Tostitos' new party bag knows when you've been drinking

Tostitos sells a bag chips that'll call you a discounted Uber on Super Bowl Sunday

Plus, if you've ever blown into one of those awesome BAC machines at the bar, you know how fun it'll be to repeatedly test the bag on Sunday. The latest is a limited version of a Tostitos chip bag that can check whether someone's been drinking and if they're too inebriated to drive.

If there is alcohol, the sensor on the bag turns red, forming the image of a steering wheel. The bag comes with an Uber code which will offer $10 off your ride after the Super Bowl game, courtesy of Uber and Mothers Against Drunk Driving. Which is why Frito-Lay is reminding fans this year to not drink and drive.

The bag, which is meant to remind people to re-think driving after consuming alcohol, comes as a limited edition, but the UPC codes on almost all bags of Tostitos chips will give users $10 off an Uber ride on the day the New England Patriots take on the Atlanta Falcons in Houston, Feb. 5, at least until 25,000 users enter the code.

While the Frito-Lay won't be selling the bags, the company will be giving out 25,000 $10 Uber discounts to those who purchase any of its chips between now and the Super Bowl as part of its effort to make sure people get home safely.

The Chargers leave San Diego for LA Um, welcome back?
For now, the Rams have a one year head start, but a year of bad football under Jeff Fisher didn't exactly win hearts and minds. On Sundays, for more than two decades, we were allowed to watch the two best telecasts the league had to offer.

The bags are also equipped with near-field communication (NFC) technology, AdWeek notes, allowing users to tap their phone against the bag to call Uber.

On Super Bowl Sunday, many of us will enjoy an adult beverage. In 2015, 45 Americans were killed in alcohol-related wrecks - more than half of all accidents that day, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

If you don't have a designated driver, then ask a sober friend for a ride home; call a cab, friend, or family member to come and get you; or just stay in for the night. Just a gimmick? Or a helpful tool to reduce drunk driving?
