Have been in situations with nothing SW friendly available so this is great to know to try limit any damage when faced with it! Cheers. :)


Not such a fat kat now :)
Thats the first time Ive heard of that, thats great, Is it a SW ok'd method?

No it's not but it's a very rough guide if you need to know the syn value of things like treats and sweets that don't have any free food allowance. I wouldn't recommend using it regularly but in an emergency it can be helpful.
