      I think they're AWESOME!

      Have you ever had that feeling where you have these foods that you an unexpected liking for? Well, I have. I've eaten many flavours of crisps and most have been tasty, but some are not. Spicy crisps are my favourites but strangely, Wotsits are as well, and I'm not really a cheese lover! When I was first offered these crisps I said "no thank you" because I didn't think they looked very nice, and the smell put me off. One day, I was offered them again, and I just decided to try one...and that was how I discovered these things. So, let's know wot's wot with the review. PACKAGING: The packet has a dark blue front, lighter in the centre than the rest of the bag. The Wotsits logo on the bag is yellow bubble writing and is below the Walkers (who made them) logo. The crisps are described as "Really Cheesy" top right hand corner reads "95 calories" so it's a bit healthirer than other crisps. And they're baked, not fried! The back of the packet is white and has its ingredients, nutritional info and Walkers address in yellow glow text boxes. It also had an "are you a cruncher or a melter? " section, a "how do you eat yours" thing. By the way, I'm a cruncher AND a melter! SMELL: I open the bag and...WOW! These crisps do have a very strong cheesy smell, but it doesn't really smell of a cheese in particular. Whatever you do, DON'T let the smell put you off! LOOKS, TASTE AND TEXTURE: Wotsits are maize snacks, not normal potato crisps. They're basically cheesy puffs of a bright orange colour (no artificial colours, it's paprika!). The texture of them is not very crunchy but more soft, and they melt in your mouth. This makes them ideal for younger children as they're less likely to choke. The taste is EXTREMELY cheesy! I think "really cheesy" is just to say the least. A downside to Wotsits is that they're messy; after eating a bag, orange gets all over your teeth and your fingers! But then again I wouldn't let that knock a star off my review! In fact, sucking the powder off your fingers adds to the joy of these! You can find them in supermarkets, newsagents and convenience stores.

      I don't mind the orange fingers

      One of my favourite snacks is Wotsits so you will always find them in my cupbolards, they come in 6 packs and 10 packs and even different flavours now but the cheese ones are my favourites. A 6 pack usually costs around £1.50 a pack so I usually watch out for them going on 3 for £3 or I often find them in the discount type stores. The packets are housed in a blue plastic bag which holds the same information that is on the back of each packet. Each packet is dark blue on the front and white on the back, the front of the pack is a lighter shade in the middle than on the outside of it and wotsits is written so it looks like it is written in the crisps, there is a little red circle pointing out that there are only 95 calories in the bag and then you have a little table in the corner of nutrional information. On the back of the packet you find quite a wealth of information, there is the question about how you eat them, some facts such as no artificial colours, it's the paprika that makes them orange and they are made with real cheese and a few pictures of other crisps from this make that meet the 99 calorie quota. You get the usual nutritional information on the rear of the pack too and these are great if you like to watch what you eat as not only are there only 95 calories in a bag but they only have 0.7g of saturated fats. Inside the pack is foiled and holds in the flavour really well, the crisps are bright orange in colour and like little worm shaped some straight and some curved. I personally like to suck the flavour off theses crisps and allow them to dissolve slowly in my mouth meaning that it takes me wuite some time to eat them. A drawback of this snack is that they do leave an orange residue on your fingers and underneath finger nails. The taste as you would hope is cheesy and you find that some of the crisps are more coated than others, my favourites are the ones with loads of flavour on them. I love this snack and pick them over any other crisps and they are also great for children with not too much badness in them. Ingreidents - maize, vegetable oil, cheese flavour (dried cheese (7%) milk, lactose, flavour enhancers (disodium 5'ribonucleotide) colours (paprika extract, annatto) natural flavourings), salt and potassium chloride.

        Great to have as a snack for school lunch packs.

        I love any crisps made by Walkers, I find their quality second to none. I was given a bag full of really chessy flavoured wotsits, and the first thing I noticed was their strong chessy smell and it really reaches your nose. My friend buys these in a multi pack seven for the price of five and they are really nice, crunchy but cheesy at the same time, you would almost like to lick the thick cheesy coating off them and they are to be honest quite adictable to the mouth.On the front of the large packet there is the Wotsits sign written in large yellow letters on a blue background, and in this packet you got 2 packs free, so thats seven for the price of five. They are really cheesy corn puffs, as opposed to being a crisp they actually melt in the mouth, so are great to give to young children too. Calories : 95 per packet. Sugar :1.5g. Fat : 5.8g. Saturates: 0.7g Salt :0.4g. They are so light and fluffy that they melt in your mouth, you can pop them in and they just melt away, or simply nibble on them. They are only 95 calories a bag so are a great snack to have. They can leave little fingers a bit orangey, its because of all the paprika they use in the coating, which give them their unique taste. They are suitable for vegatarians. There is a website which you can visit www.walkers.co.uk for any information. If you were dissatisfied then you simply return the wrapper and contents to an address listed on the reverse side of the packet. Ingredients : aize, vegtable oil, cheese flavour, dried cheese, 7percent. milk lactose, flavour enhancer, salt, colours, paprika extract, annatto, natural flavourings, and potassium chloride. store in a cool dry place. I like the way that they melt in your mouth and that I can give them to my younger grandchildren without them choking like crisps can do. I would recommend these as they have a great flavour and also they are light and fluffy and wont spoil their dinner times. Thanks for reading and rating my reviews.

          A great tasting really cheesy snack!

          I have always liked cheese puffs but particularly Wotsits. In my view they are superior to other types of cheesy puffs and the flavour is full of cheese. I find myself munching through a packet quite quickly although perhaps because there are a lot of Wotsits in each packet, its rare for me to eat more than one bag. I will usually only eat one Wotsit at a time; preferring to sort of suck the flavour off them and let them dissolve in my mouth!! Of course, you will get little bits of the flavouring on your fingers, resulting in them turning orange! (which I have to admit to licking off my fingers!). You can buy other varieties of Wotsits with different flavours; Prawn cocktail and flamin hot. Personally the prawn cocktail flavour would not appeal to me, although the flamin hot might. I can't comment on the taste of these other flavours as I have yet to try them. My son in particular likes these. I got them recently in a 3 for £3.50 special offer at Asda. You can choose out of a selection of Walkers Crisps/snacks and mix and match. This is a pretty good offer I think. Wotits are corn puffs and the current bag I have contains 6 packets. You could be forgiven for thinking that Wotsits contain artificial colouring; given their orange colour... but they don't. As it states on the pack; 'it's the paprika that makes it orange' Ingredients ********** Maize Vegetable Oil Cheese flavour (Dried cheese 7 %) Milk Lactose Flavour enhancer (Disodium 5 riboncucleotide) Colours (Paprika Extract, Annatto) Natural Flavourings Salt Pottasium chloride Allergy Advice ************** Wotsits are suitable for both vegetarians and coeliacs. What is great about Wotsits as with similar corn snacks is that they are low in calories. There are only 95kcals per bag. Wotsits are nice; easy to eat and full of flavour. They re worthy of 4 Dooyoo stars in my opinion.

            A good snack

            Now im sure im not the only person that loves a nice packet of crisps. There perfect for when your on the run, have know other food or cant be bothered to make anything. Wotsits have always been a strong favourite of mine as they taste delicious and have a good strong flavour. Sometimes i like plain crisps, but when im looking for something with a bit of va va voom ill get these. Im sure pretty much everyone has tried wotsits and if you havent you must, as your missing out. I mean they turn your fingers orange so you pretend your an essex girl. Taste and texture : Now im sure you would never off guessed this ... but there really cheesy. The cheese taste is very strong and in your face and as soon as you open the bag, you are hit with the ultimate cheesy smell. I find the smell quite nice but i know some people would find it too much. Also it leaves a smell on your fingers so you will have to wash them and not just lick them clean. Now they are curled puffs, there small enough to pop a few in your mouth in one go. The puffs melt in the mouth quickly so you either chew them like normal while there still crunchy or leave them in your mouth too melt. Its also a good choice for children as even though of course they could still choke because there a small size and they melt it would be harder for them too get lodged in there throat. Normal walkers crisps really hurt when there trapped in your throat and they feel like there cutting me, which is really not very pleasant. There are also only 101 calories which for crisps is a fair amount. Smell and colour : Bright radioactive essex girl orange. They are seriously orange because off the all the cheese flavouring, it dosent look like the most natural colour, but hey recently companies have been getting stricter with colourings and flavourings, so there not as chemical filled as they used to be. They smell very cheesy, so id say its best not too eat them in front of someone you want to impress, as orange fingers and cheesy breath as funnily enough not very appealing! I'd say the authorities would give these crips an asbo. Where can i get them from and cost : Everywhere from a petrol station to a supermarket. You can buy them individually or in multipacks. Multipacks always work out best value and also you can get mixed flavour bags with the other wotsit flavours of really hot and prawn cocktail. I do rather like the prawn cocktail ones aswell. They cost about 45p for a standard bag and like £3 for two multipack bags. Shop around for deals and make sure yourself a saving. Ingredients : Maize, Vegetable Oil, Cheese Flavour (Cheese Powder (7%), Whey Powder (From Milk), Flavour Enhancer (Monosodium Glutamate from Wheat), Colour (Paprika Extract), Natural Flavouring.), Salt, Wheat Flour. I am quite impressed with the ingredients i must say as there are hardly any and i actually know what they all are! Usually there are a few which ive never heard of in my life, but with these there isent which is very reassuring. We all know crisps are not super healthy, but these seem like a much healthier option. Overall : I would definetly recommend them, there perfect for adults and children and are a good filler for a lunchbox. They have a good strong taste and are melt in the mouth. Even if you dont really like cheesy things id say give them a try as they might just suprize you. Have fun :D xx

              Worth getting past the smell to taste.

              When I was a boy I remember all my friends absolutely loving "cheesy" wotsits, they were in everyones lunchbox and at every party you ever went to. I was never a fan of them myself as I hated the overwhelming smell that eminated from both the colourful bowls filled with the puffed perpetrators and from you're best friend himself as his face and hands would inevitably be covered in the telltale artificial orange hue. So for most of my childhood I steered well clear. As a grown up however (in name only) I decided to see whether my hatred of the humble wotsit would still hold true, so I bought a bag making sure to wait until I got home before exposing myself to the hi-stink I'd always assosciated with them. In all those years only one major change has occured and that is Wotsits are no longer produced by Golden Wonder but now belong to Walkers. Judging by the packaging the trademark orange glow was still there and I presumed the fetid smell would also remain. Unfortunately I was right, on opening the bag I was "greeted" by the overwhelming scent of foot. I persevered though and resolved to finally get around to tasting a wotsit rather than just judging it on smell alone like I had as a Juvenile. I popped a puff into my mouth in a manner resembling an old English maiden, eating a cucumber sandwich, after all I certainly didn't want my hands to be covered in this powerfully pigmented pungeant powder. I chomped down on the light and airy cheeselet nestled gingerly betwixt my diligent digits and was instantly innovated!!! My childish preconceptions melted into obscurity as my servile tongue submitted to the salty savoury snack that now adorned it. Noisome? No question , Odorous? of course, Odious? Not So!!! Once you get past the olfactory assault the tongue is in for a tremendous treat. In summary do not be put off by the powerful smell these cheesy chappies churn out, once you taste them, all will become clear.

              highly recommend overall

              Walkers Wotsits are a baked curly cheese snack, originally made by Golden Wonder and (since 2002) has been marketed by Walkers, the leading crisp manufacturer in the UK. Wotsits really cheesy are available in individual 17.5 gram bags and also 6 and 10 bag multipacks. Expect to pay around 35p for a single bag and £2 for a 10 pack. Wotsits come in distinctive packaging of a red and blue foil bag, with wotsits written across in yellow. The walkers logo is also prominently displayed along with the tagline 'really cheesy'. Wotsits should be stored in a cool dark place and will keep for 2-3 months depending on the best before date. Per pack Wotsits really cheesy are 95 calories (they are part of Walkers 99 calories or less range) They contain 1.5 grams of sugar and 5.8 grams of fat (of which 0.7 grams is saturated). These aren't exactly healthy, but equally for a snack they are pretty low calorie and the saturated fat is very low in comparison with other crisps. They also have no artificial colours or flavours and are suitable for both vegetarians and coeliacs. I have a real weakness for Wotsits. They have a very manufactured look, with bright orange flavouring all over them and a puffed curly shape and the smell of cheese when you open the bag is very strong. However, this is not off putting and the flavour (though still very strong) is really cheddary and compelling. Best of all is the texture - each wotsit is initially crunchy, but rapidly melts, which feels great and adds an extra layer to the experience.

              Great little snack!!

              Memories!! I remember when I was about 12 (in 1982) I had wotsits for the first time. At the time I think they must have been pretty new and I loved them. I loved them so much that my Nan would buy me a pack each week. Even when I was 18 and I never visited her as often, she'd send a packet home with my Mum for me. The funniest part was when I was 24 and married, and she'd still send me packets via my Mum. My wife thought it was hilarious. She passed away when I was 27 so no more weekly wotsits!! She was a great Nan, and just writing this brought a little glaze to my eyes (no tears I'm a fella). Moving onto the review. Well as you can imagine I have eaten hundreds of packets of these little beauties. Originally made by Golden Wonder they were sold to Walkers when the company changed hands in 2002. I have tried other flavours such as Beef, Prawn Cocktail etc but as this review is based on the really cheesy flavour I will stick to this. The Cheese Flavour puffs are a strange prawn kinda shape. Unlike any other kind of crisp out there, although there are some immitations that get very close. The puff is then coated in cheese powder to give it a very cheesy taste. They really are quite delicious. If I had to make any kind of complaint is that it leaves your fingers orange - the flavour and colouring is that strong. But I guess if it didn't change the colour of my fingers, then they would have to compromise on the cheese and that would be no good!! In February 2007 Wotsits startd using Sunseed Oil and have now only got 99 calories in your standard pack - so they are not too unhealthy. They can be bought in multipacks like most crisps as well as singular packs, and they are available widely throughout the UK. The multipacks cheesy flavour can be found for about a £1 for 6, and the multipacks with different wotsit flavours are usually about 10 for £2. Well worth a try. Highly recommended.

                Buy Them

                I love Wotsits and always have. They are just so different from other brands of crisps. I bought 3 6 bag multi packs in Asda for £3, which qualifies as a bargain to me. I bought the really cheesy flavoured ones. The packet is metallic blue in colour with yellow writing. Wotsits are part of Walkers 99 calories or less range. They contain no artificial colours or flavours and the crisps are suitable for vegetarians and coeliacs. They do contain milk and maize though so are not suitable for anyone who is allergic to those ingredients. I could not find the weight of the crisps on the bag but each pack will give you 95kcals, 1.0g of protein, 9.8g of carbohydrates of which 1.5g are sugars, 5.8g of fat of which 0.7g are saturates, 0.2g of fibre and 0.14g of sodium. Wotsits are baked instead of fried which helps to make them healthier for you. When you open the packet, you can immediately smell the cheesy aroma. The crisps themselves are an orange colour from the paprika in them. They are so light to eat as you can see the air bubbles in the Wotsits. I could eat these all day without feeling sick or getting bored of them. They have a lovely cheesy flavour that is not overpowering and it leaves only a faint after taste so you can't still taste them about an hour after you have eaten them. I personally like to keep the wotsit in my mouth until it melts before swallowing it. It doesn't take long to melt but of course you could just eat them normally. Wotsits are much better for you than standard crisps as the nutritional information shows. Definitely one I will keep buying.

                A great tasting snack at only 95 calories per bag, so you don't have to feel guilty!

                Ah Wotsits, the cheesy taste of my childhood! I used to have them a lot as a child, but I hadn't had them for years, so when I saw a multipack of them on offer in my local supermarket, I couldn't resist buying them to see if they stood the test of time! The packaging has changed a little I think from what I remember, the pakcets are now mostly made from shiny foil which makes them look more up to date, it's nice to see they're still blue though as it makes them still look recognisable! It also clearly states on the front of the packet that they are only 95 calories per bag! This is something that is very good to me as I often feel very guilty indulging in packets of crisps and other snacks, so to know that I am not being so bad is a nice feeling, it's good to see how clear the calories are marked too unlike the confusing little charts that they sometimes add to these kind of products. They are now made by walkers too I see rather than golden wonder, so I was worried that the taste may have changed, but after trying a packet recently, I can assure you that they taste just as good as I remember from all those years ago! The cheese puffs seem about the same size as they were before and the amount in the bag doesn't seem to have changed either, whilst a packet looks quite small, you can get quite a lot of wotsits in each packet. They are a nice light snack too so they wont spoil your appetite too much or make you feel bloated or anything. It may be my imagination (or bad memory!) but they seem a little cheesier, but very tasty. They are a bit messy to eat, you will find that you have cheesy bits all over your fingers and mouth afterwards, so not very easy to eat on the go I must say, but the cheese does wash/wipe off easily enough so all is not lost! Wotsits make a nice snack which wont make you feel too guilty if you're trying to eat healthy or lose weight at only 95 calories, you could do much worse! They're still very tasty and cheesy, and if like me you had them as a child, it's a nice nostalgic taste of the past. :)

                An Alternative to Crisps

                Walkers Wotsits - Really Cheesy Flavour Wotsits were originally made by Golden Wonder and Golden Wonder first began producing them in 1960. When Golden Wonder was bought over in June 2002 the new buyers sold Wosits to the crisp giants 'Walkers'. Wosits come in a very shiny blue foil packet with Wotsits written across the front in big bright orange letters - they are hard to miss. The shiny blue foil packet works well to keep Wosits fresh, once opened the pack is not resealable. Wosits measure about 2 cm long and one cm wide and there is a distinctive curve in the middle of each Wosit. They are made from puffed maise and are coated with a thick cheesy substance for flavour. Ingredients in Wosits are as follows: Maize, Vegetable Oil, Cheese Flavour [Cheese Powder (7%), Lactose (from Milk), Flavour Enhancer (Disodium 5' Ribonucleotide), Colours (Paprika Extract, Annatto), Natural Flavourings], Salt and Potassium Chloride. Each single pack has 95 calories and 1.5g of sugar, 5.8g of fat and 0.4g of salt so from this you can see that even though there are not many calories in a pack they are high in both sugar and fat. One pack of Wosits contains the following: Energy 397kj/95 Kcal Protein 1.0g Carbohydrates 9.8g (of which sugars) 1.5g Fat 5.8g (of which saturates) 0.7g Fibre 0.2g Sodium 0.14g - Equivalent as salt 0.35g Wosits are sold in almost all shops that sell food beacuse they are so very popular. They are usually sold in either single packs or multi packs that contain 6 packs. Wosits are said to be found in one in 3 lunch boxes in primary schools across the Uk, they are one of Walkers best selling brands. I really like Wosits, they taste very cheesy, the cheese taste is quite strong with a very nice flavour, they are not at all sickly. They are not greasy and are very light in texture and really easy to eat. I usually find one pack of Wosits is enough for me and to be honest the calorie count of Wosits is a saving on Walkers normal crisps that have around 130 calories a pack so Wotsits beat this with about 30 less calories. Lots of children love them and because of their 95 calorie count they work out a bit healthier than many other crisps. Good for lunch boxes but one pack a day is more than enough! Hence if you really need a packet of crisps the go for Wosits at all times!

                Empty some bags into a casserole dish and stick Eggheads on.

                I like Wotsits, I really do, I just find them a little impractical.. A childhood favourite along with the Kinder Surprise, Scampi & Lemon Nik Naks, those biscuity fish and chip things, raisin and biscuit Yorkies, 5,4,3,2,1s, pickled onion Space Raiders, Yes cakes and the Cadbury's Fuse (yes, I was a fat child) but in recent years i've not turned to them, discarded in adolescence along with my troll doll collection and the flag on my mountain bike. A more mature hamm_sandwich has turned to more mature snacks. Kettle Chips and custard creams are the wallpaper of my cupboard now but a supermarket promotion combined with a bout of gluttony conspired to help me bring home a twelve pack of these (Really) cheesy puffed snacks last week for £1.25 (normally £2.50) and i've learnt how to fit them back into my life. The first hurdle here, is eating them. As i've become larger and hungrier with age, i've developed a crisp eating technique that allows me to maximise the amount I can pass from bag to mouth in one gesture without resorting to the cheaty bag to mouth option. Four Hula Hoops can be handled by an experienced snacker between thumb and fore finger with no need for a downward glance but Wotsits I find are a more unpredictable snack with rogue Wotsits always trying to get down into the gap between the cushion and the arm rest of my couch. The solution to this micro-crisis lies in the grabber manoeuvre or teddy picker technique if you're an Arctic Monkey. Away from judging eyes i'll empty three (ridiculously light multi-) packets into a bowl and get to work. The problem here is that they are just TOO small. Compared to the cheesy puff supermarket own brand alternatives these just aren't built for the average sausage fingered man. When you get it right though, you do realise that these are the real deal with the appropriate crunch and dissolve balance. They're still unnaturally orange which is rather fun and the bright cheese dust will stick to your fingertips. I tend to wipe them clean now instead of sucking my fingers. some things you just can't get away with now. Like a lot of Walkers offerings a pack of Wotsits is a tiny snack masquerading as a healthy one with the boast of a tiny 95 calories but your 95 calories could be better spent elsewhere if you're looking to cure a hunger pang because this is on its own a sub-snack or micro snack. Maybe buy a biscuit. My multipack only had cheesy bags inside but the lesser spotted beef variety is well worth seeking out if you're a fan of these corn puffs and I must admit that i'll probably grab another bag before the co-op does its promo change. I don't know if the prior affiliation with Golden Wonder may be a stumbling block but I think these could really benefit from a retro relaunch like they did with Monster Munch recently. Oh, and an adult size as well.

                  Walkers Wotsits Really Cheesy - cheesy puffs

                  Wotsits Really Cheesy are a cheesy puff, which were owned by Golden Wonder, but were sold off in 2002 to Walkers. I love cheesy Wotsits but I am not keen on either the Prawn Cocktail or Flamin' Hot flavours. I did however love the beef variety and wish they would come back. Wotsits come in eye-catching, shiny blue packaging, with bright yellow/orange lettering on them. The packs are the new, popular foil type, which do make a good job of keeping the crisps fresh. When you first open the pack, you can't help but notice the unmistakeable cheesy aroma. These crisps are very strong in smell, as well as flavour. Inside, the puffs are bright orange in colour, covered in flavouring and extremely messy to eat. They are a hazard in small hands, as they stain any clothing they come into contact with and these orange, Wotsit stains are hard to remove. When I finish eating a pack of Wotsits, I have to lick my fingers, there's just no way around it! Wotsits are very light in texture and are baked rather than fried. They are also very crunchy, but will melt in your mouth when softened. I do find if a put too many in my mouth at once though, they will stick to my teeth and picking at your teeth is not a good look! A 19g of Wotsits contains 99 calories. I do think 19 grams is a bit mean and they do not last long or fill you up! Wotsits are suitable for both vegetarians and coeliacs. Tesco sell Wotsits in the following pack sizes: 19g single bag - 45p!!! 70g bag - 99p Multipack of 10 - £2.49 I love Wotsits, mainly because of their strong cheesy flavour. They may be light in calories, but they are also light in weight with 19 grams being a bit on the mean side. They are also quite high in price for such a small bag. I will go on buying them, but will stock up more when they are on special offer. In my opinion, they are a 4 star product because the packs are just too small and the price is a bit too high!

                    mmm a delicious snack

                    So are they really cheesy? The answer is yes and no. Really cheesy would be if they were flavoured like Saint Agure or Blue Danish. They don't come anywhere near that toxic level of cheesiness, which is probably just as well or offices and classrooms would reek to high heaven. You can buy these on their own, or as a multipack. Expect to pay up to three pounds for a large twelve pack of these, though they are often on offer. If you have never had a Wotsit before then you are in for a treat. They are shaped like very small...erm, no best not say that, they are shaped like small sausage type things, with a nice sexy curve to them, which is begging you to caress it. You shouldn't get excited about the shape of a crisp, but let's face it, the common flat crisp is dull, the Wotsit is much more fanciable, which gives them an edge at parties. The texture of a Wotsit must be applauded. You have two options, you can either crunch into it and munch down on the cereal like grain of it, or you can leave it to slowly melt on the tongue. I prefer the latter. I like to slide my tongue all over the outer layer, removing any last trace of cheese and then I allow the exposed Wotsit to nestle on my tongue and burn away like a candle in the night. It can take up to a minute to let the saliva saturate it to the point of extinction. And then the process begins again with a brand new Wotsit. A bag contains enough for a lunchtime snack or an evening treat. The cheese flavour is synthetic but appealing and will leave you wanting a glass of water. I prefer them to ordinary crisps and I am a Wotsit buyer. Recommended and not too unhealthy either, as they have curbed the salt content of late.

                    The only cheese crisps I actually like.

                    I go through phases of going crazy for Wotsits, and then completely forgetting them. In terms of the crisp market, these guys are different. They aren't a regular potato chip, but rather what is known as a "corn puff" in other parts of the world. This means they are a lot more soft, light and easier to eat. The texture alone is delectable, and for me one of the big selling points. It really is a nice alternative to the sometimes hard ridge cut crisps on the market. But what about the flavour? Wotsits are renowned for their prime cheese flavour. Now, you might be surprised to discover that I actually really hate the taste of real cheese. The only cheese related products that I actually get any enjoyment out of is Pizza and Wotsits Cheese Puffs! For me, the flavour isn't so much cheese as it's extremely tasty. And with every new design of pack over the last few years saying "Really Cheesy" or "Even cheesier", for me, the flavour has got better. It is now more edible than ever. Obviously, it goes without saying that it may not be the healthiest snack - yet with the new packs at just 95 calories, it doesn't seem that bad! Another consideration of course it the smell. Remember to brush your teeth and take a mint afterwards! They are really cheesy after all!
