No, there is a scoop (sorry, I didn't mean to mislead you!). But I still am leery of everyone under the sun's using things like that. Did it fall on the floor at some point, and someone just picked it up? How many hands have touched the scoop? Did the masses cough or sneeze into the bin where the chips are?
(Sorry, these things are on my mind right now anyway! I have 2 family members with serious cases of the flu - one of whom we had to take to the ER last weekend - so germs are at the forefront of my brain now! Because I've been exposed to it, I'm on antiviral meds as a precaution now as well.)
