    I bought these yesterday under the assumption that they would be free as they are '100% frozen pineapple, nothing added' but according to the magazine they are 1.5 syns. Why is this? I've always got frozen berries in the freezer and have never counted syns for them as they are 100% fruit- should I be synning this?

    It didn't make sense to me but I checked the calories in case they were high but they are only 27 cals a stick and you couldn't eat more than one anyway. I don't mind sinning for them but I just wanted to get my head around the logic!

    They are probably blended in some way, so as with any fruit, if you blend it, you syn it.

    I got them in the freezer section in Tesco. They're def not blended - they are like a chunk of pineapple with a stick through the middle and frozen. Makes a good 'fake' ice lolly.

    Sounds great. I will go to our big Tesco tomorrow and have a look. Would have been nice today - it was so hot!

    if they aren't blended do they have preservatives on them? Like microwave plain basmati rice packets - SOOO not free food. Just plain rice though.

    Found them in Tesco. They were in the frozen fruit section - stupidly I had been looking in the lolly section!

    According to the label they are just 100% pineapple, frozen. Can't see why they should have syns.

    Vixxster - re the rice, check the packet. Some of them have oil in them.
