    I'm just on my way out, but if you look on Asda online, you can look at the nutritional information on most things. You dont need to put any personal details in, just click 'start shopping'.

    Hey. I've just looked on myfitnesspal and I don't think you are allowed either as they're over 5gs of fat in every 100gs. Sorrry

    just went onto the options website to look at there fat contents and each options sachet contains only 0.9gs of fat (mint)

    single serving
    (with 200ml water)

    Energy
    KJ 144
    Kcal 34
    Protein 1.3g
    Carbohydrate 5.2g
    Of which sugars 3.8g
    Fat 0.9g
    Of which saturates 0.6g
    Fibre 2.0g
    Sodium 0.13g
    Equivalent as salt 0.33g

    Trouble choosing which standard edition? Just try all our hot chocolate Options!

    But dont forget that that is per serving, not 100g. We have to go by the grammes of fat per 100g, not serving. Its actually 8.3g fat per 100g, so over normal allowance since we're not supposed to consume anything with more than 5g per 100g.

    Also, try with caution if you still want to try it. Not everyone will have the same luck when trying things over our limits. Like some people can eat eggs that have 5g of fat in the yolk, but some people react to it.

    are u refering to the snack a jacks? or the options drinks?

    that fat content i quoted 0.9 gs was for the whole sachet which is only 11gs and the whole thing contains only 0.9gs of fat.

    i dont think u would drink this drink over 100gs for a single drink. u only need 11gs for one drink.

    so it i dont know how it would make upto 8.3gs of fat?

    It would be 8.3gs of you had 100gs. Which (I think) means it's 8.3% fat and we can only have up to 5% fat. So no matter how many grams you have (I.e the 11g sachets) 8.3% of it will be fat.

    Hi, ALL hot chocolate drinks are out, even the so called healthy ones!!

    no more than 5gs per 100gs.
    no more than 15gs per meal.

    even if you are going to eat the smallest piece, you have to look at the per 100gs info.

    i think the only snack a jacks you can have are the caramel ones. :)

    But it is over the allowance. Xenical rules are not to eat anything that has more than 5g of fat per 100g. On xenical you should only look at the per 100g column. It doesnt matter if you have 1g or 100g of something, it is over the fat allowance.

    Holliekin and bunny-hops are correct. I hope between us we have explained it well. Its so hard to write what i mean.

    I'm not saying don't drink it, but your not within the rules by doing so.
