    As embarrassing as it is to say, they give me horrendous wind. It is awful. And often trapped. I am sure there is an alternative but can't for the life of me remember what it was?:confused:

    You can have quite a few. Sainsburys be good to yourself, kellogs fibre plus, asda do some but can't remember which. There are some more too. Do you have access to the website? Go to latest healthy extras and they're all listed.

    I highly reccomend the kellogs fobre plus bars (milk choc my fav) BUT you can have 1 for HEb or 5syns.

    Beaware that more then 1 can cause really bag tummy discomfort - it did in my case anyway. 1 is fine though & they are really really nice :D

    I'd highly recommend the Kellogg's Fibre Plus chocolate bars. You can only have one for a Hex B and they're 5.5 syns but they're worth it! ;)

    Weetabix make a bar called 'Oaty Bar', quite like a flapjack :D - only 1bar for a B choice, but only 3.5syns each if you are counting ...

    Hahaha, no but you might be a bit more "fluffy" than normal!

    I think there is an important lesson in this, actually. When you ask a consultant at group about something being a Hex or the number of syns, we have to remember that they are actually human beings and not computers loaded with information that they can just reel off to us. Much better to find out syn values and what is a Hex and what isnt from the website and online information.

    Asda real fruit bars?

    Can anybody tell me what they actually look like? I've hunted high and low at our local store, but can't find them. Are they the fruit and fibre bars? Many thanks.
