Stackable chip breaks from bag

Are you tired of half your bag of tortilla chips being broken? A new brand of chips stacked Pringles-style in a tall triangular canister is designed to prevent breakage. Procter & Gamble, the maker of Torengos, says another advantage of the new white corn chip is that its bowl shape neatly holds salsa and other dips. Torengos arrive in grocery stores this week. The suggested retail price is $1.69 for a 5.6-ounce can or $2.99 for a two-can pack.
