Wheelz

Wheelz were crisp snacks, similar in texture to Monster Munch (which were a lot bigger than they are today, by the way!) and were the shape of a horse's cartwheel. I think they were about in the late 70s and definitely were around in the 80s.There were at least two flavours of Wheelz but I only ever used to have the onion and vinegar flavour. Much missed!

    i remember the Wheelz very well, they were my favourite crisps in the 80s. They came in a large bag and the flavours were onion and vinegar ( blue bag), natural flavour ( red bag) and mexican flavour (orange bag). i think the brand was Nibbit?.Wish they would bring them back in to production.

    They were gorgeous! They were only sold in Quik Save supermarkets in the UK. They were made by a company called Nibbits. They came in 3 flavours - plain (red bag), Onion & Vinegar (blue bag) and my absolute favourite Mexican Spice (orange bag) I'd love these crisps to come back! There are large mix bags of crisps sold in M&S that have the exact same wheel shaped crisps mixed in with other types. Flavours are salt and black pepper and sour cream and jalapeño. No where near as good as Wheelz were but worth it for a small reminisce!!
