Permanent flavors include Original, Harvest Cheddar, French Onion, and Garden Salsa, and Cinnamon in 2007. Current limited editions (possibly only in certain test markets) include Honey Graham and Apple'N Caramel. Previous limited editions included Cinnamon Crunch early in 2007, the first time sweet flavors were added since Apple Cinnamon and Honey Nut in 1999.

Sun Chips also contain 75mg of Potassium per serving. Sun Chips are also labeled as one of PepsiCo's "Smart Choices Made Easy," a list of their products marketed by the company as healthier alternatives to other snack foods.

A nearly identical product, SunBites, is marketed in the UK by Walkers. Utz and Snyder's of Hanover offer similar products as well.
