    I have been using the Briannas Blue Cheese and Caesar salad dressings long before I joined SW.
    When I joined SW I calculated the syns using the nutritional information on their website, as I thought, and worked out that a serving (30ml/2tbls) of blue cheese dressing was 3 syns and caesar 4 syns, which I was delighted at, because they are delicious.
    Couldn't get a caesar one last week when I went shopping so bought a Waitrose half fat Caesar dressing thinking it would be loads less, but when I calculated it had 4 1/2 syns for the same serving size!
    Obviously this sent alarm bells ringing, and I recalculated the syns of the Briannas dressings, and nearly fell on the floor, because the blue cheese was 6 syns and the caesar 7 1/2 syns!
    Now, I'm hoping my second calculation is wrong, but somehow I think I know it's right!:cry:
    Can someone please double check for me?
