How many syns are in Wotsits?

Walkers Wotsits are among my personal favourite and particularly the favourite of my toddler daughter! They’re small, moreish and out of all cheesy crisps they are the ones with the deepest flavours and a satisfying powdery texture. In the UK crisp scene they regularly place in top 10 lists of the nation’s favourite.

One of the biggest selling points is also the low number of calories and therefore syns, making them an ideal snack for someone with a sweet tooth but not wanting to go overboard.

So, how many syns are in a loose bag of Wotsits or a multi pack bag? Let’s find out.
