I remember these but, I don't remember them being nacho cheese. The ones I remember tasted like corn chips, and we called them Corkers?

Could it be "Nacho Twisters" by Wise? I keep searching with my boyfriend for Spirals, but when I found the Twisters, I realized that these were what I remembered from elementary school (early 90s, really).

I loved Spirals! I remember that they were cheese flavored and we had them back in middle school. That was around 1989/90 in Fort worth Texas. I miss those they were so good.

I remember the chips called (spirals) they were the best! I remember the flavor behing nacho cheese. This was around my six grade year in 1995-1996. I wish i could find these chips again. So great.My wife argue's with me all the time, that the spirals were the frito lays flavor twist's. I dont think so, flavor twist were actually chedder ranch. So if anyone finds these, please reply back!

I remember these from when I was in middle school! There was an ice cream man that would park outside the school and we would walk on over and buy snacks everyday after school! Needless to say he would sell these on his truck and I would buy them religiously!! Then one day I went on over and asked for my beloved "Spirals" and he had said that they were discontinued!! It was the saddest day of my middle school years! I wish they would bring these back!!!!

Does anyone recall who made them? I will write a letter to the company. I want some so bad too! However, I am curious to know if think they would taste as good to me now.. you know your taste buds change as you age...

I remember these fondly. I first started seeing them in 1987 right before I started 4th grade. I loved all kinds of nacho cheese corn chip type snacks, so I had to try these when I first saw them. I loved them. Wish they could bring them back.

I'm not sure if they renamed them. I'm in agreement with so many of you. These were my favorite chips at the time. They were called spirals and they were manufactured by wise.

I remember these from school as well. They were amazing. I finally found them not long ago under Wise snacks. They are called Wise Nacho Twisters. However, it appears that wise has now discontinued them which makes me very sad.
