    Hiya

    As far as i'm aware you can have 2 as a HEXB
    If you don't use them as a HEX then you use the rule 20 cals = 1 syn.
    They work out roughly 3 - 3.5 syns per bar i believe
    I agree they are yummy

    They are only 3 syns as when you look at the nutritional info they are actually closer to 60 calories than 70. So save yourself that extra half syn. :D

    Okay, I managed to track these down at Sainsbury and bought four boxes as they were on offer. But I have to say that I really don't think they are that great! Not particularly chocolatey at all and really quite dry. I suppose I should have anticipated it as the chocolate and orange ones have always been my least favourite flavour.

    I love Alpen light bars but I must say I'm not a great fan of the chocolate ones but may try heating them a bit and see how that goes. I love the summer fruits and apple and sultana ones with a cup of tea - delicious!!

    If I'm going shopping I always put one in my bag to have with a cup of coffee when I'm out too, saves me going for the bigger syn option.

    I'm with Circes & FD - the new double choc bars were a let-down for me. They're OK but nowt special. Fudge & Apple/Sultana are my fave's.
