I have not read the entire thread. I apologize if this idea has already been presented:
Always turn the bag upside down when opening a bag of chips and eat from the bottom up. This way you eat the broken chips first and get to enjoy the whole ones at the end.
My philosophy is the opposite. Eat the best things first for maximum appreciation. Then you can let your dog eat the broken bits of whatever on the bottom, because you are already deeply satisfied.
But consider this also:
The current epidemic obesity problem is mostly caused by " I will just eat the broken ones".
So if you deplete the broken ones from the start, you will have no more excuses to over-eat.
