    Did I get your attention???? lol

    Ok one of the biggies for me was havin to give up butter esp' in cooking. What I wouldn't have done for a butter soaked baked potato does not bear thinkin about...;)

    Now here's the thing:::::

    Butter Buds....these little darlings are produced by Americas Dairyland and come in packs of 40 each little sachet contains 2g of powdered butter with all the badness removed...

    Ok there is a price to pay...each little 2g sachet is half a syn.

    I used 2 in a baked potato and believe me it was worth the single syn....

    In the UK the only place i seem to have been able to find them is Lakekand but as we have one in Glasgow no real biggie to travel to.....

    No more butter withdrawl....lolol

    Never heard of those, but if something like butter is a real weakness and treat for you it must be great to be able to find a substitute that you can easily fit into the SW plan without it costing too many syns.

    I also used to love jackets with lots of butter, but I stopped having any on them and just picked a topping that was 'wet' so I could mix it in nice!!

    Mind you, since then I have stopped having jackets entirely as they no longer seem to agree with me haha.

    I keep hearing references to Lakeland but we don't have one anywhere near us that I know of. Shame, cos I reckon I could spend a few quid there lolol :)

    We have a brand new Lakeland in Reading which is good news and bad news. Good, because it is a brilliant shop and I love it, bad for the same reasons - can't walk past without popping and buying something!

    But if you don't have one near you they have an excellent website.

    I've had these from Lakeland. They are useful to pop in your bag if you're going out.

    Laddiesboy, the nearest Lakeland to you is in Canterbury. Others in Kent include Bluewater and Tunbridge Wells.

    I don't miss butter or marg.
    I gave it up when I first joined SW in 2002 and have never had it since, even when I went right off course.
    When I first did SW we were given the butter buds in class, and I didn't enjoy them but each to their own, of course.

    This is the info from Lakeland for Butter Buds.....


    Buds®

    Low calorie powdered butter substitute. All the flavour of butter without the fat.
    Produced from real butter, Butter Buds undergo a special process that removes the fat and water leaving behind just the original buttery taste.
    When sprinkled over hot potatoes, vegetables, pasta or rice, they'll butter you up... but, containing only 5 calories per sachet, not your waistline!
    One sachet contains the same flavour as 2 teaspoons of butter (approx. 70 calories!).


    • [​IMG] vegetarian
    </SPAN>
    Ref 6744

    Pack of 40.

    £3.99



    I love Lakeland and always buy online from their website, I get my EasiYo yoghurt mixe's from there.

    Never heard of Lakeland... is it the same as those catalogues you get through your door for Lakeland Plastics? With all the household stuff in it? Is there one in Bristol?

    Yes they used to be called Lakeland Plastic. if you check their website you'll find details of your nearest store. I'm sure there will be one near you as they are all over the place.

    I dont eat butter...hated it when I was little as Mum's philosophy was "if you couldnt see your teeth marks in it, it isnt worth spreading!"
    I will quite happily eat a jacket spud with baked beans without butter, even plain jackets are fine,.....or I use 1tbsp Hellmans extra light mayo at 0.5 syns.
