Instead of purchasing a large quantity of potato chips and letting them take up space in your pantry, you can place them in the freezer. Freezing potato chips will ensure they stay fresh so that you do not waste them. Once potato chips are opened and exposed to oxygen and sunlight, they will begin to lose their flavor and texture.
Make room in the freezer for the potato chip bag. You do not want anything heavy pressing against the chips that might crush them.
Write the current date on the potato chip bag with a permanent marker.
Place the unopened potato chip bag directly in the freezer. The potato chips will last for one year in the freezer.
