The Wotsit measures 0.9cm in length and 0.4cm in width, making it tiny in comparison to any of the other regular-sized snacks – which are around 5cm.Elisha, from Royston, Hertfordshire, had to react quickly to stop her six-year-old border terrier cross, Cinderella, eating it straight out of her hand.
The teen, who works in a kid’s fun barn, said: ‘I was watching a Netflix series trying to eat the Wotsits as quickly as I could because my dog is obsessed with them.
‘She sits on my shoulder trying to nab the crisps when they’re travelling from the packet to my mouth.
‘When I saw this Wotsit I had to protect it at all costs. Thankfully, I was able to put it to the side without her getting her paws on it.’
Elisha may have found the smallest Wotsit but elsewhere, they’ve been working on the largest version of the cheese puff.
Earlier in the month, a ten-metre long Wotsit was created, breaking the Guinness world record. The snack was created at the Walkers factory in Leicester in an attempt to break the world record for the longest puffed corn snack on the planet. After adjudicator Paulina Sapinska measured the Wotsit, she declared it was exactly 10.66m and ruled it was a world record. They did the attempt to celebrate the launch of Wotsits Giants – which are twice the size of the classic puffed snack pieces. Speaking at the time, Wayne Rowland, from Walkers said: ‘When the team called me up and suggested this I couldn’t believe it – we’re always looking for ways of inventing new, innovative creations, but it’s not often you get briefed to make the world’s biggest Wotsit.
Meeting your new puppy, kitten or any other pet can be an exciting experience. Your pet, however, has some adjusting to do. New sights, smells and sounds can be overwhelming for the little guy and keeping a calm household is important.
‘This just proves that size really does matter when it comes to snacking. We’re going get it mounted and display it on the wall at the factory!’
We would’ve just eaten it.
