    A couple of weeks ago I had a bar of Green & Blacks dark chocolate with little pieces of crystalised Ginger in it- it was LOVELY! I worked out the syns on the SW website for the whole bar & then duly ate it. Now I have a bit more experience with SW, I am thinking that can't be right- only 6.5 syns?

    I wouldn't mind having a bar tonight, but am worried about picking it up, taking it home & working out the syns again- what if I can't have it? How depressing would that be!!!

    Does anyone think that's right- or better still, know the syn value, as I don't have the nutrirtial info to work it out!!!

    Anything like this is 1 syn per 20 calories.
    If only it was 6.5 syns for the whole bar......

    you possibly selected a free food by accident, or entered the incorrect weight/nutritional info.

    these type of items have no free food allowance, so you are better off using the snackulator or using the 1 syn for every 20 calories.
