    Hi Gang

    Well, if you are anything like me, despite it only being January, you are being tempted by the lovely Easter Treats now available in shops.

    So, Auntie CP has put together a list of treats that you CAN have for under 15 syns. Don't forget, syns are there so we don't feel deprived, so try and make your meals as syn free as possible if you want to indulge in your favourite seasonal treat:

    Mini Eggs
    Cadbury Mini Eggs = 1½ Syns for 2
    Mars Mini Eggs = 2 Syns each
    Terry's Chocolate Orange Mini Eggs = 2 Syns each
    Terry's Chocolate Orange Segsation Mini Eggs = 2½ Syns each
    Nestle After Eight Mini Eggs = 3 Syns each
    Cadbury Mini Creme Eggs = 2½ Syns each
    Cadbury Mini Dairy Milk Caramel Eggs = 3 Syns each
    Kinder Surprise Egg = 5½ Syns each (but you do get a toy too!)
    Galaxy Caramel Egg = 8½ Syns each
    Cadbury Creme Egg = 9 Syns each
    Cadbury's Dairy Milk Caramel Egg = 9½ Syns each
    Mars Egg = 9½ Syns each
    Galaxy Praline Egg = 10 Syns each

    Hot Cross Buns
    Standard hot cross bun (65g) = 10 syns each
    Tesco Healthy Living Hot Cross Bun = 9 Syns Each
    M&S Apple and cinnamon hot cross bun, less than 3% fat = 8½ Syns each
    Asda Good For You Hot Cross Bun = 7½Syns each
    Standard mini hot cross bun (36g) = 5½ syns each
    1 slice Warburton hot cross bun loaf = 4½ syns
    ………….not forgetting!
    2 level teaspoons butter = 4 syns
    2 leve1 teaspoons reduced fat butter = 3 syns
    2 level teaspoons extra light flora = 1 Syn

    Miscellaneous
    Co-op milk chocolate solid bunnies = 1½ Syns Each
    Simnel cake, 28g = 5 Syns
    21g Easter Egg chocolate = 5½ Syns
    Mr Kipling French Fancy = 5½ Syns Each
    Cadbury Mini Egg Cakes, = 6 Syns each
    Mr Kipling Mini Battenberg Cakes = 7.5 Syns Each

    Thank you Auntie CP, what a great post.

    I am going to try and ignore the Easter treats. I love hot cross buns, but they're 10 syns each! and I can't stop at one!

    Thanks for a great post Hun, that should keep us on the straight and narrow again!

    If I don't plan ahead I will end up ram-raiding Tescos and eating my body weight in creme eggs!

    Bite the top off, lick out the middle, eat the shell
    Cup of tea is COMPULSORY

    This is the way true princesses eat theirs!

    Jooloo- I am now making it my mission to find out how many creme eggs weigh the same as me! lol

    I weigh the equivalent of 2087 creme eggs- lol

    think I could manage that!

    On the other hand, I have lost the equivalent of 994 creme eggs, so maybe that is my incentive

    No I'm not tempted to buy Easter products etc yet.

    But I was amazed to see Easter eggs and Hot X buns on the shelves in Tesco just after Christmas.

    I was shopping for fresh vegetables for New Year's Day - and they were stacking the shelves ready for Easter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
