ok ive the pack her with me and my points finder thing:

Ingredients: potatoes and sunflower oil

calories per pack cooked: 163
sat fat: 0.5

and on my points finder that works out at 2.5 points but the book says 4pts for small box??? but maybe thats 100g and the box i have dont weigh that i doubt they do cuz you really only get about 10 chips or so!!!

maybe they made them a bit more healty? if they are only 2.5 now i would buy them again. do u have a recent book or an old one? they could have changed something in the ingrediants to make them lower in sat fat or something ?

ya im thinkin thats wat happened its a fairly new book but im guessin the points finder would be spot on, ya most foods seem to be aimin for lower fat nowadays maybe they used to use a different oil and now the sunflower oil makes it bit better, ya theyre tasty enough tomorro night im havin 2 boxes thatl only be 5 points with homemade chicken stir fry that way wen boyfriend gets chinese i wount feel deprived :)

or even one box and 2 slices of bread, chip sandwich mm
i must go get myself some, they always come in handy,i stopped yrs ago getting them over been 4 points.

It is the black box for the microwave isnt it? Is it McCains that do them?

ya its the black microwave box one the macains if you check the bak jus make sure the cals per pack microwaved are 163 and sat fat 0.5 to be sure to be sure :) god its funny how a point or two makes us crazy but then again by goin over two points every day for a week thats 14 points ove for the week it al adds up unfortunately!! not sure about the ove chips, the thick ones are definately healthier less fat cuz they dont absorb as much ilol have to buy some in the weekly shop and do some weighin :)
