    I was at the fun fair this evening with the kids and couldn't resist a mouthful of candy floss.
    I am normally good at resisting but it was too much temptation.
    Thought I had blown my remaining 7 syns but apparently the average candy floss is 3 syns , even though I only had a mouthful I am more than happy to count the whole 3 syns for it !!
    Is this right ,seems too good to be true!!!

    I didnt believe it until I saw it on the website either! Good huh, but it does say average portion or something like that, goodness knows how much that actually is.

    Yes it's a bit like how long is a piece of string lol!!
    I am thinking 1 syn would probably cover my mouthful but I'll count 3 to be on the safe side either way.
    If I had known it was so low I would have had a whole one,good thing the fun fair is here till the 27th ha ha ha!!

    Dont quite understand how its so low as its pretty much pure sugar! But yeah, I would say one mouthful would warrent one syn, but if you have syns to spare then count it as 3 to be on the safe side.

    I think it must be because there is no fat in sugar only carbs which are SW friendly anyway??
    I may be wrong though :S lol

    just found this on a web site from a candy floss machine compnay "A usual serving of candy floss on a stick from a candy floss maker is about an ounce and an ounce has about 105 calories in it." If that is the case, a typical fun fair stick would be 5 syns basing it on 1syn for 20 calories

    I'm always dubious about what an average stick of candy floss is considered to be!

    I know I got a tub of it at the cinema and it turned out to be about 15 syns if I used the 1 syn = 20 cals rule!
