    Tesco BNS & falafel salad

    Hey guys...
    Just wondering if someone can confirm if these are still syn free?

    I know they used to be 2, then listed as free but when I got some today, I noticed the calorie content had gone from 255 to 287 and although we don't count cals, I'm just wary I should be counting them?

    Thanks in advance xx

    awww i can NOT believe it

    i drove 30 mins to a tesco that sells them cos my local one doesn't.
    bought 2 - one to have tomorrow and the other on wed at work - to save me making a lunch that day etc.

    thanks so much for checking for me...but i wish we'd "met" on better terms xx

    Don't let the syns mar your enjoyment - they're only 6 each after all so you can perhaps shave those syns off your day or weekly total.

    Would you perhaps try making your own? There's free falafel recipes, roast some BNS (I only found BNS when I joined SW & I flippin love it) & adding bits of salad.

    i do like them...but there's no way i'd use 6 syns on them (not when they've been free!!) especially cos, as you say, i could make something like it myself.
    they're so handy to grab for lunch when i'm working but i'm more miffed that i travelled that way today, and was buzzing that i'd finally found a store who had them

    och well...not to worry (she says! lol) x

    Looking at the ingredients, both the peppers and BNS are roasted in oil. Then there's also oil, flour and sugar in the falafels. They're advertising it as yoghurt dressing but it also has oil, full fat sour cream, regular cream, flour and sugar. I guess all those little bits add up.

    You poor thing Miss K. You are really feeling that aren`t you. I had just posted on your other thread about the syns.

    It could help when they change things - the shops that is - if they put "new recipe" on the items. We get used to having a certain product and are pi**ed when they change and we don`t know. Now I go to group and didn`t hear anything and I have on line, but don`t look up everything I buy just to be sure. It can really sabotege our eating plan. Might have got the info in SW mag, but I find that a waste of money just to get updates sometimes.

    I try to get a little peak if I can sometimes. What about having one of them after dinner when you know you have enough syns. Ah but they don`t last long do they.

    they were fab for being free food....WERE being the operative word lol

    i won't be counting 6 syns...think of the chocolate i could have for that

    i could use the cauldron falafels for 1 syn each and make my own salad i suppose.

    they're still good for 287 calories....but as we don't count calories on SW...it's not valid really x

    It's a bummer when you think you re being good only to find that the syns are high. I got stuck in traffic and my lunch had got all soggy so bought what believed to be a healthy sandwich , ended up 15 syns ��
    fast approaching 40 , managed to get into the 12 st bracket, cheerio 13 2nd attempt at SW but this time really 'getting' it

    If you always do what you ve always done , you ll always get what you always got

    Wouldn't mind so much if it was very nice or had cheese in but it was just chicken and stuffing .. Boring
