I'm not finding anything on the one-ounce box, however:

After numerous complaints about EVERYTHING from too few peanuts to NO PRIZE...The company has begun using puffier popcorn, although the coating for it has not been changed. There are more peanuts, at least 20 to a four-ounce bag, and Frito-Lay has even started packing the bags into shipping cartons upside down, which is supposed to increase the likelihood that the peanuts won't be concentrated in the bottom of the bag -- another thing that irritates consumers.
