Start a Campfire Using Snack Chips - Camping Hack #1

Start a Campfire Using Snack Chips - Camping Hack #1

When it comes to starting a fire in a hurry, you may be surprised to know that various snack chips can be just as effective as traditional firestarters like birch bark. Whether it's Doritos, Fritos, Cheetos, or even potato chips, these crispy snacks can easily catch fire and help ignite your campfire quickly. Not only do they work well, but they can also be a more cost-effective option compared to dedicated fire starters.

In the video, we used Baked Cheetos and were amazed by how much grease and oil they contained. This makes them an excellent choice for starting a fire when natural kindling is wet or unavailable. Just remember to have a pack of matches or a lighter on hand to spark the flames.

Next time you embark on a camping or hiking adventure, consider bringing along a bag of snack chips like Fritos as a convenient and reliable campfire starter. Enjoy the warmth and ambiance of a crackling fire, even in challenging conditions, thanks to this handy camping hack.
