    Have I misheard something bought

    Heinz Macaroni Cheese, canned 100g[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][​IMG] 1½ Syns on Extra Easy [​IMG] Original 4 Syns [​IMG] Green 1½ Syns [/FONT]

    [/FONT]except a 400g tin, thought this was free. Should I have bought another brand ?

    As always thanks for kind advice.

    Many moons ago (about 7 years since it changed), Heinz macaroni cheese WAS free. It's not anymore so I'm afraid you'll have to syn it.

    Best Macaroni ever is Marshalls Cheesy Macaroni, comes in a box, you make the macaroni up, add the sauce - and best of all - its syn free on green and, and its gorgeous. If I was doing EE I used to flake a small tin of tuna through it and grate a portion of cheese over it - sheer heaven lol

    Thats the one SW meal I really badly miss

    On EE, I often have the co-op ravoili. Is only 1 1/2 syns for the whole tin. I like to have half a tin over scrambled eggs, lean bacon or ham with my 1/3 s.f of tomatoes. It's a lovely breakfast and easily keeps you full till lunchtime.

    If I want mac cheese I would go for the Pasta and Sauce one at 2 syns rather than a tinned one at way higher syns. I always found the tinned ones soggy. Used to eat them when they were free though!

    I've never seen the Marshalls before. I think Asda smartprice Macaroni cheese large tin is 3 on green?

    It's okay, not brilliant but perfectly edible on toast. :)

    This stuff I used to get in Asda its in a blue box, its just the best. Couldnt believe it was free, I used to have it loads, had one of my Hex as cheese grated over the top too - magic :)

    If you like Macaroni you should try it... it more than perfectly edible and it would save you Syns ;)

    Oooh, I'll have a look next time I'm there. It's probably sitting there virtually waving at me and I'm there walking around with my eyes shut.
