# Thread: The 'Look What We Found!' Range

1. ## The 'Look What We Found!' Range

Thought I'd make people aware that the 250g pot of Tees Valley Beef Casserole is only 1.5 syns. It is quite expensive at £2.99 but it was really useful as an 'emergency' meal when I was at work and hadn't planned my lunch. Also, very tasty and filling

There are other Tees Valley meals in the range which, mostly, are low syn but other meals from different areas can be quite high.

2. oooh where can I buy them?

3. I got mine from Sainsburys but I've seen them in Tesco and Morrisons too, they're usually near the express rice and noodles.

4. Thanks ill keep an eye out next time I'm shopping. Sound great for a quick meal

5. Have I calculated this right 10.8 syns!?

6. 1 syn on EE and Red, 8.5 on Green - you may have got such a high syn value by calculating the whole thing rather than just the syns, if that makes sense?!

Thank you Hediseeky. I'm a bit confused now, I calculated the values on the packet.

Per 100g 80 kcal
divide by 20, then by 100 finally multiply by weight 270g (was planning on eating the lot)

Where am I going wrong?

8. I just checked it on the SW website and it came up as only 1 syn for the whole thing.

I think it's less syns than your calculation because, when using the 1 syn per 20 calories rule, it only works if there is no free food allowance (chocolate bars, sweets etc).

Does that make sense because I don't know if I'm explaining it very well! Maybe one of the more experienced members can help?

You explained it exactly right the 1 syn for every 20 cals only applies if the item doesn't have a free food allowance. You'd need to use the syn calculator or syns online for anything that is based round a free food enjoy

10. Thanks both of you. I looked through the search engine, and found out my answer.....I need to be a member to work out syns which contain free food.

11. Some of the "look what we found" range is on special offer at Aldi from this Sunday. I have deleted the email I got from them now, but you can find out more from their website.
