    Hi Everyone

    I was thinking today about things that you may have tried that just wasnt worth the syns, in other words it was bad value for the syns (just like you'd say bad value for money) or something where you really dont get very much of the food for the syn value.

    Here are mine:

    Bad value: sultanas (28g for 4 syns)
    Good value: 2 alpen light bars (6syns or HB)
    Favourite free: strawberries :)

    Add yours so we can share our findings !

    what an interesting thread!!

    Bad value: special K (any variety that's not sustain) - 5 syns for 28g!!!! sometimes I really don't understand how is special K with red berries equally as bad as frostie or coco pops?

    Good value: 2 alpen light bars (6syns or HB) <-- can't agree more on this one

    Favourite free: mixed berries with fat free yogurt

    Oh I know what you mean Dreamaholic, for me a serving of cereal should be 100g ! Although I do manage with 28g of porridge if I can bulk it out with berries, grated apple and yog to make a proper bowl full :)

    poor value - 50g salted peanuts = 15 syns its less than 2 handfuls so stay away from them at a party!
    good value - 28g chorizo = 2.5 syns it goes a long way and tastes soooo good with a tomato pasta on EE
    free - strawberries and rasperries with FF fromage frias

    Bad value - I don't think anything is bad value. I guess my least favourite use of syns is things like dried fruit, especially dried apricots which I love!

    Good value - 4 ryvita or a co-op pitta. A winner every time!

    Free food - It's got to be SW chips :)

    I miss crisps. Is there any variety that's relatively less syn-ful? Like sunbites? (they are wholegrain?) I would have thought they are ok and healthier than some other varieties, but I just checked and it's 6 syns!!! Sometimes I really don't understand this syn system.
