    Hi guys, anyone know the syn value of the new Galaxy Counters. They look yummy (just like Minstrels but without the crunchy shell) but have yet to buy them in case I eat them and they are awful on syns, so no nutritional values I'm afraid.

    Just hoping someone has worked them out already, lol.

    Well, I went and bought some but the only bag I could find was huge, lol (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it, although they do have cals etc for a 35g bag).
    For 100g: 529 cals, 6.8g protein, 59.4g carbs, 58.8g sugars, 29.1g fat, 17g saturates, 1.4g fibre, 0.11g sodium, 0.28g salt

    That's all that was on there. I hope it's enough. I will then measure out 100g and count the counters, lol, so I know how many syns in say 10.

    They were probably out about 20/25 years ago initially, not sure when they disappeared.

    Got to laugh at the ads for 'NEW' Galaxy Counters - nothing new about them ;)

    Well 20 years ago I was 13, 25 years ago I was 8, so I think my parents were very mean and neglectful in not introducing them to me!!X

    I remember them in the 1960's when I was really young. I fell really old just looking at the date now!!They had a white bag with animals like a giraffe,monkey,elephant but I can't remember the others.
