    Hi everyone!
    Ok, as a little treat tonight I'm going to allow myself a hot chocolate- I have Options Belgian Chocolate flavour, Options Wicked White Chocolate and Skinny Cow hot chocolate (original) sachets.
    Could anyone tell me the syn values for these please, and which one is the 'best'?
    Thankyou ^_^
    p.s. sneaky little extra question, but is ALL fat free natural yogurt free on both days?
    Xx:p

    Just for future reference, I personally think the BEST hot chocolate is Highlights dark chocolate- and it's only 1.5 syns per sachet. It tastes really chocolaty and is as near as the real stuff that you can get

    My favourite is the Belgian Choc Options one. I have some skinny Cow ones in the cupboard and whilst they are 'ok', they are missing 'something' and never seem to dissolve properly.

    I haven't tried the Skinny Cow - just because their flavours aren't a bit run-of-the-mill for me. The Highlights are a bit the same for choice of flavours but they certainly taste better & mix much easier. The Options have a brilliant range of flavours - although I haven't been able to find one of my fav's (Going Bananas) for ages - most supermarkets just have the orange, mint or turkish delight. Options also do a very nice Indulgence range - Cherry or Fudge (only found in Morrisons so far), but they're in slightly larger sachets so are 3 syns each. I also love the Horlicks, but I've got a jar of the Very Low Fat and 11g (approx 4 tsp) is only 2 syns.

    All that talk of chocolate .......... I think I'll put the kettle on.. Mmmm
