    Hi all - just adding up my weeks syns :eek:/ During the week I had a moon shaped Greek biscuit. It's buttery shortbread with whole almonds in it and covered in icing sugar (yes it was blumin lovely and there was no stopping me) but because it was brought in from Greece I've no idea of the calorific value of it ? It weighed about twice as much as 2 sticks of shortbread fingers so with the icing sugar and almonds shall I class it as 10 syns do you think ? Sorry can't be of any further help - just shouldn't have eaten it I guess but then it would have been rude not too :eek:) xx
