Hello,
What's this called in English? I mean in the USA and UK. Do you call it "cheetoz"?
Children and even adults love eating that.

Please have look at these pictures of the word I'm looking for:

Link 2. = https://www.google.com/search?q=%D9%BE%D9%81%DA%A9&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=gV4YU9-4N4mKrQfumICYDA&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAQ&biw=1024&bih=618

Thank you.

In the UK and USA they're called "cheetos", ending with an 's' instead of a 'z'. I think they're both pronounced the same: <i>chee-toe-zz</i>.

They don't really have these in the UK except at specialist importers of US foods, as far as I know.

The English version would be Cheesy Wotsits, or generic cheese puffs. There may be other brands that I can't think of at the moment, but Cheetos are an expensive rarity here, I believe, as are Fritos.

I'd call them cheezies, regardless of the brand.

Cheetos or cheesies. We have them in Canada, and they give one orange fingers.

I had to smile. It almost looks like a form of English.

"Repeat - Crunchees
and repeat Just Snackit"

Then on the bag itself: Repeat Just snacks

Sorry to go off topic but I read those advertisements in Finnish and the language seems something totally counter cultural and wonderful at the time for me. I love the repeating vowels! UUTUUS!!

Which one is more common in the UK? "Quavers" or "Wotsits"
