Is it not on the Wii u? I swear I saw it before but now all that comes up is the GBA port. Am I going daft here or what?

Only the GBA version on Wii U.
If you want the SNES version you gonna have to buy a SNES Classic.

And the SNES version definitely wasn't added then removed right? I'm losing it XD So is the GBA version worth picking up then?

It's speculated that SNES games Yoshi's Island were never put on the VC because the game uses the Super FX chip (actually, the Super FX 2 chip) and that for some reason the VC setup won't work with any games that use the chip. Which could also be why other games that used the chip like Star Fox were never on the VC.
It's amazing how people hang around message boards of games they don't like

Actually people say that there may be patent / rights issues somehow.
It has to be something like this. Nintendo is obviously capable of properly and accurately emulating it (even with the horrible frame rate of Star Fox).
