    I'm going to the cinema tonight and my friend keeps texting me about sharing Popcorn...prob the sweet one.

    I have said no but if asked again when there i may cave in.

    Does anyone know the syns for popcorn??

    I am taking my Alpen bars and some grapes in my bag...just don't know if I'll be able to resist when there :cry:

    Hi :) Just for future reference, my local Greggs have started to do bags of "skinny" popcorn as an alternative to crisps. I had a quick look at them the other day and if I remember correctly they are about 5 syns per bag, and come in salted or sweet. Could be worth a try :) xx

    Home popped corn is 4.5 syns for 25g, I guess as popcorn is so light that would be quite a lot.

    Went to see The Inbetweeners Movie last week and took a packet of the light sweeted popcorn with me. Very very yummy indeed! And just 5 syns, brilliant :) Would definitely reccommend it to all you popcorn lovers out there xx

    if i go to the cinema i take either a bar of chocolate which fits into my syns like a curly wurly (6) or a Crunchie (9.5) or a packet of lovehearts (8) or some flyin saucers only 1 syn for 4 sweets and last time i took a packet of mikado they are 0.5 syn a stick for all flavours and they were really good didnt feel deprived at all but did take the excess mikado out of the packet before going because i wouldn't be counting in the cinema!!
