    Wetherspoons Jacket Potatoes

    WELL WELL WELL, I have just recived a reply from slimming world here it is


    Dear Kay
    Thank you for your email. We have been assured by J D Weatherspoon that they do not deep fry the jacket potatoes and we have based our Syn values on the nutritional information they have provided us with. I hope this helps with your enquiry and wish you every success with your weight loss campaign.
    Kind regards
    Beverly

    I Used to work for Wetherspoons, The jacket potatoes come in Pre cooked and frozen, we just microwaved them to cook. I suspect they rub oil on the skin be for they are cooked and frozen to crisp the skin. We would just micro them for 4 to 5 mins and the skin was already crispy.

    I can see where the myth came from, last years food directory had the 8 oz sirloin steak, jacket and side salad at a whopping 24 syns
    People tried to make sense of the shockingly high syns


    Where as now if you look online they don't list the whole meal but it says on EE Jacket with no butter, mayo or salad cream is 0 syns and 8oz sirlion with all visible fat removed is 0 syns so as long as you don't put the dressing on the salad you can have the same meal for a grand total of 0
