But unfortunately, that did not happen.
That's right; he opened up his bag of snacks, which cost him almost $2, and was rewarded with one single chip. One. That's all. The loneliest number!
To be fair, Samuel and his mother Helen Abbott suspected that the bag they purchased was underfilled more than usual, but they were shocked to discover just how little food was actually inside of the bag.
"Wow. That’s a new sort of scrimping on crisps init," Metro reports Samuel as saying.
"It’s hilarious. I’ve emailed Waitrose, but we’ve heard nothing back," added his mother.
As for Waitrose, the company that sold the chips, a spokesperson had this to say for themselves to Metro:
"We’re just as baffled as to why there was only a lonely crisp in the bag. We’re sorry for the disappointment and will be looking into what happened to the crisp’s friends to make sure it doesn’t happen again. We’d welcome the customer getting in touch so we can make things right."
