Apparently, cheesy Wotsits are almost if not entirely, chemically the same as those wotsits that are sometimes used for packaging, inside a parcel.
The packaging ones are definitely less cheesy though.

as someone who can't remember flavoured crisps growing up, yellow for cheese makes sense.

Nope. I remember when I was much younger than now, having Hedgehog Flavoured crisps. Little known fact, is trading standards took them to court as there was no actual hedgehog flavouring in them. So, the company found a bunch of gypsies that actually baked hedgehogs and ate them - and they developed a flavour that tasted like it, and change the packaging to Hedgehog Flavour rather than Hedgehog Flavoured and it satisfied trading standards!

They also did traffic warden flavour, but I never tried those to my knowledge.

I remember them, they were like slightly spicy beef if I recall correctly. Don't remember the court case or the gypsies though.

That's similar to the reason Nik Naks had to change the name to Scampi & Lemon Flavour, originally it was marketed as Fingered Girlfriend Flavour..........

Ah mate, I've not had Scampi & Lemon Nik Naks in ****ing ages.

I'm going to have to pop out and lunchtime and trawl all the local newsagents to find some now, aren't I?

Green should be Cheese & Onion.

I would like to make an honourable mention for Frazzles, they are stupendously good.

All be it due to fat bastards that over eat and weights have now changed you only get about 4 crisps in a packet now.

^ That's why they now have "grab bags" that are meant to be shared, whatever that means.

Blue cheese flavoured Jacob's cheeslets is the way to go, I eat them secretly as my 2 dogs are fond of them too and they are only small packets
